The hotel itself is perfectly pleasant. The rooms are modern and clean. We stayed on what was the hottest night of the year so far in a very small room with a window that backed out onto the top of the building where the extractor fans come out making for a sleepover in a sauna.(room 29) The heating came on in the morning too, unbearable. I know this is not the hotel's fault as English winters last far longer than summer. The bathroom could do with shower divider as we drenched the room trying to stand up and shower over the bath. We dined in the pub downstairs, but it seemed as though we hadn't booked this threw the staff into disarray. They had to check and double check with the chef if we were ok to order, then gave us a specific time to order, then said the chef was stressed so it was making them stressed. A member of staff was in the toilet crying/or had gone missing over an argument about ice?? We were told to order dessert at the same time as our mains. Could we, couldn't we eat outside?? Very unorganised and the food was overpriced for what was produced. An overdone steak with no sauce. The lady on duty for breakfast in the morning was wonderful and very considerate, and breakfast was a good spread and we could order from the menu. Collapse

Fairly pleasant stay on the whole but expensive for its offering. Room was decent and pretty clean although we had a problem with drainage from our bathroom sink and bath is a pointless size, might aswell just be a shower cubicle. Staff were friendly although seemed to lack training and management until the final morning. I presume the manager must have had her days off on Wed and Thurs. Breakfast service on the Friday was a vast improvement. Our evening meal on the Thursday night was undercooked, both the frozen bought in pie and the pork loin. The staff tried to rectify but the 2nd attempt was no better. Whilst this was removed from the bill it was still a very expensive meal. I would hope this is a one off as I'm sure the food would normally be good. As a chef myself I'm not usually one to complain. Fairplay to the staff who were fully apologetic but I would expect better with these prices. Collapse

Checked in quickly by helpful staff. Room was well presented and clean. We looked out onto railway station but had no issues with noise and had window open too. Bathroom was ok although the bath was small and shower from the tap of the bath with no shower screen. Not sure how feasible it would be but would suggest they scrap the bath in favour of a shower unit. Breakfast was included in room price and we enjoyed a selection of cereals, fruit and toast. The tea and coffee was quickly served and order taken for cooked breakfast. Cooked breakfast was rather average - sausages and black pudding could have been cooked longer and choice for cooking of eggs not mentioned. Staff helpful and friendly. Collapse

We stayed here for two nights as part of a visit to the imperial war museum. It was a bit difficult to find as our sat nav took us to the other side of the railway station and we had to go back to the main road to reach the pub. The pub is on the same site as the Holiday Inn and shares the car park. There was plenty of parking available and a lovely outside area to sit in to enjoy the sun. We were warmly welcomed by the receptionist and given the keys to our room , room 15. The room was at the front of the pub, overlooking the train station but we were not bothered by this at all. It was not a bad size but was lacking in drawers and a wardrobe for clothing. There were four hangers on hooks to hang your clothes on, but I feel that there was room for a wardrobe which would have been better. The ensuite comprised of a bath with shower head attachment, sink and toilet. There was no way to have a shower standing up as there wasn't a shower screen or fitting on the wall to enable this. This did not prove and issue for us, however. We ate in the restaurant the first evening. The salmon was absolutely gorgeous - cooked perfectly. Hubby had the belly pork but was not impressed as the rind was not crackly. Breakfast was very good with a range of options available. Staff were all polite and could not do enough for you. We would definitely visit again if we planned a trip to Duxford in the future. Collapse
