This little motel is a flash back to US roadside motels along Historic Route 66 for us. The fixtures, service and general feeling are indicative of a small family run establishment and these places are hard to find. We'd stay here again over a chain motel with brand new everything. Hooks within reach of the shower, the sliding shower door,... More

Motel is very clean, the hosts are very amenable and the pool facility is excellent. T.v. Has 50 channels and their high speed wifi (logging on is easy with the information in the room. The only 'downer' as such is the Om could do with a makeover but if you can live with that, well worth the money. Recommended stay.

The room (No. 10) was adequate. There was no hand basin in the shower/toilet although there was enough space for one. The only water source was a hand basin (not a sink) in the kitchen area where we were expected to wash dishes as well as washing hands and cleaning teeth. The bed was the hardest we have ever tried... More

Booked in for 3 nights but had to extend our stay so the staff were really accommodating and finding us another room so we could stay on even though they were fairly full. Good location - about 5-6min walk to town and restaurants. Rooms are clean and spacious with all the basics that you need. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in Unit 1 for 1 night. This had a kitchen, bathroom and separate bedroom which we didn't use. The shower was amazing, and kitchen had a full oven. It is an older style motel and some of the walls were a bit rough but as a whole it was tidy and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and... More

Had a great stay at the Cambrian. Was well set up with beds and lovely linen, very nice people and great facilities. Had a lot of added extras such as free wifi and a wide range of television channels to watch and reasonably priced washing and drying facilities! Had an excellent stay here would definitely recommend!

Great little place with very welcoming owners. The establishment was exceptionally clean as was the bed linen. The motel was close to the main shopping centre and eateries. Would definitely recommend staying here. Parking is no problem as each unit has a car space at your door.

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
