Great base
A great base for exploring Cambridge. Surprisingly we were able to check in early, so left our bags and began our trek around Cambridge. When in the hotel, the staff were friendly helpful & attentive.

Very poor
Very disappointing. Service very slow. No bar menu, don’t always want restaurant meal. Parking on site but not advised in advance this was payable. Sign actually says free with minimum spend- spend over £500, so what is the minimum. Breakfast also poor, poor service, and at these prices only get half a mushroom. Waste of money.

6/10 Good

Stayed at the Gonville on the night of our daughter's graduation and made a reservation for the hotel's terrace restaurant. We were initially given the £70 taster menu which had little on it which interested us. After some debate, we managed to get an alternative menu but this too was limited. We all had fish and chips which was ok but certainly not worth £18! The car parking was charged at £17 and the drinks were expensive too. The service was quite poor for the overall cost of the stay. All in all, somewhat of a disappointment and not the celebration we had hoped for.
