Holiday Inn Express Cambridge
Ranked #13 of 36 Hotels in Cambridge
Reviewed May 8, 2014

If you stay here - you will be a good 45 minute walk from the Centre of Cambridge - or a 10 pound cab fare BUT you will by paying 1/3rd the price of many hotels in the centre. The staff service here is excellent and the facility is clean and well run (I see many HI Express Hotels and this rates highly amongst them). They do not have a fitness suite in the hotel but one can pay 10 pounds to use a very large facility next door - OR just go for a walk on some of the nice trails right outside the door.

Room Tip: This is a nice, quiet site - all rooms are good - but you could ask for a room not facing the parkin...

Dear HannahHughes,
Many thanks for such a lovely review, I am really pleased to hear about your pleasant experience with our hotel especially the excellent service you mentioned! We are lucky to be situated next to the David Lloyd facility and have a location away from main roads, so I am glad you found some lovely walking trails around the hotel. I am sure our Housekeeping manager will be delighted to hear about your comments of the high standards of cleanliness! Hoping to welcome you back to the hotel soon, Kind Regards Kate

Τhe staff were almost rude, uncaring and without any mood to help...!
The fire alarm sounded many times on two consecutive days and nights..!!
The breakfast was very standard.
Not easy access by bus...

Dear Theoni A, I am really sorry to hear of this disappointing experience with our hotel recently, I cannot apologise enough on behalf of myself and the team that you were disturbed by our Fire Alarm, and although this is for the safety of the hotel I can understand how frustrating it must have been for you. I am especially concerned that you felt the team members on duty were rude and you were unhappy with the service we offered, I would like to reassure you that this is not representative of our usual high standards of service and I will be investigating the matter immediately with the team members concerned. I do hope that you can give us another chance to exceed your expectations on your next visit to Cambridge, Kind Regards Kate

Decided to stay here rather than in the city centre as it was much cheaper. Cost into the centre was about £10 in a taxi for about a five to ten minute journey.
Hotel is spotless and very modern with friendly helpful staff. Free breakfast and free secure parking is also a bonus. Would stay here again if visiting Cambridge in the future.

Pretty typical HIE the location lies distinctly out of the centre of town. Excellent nights sleep and quiet although busy. For some reason hotels in Cambridge are pricey but this is ok. HIE breakfast is included but basic. Parking can be a bit tight but plenty of space in adjacent roads. Only one lift which was not a problem but it could be. Staff smart and 'on the button'. Much prefer HIE to PI or TL

Room Tip: I try to get a room at the ends at the highest level

Stayed for one night when on business. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were there before check in but got our rooms with no bother. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was as expected. The hotel was quiet so I was able to sleep without any outside noise.
It was a bit far out of the city centre but, i'd have no issues with going back next year.
