Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Babysitting grandma Comfortable bed and pleasant staff
Bed was comfortable and we slept well and room was nice and clean, only gripe was that we arrived about 8.30pm and car park was a bit dark for unloading car particularly as it was raining heavily at the time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alf77 Excellent accommodation, very reasonably priced
The hotel was perfect for a weekend break, the staff were helpful and friendly, the rooms clean and pleasant and the breakfast fresh and plentiful. Would definitely stay at another Holiday Inn Express after this experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Special Girl Most enjoyable
The room we stayed in was at the end of the corridor so therefore was extremely quiet. Fortunately the weather was fine, for we discovered that the air conditioning/room heating system was not functioning, although it did make a fair bit of noise. The bed was comfortable, the room was quite clean and well furnished although there was no drawer space, and it was easy to find a space in the car park.
Breakfasts were ok...not top quality food (particularly the fruit and the coffee) but a good range of items was on offer.
The staff were absolutely fantastic...helpful, knowledgable, friendly and welcoming. Top marks, and looking forward to our next visit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteveyB Good location, clean modern hotel
Modern hotel, close to the M14 and the park and ride. A filling breakfact was included in the price, with an ok selection of hot and cold items. Bed was new and comfortable, albeit smaller and more bouncy than I'm used to. Staff were happy to resolve the minor issues which arose, but I could not get wifi internet access to work on my phone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Laus99 Great Nights Sleep
Had a wonderful stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Cambridge. The hotel is out of town but is in easy reach of the city centre on your bike (and good that the hotel have good bike racks in front of the hotel). Hotel room a good size and well equipped, only comment would be that the carpet in the room was a bit tired. Bathroom clean and good shower. Good buffet style breakfast. Slept really well.

I prefer a hot breakfast but this does not seem as enjoyable as in the past. Why is bacon no longer available? I would also have appreciated mushrooms and grilled tomatoes for the price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pickyfromSYorkshire Very Pleasant Stay
We enjoyed a warm welcome and were greeted as Platinum IHG members. The a/c in reception was very welcome as it was very hot the day we arrived for a one night stop-over on our way to Norfolk. the a/c in our room was extremely welcome and efficient at cooling sufficiently to enable us to have a comfortable night's sleep. The room was basic but more than adequate and the beds were fairly comfy.
A cycle track runs outside the hotel and we enjoyed going for a stroll in the evening. We had already bought something to eat and drink at the nearby supermarket so did not use the bar or dining room but several people were eating there.
Breakfast in the morning was standard HIE but well stocked and maintained by friendly helpful staff. The eggs were very good and my husband enjoyed the sausages which are often not particularly good.
We enjoyed our short stay and would stop here again.

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.

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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pcmcm If only there was bacon...
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.

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.

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.
