We stayed 2 nights on a leisure trip to Cambridge. We try to use Holiday Inns as members of their rewards scheme. The hotel is a motel style layout which means it's a rather straggly layout, but only on two floors. The location is well out of the city which means either driving in or catching the bus. The Cambridge / St.Ives busway stop is about a half mile walk away.
The hotel room was comfortable and quite spacious, with flat screen TV, internet access, desk, chairs and adequate bathroom. The room we had was showing some signs of wear and tear, but overall, no complaints.
Internet access charges were extortionate at £16 / day (not used!), but IHG hotels have announced they are offering it free to reward scheme members in future.
Breakfast buffet was good value with plenty of choice and an exceptionally friendly welcome.
There was a pool and small gym (not tried, but looked nice) and plenty of space in the lobby / bar area with comfortable seating.
All in all, a friendly welcome, a good night's sleep and great breakfast. What more do you need for a short stay?
