The best of both worlds in Cambridge.

BEST WESTERN PLUS The Gonville Hotel lies at the heart of Cambridge, close to its countless historic buildings. From the world famous University to the many museums, art galleries and theatres, you'll have the pleasure of exploring. Cambridge is truly one of England's most visit-worthy cities.

When you choose to stay in this delightful hotel, you'll also enjoy open views across 25 acres of open park, which means you'll enjoy both convenience and countryside during your stay! The park is a great place to take time out, play sports with friends or simply enjoy a care-free afternoon with someone special. With a secluded garden of our own, the hotel itself provides a perfect place to unwind in after the many sightseeing trips or cultural outings you'll enjoy in and around Cambridge.

From college buildings and other architectural delights, this beautiful hotel is ideal for those seeking culture and comfort. Whether you're strolling through the medieval streets admiring the stunning architecture of the city, or punting on the delightful River Cam that flows around it, you'll be in a world of tranquillity and fascination.

Congratulations to the hotel on achieving their 13th International Quality Award at their assessment!
