A new Holiday Inn Express is due to open in Cambourne in January 2022.

The 144-room hotel is being developed by Molo Hotel Group on land between De La Warr Way and Back Lane, where Hertfordshire-based brewer McMullen will also build a new pub.

Molo’s asset manager Stephen Bench told the Cambridge Independent that there was now good progress on the hotel.

“The project build has started well and remains on track to be completed by the end of November this year,” he said.

“We are very much looking forward to opening the hotel in January 2022. The hotel will be Holiday Inn Express with 144 rooms all with en-suite bathrooms and well equipped with modern facilities and high-speed wifi.

“The hotel will also have its own restaurant and lounge bar and a meeting room, perfect for small meetings.”

The developer took over the project from SBH Cambourne Ltd in autumn 2019 and is using what it described as “innovative modular bedroom technology” for the hotel, which is to be called Holiday Inn Express Cambridge West, and will be “wrapped in a façade which reflects the local character and aesthetic of Cambourne”.

The hotel will be operated under franchise from IHG, which owns the Holiday Inn Express brand. Molo has employed Barnes Construction for the work.

Meanwhile, McMullen’s joint managing director Heydon Mizon told the Cambridge Independent that work will start on its as-yet-unnamed pub once certain works are completed on site and other projects have progressed.

“We have several new pubs that have been delayed due to Covid working restrictions. Once these are ready, Cambourne will be next,” he said.

The McMullen pub will sit on the same parcel of land, off Back Lane, near to Lambert Lake.

Permission for the hotel and pub was granted in 2018, and construction work began in 2019, but was halted until recently amid the pandemic.
