Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very good value and service. Best part was the breakfast below in the restaurant. Room size ok. If you are going for a short break to Wellington we can recommend this place. The location is close to Courtney place.

The Cambridge Hotel was a wonderful place to stay, with very cheap prices and a good central location. There are lots of restaurants and shops as well as buses to the rest of Wellington on nearby Courtneay Place and there is also a supermarket at the top of Cambridge Terrace. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The pub below had...

Super friendly staff who were very helpful to a bamboozled traveller. Good location, everything (Courtney place, grocery store, Te papa, town centre) in walking distance. Clean room and bedding. What more can you ask for?

It's cheap but good value. Me and a mate booked a twin single with shared bathroom. The bathroom is actually shared with whole floor. Not exactly what we were expecting. Guess you get what you pay for.

Friendly staff, great priced pub food and a central location made the Cambridge Hotel a great place to stay in Wellington. Being just around the corner from Courtney Place means their are a myriad of restaurants close by.

I ordered dinner and ate in house. Nice spare ribs! They had Poker as entertainment so I played the event as there were about 50 players. An enjoyable game. Rooms were cheap. Overall I'd come back again :)

Good, helpful and friendly staff. All facilities are available and well maintained. There is tasty food at the hotel restaurant. There is also a bar and some gaming facilities, which I didn't get the chance to use. Would stay again.

I didn't really feel like a backpacker , it was amazing. We had a beautiful bathroom with a bath and a shower ! We had a tv and a fridge in the room. The location is absolutely okay and close to most things. The price was for that what you get absolutely perfect :-)

Every time I need somewhere to stay this is where I go, I live just outside of Wellington so I also eat and drink here quite a lot. The staff are amazing, always very helpful and super accomodating, the food is incredible and the beer is cold. Definitely my favourite place to go when I'm in the centre!
