I found this hotel a bit pricey for what it offered. To eat in the hotel they offered a couple of pizzas or chips. The pub opposite which the hotel seems to have a partnership with was fully booked for the next 45 mins so had to drive to find somewhere. It could be noisey at time which I think was due to passing trains. The wifi could be a bit hit and miss as well. I found the leaflet given to make sure you were acknowledged as a platinum/spire member a bit impersonal as it actually said dear pl... Read more

I'm amazed at the prices charged by IHG for this hotel. For sure, you can pick up reductions online that bring the price down to around £75 - £90 per night, but the standard rate can be as high as £150 per night...... for a "budget" hotel! Remember: this IS a budget hotel. The breakfast is fairly basic.... quite tasty but basic. There is no dinner service, other than a microwave pizza at £11 each. Edible but no great. There was supposed to be a menu for The Red Lion pub in the room but none ... Read more

The towels were changed daily and the room was kept spotless. They served continental and English B/Fast and was abundant.

Stayed here to visit War museum it was so handy for it just two minutes down the road. It was right next to the train station for easy 8 minute journey into Cambridge. The room was clean and tidy and the double shower was one of the best showers I have had.

Our welcome to the hotel was very warm and everything we asked for was provided. Our room had the guest bed made up which we hadn't asked for and restricted the space available in the room. We asked for someone to come up to take this bed apart but found this much quicker to actually do ourselves. The trains didn't disturb us too much but the doors constantly banging until the early hours did.

Really modern, clean hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was nice and big. Everything we needed was there. Hotel was next to a railway station but this did this not disturb our sleep. Breakfast was really nice, we had the continental but there was a hot option. Loved the Spitfire decor around especially as I stayed there for a Spitfire event at Duxford Air Museum. This was our first stay at a Holiday Inn hotel, will definitely use Holiday Inn again

This fairly new Holiday Inn Express is in a great position - handy for the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, Audley End House, and Cambridge. Usual reliable Holiday Inn Express standards, and of course the free buffet style breakfast. Good value for money at £60 compared to other hotels around Cambridge. Handy for trains too as is right next to the station, which I though might be an issue due to the noise they were hardly noticeable.

Great base for visiting Cambridge Duxford IWM, Audley End and Stansted Airport. Nearby rail link to Cambridge.Clean, comfortable, well-appointed rooms and friendly staff. Located just off busy main road but not a problem if room windows are closed. Good hot and cold buffet breakfast choice. Hotel is affiliated with the pub next door which offers a wider range of drinks than the hotel's own bar. Great for business or leisure trips.

Holiday Inn Express Cambridge Duxford is a typical chain hotel. Rooms are good and clean, staff is very proficient, but the hotel is rather impersonal and sterile. The hotel is in close proximity to the Duxford aerodrome. We were here for the Duxford Air Legends, which made for pretty hefty room rates. A nice touch though, are the aviation related posters and pictures in the lobby. The hotel only does brekafast and drunks, and very limited dinners (choice of three delivery options I believe). ...

Visited here for 1 night and the room was comfortable and clean. Double bed in my opinion was tiny and our view was the train platform! Not great. Breakfast is a disgrace. The only decent thing was toast. No fried eggs only scrambled which was tasteless sausages were very cheap no bacon coffee tasted like no coffee I've tasted before it was truly awful. Should to take a least out of a premier Inn books.

The hotel is well located on a road side close to Cambridge and it is a typical clean and neat hotel. The rooms are confortable and clean, there is good spare in the room service for relaxing. The TV is a flat screen and with the coming multi country channels. It's just a couple minutes away from the main high way from London and the standsted airport.

Clean and tidy. Helpful check in desk. Unbelievably expensive at £131 for a B&B where ear plugs are provided (FOC) because of the "through the night" trains. Description talks about close proximity to transport links-roll out of bed one side and you're on the train platform. Roll the other way and you're on the A505.

The train station is literally a couple of hundred yards away from hotel with trains every twenty minutes or so into Cambridge with a journey time of ten minutes or so,Therefore ideal location for visiting Cambridge.The hotel is modern but unattractive and the breakfast average with only four hot items of rather poor quality although there is a reasonable continental selection.Room rate I feel is expensive for this hotel unless location is you main concern

Quite amazing really. I have never stayed at an hotel so close to a railway! Our room overlooked the station and was literally within spitting distance of the platform. In spite of this and presumably because of the sound proofing, we had a quiet night's sleep. The room was clean and comfortable, the beds good and the staff were courteous and helpful.

The beds were very comfortable and the room was clean. The room was quiet and we enjoyed a good night's sleep. The breakfast was a most unpleasant experience. We arrived to eat over an hour before breakfast was scheduled to end.

Having squeezed onto the end of someone else's table we then went to get food and drink only to find that there... Read more

Reserved three rooms for a family wedding. All clean and comfortable. Helpful staff at front desk, even at half past midnight provided hot drinks at no extra cost.

Nice bathroom with a very large shower with good water pressure.

Stayed one night while working in the area. As a priority member I stay a lot in holiday inn expresses and this one ranks at the top of the list. Staff were really friendly and prepared to go the extra mile. I arrived about 8 after a long day and really didn't want to go to the pub or dinner so ordered the pizza. Was really impressed when the member of staff offered to deliver it to my room. Would defiantly stay again if in the area.

This hotel is built virtually 10 feet from a main train line and trains come thundering through all night. The purpose of a hotel is to allow people to sleep well. The insulation does something towards isolation of the noise but it is still disturbing your sleep. Who would build a brand new hotel on a busy train line nuts. The Internet in the room did not work at all other than being able to sign in. It worked OK in the breakfast bar. Very new and nice hotel but just can not sleep.
