I've stayed at HIE Cambridge quite a few times. It does not pretend to be anything more than comfortable accommodation for a short stay. I certainly would not want to spend anything more than two or three nights there.
The rooms are always well maintained, the beds are comfortable and the showers work.
The only area where the hotel always falls downs, in my opinion, is the breakfast. There is a very limited range of hot food. During my last visit the scrambled egg had improved a little but usually it's like yellow rubber. There was no bacon - just scrambled egg, baked beans and sausages. No problem with the cereals.
Finally if it were possible to put in a toaster that takes a lot less time to do the job that would be a great asset. Every time I've stayed at HIE Cambridge so far it has been necessary to put the bread through the toaster twice, otherwise all you get is warm bread.

Excellent value for money - stayed over and got a lot of work done ahead of a meeting - friendly staff, super fast wifi an a cool beer to round things off

overall a good stay. only down side was the cooked breakfast. sausages looked as they had been in a steam bath too long likewise for the scrambled egg?? fruit and cereal excellent.
