About The Cambridge Hotel

Saturday Nights from 9pm to 3am Sunday Morning the downstairs Cambridge Hotel Bar and Cambridge Terrace are both very busy and noisy.
There is LOUDER than normal noise from the bar and from the street. We apologise in advance for this, and do not recommend the rooms if you are a light sleeper, or require a good night sleep.

Please note that an additional 1.5% of the total payment is applied charged if payment is made with a credit card. $5 key deposit is required
