The exterior and grounds are tidy and within easy walking distance of Cambridge. We pre-booked 3 nights in the unit for those with disabilities. Space for manoeuvring the wheelchair was tight. The bed was comfortable.The washbasin in the shower-room is positioned too high up the wall for ease of access from the wheelchair. The standard of housekeeping let them down.... More

We stayed 2 nights in a unit towards the back. Kitchen & bathroom was clean & simple. About here it will be easier to list the negatives: * Insulation tape on the handle of slotted spoon * Lack of sugar/salt/pepper sachets & not replenished * x1 small milk for 2days stay? * Lack of hangers * Cockroach in b/room *...

We needed a place to stay for one night and we choose the Cambrian as the lawns and gardens were tidy and well-cared for. Having experienced a bad nights sleep the previous night in Hamilton we chose a unit at the end of the driveway away from the road. The unit had everything we needed including a hot high-pressure shower.... More

Good size room, comfortable bed, well appointed and very pleasant staff. No table to sit at to have breakfast and no sink in the kitchenette, But overall we had a very enjoyable stay and it was good value for money.

We stayed at Cambrian for 2 nights. We had booked online and after an initial mix up at check in (our rooms were not configured as we had requested) we were shown to our rooms. This aside, the rooms were very spacious and clean. Showers were great and even though they are on the main road, there was little road... More

but very friendly service from the owners. Unit 8 where I stayed is a small studio with a couple of office-type chairs, no table and no cooking facilities other than a microwave. There is no sink in the kitchen and you would need to use the bathroom sink for any dishes. The bathroom sink has separate taps and no mixer... More

We stayed for two nights in a unit towards the back of the complex so although we heard the road noise wasn't too bad except when trucks came by. With the express way being built by passing the motel the road noise will not be a problem to the same extent. The separate kitchen and bathroom were spacious. We felt... More

This motel was great, very neat and spotlessly clean with pretty gardens and very friendly hosts. I made an error with my booking and they were very helpful and forgiving. The motel is very attractive and close to everything, easy to find, quiet and comfortable. The bathroom was simple but spacious and private. We had one queen bed and a... More

After the disaster of the Riverside in Cambridge, we nearly went home. Thank goodness we found this lovely motel, such warm friendly people, clean and excellent family size rooms. It changed our view of Cambridge accomadation. We highly recommend, you won't go wrong staying here, it was good value.

Like most accommodation in New Zealand this is expensive by European standards. However, when comparing others in Cambridge it is well worth it. The room is well laid out but lacked real cooking facilities. We knew this when we booked so were not disappointed. We still managed scranbled eggs and bacon and toast for breakfast. The decor is starting to... More
