Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by 321Steve Excellent Location
We enjoyed a 2-night leisure stay. This hotel is a few yards from the Whittlesford Parkway rail station, which was great for us to travel into Cambridge city centre, and the proximity did not disturb our sleep. It is also only a few minutes from the M11, so just what we wanted. The only aspect which lowered our rating score was due to the inefficiency of the air-con. Even though the maximum outside temp never got above about 24C during our stay, the air-con struggled to maintain our room temp below 21C - only a small issue, but it did prevent us from awarding 5 stars.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Cints Overall Stay
This was the first time we had stayed at the Holiday Inn at Duxford and we will certainly return if we are in the area. We found the hotel very comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. Overall the hotel was very clean and tidy.

High standard of cleanliness. Very comfortable. Breakfast could have offered more choice. Muesli was poor quality and fresh fruit consisted of just cling peaches and grapefruit.

Uncomfortable pillows made sleep difficult but generally the stay was O.K. Despite facing the rail line, I was not disturbed by train noise. Self - serving breakfast was a bit shambolic as I and several other guests moved from one counter to another.

Rated 2,0 out of 5,0 by greenerm Pick the front of the hotel......
If staying here make sure you get a room at the front of the hotel as the rooms to the rear all back onto a very busy railway line - the free ear plugs in the room are really needed.
Staff are polite - TV screen is small but building and rooms very clean.
Cook food at breakfast was just to say warm - all self service with limited choice.

Rated 2,0 out of 5,0 by Peter.er Great room, terrible breakfast
Check in Saturday evening was first class. Staff were extremely helpful, polite, friendly, professional – a credit to your organisation.
Room comfort and size very good. Shower excellent.
Breakfast Sunday morning was abysmal.
Breakfast finishing at 10 am on Sunday is too early and not good customer service. Resulted in too many guests trying to use the service before the ten o’clock deadline.
We had been warned to avoid attending between 7 and 9 as likely to be busy, therefore went down for breakfast at 09.20. No seating available as all were occupied, after waiting for 10 minutes we were asked to sit in a ‘meeting room’ for our breakfast. Air-conditioning not turned on, no windows open, very hot and uncomfortable (turned on A/C myself to try and make conditions tolerable).
Self service breakfast area was more akin to being part of a rugby scrum, far too many people trying to serve themselves from facilities that were not suitable. The catering provision was not adequate for quantity of guests and unless you were prepared to be forthright and assertive you were not able to get to the toaster, coffee machine etc. The experience was very unpleasant and negated all the good points I attributed to the hotel.
I used Reward Points for this stay but in hindsight should have kept them and gone elsewhere.
