Great place to stay while visiting Cambridge and surrounding countryside. Staff really pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly Staff and Clean Room"
The staff was very friendly. I stayed 2 nights. They even warmed a dish that I brought from home for me. The room was very clean and we enjoyed Cambridge. The location was fantastic!Genuine Expedia guest review
On eastern edge of city but can catch buses to and from city centre. Quiet location and clean, efficient hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place when visiting Cambridge for a nite out"
Trouble free experience, good breakfast and the check out time prevented any hassles.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overpriced and pretty basic."
Extremely overpriced for the level and quality of the hotel. Charging extra for wifi anywhere in the hotel these days should be an indication that the hotel is trying to milk. Every last cent out of youGenuine Expedia guest review
"visit to Cambridge"
Good public transport links after a pleasant 10 minute walk.Genuine Expedia guest review

"close to colleges"

Had a weeks stay due to working away. Couldnt have asked for anything else when away from home. Thought the hotel and staff were great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
First time with Holiday Inn, impressed with quality of everything compared to travelodge etc- Will look to use Holiday Inn again when away in UKGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for money hotel"
Good value for money but isolated. In practice need car to get into Cambridge centre. We found no restaurants near by other than hotel. Some noise from trains at rear but not too much.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bad bed good breakfast"
Bed was uncomfortable. Self service breakfast was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent budget hotel on outskirts"
As we had taken the car to Cambridge, this proved an excellent choice. Free parking is worth the distance from the centre, and there is a frequent M - Sat bus service about 10 minutes walk away via the foot and cycle path past the hotel (half-hourly on Sunday) Alternatively you can easily drive to the Newmarket Road P + R. The hotel is in typically […] smart Hol Inn Expr. decor, and a good breakfast including some hot items is included in the price. All very comfortable and pleanty of room in the "Great Room" for breakfast. They also serve an evening meal from a limited menu - good when you have just arrived and don't want to go out again.

"close to my friend and the city"

It was okay because we had a car to take us to the places we wanted to visit. But if we had not got a car, we would have chose a different location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice mid range hotel"
Nice start for our trip to U.K. We arrived at 10pm and checkin was super quick. We were given a room facing the car park and the room was quiet and clean. The bed was comfortable too. We had a car and so going to the town was not a problem. Lots of FREE car parking space. Breakfast, which is a standard offer in the hotel rate, is up to you if you want […] a full or light breakfast. Wifi is free in the dining area / lobby area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Sunday night stay"
Great experience. Covered all my needs. Hotel staff did appear overworked (same person on check-in and bar).Genuine Expedia guest review
"5 minute taxi ride from city centre"
Convenient, reasonably priced hotel, 20 minutes walk or 5 minute taxi ride from city centre. Friendly, helpful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good, but some issues..."
Lovely staff and room. Unfortunately, we had an adjoining room (I assume for families) and the couple next to us were taking part in activities that were very noisy and uncomfortable. If you are planning on staying here I recommend you ask for a room without an adjoining door, as you can hear everything...Genuine Expedia guest review
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here over the easter weekend. In a strange location but accessible with short walk to a bus stop and buses into town even on bank holidays. Only disappointment was lack of hot water on last morning. cold showers had by both of us an hour apart despite hotel not being full. disappointing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nothing to complain"
It is a good hotel to consider if you stay in Cambridge area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Holiday Inn Express Cambridge"
Friendly service even at a quiet time of year (New Year weekend) and helpful with any problems.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Nights Stay, would recommend"
Very nice, clean, spacious & quiet room. It was very modern and nicely designed. Good friendly reception staff. Free Wifi in reception (you have to pay extra to use it in your bedroom). Big breakfast window , 7am till 11am on our Sunday morning, but the quality of it was slightly disappointing (hot food was either over cooked/cold).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Interviewing in Cambridge"
We used the HIE as our base for our son's interview at Cambridge. I would highly recommend this property. The triple occupancy room was more than adequate in size (for UK accommodation). Breakfast was good and free wifi in the great room was of adequate speed. Location is the only issue. Plan on 9 to 10 pounds each way into town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was too small for a family of 4 and the sofa beds were quite uncomfortable. the sink in the bathroom was not draining fast enough. No mention if the water in the bathroom sink is potable. Breakfast was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Express Cambridge"
Clean good value hotel reasonably close to Cambridge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Premier Inn is better."
My stay Thursday at Premier Inn, Friday/Sat this hotel. Premier inn > Holiday Inn Express 1) Smaller room than Premier Inn 2) No hooks in room. 6 Hangers. For two people. - Premier Inn better. 3) Woken by people banging on doors/shouting at 06.30. Pay more to avoid the morons this hotel attracts. 4) Disturbed by male cleaner who did not knock. 5) […] Stain blood/coffee/other on base of toilet door. 6) Free breakfast poorly managed. Poor quality. Little fruit selection And then to share it with morons.....no?! 7) Premier inn serves Soya milk and Veggie sausages. Go there and pay for breakfast instead. 8) No bath! Premier Inn has baths in the rooms. 9) No socket near mirrors. No female guests? 10) Ironing room. Check out the state of the base of the left hand iron. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to airport, thats all."
This was by the airport, but the rest of the town is over a mile away. The bed was also very uncomfortable. The room overall was very nice. The continental breakfast was also the best I've ever had.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place good for holiday but away from city and bus stop as well . All staffs were good and friendly,and breakfast is good. The only concern about refund if you book no refund at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not as good as other Holiday Inns we have stayed at."
We love staying at Holiday Inn- especially express. We find them clean comfortable and good service. This is the first one that we actually had some minor issues with. We were told that we could order an evening meal from the restaurant area bar from 6pm-we ordered at 3 minutes past 6 and were the first people to order-there was only one other couple […] there and they appeared to have not yet ordered. I ordered soup and my husband ordered fish and chips. I received the meal within 10 minutes of ordering and my husband received his meal at 5 minutes to 7pm-almost an hour later! We enquired about the meal twice. The only other issue was that the toilet leaked all night and had a strong odour. These things can happen and I am sure it would have been rectifyed immediately once we reported it the next morning as we always find Holiday Inn well maintained-however I do feel the situation with the meals was unacceptable.

"Will go there next time we are in Cambridge for sure!!"
For this type of hotel, I rate this one as the best I have stayed in anywhere in the world. The Management was excellent, the breakfast buffet 1st class and a very quiet location. Difficult to fault it in any way.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cambridge Holiday Inn Express"
We stayed for one night to attend my daughters graduation in Cambridge. An excellent hotel, which is in a very good location a short taxi drive from the centre of Cambridge. Breakfast was good, with a lot of choice. Staff were very polite and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Non-smoking room, clearly smoked in"
The bathroom was so smoked-in I could hardly breathe. Having asthma, I quickly reported it. I was told they would clean it properly OR they would try to give me a new room. They didn't clean it and I wasn't given a new room either. Add to this the absolutely appalling breakfast service (sirupy orange "juice" and generic cheese, plus dry bread and heavily […] pre-salted eggs) I can't at all recommend staying here unless no other option is available to you.

"Perfect inexpensive base for Cambridge"
Rooms are very clean and cleverly designed. They include everything needed for a pleasant and restful night. The breakfast is plentiful and varied, though not wonderful, certainly adequate at the price. Reception staff particularly efficient and helpful with walking routes into town, providing maps and giving directions. For a cheap stay I think it […] would be difficult to beat this venue.

"Express by Holiday Inn Cambridge"
A good hotel but please do not use the website map for directions as it is not correct. The hotel when called gave a different sat-nav postcode which worked OK.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Express by Holiday Inn Cambridge"
Hotel is unpretentious and adequate - and no doubt convenient if you are using the airport! Staff friendly and breakfast was fine. BUT - try to avoid rooms at the front near the main entrance if you want to sleep with the windows open. We were woken up several times by people talking loudly below our window during the night, and I suspect it was the […] night staff having a cigarette break and being totally unaware that guests were trying to sleep! Also, car parking inadequate and we nearly couldn't find a parking space when we came back to the hotel at midnight - this not helped by three motorbikes occupying car parking slots. It would be helpful if the staff were made aware of the noise issues outside the hotel's main entrance! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Avoid if you can"
Paper thin walls in the rooms resulting in sleepless night! Very tastless breakfast. Strongly avoid if you can!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Express by holiday inn Cambridge"
Very nice hotel. Easy parking. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. They billed my credit card twice for room rent, which I found out few days after my stay. It was refunded promptly when I contacted them. Take home message is, very nice accomadation, but check your credit card bill carefully after you check out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely hotel, friendly staff, poor location"
Despite the info stating that the hotel was just over 2 miles to centre of Cambridge this would only be true if you went through the back ways and by ways which are not lit at night. After cutting through the walkway close to the hotel to travel to the centre we soon found a bus that took us to town but even the many bus drivers we asked didn't know […] which bus would get us back, therefore we had to resort to taxis which ranged from 8 to 10 pounds each journey. (Highly recommend Cam Cabs whose drivers were really friendly.) In retrospect it would have been more financially viable to stay in a hotel or guest house more central than having to pay for four journeys a day (i.e. there and back twice). The hotel staff were superb, very informative and extremely friendly. The breakfast was poor. The hotel was basic, clean and comfortable but the location was just not right for sightseers such as ourselves. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and modern but not close to much"
The Holiday Inn Express Cambridge is a modern, clean hotel with free buffet breakfast and comfortable well furnished rooms. Biggest issue with the hotel is not the hotel but its location. It's not close to the city centre and not particularly close to anything at all except its surrounding business park and airport. If you have a car this shouldn't […] be a big deal, but if you're on foot it may be. There are a number of large outlets and several supermarkets about a mile up the road towards the city centre if you have wheels. Biggest gripe with the hotel is there is no free wifi in the rooms and mobile network reception was awful. I had brought a 3 3G modem with me (for those times when hotels don't offer wifi) and I couldn't even get a signal. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Express Holiday Inn in Cambridge"
The reception service was adequate, I arrived at just before 9pm, which turned out to be too late to get anything to eat in the restaurant. There was no room service at all and unfortunately, the minimum of refreshments - exactly two tea bags, two coffee sachets and four mini cartons of milk contained no biscuits. The hotel is on an out of town retail […] park, so there was no where nearby to eat either. If I'd have known in advance, I could have stopped at a petrol station on the way and picked up something. The room rate was what I was looking for in the area and was OK for a basic, cheapish overnight stay, booked at relatively short notice. OK for business, but for tourists, there are nicer places to stay more central to Cambridge. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
