I have just spend a night at the Holiday Inn Cambridge Hotel on business. The hotel isnt bad and I hope you find this review helpful.
Car Parking - the car park is large and parking is free - excellent & cant be faulted
Hotel Check-in - this was swift with no issues, again excellent & cant be faulted
Hotel Room - I had room 318, it was large & spacious and very clean. The bed was very comfy, however there were a couple of downsides to the room, the first was that the room was very cold and I could not get the room to warm up, the second issue was the windows had seen better days and were drafty which meant cold air and also noise was an issue.
WiFi - this isnt free and it isnt cheap either, why of why do hotels that charge over £100 per night insist on charging for WiFi, if the room was £40 - £50 a night I wouldnt have an issue but when your paying the rates I have just paid you come to expect WiFi to be included, also as a business traveller this is very important to me - it should be noted that the mobile phone reception in the hotel is awful.
Room Service - on reading the menu the food looks to be amazing, however in realisty the foor is poor / average at best. mBurnt potatoe wedges, soggy onion rings and a pizza that has probably come from an Iceland Box with no taste whatsoever.
Gym / Swimming Pool - these are excellent and I could not fault this aera.
All in, this is an over priced average hotel. Would I stop here again. . . . . . . probably not if truth be told.
