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

We stayed as a couple in an ensuite room on the 1st floor, the bathroom was compact, only one at a time but the bed was SO comfortable, lovely electric blanket and flat screen TV. They could save lots on water if the shower had a water pressure control (it was gushing) and they could save lots on laundry if... More

After traveling in a camper van for a week a room at the Cambridge hotel with a shared bathroom was perfect for our needs. Comfortable beds, secure, great location. It wasn't noisy at all on the Thursday night that we stayed.

I arrived to the hotel at 10:30 pm after a hard day! It was a nice surprise to have the concierge reception that was so welcoming, warm and friendly. The central location is brilliant and the facilities are great. I'll be coming back to thew Cambridge when I'm in town, thank you guys!

When I walked into the Cambridge it was everything I expect of a well kept heritage hotel. The location, general upkeep, style all fit. I also knew that it was a backpackers hotel so I expected it to be noisier than the Motels throughout New Zealand that I mostly stay in when travelling there. When I arrived in my room... More

This was a lovely place to stay when by myself. The eight beds room was comfy enough and the other travellers were considerate. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful and more than I expected for $3. A great place to stay on a budget.

We enjoyed the old cage-style elevator, woodsy atmosphere and pleasant reception folks. The room was very small, bathroom even smaller! Still, it was comfortable and well-located. The elevator was near our room and very noisy - particularly at 12:30 a.m. It was supposed to be locked down at 11 p.m. That was the first night. The next night we were... More

Just spent one night in the Cambridge Hotel with my 2 girls 11 and 19, an all girls brief visit to Welly to see Miranda Sings at the nearby at Courtenay Pl, St James Theatre. My girls loved the place. It's not new, but it has that comfortable homey feel. We were up the street side second floor with traffic... More
