Once you get to the Holiday Inn Express in Cambridge, it's fine, but it is a taxi ride from the centre and somewhat in the middle of nowhere unless you are a fan of the David Lloyd gyms which is next door. It's in the middle of a business park and feels somewhat isolated. The rooms are fine for a...

From the outside the Cambridge Holiday Inn Express appears presentable enough. The location is a nice one. Also it is situated in a considerable dip, which means that the noise from the road is quite reduced (except possibly for road-facing top floor rooms). One problem at weekends: the hotel also lies directly under the flight path of Cambridge airport, whose...

We stayed here for a stag night in Cambridge. You cannot walk to the city centre from here so need a cab, but otherwise I found it hard to fault (apart from the eggs at breakfast) Great value in Cambridge. Room & bathroom all in excellent order.

This hotel is clean and functional and what you'd expect from a holiday inn express. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was ok. We read the other reviews and decided to walk to the centre. It is about 2 and a half miles which is a long way despite being flat. Especially when you walk round Cambridge and...

It has been a little while since we last stayed at a Holiday Inn Express but the usual expectations of this brand were fully met. Nice clean and tidy accommodation with reasonable breakfast ( grey coloured scrambled eggs slightly unappetising looking but tasted ok-ish). However what earned this particular location its extra star - felt inclined to rate it a...

Normally stay at travel lodge but stayed here because the others were fully booked and we needed parking. Not disappointed. Arrived early and staff went out of their way to prepare our room so we didn't have to return later. Excellent breakfast in a relaxed setting. Only downside was the forty minute walk into the centre.

Reviewed 23 April 2015 via mobile

Handy for a one night stop over, but no frills and not a cheap room rate either. The rooms are small but adequate, very similar to a Premier Inn. Breakfast buffet was OK, no bacon available the morning I stayed. Room was cold and took ages to warm up, and there was some noise both from inside and out.

Our first time to Cambridge and we chose this hotel because it was the right side of town for the football ground, but not on a major road like some.

The HIE has the usual basic comforts that you would expect, bar/restaurant, efficient and effective en suite facilities. Its location, on the other hand, is a challenge. Near Cambridge airport and a Sainsbury store but not near any other facility or the city centre, it will be a £10 taxi ride from the station. However; the current paucity of such...
