4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed in a single room with private bathroom. Room and bathroom are both clean. Everyday when I arrive its been cleaned already. Best thing about this hotel is its proximity to CBD and a nice supermarket. Its very close to the venue of my conference, the Te Papa Museum of New Zealand. Staff was very accomodating. I would definitely... More

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Cambridge Hotel on several occasions, both in 2010 and in 2014. First time at the backpackers, now in a hotel room. Things had been updated in the common areas since my last stay, with an addition of ovens in the kitchen, for example. This time, I stayed in a single room with... More

Quite a character building. Nice and comfortable place, awesome bed sizes! Very close to the CBD and amenities, reasonably priced, and pleasant atmosphere. Would definitely book again when I come back for a visit.

Really nice place to stay. I stayed in a single room with a shared bathroom. My room was clean and comfortable, I slept well, the staff were really nice. Wifi access quick and reliable as well as affordable. I would've stayed longer but they were booked out when I finally got around to organising where to stay. Bathrooms were a... More

This was our second stay at the Cambridge. We were there in December 2013 with our Daughter, Son-in-law and Grandaughter from the UK. We all enjoyed the pleasant relaxed atmosphere and the friendly staff. Very clean and comfortable. Will be back.

It might look a bit old and worn but the Cambridge is reliably comfortable and reasonably priced. Close to the action of the Wellington CBD; close to the waterfront too. A great base from which to explore Wellington.

Overall we had a great stay The Cambridge. Our first room had an uncomfortable mattress (we could feel the springs) however the next day we were moved to another room which not only had a more comfortable mattress but also a lot more light. The staff were excellent...very friendly, professional, and eager to resolve any issues. The shared bathrooms were... More

We popped down from Auckland for four 4 nights, choose Cambridge Hotel because of the reviews listed here & we weren't disappointed. Room was lovely & clean, HUGE bed. Great Location and Great Value and the staff couldn't have been better - they were so friendly & helpful. Thanks Cambridge Hotel - we'll come back.

I loved this hotel, and the location is unbeatable. The downside is its electronic swipe card system for room entry. The cards become deactivated very easily, even when not exposed to other cards or phones. My card deactivated 4 times, locking me out of my private room. Once this happened in the middle of the night, after I'd briefly left... More

We were there first time in Wellington. We spent $85 per night in a double room but shared bathroom on their second floor. Everything was good. Friendly staff, 24/7 check in, room service, wifi first 30 mins free and free charge if you use their double room if you want further use. Just go ask the staff in the counter.... More
