When I booked I was told the room rate was $150, and I said that was higher than my previous visit last year when it was $145. She explained it was GST increase, and even though the gst was $3.62, I did not quibble at the $5 increase, but when I arrived at the motel a few days later I was charged $155. On querying the increase in a couple of days she said she should have quoted me $155, her maths calculation for gst is very inflated. I have stayed at Cambridge Mews many times over the years and it has always been excellent - clean, extremely spacious and helpful hosts, but this time the visit was marred by the extra charge and attitude. The rooms are still very clean and spacious.

The room was more like a very clean apartment, with separate bedroom, large sitting room and well-equipped kitchen. The bathroom was very luxurious and having rosebushes outside the windows just aded to the charm. Our hosts gave helpful tips on what to see and where to eat, and how to get there. We would have stayed longer, they made us feel so at home. Great place, highly recommended!

How do you choose a motel in New Zealand? There are just so many of them all touting for our business. The Mews was found by my favourite method - personal recommendation from someone local that knows it. We needed a base on arrival in New Zealand and for the second part of our 3 week stay on the North Island. The Mews is a perfect home from home, with great friendly service and very clean and comfortable accommodation. Housekeeping standards were the very best that we saw during our entire stay. But be warned - the Mews is known and during our off-season stay was full most nights. Book in advance if you are able.

This place is a gem! We were en route from Paihia to Turangi and were looking for an over night spot to relax. Earlier that day, we had made a reservation in Hamilton and while driving to Hamilton, read a review in our travel book about the Mews. We decided to switch accomodations, called The Mews and luckily they had a room. We were not disappointed. Check in was very friendly, the room was very large, had a kitchenette, was clean and conventiently located within walking distance to "downtown". Unfortunately, we didn't pick the greatest place to have dinner, and I would not recommend it, but since it was a non memorable experience, I can't recall the name of it. But would not hesitate to recommend The Mews to anyone considering staying in Cambridge.

Cambridge lies about 90 minutes south of Auckland Airport on Route 1 ( but take Route 1B to avoid Hamilton). It is a really pretty town full of character, trees and some great restaurants. We recommend the Oynx, especially for their signature filet steak menu item. They have a wide range of New Zealand wines, most by the glass.
Cambridge Mews is on the main road just to the north of the town. We stayed in the one bedroom suite which was extremely comfortable and had all possible amenities. Despite its location it was very quiet. The well appointed large bathroom had a huge two person spar and a great shower. The bed was comfortable and the lounge area with a TV was a great place to relax. There is also a kitchenette with restricted cooking facilities but with the restaurants in town who would be cooking!
The Murrays were helpful and pleasant hosts.
It is a great place to be based to explore the surrounding area (Rotorua, Bay of Plenty etc.)
Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
