We stayed for 4 nights and found the location to be perfect. Staff were more than helpful and attentive. Staff would also respond quickly to any issues I had- I never had to chase anything up. Our dealings with Alysee` and Tracy were always pleasant- they were extremely helpful. No question was too trivial to answer. The breakfast buffet was... More

I stayed here on a Friday night as I had events in the city. Location is great, however the staff are really rude. Check-in failed to tell me anything. I parked my car in the very, very tight car park, advised not to use if you have a 4-WD or a long car. During check-in I explained the machine failed... More

The accomodation gives the impression it has been recently renovated and I would describe it as very retro and the rooms are very comfortable If you are flying into Sydney I would suggest catching a shuttle bus to the accomodation as it's just far enough away from the train station that it has the potential to be awkward to walk...

Our stay at the Cambridge Hotel was perfect from the word go. From one staff member showing me through the car park to find a car space, then assisting me with my luggage up to Reception, to each staff member we were served by offering such great service, to the clean and comfortable rooms - with an amazing city view..........

We like to explore a place by foot we loved to simply walk around town during our stay and the hotel is within walking distance of many sights (Australian Museum, Botanical Gardens, Sydney Tower, Darling Harbour....), so for us, it was perfect! By chance we got a free room upgrade and ended up in a super comfortable 10th floor room... More
