I loved the location at first for the purpose of working in Newmarket, that was to prove a short love affair as the traffic getting out of Cambridge the next morning was bordering on criminal. Lovely place Cambridge and the people seem very friendly but the stress of driving a car here should be avoided, do as most of the locals do, get on a bike. The hotel is ok, clean and tidy, didn't enjoy the shower as the water temperature couldn't make up its mind whether to be hot or really hot. Whilst l... Read more

Staff are nice and helpful, and this hotel feels less busy than some. Drawbacks are the location and the traffic getting into and out of the centre, but distance-wise it's not far and if you avoid peak times it's only about 10 minutes. Reasonably located for accessing other roads to visit outlying areas; we highly recommend Anglesey Abbey and Wicken Fen. We liked the semi-rural feel created by the grass and trees around the hotel, and seeing the rabbits and birds. Rooms facing the back on the up... Read more

Spent 2 nights here while working in Cambridge. As usual with holiday inn express WYSIWYG. Clean,comfortable & very friendly staff.They really couldn't do enough for us. Rooms were good.Breakfast was good. Only minor snag was its a bit out of town. A £10 taxi ride & there's nowhere to walk to to eat. They do food at the hotel which we did one night & was ok but had a taxi the second night for a change of scenery & choice of beers .

Comfortable hotel located at the far end of a business park. Quiet location with a gym a couple of minutes walk away. The hotel offers a discount day rate if you fancy a workout. Rooms are typical HIE layout with showers but are in good condition and good value for money. Breakfast is well organised and none of the food choices ran out, even during the busiest period on Sunday morning. One thing to be aware of if you're going by car, on busy days, arrive late and you'll struggle to find a par... Read more

When booking a stay at the Holiday Inn - be it in Mumbai or London - you know you will get the kind of service and comfort you would expect from a business chain property. The location was within a short drive from the center, rooms were clean and unimaginative, the staff was perfectly friendly and the food was edible. Certainly not a property for luxury lovers or to write-home about, but it provides comfort and convenience at a very decent price!

Stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of May. Although the outside temperature was quite cool for the time of year and the room (215) faces North, the room itself was far too hot for us. I hate to think what it would be like on a hot summer's day ! The air temperature control unit on the wall just inside the door can be adjusted to cooler or hotter, but this has absolutely no affect on the room temperature. The control unit might as well not be there, other than to control fan speed.... Read more

The location isn't great - it's £10 for a taxi to the edge of Cambridge- and it sits on a soulless industrial estate. However, the staff are friendly and efficient to a person. Check in easy. The room clean, comfortable and roomy. Free WiFi was an incredibly welcome boon (good work HIE). On that level this is a good value hotel. The food is, sadly, mediocre. It isn't poor but rather tasteless and disappointing for £15 per main course. Similarly the breakfast is plentiful and has loads of choi... Read more

This hotel is quite out of the way but pleasant enough. Has been refurbished compared to some other express hotels and the rooms are quite pleasant. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Reasonable if you are on a budget but being more central could be worth paying a little extra for.

Location is not the best, hidden at the back of a very busy business park off residential roads but the hotel itself is modern, clean and well equipped for a hotel at it's price. And at night the area is very quiet. Very friendly, professional staff. Spotless rooms. Decent food available and a bar on site (though typical hotel bar price premium). Very fast free and stable wifi. No faffing about with codes. All in all a perfectly good place to spend a night.

The hotel was a little difficult to find with the GPS but we finally found it. The staff were Ok we had booked a room with a sofa bed for my daughter but no one came to make it up when we had ask even after a second time also. Then in the late night when we got back at 11 pm the night man brought some bedding and we made up the bed.The breakfast was good and free wifi rooms felt a little small but ok.

We found the check in staff friendly and helpful. The room was clean and tidy and what we expected from Holiday Inn Express and past hotels. Our only criticism was we went for a meal there at night, and sat at the table and waiting staff were to and froing with food to other guests. There was a menu on the table and we assumed we would be asked what we want. We waited for a while and finally I went to the reception desk nearby to be told you order at the desk. It would have been good if the... Read more

What a great place. Although quite a bit outside the city centre- the most important things for a Hotel were well above standard. The cleanliness of the rooms was spotless,i could not find any dust,dirt etc anywhere. The bathroom was idem dito. The beds are to die for,stiff and supportive- we had two very good nights sleep here. The staff were kind and friendly....a super hotel and a shining example of a Hoilday Inn.

Arrived mid afternoon to a very friendly and efficient welcome at the check in desk. The hotel is situated in a business park but it was very quiet with nice grounds (plenty of rabbits and squirrels!). Room was clean and well appointed. Breakfast was limited (only three hot dishes) but this is a budget hotel and the quality and cleanliness was high. The only let down of the stay (and thus not 5 stars) was dinner which was not of a high quality being stodgy, sparse and in some cases lukewarm.

I stayed here many times throughout April and May. The staff were great. Always friendly, welcoming and started to recognise me as I checked in. As I was here on business, some days I just wanted to check in and not speak to anyone. They were great at recognising this and just checking me in very quickly with no fuss. I was even offered the same room every time I stayed. The new look and feel of the Express brands is much better than it used to be. I applaud the designer as it is very function... Read more

I stayed here on a Saturday for one night whilst I was in Cambridge for a meeting. The room was basic and quite small, but clean and catered to all my needs. Breakfast was provided, and was a buffet style offering cereals, pastries, cooked breakfast, fruit and there was also a help-yourself coffee machine - great for a mocha lover! The staff were kind and helpful. The only downside was the location. I walked from the train station and it took me a good 45mins-1hour. It is virtually in the middle... Read more

I stayed in the hotel for 1 night in May. Basically this is a good value for money business hotel with all that you would expect from a good breakfast to clean rooms and friendly staff. I would recommend it for anyone on business in Cambridge.

A brief overnight stay, that was comfortable as ever in a Holiday Inn Express. A Saturday night may not have been the best time in the summer as there was plenty of people coming and going which could be heard with the window open. Breakfast lacks bacon!

We booked a family room and were not disappointed. Two large beds and a sofa/seating area with desk - and bathroom of course. The room was quiet and clean. Exceeded my expectations. We dined in the bar area and sadly a bit of a wait on what appeared to be a quiet evening but the food was ok nevertheless - quite large portions so hubby & I shared a chicken burger meal. Children also shared a kids meal (2 under 5s)

It's not easy to find hotel accommodation in Cambridge at short notice. We were visiting an out of town attraction and so I was happy to select an out of town hotel. This is in a fairly quiet location with occasional passing trains. The room was a little small for a family but would have been fine for a couple. The breakfast was great. It cost around £9 - 11 to get a taxi into town and back when we did need to go, but the rest of the time it was easy to park and drive when we needed.

15 of us stayed here for a hen party, it was perfect as a base while in Cambridge. Loads of free parking, the room & bathroom was clean and modern. The bar area was really nice and the drinks were very reasonable. The only thing I didn't rate was breakfast, hardly any choice, didn't really fancy beans on toast, a full English would have been much better after a night out in Cambridge. Staff I dealt with were all very professional & helpful. Would be quite happy to stay here again.

This is a decent place for a work trip. Everything is ok, service is good, but there is nothing which makes your stay very pleasant. You need a taxi to get city center. It is possible to walk (I tried once), but it is not an easy route.

We got exactly what we asked for and exactly what we paid for. Lovely parking, a really nice and reasonable dinner with regional food. A spotless room where everything worked. Extra towels and an iron. Breakfast was a treat; berries, muesli, yogurt, cooked scrambled eggs, sausages, and assortment of rolls, toast, jam and an interesting automatic coffee machine to experiment with. No surprises except there were no surprises. No view it is a business park.

Stayed for one night on route to Suffolk for a wedding, we used the directions from the website and they were spot on. Lots of free parking and a quick and easy check in allowed us to get straight out and into Cambridge. You can walk out of the car park for about ten minutes to the brook pub and catch the number 2 bus to the centre for £4.10 each return. The room was as expected for a 3 star holiday inn and was very quiet facing the back of the hotel. A kettle etc was provided with refills ... Read more

Stayed here Thursday- Sunday and couldn't fault anything about the hotel was brilliant, breakfast was great and rooms were lovely spacious and very clean. The only thing we didn't like as much was the location to get into the town centre it was about a 10-15 minute drive, and was £10 in a taxi which soon mounts up once your going every day a couple of times. Other than that had a brilliant weekend.

The hotel is quiet and its location is very relaxing. Rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet style standard with options. Staff friendly and helpful. The hotel is a way out of the city.

This hotel is a fairly basic, spotlessly clean venue. The bar and food areas are extremely ordinary - not for the romantics among you! The food is fairly limited. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. There is ample, secure parking. It is on the periphery of Cambridge and therefore not the place for those who want to be close to the midst of City. It is up to an hour's walk to the centre, and, depending on time of day, anything up to 40 minutes in a taxi due to heavy traffic. The Park & Ri... Read more
