“Weekend away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We stayed here with some friends. The rooms are to a high standard with lovely comfortable beds.
The location was great a short walk to Oxford St plenty of vintage shops and restaurants. Staff were very helpful. The only negative the carpark is narrow and you would have a problem if your car is lowered. Breakfast was great. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

Hi Gillian L,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding your ‘weekend away’ at the Cambridge Hotel Sydney. It is a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed the high standard of our rooms, the location of the hotel, and the service you received throughout your stay.
I understand the narrow car park can be challenging, it is more suitable for smaller and medium-sized vehicles.
Again, thank you for sharing your feedback, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Cambridge Hotel Sydney.

Warm Regards,
Steven Gargano

The Cambridge Hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming on arrival. The lobby had a warm, contemporary feel to it as soon as I walked in. The room where I stayed was immaculately clean and decorated in modern design. Everything was supplied in the room that I required. Breakfast was delicious with the choice of buffet or continental…it’s a great start to the day on the ground level café. Parking wasn't a problem and I left my car in the secure parking under the Cambridge Hotel for the entire weekend. Everything is in walking distance being in the heart of Sydney city. I had a fantastic weekend away all thanks to the Cambridge Hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter...otherwise be prepared to put up the the night time noise of pe...

Our room was spotlessly clean with a wonderful view, located close to central station and well know local shopping areas. The service we received was faultless and the staff were very professional and helpful. I will definitely be a return visitor!

We stayed for four nights and had a wonderful time. The room had a reasonable size, bathroom was very clean and the beds as well. The whole buildung must have been renewed recently and you could really feel it. The lobby is very nice and modern to look at, the staff super friendly. The only negative thing was the noise of trucks and cars in the morning after six. We'd come again!

Room Tip: Try to get a room higher up and away from Riley Street

My wife and I had a lovely night together and very much enjoyed our stay. The service was excellent, very friendly and professional and the rooms were spotless. I thought the bed was very comfortable, my wife thought it was a bit too hard. Traffic noise (emergency vehicle sirens)kept my wife awake while I slept right through. We were on the north side. Overall we had a pleasant night stay (first time away from the children)and would definitely recommend The Cambridge to out friends.

Room Tip: Maybe get a North side room if your a light sleeper

I apologise for any inconveniences the emergency sirens caused your wife during your stay. We are currently in the process of double glazing all the windows within the hotel, which will reduce all outside noise.
