Stayed here 18th April this year for a business trip, was expecting bog standard service, basic rooms and generally unexcited about the hotel itself!
It's a holiday inn express, so do not expect the luxury provided by boutique, 5* etc... because it is not this, nor is it trying to be. It is however a very good hotel, plenty of parking which is free of charge, 10 mins cab ride from Cambridge centre, situated in a modern business park development and I was generally really impressed.
We were met by Marius who was beyond helpful, lovely guy checked us in, very kindly returned my coffee flask to my room where i'd left it in the bar, had a nice chat with us in the evening at the bar and generally had excellent customer service skills.
HOTEL MAIN AREA
nice looking, TV with news in the main bar and breakfast area, bar had a good selection of drinks and served quickly, nice lounge area to sit in and have a drink.
Buffet style, sausage, egg, toast, jams, pastries, fruit etc... no complaints.
immaculate, spacious, SUPER comfy bed and choice of 'hard or soft' pillows, temperature easily controlled, modern décor, flat screen TV with choice of channels and tea and coffee facilities (although only gripe would be to provide slightly more milk... unless you like coffee super strong! but as gripes go that is very very minor!) no noise disturbance from outside, even with the window open.
If you are after somewhere reasonably priced, without the 'frills' but with incredible customer service, clean and perfectly good rooms, then book.
