Expensive for what is a very average experience. No safe, no minibar, no local information. The room was spacious but dated. But thing I just can't understand is this: what's with the toilet seat (see photo)?? It hasn't slipped back - it is too small for the bowl! Seriously Holiday Inn, could you not have found a toilet seat that... More

We stayed for two nights with friends. We booked the hotel throught the IHG app and that was quite a smooth process. The hotel was easy to find and just North of the City and the A14.

Stayed at this hotel for one night in September for an evening in Cambridge. £10 taxi ride into city centre and no parking costs or queues. Very quiet location and easy access to M11. This hotel has a gym and spa if you have time. The rooms are clean and new looking.

The hotel is about 4 miles north of Cambridge off the A14 not far from its junction with the M11. It's an ideal base for an overnight stay (or longer) when exploring the area.
