With the River Cam, the Cambridge University Botanic Garden and the Fitzwilliam Museum all within a 10-minute stroll, The Gonville Hotel is an ideal base for exploring the historic city of Cambridge. The deluxe hotel overlooks Parker's Piece, a picturesque 25-acre stretch of parkland.

Bedrooms were recently refurbished and all feature specially commissioned photos of Cambridge. Upgraded Superior rooms are more spacious and include extras such as bathrobes, slippers, soft drinks and fresh fruit.

The hotel has added a high-tech concierge system as a standard feature of each bedroom. Guests can make requests for room service and ask for concierge assistance at the touch of a button, using an in-room iPad. Rooms also offer free Wi-Fi.

The Atrium Brasserie serves a range of food using locally sourced ingredients, from upscale classics to afternoon tea with scones, finger sandwiches and seasonal cakes. Highlights include rack of lamb, Asian-spiced duck breast, pan-fried sea bass with crushed potatoes and a mussel, bacon and cider broth, and local Cambridge cheeses. You can enjoy an aperitif in the hotel's secluded garden before dinner.
