Slow service.
Used to love using, this place until the last few times I stayed. Was ignored at breakfast as I wasn't asked for my order, so had an hour's wait for food.

Very Good8.0
Red Lion had an issue so we were advised the day before that we would be moved into the adjoining Holiday Inn Express, very clean, tidy and functional, although with a shower rather than bath, and very poor wi-fi in a no signal mobile data area. Excellent black out curtains and noise proofing effectively handled the party across the road, and the staff in both hotels were very helpful with the parking issues. Breakfast was available in either the Holiday Inn or the Red Lion, we chose the Holiday Inn, good choice of cereals, fruit and yoghurt, a partial English breakfast buffet and a few rolls. Overall a good standard overnight stay.

Not to be missed if in the Cambridge area.
What a crackin' find! Had to stay over on business one Sunday night it was just great. The staff, the food and the room, ease of parking (Free) Considering the age of this magnificent building my stay was excellent. Thank you to all concerned.

Red Lion review
Single Room very cramped and over the main entrance to the pub, so until last guests and staff leave you hear every time the door opens and closes. Shower difficult to achieve a comfortable temperture, be careful not to scald yourself.

Red Lion. Better than expected
Despite proximity to rail line and road it was not too noisy. Lower staircase needs carpet rods properly fixing in place. Bathroom needs shelves for own items. Bedside lamp for both sides of bed. Otherwise lovely. Earlier breakfast option would have helped as missed it by having to leave at 8am. Toast and buffet would have sufficed for an earlier starter like us.
