Welcome to the Gonville Hotel

Gonville Hotel has been privately owned and run by the same family for three generations.

Located directly opposite the famous Parker’s Piece and just a short walk from the city’s many colleges and historic greens, Gonville Hotel is perfectly positioned for exploring Cambridge.

From the exquisite décor in every room to complimentary tours of the city in our classic coach-built Bentleys, experience is at the heart of every stay. You can even take a Gonville bicycle to see the city under your own steam, very Cambridge indeed!

Gonville Hotel offers two delicious dining options. A fine-dining restaurant with a British seasonal menu, perfect for special occasions. And our more relaxed, alfresco Garden Restaurant which offers a safe indoor/outdoor experience in an upscale casual environment. Ideal for meeting with friends and loved ones.

Private gardens, wellness rooms, live jazz, a love of dogs and a true sense of individuality make Gonville Hotel the perfect destination for unforgettable experiences and exceptional stays.

Gresham House

Luxury treatments and boutique stays

Gresham House

Gresham House has been lovingly restored to create eight stunning “Feature” bedrooms and three beautiful treatment rooms in the grounds of the Gonville hotel. Each bedroom has been individually designed, inspired by both the history of the villa and the botanic’s of the spa. Original features such as ceiling roses, parquet flooring and etched glass have all been rejuvenated to tell a story and enhance the feeling of history, whilst sumptuous floral fabrics and high-end features create a luxury boutique edge to each bedroom.

Gonville Experience

From Bikes to Bentleys, it's more than a stay.

Gonville Experience

Not every hotel is the same and we believe that our “Experiences” help to set us apart in Cambridge. When you stay at the Gonville, you can take a tour in one of our classic Bentley’s, ride round the city like a local or just spoil yourself in our Wellness rooms. Guest comfort and satisfaction is our top priority and it doesn’t stop with you. Four-legged friends are welcome too!
