Recently stayed at The Gonville Hotel in Cambridge using Tesco Clubcard vouchers. Hotel very good - in a great location for shops, restaurants etc. Room excellent, breakfast very good and staff very helpful and pleasant. Ample free parking. Would definitely recommend if you are visiting Cambridge.

We stayed here for three nights in early April and found it an agreeable hotel, and quiet. My husband walks with a trolley, so the spacious disabled room, very close to the bar and restaurant, was ideal, though the view over the car park was less so. The bed was comfortable, and the staff very helpful. We appreciated the car... More

Clean, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. It's located in front of Parker's Piece, so it's just a 10' long walk to the city centre. It's not one of the cheapest options, but I was not disapointed. It has a wide offer for breakfast.

I stayed for three days while on a business trip and was delighted with the hotel. Room 112 was fantastic, the service from all staff was exceptional and breakfast was held in the pleasant sunny restaurant with loads of choice and meals cooked to order. Handy for city centre and parking. Water bottles left in room every day. I loved... More

Good hotel in an excellent position. 10mins walk from the historic centre. Good size room, free parking and free wifi are positives. Breakfast in the Atrium was OK. Only negative was the concrete beds. Why hotels don't understand that the bed is an important element of a good night sleep and therefore an excellent stay.

We have stayed at the Hotel felix on a couple of occasions previously but the location is not the best. Also, our previous visit was not the best so we looked for an alternative. The Gonville was ideally located to stroll into Cambridge a 10 minute walk and as with some hotels there was no overnight charge for car parking.... More

A perfectly pleasant place to stay and within walking distance of the centre of town. The staff were friendly, the hotel was clean and the rooms nicely appointed. I believe they're renovating the hotel over time as the rooms seemed recently furnished whereas the reception needs some updating. We didn't use the restaurant so cannot comment on the food. Free...

One night stay. Uninspiring reception but very nice welcome. Had a twin room which was very nicely appointed and had comfortable beds. Modern bathroom and plenty of hot water.

Dear Milport18 Thank you for your review, we are delighted to tell you that soon our uninspiring reception will have a make over and will be looking fabulous! We thought it was more important to get the guest rooms refurbished first before moving on to the public areas. We have recently finished the Atrium which as you say is airy... More
