My two other friends and I were only there to sleep really so I can't make much of a judgement, although I would have to say it's nothing fancy. Bathroom wasn't too pleasant and neither was the scent of the place at night time - smelt of broccoli or cabbage from the restaurant which is understandable, however it was still... More

The staff was helpfully and very polite, it was a funny and welcoming environment. The rooms are great and my room was especially good, love the bathroom. I wish I could have stayed longer. Great experience and worth the money :D

This is a hotel of exceptional value. It is very well located in Wellington and has 24 hour front desk. As it is an old place there is no double glazing which can mean there is some traffic noise if your room is on the street side; wear ear plugs if needed. Bus service to air port is very close...

I arrived close to midnight on a Thursday and the gentleman behind the desk (didn't get his name; large, friendly island decent man) was so nice and helpful. He routed me to my first destination in the morning and listed some "must do" locations in Wellington. The hotel is just at the end of the CBD and close enough you... More

I stayed in a single room and it had everything i could have wanted. Hotel standard room for hostel price. The staff at reception were all very friendly and I loved the building... very grand. Also good food served in the restaurant and good breakfast. I shall be going back if i ever find myself in Wellington.

Stayed in a shared single room for a night for the Billy Idol concert. Suited me just fine...had what I needed. Room could get stuffy in summer as there was no air conditioning or fan. Friendly and welcoming staff! :)

Not notified of noise from a crossed the street in Downer/Chours workshop before visit (we knew we were staying above a pub that was no... More

Our stay at The Cambridge Hotel was comfortable, relaxed and very enjoyable. It is in a great location to all the great inner city restaurants and cafes, as well as walking distance to museums and galleries and the beautiful waterfront. It is also reasonably priced with great friendly and helpful service.

Well looked after by staff. Good room and good location. Economic too. Facilities were sound and the adjacent bar was convenient for food and drink. I was pleased I could catch up on my laundry and the wi-fi worked well. I would stay again.

Nice looking old hotel on edge of CBD. Tons of wood panelling & a lift with a door and a sliding gate - how cool is that ! would suit an Art Nouveau themed weekend. $20 taxi fare from the Interislander to the hotel door. A block from Courtney Place with its fooderies and bars but the Cambridge has a... More
