The room was a lot more basic than the impression given on the website. Would have rather spent a little more for decent facilties. Great location though. Close to Courtney Place, so street noise is noticeable.

only cost 79 dollars for two people. its worth for a hotel room. I didn't expect bed was that big and soft. If next time go Wellington, I will definitely stay here again. when we arrived already 4 o clock. it took little bit trouble to get there, so when we saw the hotel. feel like back home~I like that...

The Cambridge Hotel is a centrally situated, reasonably priced Wellington hotel which also functions as a Backpackers, so kitchen & laundry facilities are available. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is very tastefully renovated in period style.

Arrived with the intention of staying in a hostel room, but due to some difficulties with the room, Josie, one of the reception staff was more than helpful! Best customer service I've ever seen. She moved us to a great room and sorted everything out very quickly. 5 star for customer service. Josie in particular. Will stay again.

We stayed in the hotel part, and it was great value. The staff were friendly and the room was clean with a good little bathroom. It was walking distance to everything. The icing on the cake was the $3 eggs on toast - bargain!

Unique with a nice home feel the cambridge is definitley the best place to stay in Wellington. It differs from other hotels/hostels due to its more of a personal interaction with the staff and other guests. Awesome location in the city centre, a few mins to the supermarket cinemas and just round the corner from courtney place, can catch bus... More

The Cambridge Hotel/ Hostel is in central Wellington, so that you can walk to most attractions, sights and shops. There's a big bus station very close where from buses go to every part of Wellington. The people who work in the hotel are nice, especially when you stay longer and they get to know you. The atmosphere is homely and... More

We chose the Cambridge primarily because of the price. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the hostel/hotel had modern bathroom facilities, kitchen and nice bedrooms with comfortable beds. The hostel is within walking distance of the high street, restaurants, cafés and bars. Attractions such as the harbour and the Te Papa museum are also close by. The only downsides... More
