The Cambridge Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly after we had a long day of traveling. We were told about their BBQ special which was a huge plus and the room was clean and cozy. Breakfast was also great for the money. Will be back!

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.
