I can highly recommend Captain's Quarters as an accommodation option in Cambridge. I've stayed at a few places around the area and this is my favourite. The rooms are nice, clean, and have everything you need. The service is fantastic. There is a pool and all in all its a very quiet place to unwind.

We stayed here for a night in January. Huge room, comfortable beds, sparkling clean pool and washer / drier for guests which was great as we had been travelling for 10 days. The place is dated, but the bathrooms have been modernised and it's super clean. It's well situated up a long driveway off the main road and totally quiet.... More

It was 9.30pm and we had to find accommodation in Cambridge. Phoned the Captain's Quarters Motor Inn and got a very pleasant and helpful man on the phone. He was happy that we were still 40 mins away. The owners were waiting when we arrived with a smile. Our room was basic but had everything we needed, liked the large... More

Our weekend stay here was great. The unit we had was very quiet and comfortable giving us two good sleeps. We appreciated the generously sized room which gave us plenty of room for our travel bags etc so we weren't tripping over them as some times happens in smaller sized rooms. The unit provided all that we required and was... More

This place is nothing flashy but had lovely comfortable beds, HUGE spacious studio rooms, was clean and tidy and the owners were great, very friendly. Easy to find, plenty of safe parking. Will definitely stay again.

We travelled without booking before hand, and luckily found the last unit here late in the afternoon. This is a very quiet motel set back of the main highway. It is clean and tidy, well priced, and the hosts are very accommodating. But it is tired, it really needs a refresh!

So I travel a little on business and this is the third time I have stayed here. The rooms are spacious and quiet, I would love to come here in the summer to try the pool. I can imagine that when the field days are on this would be one of the first places to book out!

Stayed 2 nights in 2 bedroomed unit which was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Appreciated the free Wi-Fi and inconspicuous cleaning and replacement of towels etc. A great location with an easy walk to the shopping area during the day and good restaurants at night. The hosts couldn't have been more helpful. Would stay here again.

Spent only one night but would have been a lovely place to stay longer. We were on our way to Auckland for our return home after 3 weeks traveling through both islands. The Inn is in a great location, well maintained, and very comfortable. The room was large and welcome after a few we had stayed in that were half... More

Great motor inn, large spacious rooms and excellent facilities. Owners were super efficient and helpful. A very pleasant stay and we would gladly recommend this place to any and all. When next in Cambridge, we will stay here without doubt. Easy walk into the shopping area of Cambridge
