Just back from 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Cambridge. We had an executive room at an excellent price. Also gym/pool/ free for residents. Dinner in the hotel was good as was the service. It was only half full when we stayed so maybe we were lucky. Breakfast disappointing, tasteless cooked food and cheap bread.
The executive block is located quite a long walk from the reception/restaurant area which could be a problem for those who are not too mobile. Room was fine although very over-heated and the pillows were hard as stones. Although not located in town it was only 10 mins to the city centre by taxi.
Be warned about the mini bar, it is computerised so if you move anything around the computer will assume you have drunk something and charge you for it!
City centre hotels can charge £15 a day for parking and the Holiday Inn has free parking although by the time you take a taxi into town and then back again it works out the same.
Our check out was very good. Bill was under the door on our final day, you sign off a card if you agree with the total and just hand it over to the receptionist as you leave - no fuss, no wait.
If you can get the price we got I would definitely recommend the hotel to others.More
