3rd time we have stayed here. Clean, tidy and within walking distance of many Wellington highlights which makes this property a great place to stay. Note: it is noisy on the weekends but we come prepared with earplugs.

Great Hotel with friendly staff and value for money! Definitely would stay again! I enjoyed the central location and the advise staff give about different places in Wellington to visit. The downstairs bar can get very busy and fun with lots of drinks deals during the rugby game!

Just around the corner from Courtney place, this hotel is a buzzing hive of activity. Their bar down below does get pretty rowdy on a Saturday night, which travels through, but the staff will keep you updated on this and offer earplugs.

Budget hotel but really comfortable and well located. If you like to go out and have fun and just want a place to lay your head, it's perfect. And you can have a drink in the bar and catch up on the sports results first.

I took my two teenage sons for a few days in Wellington and stayed at the Cambridge. The hotel service was excellent, rooms were clean with sufficient amenities for our stay. The boys did enjoy the breakfast and at a good price too. we shall certainly be staying here again on our next trip to the capital

We often enjoy the old style pub accommodation with a bar and meals, and The Cambridge Hotel in Wellington didn't disappoint. The room included a bathroom, large bed, TV, and tea making facilities. The food was fantastic and inexpensive ($16 for a large breakfast for two). The position is ideal, just around the corner from the main street, and bus... More
