Cambridge Hotel was just perfect for a trip with two small boys. It was close to everything we wanted to see- Art Gallery, Museums, Cable Car. Close to transport/ bus to the airport. The room and ensuite were lovely, and they'd put up their portacot for us before we got there. I loved the feeling of the room, with a... More

The rooms were decent and the bathroom was okay. More importantly, the kitchen was very small and filthy as a result of being overcrowded. Management responded by making you check out dishes, cutlery, and food labels at reception for a $10 deposit. This was an unnecessary pain on guests, and there were still dirty dishes everywhere. If the facilities were... More

Good location for central Wellington. The staff was friendly, and the place was clean enough, but common spaces like the shared kitchen could have been cleaner. It has a pub atmosphere, so if that's your thing you'll love it (cheap drinks at the bar, lively night scene) but if you are wanting to have a good night's sleep bring ear... More

The cambridge hotel is a good location for every visitor in Wellington: convenient to go to every attraction and eating or shopping place. If the kitchen could be improved, more tidy and organized, it would be better place to recommend. P.S.: It will be very very very noisy at night.

We stayed for a couple of nights whilst visiting friends for a birthday. Hostel is centrally located. We had a 4 bed dorm with a shared bathroom...although given the time of year the hostel was quiet and I never actually saw anyone else!! The room was relatively clean and tidy, although the mattresses are in need of updating and were... More

Have stayed here twice over the past week mainly to catch early morning overseas flights and late night returns. Find the place very convenient and not far from the airport, nice and clean and room facilities for the price more than adequate. No reason why we will not continue to use the Cambridge as a stopping off point.

Hi We had a short stopover in Wellington with our two children. We shared a room with an ensuite. Everything was clean and tidy and relatively quiet. Great location. Breakfast great value for money. Would recommend.
