We came for a fleeting visit to meet friends for dinner & look at my partners old college. I didn't want to spend the sort of sums that the H d V or the Varsity cost so I looked at this hotel on TA before booking. I have had very variable experiences with Best Western but this was a good... More

We have just had three nights at this hotel. The staff were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. The rooms were good as the hotel has recently had a makeover. The breakfast was good and we had a meal in the restaurant one evening. The food was ok but not much atmosphere in the evening in the restaurant.

Was a very nice hotel with friendly staff situated a few minutes walk from the centre of Cambridge. The hotel quality and the room was smart and provided everything needed for a stay in this lovely city. Would recommend and definitely stay here again for another trip to Cambridge.

We booked this hotel through travel agent, and it was really much better than we expected(after 6 nights in a tiny,noisy and expensive hotel room). Great location, just between the train station and city center, and it's near our daughter's school accommodation, so we can even walk to visit her every night. The staff were very friendly and helpful, room... More

The Gonville is a well located hotel for Cambridge town, punting on the Cam and the Colleges. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and the breakfast very good. The restaurant menu is restricted and expensive and there are excellent restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The only criticism was our request for a quiet room resulted in our being allocated...

The Gonville Hotel is a short, flat walk to the city centre.It overlooks Parkers Piece a large park area. On arrival check in was quick and efficient. Our room was very clean and looked newly decorated. The bathroom was comfortable, it also looked newly refurbished. A slight moan, the extractor fan didn't work so steamed up the room . At... More

This is definitely one of the worst Best Western's I've stayed in. At check-in the receptionist couldn't decised whether I'd paid for my stay before-hand or not. I couldn't find the number for room service, reception wasn't answering the phone (as they only had 1 person on the desk), so I had to go down to the restaurant and was... More
