After a lengthy train journey we arrived The Gonville to a warm welcome from the Reception staff. Tired and hungry, we quickly dropped our bags in our very comfortable room and squeezed a booking at the hotel restaurant just minutes before it was due to close. Despite it being practically home-time for the staff, it didn't show at all and we were met with friendly, helpful service from the waiting team. Our meals were delicious. I had a lovely lamb dish - and the waitress' recommendation of a French wine, Tour De Belfort, to accompany it was faultless. Breakfast the following morning was a freshly cooked English breakfast (various options available) and once again we were impressed with the pleasant approach of all the staff we encountered. Although The Gonville isn't typical of the type of hotel we would usually chose to stay in, it was perfect for our purpose - well located for the delightful city of Cambridge, close to everything we wanted to do and see, with a young but polished team who couldn't do enough to please. For a business trip combined with sightseeing, what more could we want?
