This was our first hotel on a two week trip through NZ and it started things off really well. We missed our first night because our flight was cancelled and the hotel kept our room but waived the fee for the missed night noting that it wasn't our fault. We had to change hotels later to be closer to the...

Fantastic location. Lovely room, good facilities and very clean. Had a shared bathroom because we booked late on a very busy Wellington weekend. Lucky to get a room. Not my preference but nothing wrong with the room and bathroom. The price was great. Staff were lovely, friendly and very helpful. Would definitely stay again.

This is a very reasonably priced place. Well known hotel. Now mainly backpackers with a few en suite rooms. Prices are good. Breakfast is $1.00 an item so can easily get a good breakfast for a few dollars. Cooked almost right in front of you. Quiet. Does not have reception 24x7 but still has reception morning to evening.

We stayed for a short night in Wellington on our way to the South Island (we would have stayed in this city for another day). The Cambridge hotel is a weird hotel. On the one hand the hotel is central, the room was huge and spacious with a small kitchenette and for a good price. On the other hand the...

Room was nice and clean - a bit hot though as no air-con so had to sleep with windows open - service was good though and we were able to store our bags for a whole day for free after check-out - would consider staying here again

Will definitely stay again! Really close to town, nice clean rooms, good price and easy to book. Stayed in Wellington for a concert and found The Cambridge to be a great place for a quiet nights sleep. Had a few drinks in "the kitchen" and walked to Westpac stadium. Awesome

Filty smelly small room and windows so thin you can hear people wispering on the street. Room was not cleaned, even when asked. Also it is potrayed as a hostle but there is no socializing here. Only old local drunk people go here. Never again.

Stayed in both a dorm and a single room, on a busy weekend. Both were tidy and well presented. Excellent facilities on site. Breakfast is available at the bar next door, good meal for a very cheap price. 24/7 check-in was also very useful.
