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.

A Gem!
I booked the hotel for our wedding anniversary and it didn't disappoint. On arrival we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. Although no extra's given due to the special occasion, the room we had was lovely with a walk in shower. The Gonville is perfectly located for exploring all areas of Cambridge and the staff are always on hand with tips and local knowledge. Having looked at previous reviews about the lack of car parking spaces at the hotel due to local requirements, we decided to use the park and ride option at Madingley Road. Free parking for up to 18 hours (thereafter £10.40) & £3 per person return ticket on the bus. Still way cheaper than parking in the city centre (normally around £30 for 24hrs). Our highlight of the stay was the fabulous Elliott the concierge! He gave us a complimentary tour around Cambridge in one of the hotel's Bentleys, stopping at the famous landmarks, taking photos and informing us of all the rich history the city had to offer. He also pointed out the pubs & places where the famous used to drink or perform in (will have to come back again!). We felt a bit famous too with everyone taking pictures of us in the Bentley! Elliott was very charming, & very knowledgeable! If you need anything, he's your man! In conclusion, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel - a lovely independent hotel, great location, helpful staff, great selection at breakfast and cookies at reception table to help yourself to at any time of the day!
