Right next to the historic Parker’s Piece, the Gonville Hotel was constructed in 1830 as a house for senior fellows of the colleges. It became a hotel in 1972 and is now recognised as one of the best upscale overnight stays in the city, which is evident from the moment you walk in. Upon entering, you are greeted by a grand reception hall that leads to the Atrium Restaurant, in which you might hear a pianist or an in-house jazz band. The rooms strike a delicate balance between classic and modern amenities, including smart TVs and monsoon showers. However, if you want to add to the luxury, take a tour of the city in the hotel’s very own Bentley.
