Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a room with a king size bed and it was very comfortable. The room was clean and tidy but the kitchen oven was something from the dinosaur era (no joke) and this is not a purposely built motel its old flats that have been turned into a motel. The shower had great pressure but oddly it had a window half way down the wall so the water goes all over the window sill and you cant open it to let steam out as then everyone would be able to see you. They didn't supply any shampoo or conditioner only soap. The TV had sky but is small and there is no where to sit outside to enjoy a drink or have any privacy. We paid $170.00 for the night and I think that's terrible for the quality of this motel.

Friendly hosts and very reasonable prices but the place is dated, a bit scruffy and very tired. Bed was ok, pool was a nice bonus on a hot evening. The location is certainly central and wasn’t noisy despite being on main road but coukd hear the next units tv through wall.

We stayed at Cambrian motel lodge on 11th June. Can thoroughly recommend this motel. Our unit was spotlessly clean, new carpet/furniture/bedding. Although we didn't use the kitchen facilities, they were all immaculate. The owners were cheerfully and friendly. We will definitely stay there again.

We booked 1 night in this motel late in November. The staff were helpful and friendly and the bed was comfortable. The decor was a little tired and the skirting boards hadn't been cleaned in quite a while. That said, it was only a short walk into town, to any of the attractions.

Wouldn't recommend - very tired and in need of a major makeover. Unit we were in provided microwave and means to cook a simple meal BUT no sink except for in bathroom - absolutely not OK. No milk provided. Shower curtain mouldy, shower temperature hot then cold. Pillows thin. And not super cheap.

Ticked most of my must have boxes: comfy bed, shower with good water pressure and walking distance from cafes and restaurants. However over all the unit was a little tired, particularly the bathroom with threadbare bath mat and a facecloth that I wasn’t sure whether it’s purpose was for washing dishes or washing faces.

The Cambrian Motel is a great place to stay in Cambridge, very close to the CBD. In the last 2 weeks we have stayed there twice. We went back a second time because the units were spotlessly clean, warm with very comfortable beds, and the hosts were friendly and helpful. We certainly recommend the Cambrian Motel for your next stay in Cambridge. Thank you. Jan & Jamie
