I have used the Gonville regularly over the past 10 years and always found it to be clean and comfortable with good friendly helpful staff. The food has always been of a good high standard.
Its central location makes it an ideal place to stay when visiting Cambridge be it on business or pleasure. I am aware that the hotel has recently further upgraded its bedrooms recently so I am looking forward to my next visit. Highly recommended. PA/LL

An excellent stay. Recently refurbished room was smart & clean with a well-functioning wet room area. If anything the storage / hanging areas were a little limited & rather open & exposed.

This was a genuinely dog-friendly hotel with a good quality room provided. Its position opposite a 25 acre public green space (Parkers Piece) was ideal for dog walking as well as being only a short walk to the city centre.

The staff were helpful, charming & informative but possibly the biggest surprise was the excellence of the food available in the restaurant. We have tasted vastly worse in so-called dedicated 'posh' restaiurants.

In summary our stay was a lovely surprise & we would not consider looking elsewhere for any future visit to Cambridge.

Excellent and highly recommended for 'no frills' accommodation. Stayed six nights, really enjoyable. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Twin room, spacious and comfortable. Shower over bath (advised it was bath only before arrival) was brilliant. Free wifi useful. Breakfast good standard each day, plenty of everything. Newspaper at Reception each morning a bit of a pain as it tended to be busy with people checking out; separating this service somehow would be better. Building work at the Hotel was well publicised and was not intrusive during our stay. The car parking facility, position and convenience for town unsurpassed. We hope to go again.

Room Tip: Twin bedded room very flexible and spacious.

A bit on the pricey side but you get your money's worth. Great location close proximity to major locations. Not sure about the food in the restaurant but close to Reagent street with lots of places to eat. Well trained helpful staff. Clean quiet. Definetly deserves all 4 of its stars.

The Gonville Hotel is located on Gonville Place (the A603) which is on the border of the city centre. I would say that it is no more than 25 minutes walk (at a reasonable pace) from most points in this central area and probably about 10 minutes walk from the rail station.

The staff were helpful and relatively friendly.

Room size is reasonable for this type of hotel but don't expect a lot of space. Downsides of the room were (a) no wardrobe (b) the sliding door to the toilet/bathroom is translucent, so if you use this room at night, the light may wake your room mate. What I did appreciate about the bathroom however was the walk-in shower.

The atrium section of the dining area is pleasant but the adjoining room is quite cramped.

A big plus of the hotel is the inclusion of free parking (apparently there is one bay for each room in the hotel).

All in all a pleasant stay.
