The Cambridge is a historic hotel in Wellington that has been around since the 1880's. I booked a private room as I needed some well deserved solo time and loved my little room. It came with everything: TV, fridge, wardrobe, wall heater and my own sink! There are other types of rooms as well depending on what kind of travel...

Very friendly staff. The room was clean and great value. It was mid-week and there was no noise. You just have to live with sharing a bathroom! I think it would probably be fun in the weekend. I would definitely come back.

Have stayed several times. Centrally located. Rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable. Staff are very polite and efficient. Breakfast in the bar - start with eggs and add extras as required - is very enjoyable and reasonably cheap.

Even allowing for no ensuite, $44 a night for 3 nights was excellent value, particularly when I found out that the All Blacks were in town on the Saturday night and the city was heaving with Wallaby fans. Design your own breakfast starting at $3 for scrambled eggs on toast could hardly be beaten, and the $15 rump steak was...

The room was lovely and well presented. Perfect size for just me (double bed with an ensuite bathroom). Heard no noise whatsoever all night. I was able to store luggage when I first arrived as I made it into Wellington a lot earlier than I anticipated. Had an amazing brekkie in the morning where you could build your own breakfast...

The service was great and the room was uncomfortable. The bistro breakfast was reasonably priced and sufficient. Unfortunately though I was woken up by a group of drunk men at midnight and then again at 5am.
