The Gonville Hotel, Cambridge
Small room
Room was very small with very little space to place your personal belongings. Bathroom was tiny. If you have a lot of luggage, good luck.

Beautiful but fails on some basics
I stayed in a feature room in Gresham House - it was beautiful with lovely finishing touches, but the doors are very loud and being next to the front door meant I was woken countless times through the night. The staff at reception and in the spa were very friendly and helpful, but the Brasserie staff I found to be lukewarm. The food is obscenely overpriced - I paid £12 for a bowl of linguine with plain tomato sauce, and breakfast cost £19.95 even though the Hollandaise sauce on my eggs Benedict was split and unpleasant.
