Holiday Inn Cambridge
Ranked #11 of 36 Hotels in Cambridge
Reviewed 27 August 2013

My son recently got married at this hotel. We all had nice spacious, modern, clean rooms.
The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was good, the service was very good. We had an evening meal here which was a buffet style. The choice was a bit limited and it was a bit pricey at around £17. But, saying that, it was tasty and the restaurant is modern with nice decor and clean.
The drinks at the bar are VERY expensive, so bare this in mind.
All in all i would recommend this hotel.

We stayed in the hotel overnight along with my invalid mother in a family room on the ground floor.
Staff were welcoming and we were able to book in early, leaving our baggage before making the most of the day.
The room and facilities were everything that we were expected. The rooms were spotless and well maintained
Buffet breakfast was ample with a good variety on offer. The staff were attentive and responded quickly to special requests.
The room was spotless and well maintained.
The location is ideal right next to the Histon turnoff on the A14 and just 4 miles from Cambridge
There was ample parking on site and frequent buses into Cambridge city centre.

Stayed Bank Holiday weekend for two nights. I cannot find any fault whatsoever. Clean, large room. Friendly helpful staff on Reception and in the Restaurant. Forgot my cossie so didn't use the Spa or pool which is complimentary for guests. The Hotel has a bar and serves bar food. It's a bit pricey though. We took advantage of the Buffet Meal Deal they offer. £16.99 pp for eat as much as you like. The food was so good we actually ate there both nights. Will definitely stay there again when we next visit Cambridge. We used the Park and Ride to get into Cambridge itself.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 321 and didn't hear any noise which was good considering there was a wedding p...

We stayed here recently for our Wedding Anniversary night away. I found the 'Inn' to be quite posh really. What with a nice pool, and facilities. Breakfast was nice too. Staff are friendly, rooms are air conditioned, it's all good. It is a 20 minute plus bus ride into Cambridge itself, that's the only downfall re location

This hotel is a way off from the Cambridge City Centre, but the property is large and the room size is good. It was mostly clean, although I noticed dust here and there as the white room does not hide it well. Wifi was strong here and there was a television provided, as well as an ironing board, heated towel rack and a hair dryer. Service was standard. My room opened into a parking lot, which looked like it had ample space. There was a lake in the distance, but there was greenery blocking the view. The pool looked inviting and there was a Starbucks outlet in the lobby, although there is also coffee and tea in the room. The place looked pretty good to hold a corporate meeting. I could hear the TV of the room next to ours, but that could be due to the connecting door.

A pleasant stay at the Holiday Inn Cambridge - ideally located by A14 and a good four miles out of Cambridge city centre. We had two rooms and one disappointment was One room wasn't ready until gone 4pm which wasn't good enough. Rooms were clean and modern, no complaints there. Pool and spa nice and relaxing. We ate in the restaurant and the staff were great. One thing that management need to know - the chef had no idea what anything was on the buffet - embarrassing!! Food was lovely though. Great as kids eat free. Very relaxing stay and I would happily stay again.

We stayed, using IHG rewards points, on Saturday night while visiting the local area. Nice reception, good clean, comfortable and well equipped executive room with ready made sofa bed. Struggled to find a good pillow though. I think partner and daughter got there before me as theirs were ok apparently ;-)

Didnt have time to try the bar and the leisure facilities but when in the area again we'll stay longer and take advantage.

Excellent breakfast, and daughter and all the other visiting kids were loving the pancake machine !

No compaints, we'll be back when the opportunity arsies
