Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This Holiday Express is extremely clean with free parking. The hotel is located within one minute's walk from a supermarket, petrol station and other shops.

Staffs are friendly and welcoming.

The only fault I could find was a loose and wobble toilet seat.

The hotel is newly opened so everything is immaculate. Check in was fast and friendly. The staff were some of the most efficient, hardworking and friendly you could find. Breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold food but was very busy towards the end of service , however staff managed to keep everything available and clear tables. My only reservation is the room size, they are small with one of the beds in our twin bedded room positioned up against the window and barely enough room to walk past the bottom of the bed. The shower room was equally small, you have difficulty if two of you try to use it at the same time.

Having stayed in many holiday Inn express hotels this is the best by far. It is new, clean and comfortable. The beds are standard IHG beds so firm but comfortable. The reception areas are well appointed with comfortable seating. Although the menu is a standard menu there are several take out or eat in options a walk from the hotel and they are very happy for you to bring food in and use the dining area. The breakfast was very good and the bacon could compete with many more expensive hotels. The staff are without exception very friendly and helpful. Would certainly stay again.

We stayed in this hotel for one night and didn’t sleep at all. The bed was rock hard and the pillows massive. We asked reception for an extra duvet so we could lay on top of it to try to provide some cushioning from the rock hard bed and were met with resistance, the manager did finally give us a second duvet but I want forthcoming and this request seemed to overwhelm him customer service either. The hotel is stylish due to being brand new but that means nothing if you can’t sleep. Not helping that was the fact that the fire alarm went off and left us standing in the car park shivering for 30 mins during which there was no staff communication to let us know what was going on. Breakfast was seriously lacking, there was nothing we could eat as vegan guests. Also to note, the pillows are feather as standard so if you’re a guest with allergies or an ethical vegan you might want to contact the hotel ahead of arrival so they can change them to fibre filled bedding - and be quick, they only have two fibre filled pillows in the entire hotel! - though obviously I’d just recommend you give this hotel a wide berth instead!

With regards to the breakfast vegan choices, please accept my apologies. I am pleased to inform you that we have now full vegan choices available with an appropriate signage at the breakfast buffet for guests to enquire. It is my hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve you.

We used this hotel as our base for a weekend in Cambridge and overall we enjoyed our stay.

It’s a very new hotel and the interior design overall was great. Lots of nice design features in the room allowing it to stand out as a modern hotel.

Large free car park outside with EV charging points (bring your own cable). Check in was a little slow as the check in guy was serving behind the bar at the same time.

Room was comfortable and the bathroom was modern but very small (except the shower which was a decent size) - overall fine for a short stay.

Breakfast is included in the price - bacon, beans were good, sausage and scrambled eggs poor. Hot drinks great but orange juice was just orange water.

Would happily stay here again.

We had a great stay. The room was really well designed, clean, and the bed was so comfortable. The bathroom and shower were nice too, great use of space.
We were on the ground floor by the car park. It was surprisingly quiet, and the curtains had no gaps, so kept out any external light. We slept so well!
There is an open plan bar, lounge and reception area which had a nice chilled vibe in the evening. All the staff were really heplful, efficient and friendly. I would definitely recommend.

excellent newish hotel close to M11 and Cambridge.
room 151 with Sofa was spotless and fresh. everything you need in the room but no fridge which i think is normal at this price point.
buffet breakfast was faultless , all the staff were attentive and Schubi went above and beyond to cater for my coeliac wife with G/F toast etc though they may get a toaster for the next G/F customer as Schubi had to brilliantly improvise.
Parking was free and plentiful and Morrisons just round the corner for fuel and anything else.

We stayed one night here on holiday and were very pleased. Front desk staff was always very pleasant and helpful. Room was roomy and well equipped, but I did wish there was a desk. Complimentary breakfast had a good variety of items and was kept well stocked, even though they were very busy that morning. Location was nice and quiet, being on the far outer reaches of Stanford.

We stayed at the holiday inn express at Cambourne during a weekend away in Cambridge. This hotel is excellent, really nice and modern with ample parking. We were really impressed with the room, great design, lovely shower etc. We were also even more impressed when we found out a cooked breakfast was included in the price. Absolutely fabulous. We will definitely return.

Overall decent hotel, comfortable, clean, good shower, nice breakfast (the eggs were very good).

The location is very convenient if you want to be in Cambourne, which is a small walkable town.

There's a morrisons nearby, as well as a cafe (Greens), and pub (Monkfield Arms).

The staff appeared to be a little confused checking us in and I got the impression they were either new, or there was an odd system in place.
