The hotel was very quiet and friendly staff made everyone feel welcome. The restaurant food choices were limited on the menu but the food was amazing!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Weejock Home from home!!
Spent 13 nights here on business and I couldn't fault this hotel in any way. Breakfast is more than adequate, staff were very pleasant and friendly and my room was quiet, bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked a treat (it reached 33 C when I was there so thank goodness!!) Was a bit pricey but then I found out Cambridge is pricey anywhere you stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mwtheplumber Good Hotel for an Overnight Stay
Excellent staff. Hotel is on a par with most Holiday Inn, not luxury but then you wouldn't expect it to be. Handily placed for Cambridge Airport.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tedboy Very disappointing.
Stayed here for daughter's Graduation. Was not impressed. Lift out of order. Our room was at the end of airport runway- while having afternoon rest planes were going over approx every 5 minutes- the hotel tells me it handles 2 flights a week! The hotel does not provide easy access to city centre- £12-£15 taxi fare. Poorest holiday inn I have stayed in. Would not stay there again and would not recommend to others

One of the best hotels in this category I've ever stayed at. Convenient for Cambridge, friendly, very clean, working wifi, great breakfast etc, etc. Only extra thing I would have liked is bacon from breakfast...

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cambridgevisitor Uncomfortable bed. Very Limited Dining Options. Expensive
The bed was very uncomfortable.
Evening meal menu offered very limited options of food I could eat and the morning breakfast bar had nothing at all that I could eat. I asked the staff at both meal for alternatives or changes but they were unable to offer me anything. Therefore I paid for a breakfast I was unable to have.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by glurmo Hotel express para una estancia express
Un HolidayInn situado algo a las afueras. Conveniente para un viaje trabajo si se tiene coche para desplazarse.
Habitación pequeña y acogedora, eso sí sin bañera.
Desayuno poco variado pero correcto y el restaurante también poco variado.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Graham 2014 Good Experience
The hotel was easy to find and we were well received by Reception. The room was a reasonable size and ready for use. The only negative was the sofa bed that oue teenage boys shared was not very comfortable However, we would use again for staying in the area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 not recommended
Sorry, but this could have been a better experience! Room was just up to standards, breakfast was poor. The limited choices usually provided by HI express were not available. When asked for water The can was empty), I got no response.
Pillow choice "firm" versus "soft" wast not recognized, and there was no difference.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hurst22 Essential air-conditioning does not work
This is a very average Holiday Inn. Room air conditioning unit does not work and from discussions with staff it appears has not worked for some time.
I recommend that you avoid this hotel during summer months and select another property when visiting Cambridge. My ratings is based on experience of staying at an average 75 different hotels around the globe each year.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Krokusmtl No A/C
I am not sure if it is a temporary issue or not. But during our stay there was no A/C, even though there was control for it. The first sign should of been that small fan in the room. The window only open about 6 in. So it was 25.5C in the room. The staff tried to help by bringing more fans. But still a very uncomfortable night.
The business center has been replaced by tourist pamphlets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Y Mason Quiet, clean, comfortable hotel
I stayed at this hotel for one night with my family for a combined business and pleasure trip, and, overall, we were very pleased with our experience. The hotel is in a very quiet business park, so it's very peaceful at night, which allowed us to open the window for coolness during a very hot night. The room was spotlessly clean, and everything we needed was present, in good condition and working. The beds were really comfortable, which was great, because we were at the end of several very tiring days and badly needed some decent sleep. The staff were all friendly and courteous. For me, breakfast was good, with an all you want to eat buffet, but the hot choices are rather limited - scrambled egg, sausage and beans, which made life a little difficult for my husband, who is on a wheat free, low carb diet. Apart from this, I couldn't fault this hotel, and absolutely would stay here again if I visited Cambridge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Relaxing and comfortable
I always look forward to staying in HIE Coldham's Lane. It was very busy nearly all of the 5 nights I was there but the staff never failed to smile a welcome and the hotel was very quiet once i went to bed. It was an extra treat o see Bourzena back behind the desk and catch up with the news. Highly recommended and only a 10 minute cycle ride into the centre. Steve (regular guest)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Audouin Everything good but smell of smoking
Everything was great apart from fact that someone had been smoking in the room and it smelt. This was a no smoking room. The room should have been aired out to remove the smell. Equally guests should think of others and not misuse the facilities.

A great hotel just out of town. If you want an excellent hotel away from the hustle and bustle of Cambridge, this is it. Very modern, comfortable rooms that are clean and spacious with vey large bathrooms. Would recommend highly this hotel to anyone!

Stayed for one night very friendly staff made us feel welcome. Room lovely plenty of space for the two of us comfortable bed, great choice for breakfast. Staff were excellent offering hot drinks make ourselves comfortable when we had to call the AA out to get the car sorted before we could leave.
Would definitely stay in a holiday inn express again

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TCBC Value
Compared to other hotel choices in the city of Cambridge the Holiday Inn Express is very good value: easy to book online, plenty of free parking; clean, comfortable room with everything you need and a reasonable breakfast thrown in. Breakfast supplies can run out or you need to wait for more when it is busy, but the staff usually sort any issues.
Bedside light was not working in our room which we reported when we checked out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Annielufc Good value hotel close to Cambridge
I was a little anxious about our booking as we had stayed at another HIE in the midlands for a family wedding recently that I had booked several months in advance and on our arrival was told the hotel was full and we were given another greatly inferior hotel. No similar problem in Cambridge though. We stayed for three nights over Easter. Staff were always polite and friendly. We have stayed here before. My only gripe is that our room on level one was next door to the lift and there was an annoying humming noise in the background. I would definitely stay there again as our daughter is at university there and it is a lovely place for a short stay.

Good Holiday Inn Express experience. All good. Parking could be tight but plenty of casual parking on adjacent roads. Quiet although hotel pretty busy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Markmustchooseanickame Very good, handy for airport, bit out of the way otherwise
I've stayed here multiple times. Its a little way out of the centre (so don't expect to walk out of the hotel and be in the centre of Cambridge), its near the airport so it would be really handy for anyone wanting a stop over before flying. It has a nice view out over a small park and lake but is in the middle of a small industrial/residential area. Functional but not exactly scenic.
As HIExpress hotels go this is good. The rooms and public areas are modern, good quality and well equipped. Staff service is friendly and good.
As HI-Express hotels go, it is quite expensive but then again all hotels in Cambridge are premium priced and this is relatively good value for Cambridge.
As usual with IHG the wifi service is poor - even the premium pay for service is not lightning fast and good luck if you stick with the free wifi.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Weltonian Great service with a smile.
Only overnighted, not ideal location for walking into Cambridge but free parking with plenty of spaces. The hotel was full on the night we stayed but still the staff coped and were unphased. Good value, comfortable room and will stay again when in Cambridge.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gerald G Good. Lived up to expectations
Quite comfortable although pillows not great. One was not enough and two was too much.
Wifi was difficult to log in to and required several attempts. Quite frustrating.
Heating was switched off at night so fan was blowing cold air.
