I am a frequent guest to Holiday Inn hotels and this hotel was amongst the most friendliest I had visited. Check-in was fairly quick and painless and was located in a clean modern hotel lobby/bar area at the front.
My room was well presented and maintained, and the bed was very comfortable. They are soft mattresses which I know some people are not so keen on. I had a friend staying in the room next door and their was largely the same bar a few cob-webs and scuffs on the paintwork.
I stayed for dinner on a Saturday night and it was a carvery, the food was excellent and the portions were more than you could eat - well, self service for you. Breakfast the next morning was very good too, a full choice of England, Continental, and more. The only problem is that towards the end of service, things like pastries and jams can be scarce, so get them when you can. Again, the restaurant staff were very friendly and remembered our faces the following morning too.
The other facilities were good, the pool and gym served their purpose very well and needed after the excesses the night before!
One final positive, which could also be considered a negative is that the hotel is located in a nice scenic location with some large neighbouring lakes but it is bordering a busy dual carriageway and a good distance from Cambridge centre
A tip perhaps is that there is plenty of free parking on some of the suburban roads/avenues about 0.8 to 1 mile out of town, it is certainly easier than walking the full distance from the hotel.
