No 1 motel is a well kept, clean and tidy no frills accommodation. There is a clean and well resourced shared kitchen, which is almost like a commercial/marae kitchen. It's large and has a lot of space for around 20 to sit and eat. It has a dishwasher and plenty of plates/cups for around 20 too. Simple breakfast cereals, bread...

Lots of amenities in our clean,spacious room, the bed/ bath linen had an expensive feel about them. A huge communal kitchen with lots of complimentary breakfast food, and the dining area overlooked the courtyard...very relaxing. Easy walking distance to all the shops and cafes. Thoroughly recommend it !

Great communal kitchen with plenty of space and we'll equipped....

Then we came to the room - comfortable bed, a towel warmer, wonderful shower and all those little goodies left for us to use. The place...

Drove down from Auckland to position ourselves to go to Hobbiton. I knew we'd be arriving after dark and I was worried Cambridge would be dark and this place sketchy. The other reviewers, however, didn't let me down tho! It's a classic older accommodation surrounded by antique shops and other retail nearby. The rooms are plain and clean and exactly...

I booked a room for a work colleague that was down in Cambridge for a meeting. The room was clean and the size was ok. Bathroom was also clean and well presented. The staff were efficient and helpful. The price was very affordable and location is very good. Do ask for a room towards the back as the front rooms...

Great if just using the place for 8 hours sleep. Very small rooms but clean and comfy. Fantastic shower pressure , no hair dryer thou. Wouldn't recommend if needing space to move around. Suited us thou as we were only using it for sleeping while attending a competition.
