5/5 Excellent

Great location for exploring Cambridge with most of the main sites within a reasonable walking distance. Warm welcome from the super efficient reception staff who were ready at any time of day to help with enquiries. All the staff in the hotel gave a first class customer service. We were in town to celebrate our friend’s 40th Anniversary so didn’t get a chance to try out the restaurant but called in at the bar for a nightcap - a very enthusiastic barman served us with excellent cocktails. Our room at the back of the hotel was spacious, well equipped, comfortable and quiet. Will definitely return!

This was our 2nd stay at The Gonville. Literally our favorite hotel in Cambridge. I will not stay anywhere else. The staff is incredibly accommodating, the rooms are spotless and beautiful. I consider myself to be extremely picky when it comes to hotels and The Gonville is absolute perfection.

4/5 Good

Our room was small with a view of the front parking lot. Room was characterless. It had been recently renovated with glass top furniture. Storage space was limited. The bed was high, nice for sleeping but uncomfortable for sitting to watch tv or read. Overall, the hotel was expensive for what it provided. The location is convenient, near Parker’s Piece and close to the station.
