I was impressed immediately by the friendliness of the staff. The room was nice and the food in the adjoining cafe was very good as well as their staff helpful in recommending where to go for the day. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Service is good. Location is Ok, not so convenient. Because if by walk, we need to take long walk to station. And bus service is not frequently. Cleanliness is very good, but may be can still improve some.

A great location- very close to Oxford St. However furnishings are dated. There are no fly screens on the windows/sliding door onto the balcony, so if you want fresh air, it's at the risk of having flies or mosquitoes in the room. We had two rooms- one had a balcony and nice street view. The other room had a terrible... More

Your Review I had stayed in another hotel in Stdney earlier in the week. It was more expensive , the rooms were tiny, and it was very noisy. Cambridge was recommended by a friend. It was a wonderful choice and I will be recommending it to others and hope to return .
