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

The hotel was clean and I got a clean towel every day. I had a room with a sharedc bathroom and the bathroom was in a immaculate clean condition! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bus stop was just around the corner and the waterfront within walking distance!

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.

One of the better hotels while traveling New Zealand. Excellent bed, good sanitary, great value breakfast. Great location. Only the really antique elevator made some noise and we could hear it in our room

I just stayed here for a while in between flats. It has all amenities you need. Rooms aren't too bad, the mattresses are a bit old (I could feel the wooden slats underneath when I lay down). Price wise its pretty good for what you get in Wellington. The 6 person rooms can be very noisy, especially on weekends, I...

This is my second stay at the Cambridge. I loved my last room which was away from the street and away from the sun, so booked here again. Woe is me! I got a front street and sun facing hot loud cauldron of disturbance. But my constant 24/7 source of misery is the mattress. Come on Cambridge! Buy decent mattresses...
