Stayed in Double-bed ensuite room for 1 night in Nov 2018. Hotel is situated on a busy traffic road close to the entertainment precinct of Wellington CBD. The price per night is considerably cheaper than many hotels in the CBD, and attracts mainly young people needing a place to

Hi there Roving53765338863, First of all, I want to extend a warm thank you for taking the time to give our hotel a review on TripAdvisor I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the close proximity of our hotel to the main strip. Because of the close proximity to town, there can be a little bit of noise. Free air plugs are available at reception for any guest and we can also do our best to move guests to a quieter room upon request. Thank you for your feedback on the heaters in the rooms. We do have portable heaters that we can put into the rooms and are considering upgrading the already existing heaters. Thank you again and I do hope that if you find yourself in Wellington again, you will pay us a visit. Kind Regards, Caleb

Overall a handy hotel for a quick overnight stay. Check-in staff friendly and efficient and room clean and perfectly adequate. Good breakfast at a great price. A big negative - I arrived late and wanted to have a glass of wine in the bar, but rude and disinterested bar staff c

Hello Global01967591088, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay at the Cambridge Hotel. We’re glad to read that you enjoyed the cleanliness of your room, and found the staff to be friendly on arrival. I'm very upset to hear that you found the bar staff to be unhelpful. As you can see from many previous reviews, the team work very hard to provide excellent customer service. I would be very grateful if you could contact me directly at the hotel, so I can look into this matter further. This is not the level of service we pride ourselves on, nor wish to be known for. I can only apologise on behalf of the team that you did not experience this on this occasion. Kind Regards, Carissa Hancock General Manager

Convenient location. Helpful staff. Be prepared for backpackers who leave the kitchen a shambles and shout drunken/stoned rants in the corridors at 1am. The carpet/furnishing could do with replacing - carpet very worn, Level 1 smells constantly smokey, the stairwell has a garlick

Hello deralieflower, Thank you for taking the time to review the Cambridge Hotel on Trip Advisor. We’re glad to read that you enjoyed our great central location, and found the staff to be helpful during your recent stay with us. It’s unfortunate that the actions of some of the other guests affected your stay with us. The communal kitchen is cleaned three times daily. However, given your comments on the cleanliness, we may need to monitor this situation more closely during busier times. We are constantly working on maintaining and improving the building. We have be re-carpeting several areas of the hotel recently. All of our Backpacker Dorm rooms are almost completed, as well as stairwells and public areas. Once these areas are complete, we will be moving to the Hotel Rooms on levels one and two. Thank you again for giving us your feedback which will allow us to improve our customer service for future guests. We hope if you return to Wellington you’ll choose to stay again with Cambridge Hotel so that we can improve on your previous stay. Kind Regards, Carissa Hancock General Manager

Hi there! Have you got any female dorms?
Hi Giovanna, No we do not have any female dorms. However we do have 4 bed dorms which given the right circumstances we can make sure that it is only females that go in but there are no guarantees. Kind Regards, Finnbarr Kerr-Newell General Manager TGH Cambridge Hotel and Bar

Hi. I am looking for a place to park my car Saturday night and Sunday when we are staying at the Cambridge. I know you doing have any parking facilities but could you advise on this please. Thanks a lot Eileen
Street parking is free for two hours in the weekend. The best option to park your car for free would be the coupon parking area, it is free in the weekend. It is easier to show you on the map when you get here. If you are looking at a more secure car park i would suggest the Wilson parking building in Tory street which is just 5 minutes from us. it is $3 for the entire day on saturday and sunday. Thank you and hope this helps. Charmaine

I wonder if there is any airport transfer that you can arrange for me as well? Thank you.
A less expensive alternative to a taxi is the Airport Flyer Bus service which departs from the lower level outside of the baggage claim area of Wellington airport. Take the bus to the Courtenay Place stop and walk a short distance from the bus stop around the corner into Cambridge Terrace and 100 meters to the hotel.

Hello, I hope you are well. Is it there shuttle service or something similar to go from and to Wellington airport? If yes, what is the price? I would be really grateful if you could let me know. Kind regards, Priscilla
Hi Priscilla, Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately we don't have our own shuttle service. However, there are shuttles that wait outside arrivals at the airport that you could catch, they cost approx $15per person. Alternatively, there is a bus service called Airport Flyer, which leaves from outside arrivals and stops one block from the hotel, this costs $9.50per person. Hope this helps! Regards, Jess

"Ask for ensuite room facing away from Cambridge Terrace while booking to avoid the worst of the traffic noise."
"Clean & neat, had everything we needed."
"Ask for quiet room, not facing the street"
"Nice,clean, tidy,t.v"
