Spent last night at the hotel, first impressions were good, beautiful hotel inside and out. But unfortunately as we checked in we were told the restaurant was out of use because of a Christmas party (which we didn't mind too much as we went into Cambridge for dinner) but then when we arrived back around 9pm, there was no spaces...

Shockingly slow wifi and at a £179 for one of my nights' stay I am not about to pay more to have my speed upgraded. Thankfully the majority of IHG hotels give you a workable service as standard. With over a 100 IHG nights this year, home and abroad, I was disappointed that there wasn't even a bottle of water...

A couple of issues but they were dealt with immediately. The staff are lovely and go out of their way, particularly Herby. He's a great guy and a credit to the hotel, he always recognises us and makes us feel welcome. Breakfast was good (particularly the pancake maker) good quality and well cooked.

This is a perfectly good hotel to stay with friendly staff, clean rooms and decent breakfast. A little way out from Cambridge, but then driving into the centre can be a nightmare. Big let down for this hotel as a business user was the Internet access. Even in their conference area the quality, consistency and strength of wifi was rubbish...

I use to work in this hotel 26 years ago when it was a Post House and 4 star. This hotel is now a 3 star and carries them fairly well. Friendly staff, clean and tidy and easy access to Cambridge but not walking distance. I paid a last minute rate of £80 which was amazing value. This hotel has...

We stayed here on a Saturday and Sunday night in order to visit Cambridge. The Milton Park and Ride is only a few minutes away from the hotel. We were allocated a ground floor room as requested and advised that there was a wedding disco that evening so we could have a room away from any noise. The room was...

The Holiday Inn Cambridge is easy living if you want to visit Cambridge for Business or pleasure. The tariff is not too high and the hotel is very clean and well appointed. The staff are all helpful and well-trained. The hotel has a well-equipped leisure club and decent sized pool. The bar and restaurant are light and airy, if a...

If your business or travel interest is in the city of Cambridge, you'll be better off to stay within the city centre. This place is a bit away from it all and you'll find yourself driving back and forth from the city. Location is a disadvantage. They do serve breakfast and parking is free. So, that's a plus. The property...

Stayed for a weekend package at a very reasonable rate of almost half the cost of city centre hotels... for which you also pay parking charges whereas this was free. Very welcoming staff in all locations. Stayed in an executive room which had some nice features like fridge and recliner chair. Breakfast was of a very high standard, well presented...

We were travelling from the North East to the South West and booked a stopover at the Holiday Inn Cambridge. We'd been here before and, as usual, the reception staff were welcoming and efficient. Our double room was clean spacious and quiet with good internet reception. There was plenty of coffee but we would have preferred a biscuit rather than...
