Staff were very helpful, friendly and accomodatin. Our room was upgraded on arrival which was a nice touch. The hotel is a very short walk from all of Cambridge's main sights. Highly recommended!

Good location

Ideally situated between the railway station and the city centre. Friendly staff in bar and reception. TV and bathroom were both quite small in a standard room.

First trip to Cambridge

Pros: Everything was annopunced in the experience section.
Cons: If you want to find a hair in the soup, you will find one. But for the time we spent, I really don't know what could be improved - sorry ;-)
Location: For those who are interrseted in technique or aviation - the WWII museum in Duxford would be an excellent choice.
As an evaluation specialist I saw many hotels all over Europe. So few in Bitain as well, but none of all provided such an excellent service as the Gonville Hotel in Cambridge. The service personal is very attentive and fast. Breakfast, dinner or bar was always a pleasure and delicious. The accomodation was very cozy. At this point I like to thank each involved employ even those who worked in the background and has not beign seen for the great stay. We really look forward to come again. The only tiny little minus was the temperatur in the room. But this sommer really hot in any meaning. So the AC was not really able to cool the room down for a super comfortable sleep. So many thank for the great time.
