The Cambridge Hotel is a newly restored heritage building. It is immensely popular for its value accommodation and the central location in the heart of the city. The fantastic central location and carefully restored decor, combined with hard to match prices, has made The Cambridge Hotel the first choice for many travellers and returning guests. From traditional rooms upstairs, to state of the art backpacker facilities. Come, join them in the bar for a free kiwi BBQ every Wednesday, or the fab menus with breaky starting at $3 for eggs on toast!
Saturday Nights from 9pm to 3am Sunday Morning the downstairs Cambridge Hotel Bar and Cambridge Terrace are both very busy and noisy.
There is LOUDER than normal noise from the bar and from the street. We apologise in advance for this, and do not recommend the rooms if you are a light sleeper, or require a good night sleep.
Please note that an additional 1.5% of the total payment is applied charged if payment is made with a credit card.

beautiful old building, quiet enough although the rooms are right above a bar. Common shower and toilet was so so but overall very nice for the pricing.

Review of The Cambridge Hotel
Would not recommend
Feb 17, 2014
no internet, odd room setup
Nice tv. Effectively no internet. Iit was extremely slow and had difficulty connecting.3 different devices that I use regularly including an ipad 3 ciuld not connect but u was told by the receptionist that there was nothing wrong with their wifi.
The password expired every two hours and each had to be printed at the reception desk. The sink in the bathroom was about 8 inches wide. Lucky for me it was not cold because the only heater was an 18" long space heater mounted on the wall. Weird. One morning I came down to have breakfast but was told it was closed because the cook did nit show up. Apparently he was out late drinking which is what the do a lot of at the cambridge.
Not a family friendly hotel but maybe Good option for backpackers.
