Holiday Inn Express Cambridge
Ranked #13 of 36 Hotels in Cambridge
Reviewed 23 March 2014

This hotel is good for one night but if you stay longer you will need to eat out. The hotel is clean, modern and bright with decent bathrooms. Rooms well set up for business with desk, good lighting and free WI fi. However breakfast is poor unless you want cereal and toast, hot food needs improving and very little fruit on offer. Dinner is only ok but you run out of the good options after two nights. Choose carefully and don't touch the fish. However, the staff are wonderful, very friendly and helpful and the place has lots of parking and is quiet, so mixed bag really.

We stayed here for one night, it's good, about 25 min walk to cambridge, I would probably not recommend walking that route at night or on your own but it's fine during the day.
Taxi back was about £18 fare.
Clean and comfy and breakfast was a minimal selection but fresh and tasty.

This is a fairly new Holiday Inn express, the rooms are clean and modern although not massive rooms. It does have on site bar and food is available. They serve breakfast too which is mediocre
at best. The prices here are usually much cheaper than in town and no cost for parking either. It is situated right next to David lloyds fitness center and they have an arrangement so you can use their faclitlies for a fee - so if you desire a good gym with good classes next door then this is a good place to stay (thats why I stay here)

It is situated on the out skirts of town - 40min walk into the city center. There are pubs and restaurants near by on Mill Road but still 15 min walk.

This was the second time I've stayed in this hotel. It was only for one night, while waiting to meet my son and grand daughter at the airport, but it was very comfortable with a spotlessly clean room and bathroom. The room was well maintained with the air of being well looked after. I'd requested a room in a quiet part of the hotel which is exactly what I was given. The hotel was virtually full including a large party of what looked like footballers. However the around my room was peaceful. The breakfast was sufficient but the choice of hot food was very limited. As I booked through a hotel booking site I thought the price could have been lower. However I would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: If you want peace and quiet ask the staff for a quiet room. They were very obliging. Also ask for a...

We stayed for one night for a concert at the Junction.

Room: Standard holiday express room, clean and tidy. Bed was very comfortable.
Location: Good parking, quiet a long walk to Cambridge centre.
Breakfast: Lots to eat, no queue, very nice.
Noise: Very quiet
Staff: Very friendly and helpful.
Price: Seemed a little expensive, but generally ok on value for money.

Overall: Standard holiday express with friendly staff.

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay at our hotel! I am really pleased to hear that you found the room cleanliness of our high standard and had a comfortable nights sleep. Although the hotel is located in the city centre, I appreciate that the walk may have been quite tiring, our staff are always on hand to book taxis and give directions to the nearby frequent bus service should you stay with us in future! I do hope you enjoyed your concert,
Kind Regards

Kate and Team Cambridge

we stayed in the hotel in December 2013 (the New Years). It is very clean, the staff is polite and always helpful. The room was amazing: a big, very comfortable bed, a tv and a sofa; it also had a great shower in the bathroom. Breakfast was good but a bit limited (same things every day and not a big choice). The location is not really good unfortunately but it's not a big problem, as there's a train station just next to the hotel. I definitely reccommend Holiday Inn Express, it's one of the nicest places I stayed in.

We stayed her over a weekend, prior to a Hospital appointment at Addenbrooks on Monday morning. Due to health reasonswehadto have oxygen in our room, which was delivered the day before we arrived, and the staff were very understanding about this.
The staff were great, and couldn't do enough for you.
The bedroom was great, clean and had a fantastic shower, as well as a flat screen TV and kettle etc.
There is ample free parking, and a bar, a tad expensive but you are a privet audience.
Breakfast was more than adequate, with a decent choice of hot or continental.

A very good stay, and based on this we will be back.
