Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jane 1967 Great Stay but food a dissappointment
Great stay in a lovely comfy room (beds were super) even though only for one night!
Treated family to a stay at the Holiday Inn so we could visit Cambridge.
Used the swimming pool which was ok but was a bit chilly to my liking.
We decided to eat in the hotel in the evening as was too late to drive out somewhere but on viewing both the restaurant menu and the bar menu they were both the same!!
There was a good selection and although we expected that eating in the restaurant would be more expensive we thought we would opt for a bar meal and a more simpler choice of dishes which would appeal to our children but dishes were same as restaurant and same price!!!
We opted for rump streak as a treat and then when ordering there wasn't any so ordered the burger and fries which was below average for the price (prefer Mc Donalds) - would have been good to have a choice such as spaghetti bolognese and roast chicken with veg and gravy - something normal for the average person with an average wallet.
Given an overall rating as average because of food/menu not to my taste sorry

The stay was wonderful, apart from sunday lunch at the bar, one of the bar staff was very rude to members of our group and told off a member of staff in front of some of us, we felt that what had gone wrong was not that member of staff fault, otherwise the staff where wonderful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by diamondgirl Not impressed
Stayed here for one saturday night, was not really impressed.
It is just a glorified, less cheaper, chain hotel, but double the price. In fact beds are more comfortable in these competitors!
Although cleanliness is good, beds are not very comfortable, and poor sleep, as noise from people walking in rooms above woke us up, poor insulation.
Although the website advertised an inclusive afternoon punting on the Cam, this was not the case, and the receptionists did not seem to know anything about this.
Information re buses into Cambridge was conflicting from front desk staff, and this bus service was poor, therefore would not recommend anyone without a car. or anyone who does not want to pay high car park fees in Cambridge to stay here.
