A Great Pub Experience in Wellington, NZ

The location was perfect - just round the corner from dozens of restaurants and the local and airport buses. The room was one of the best in a pub, including ensuite, TV, tea and coffee. The hotel had excellent meals available at prices lower than nearby cafes. Even had a washing machine and dryer at low prices. Highly recommended.

Plan First

Primarily, the desk, bar and kitchen staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the rest of the hotel went downhill from there. NO bathroom (toilet) in the room. OK for guys as there was a basin in the room, but a female guest would need to go down the corridor for toilet and shower. Not what I would do at 3am in this part of town NO air-conditioning. Yes the windows could be locked open leaving a small space at the bottom, but this hotel is on a very very busy road and even with windows closed the traffic noise was invasive. So you leave the windows closed and the room quickly became too warm. Would I come back. NOT unless I had to. I would pack ear plugs and return in Winter . The staff make this a good hotel, but by itself the old girl would not be worth it.

Clean, comfortable and cost effective

I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom. It was immaculately clean, had a tv (with sky), fridge, sink, cabinet with mirror, jug etc - much more than I was expecting, and more than what I have had at other backpackers. Location was good, I walked everywhere. Cambridge Hotel is close to Courtenay Place in one direction, and opposite direction had multiple takeaway outlets. C.H. was very well priced and I'll definitely stay there again.

Not that great a stay.

Well first of all I was given a room that hadnt been cleaned after the last occupant....not a great start but I was there for the rugby world cup final so they moved me to a clean room. Then I had a bit of a run in with a staff member who was on the front desk, he was in my mind very unprofessional and later apologised to me, However as a woman by myself I felt very intimidated by his behavior . I however loved being in the bar for the RWC final, I would never stay at this place ever again, because of both of those things happening.

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.

Cheap room, in a reasonably well

Cheap room, in a reasonably well maintained hotel. Bathrooms and toilets were always well maintained. Service to the room itself was a bit hit-n-miss. Stayed for 8 days. No air-conditioning, so the room smelt a bit like a teenagers room by the end of it. Would use it again as a cheap, very central base for Wellington
