Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CB1984 Cannot sleep
On arrival the hotel is stunning, the room is perfect for business use and could almost make it home. The restaurant/pub next door was excellent food, a great wine list and fantastic service. Could not have been happier on my first impression
However the following morning things turned sour
The proximity of the hotel to the railway station needs to be better advised or a solution to be made. I note that there were earplugs left in the room but this does not constitute the vibrations which woke me up abruptly
The breakfast seemed a disaster with very little choice and poor quality. The whole buffet area was unclean. I marked my shirt when I lent against the table and the remnants from the previous diner was there. Not great when about to go to a business meeting.
Such a shame from how great the evening was to how poor nights sleep and the morning service was

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Janette4 Handy for airshow
A great hotel in excellent location. Very close to Duxford air museum, trains to Cambridge and motorway. Great welcome from staff. Loved the meal they booked for me at the pub next door. I will definitely return for next year's air show weekend and have already recommended it to others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zaplutus Clean and comfortable
Had a good stay - room very clean and the property looked quite new. Breakfast service was a bit "school dining hall" but food was perfectly adequate. Hotel is a bit isolated if you don't have a car but rail station is just next door.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roosterjay Convenient for Red Lion functions
Nice hotel and well positioned if you're at a red lion function. Right on top of Whittlesford railway station, so much so that they provide you with ear plugs, not that we needed them as trains are very quiet. Also be aware that the hotel is right on top of a busy road so some rooms are noisier due to this. Rooms were well appointed although our bed was definitely due a mattress change. Other than that, all's good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Speedyone Good staff but bed too soft for us
We are used to firmer bed for a comfortable sleep, but never the less we enjoyed our stay with friends and found this to be good location for visits to Duxford and Cambridge. Railway journey was quick and close by. We may well stay again to explore more of Cambridge.

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.
