Always good staff team and rooms excellent , had an up grade which was great but room had no desk/table to work at which was disappointing . Great location for city and public transport access. Love the beds , very comfortable. FAn in bathroom needed a clean but otherwise ok. Buffet breakfast was a bit weak and not much choice for vegetarians.

This was my 2nd stay and this was even better than the first. The room rate was very reasonable. The room was large and well appointed with a very comfortable bed. Only problem was that we couldn't get wifi in our room although the staff said they tried to help solve the problem. Free wifi is advertised and I know other people had issues with it. Wasn't really too much of a problem for us but if we were on business it may have been. Otherwise a very good stay. Also there was no traffic noise and we were only on the 3rd floor.

Spacious room, excellent view from King Balcony although some chairs outside would have been useful, friendly service, smallish lift, decent room service, excellent bed (possibly the outstanding feature). Recommended.

Be prepared to pay for parking as it is not complimentary. Apart from that good location, just around the corner on Crown street is an awesome little mexican joint call mad mex - I was very happy with that. Overall I had a good nights stay thanks guys...

Hi Melissa,

Thank you for sharing your feedback on your stay with us at the Cambridge Hotel. I apologise for any confusion with our car-parking, as we has never advertised this facility as complementary. While there is some costing, we do offer very competitive rates in a market such as Sydney. Surry Hills has fantastic restaurants and cafes just around the corner from our hotel, and I’m glad the rest of your experience was excellent. Again, thank you for your comments; the Cambridge Hotel looks forward to welcoming you back.

Kind regards,

A friend and I stayed at this hotel for one night and can't rate it highly enough. We had an easy walk from Central Station and really liked the neighbourhood. Lots of cafes, restaurants and pubs nearby, with that quirky Surrey Hills flavour.
The hotel itself is clean and modern. We had dinner at the Italian restaurant next door and enjoyed a beautiful meal (that afternoon we peeked inside and could see them making the pasta for the evening service - we were sold!). I can still taste the gnocchi and the Valpolicella we had. Absolutely delicious.
It's also the restaurant that provided our complimentary breakfast in the morning, included in our room price - the nicest croissants I have had in a long time. We would certainly stay at the Cambridge again. The value and quality was faultless.

The room was large, clean and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable.

The reception day staff were excellent, the evening guy however left a little to be desired.

It is a good location just outside the centre but an easy walk for most and the area is quite and safe.

This was our second visit, and we would and have recommended it to friends.

The Cambridge is set in a great location, it's easy to walk to all the famous landmarks, do some shopping in the city or check out King's Cross. Surry Hills is a safe, easy to navigate area with loads of great restaurants, pubs, bars and cafes.

The rooms are big with plenty of space and are very comfortable. The beds are also huge with very comfortable pillows and warm bedding. The bathroom is lovely and clean and the shower has great water pressure.

Hotel staff are very friendly and so helpful. Free wi-fi was a bonus and worked really well. Another plus was the airport shuttle, which cost only $14 per person and got us there on time with no problems.

Overall, I think The Cambridge is a fantastic spot for families, couples or even people on a solo trip for work or fun. Surry Hills is the perfect spot to base yourself in Sydney and The Cambridge is a great hotel to choose!
