Good acception service and nice room situation. The old elevator is my favorite. If you want to know more about Wellington, just go and ask the staffs. They are very kind to answer your questions. Good hotel !

With the price being affordable in comparison to other hotels my friend and I were very happy that we booked The Cambridge Hotel! The atmosphere was outstanding, the room was lovely and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay for a much deserved night out! It ticked all our boxes and even better was it was only a...

The bedroom was a good size, with bed, desk, shelving, sink, sink cabinet and even a TV with Sky channels! It was also a luxury to me to have tea and coffee making facilities in the... More

My friend and I stayed at this place for one night only, and that was enough, by far! The lobby and the outside looks like a really old classic hotel. But as soon as you get further in most things are dirty and basically everything needs to be renovated. The kitchen was dirty, it didn't have cutlery and plates. I... More

The place was fine - clean and neat. Two concerns: 1)the kitchen not being open before 9am on Sunday surprised me 2)the swipe card for my room became unusable for no good reason - I have less confidence in those swipe cards now.

The front desk staff went out of their way to accommodate me. My room was clean and adequately furnished. Sky-TV and Wi-Fi worked very well. Bathroom facilities were clean with good water pressure in showers.

Great little hotel in the perfect location - great value for the room price. The room was clean, a good size and the building has lots of character. I stayed on a Sunday night so not sure what it would be like on a Friday / Saturday when the pub is in full swing but I would definitely stay there... More

The showers had a great size and had serval self. The toilets were quite dirty. The kitchen was very small and disgusting. Around dinner time and... More
