The Gonville Hotel, Cambridge, United Kingdom
Great stay would return
Great location and pleasant staff. On Emergency Vehicle route but did not bother us as we are used to external sounds - it's an urban environment after all.

Nice bedroom.
An overnight stay while attending a concert and going to dinner. The bed was comfortable and the room clean and well-prepared. Beyond that we barely bothered the hotel so cannot comment.

Very welcoming reception. Fantastic food. The complimentary cookies,water,toiletries etc were a lovely touch. Staff in general were happy to help, chat, or part information if and when needed. We stayed for 3mights and would certainly go back again.

Very Good8.0
Comfortable hotel with exceptionally helpful and friendly staff. Best I have encountered in a long time. The soundproofing in room was poor and this affected my sleep. I think at 4* tea and coffee should stretch beyond instant coffee and uht whole milk, though this is perhaps fussy of me. We only realised on arrival that we did not have breakfast included. £20 a head seemed extortionate though the excellent staff were very helpful in helping us find a great place very nearby.
