Having read the almost uniformly bad reviews, I thought I'd stick up for this place. For $90 a night as compared to high $400s? for anywhere else close to the action, it was a bargain. We walked in off the street during their busiest week in 3 years. For comparison we also stayed at Travelodge and Motel 98 during the... More

Went here recently for dinner. Not only did we wait for nearly 1 1/2 hours (5 of us) but the Manager was extremely rude and my meal which was fish was really dry and not at all pleasant. The restaurant wasn't full (in the fine dinning area!) though nothing about the meals that were served was fine dinning. The only... More

I was on business assisting with the disaster recovery effort at Rockhampton following Cyclone Marcia. The staff are friendly and the food in the flame char grill for breakfast and dinner was good quality at attractive prices. All rooms had comfortable double beds, tv and hot showers and were made up each day and were a welcome refuge each day... More

Place was pretty from the outside. Had read a few bad reviews about the restaurant but I didn't want dinner, I just needed somewhere safe to stay on my own for the night. This motel was not that safe place. The door to the patio (facing the road & a vacant lot) wouldn't lock and the door that linked my... More

A colleague and I had dinner at the Cambridge Hotel & it was one of the worst dining experiences. This place does not appear to have any comprehension of customer service. We ordered our meals hoping for a good Rockhampton pub meal. An hour had passed. When we asked the waitress where our meals were, we were shocked to receive... More

We went to the restaurant for a family dinner of 4 adults and 2 kids and the meals were some of the best I have ever eaten at a hotel and the prices are excellent. My kids had the $6:50 kids meal and they were huge, I had a 400gm rump chips&salads for$19:50 great price and very tender. I would... More

Went here for the buffet dinner. Omg what a disgrace! We eventually got our money back but don't bother! It's old, unclean and the food was terrible. The staff on duty were uninterested however there was a snap to attention when I called for the manager, momentarily! Honestly, go somewhere else!

The Cambridge Hotel is across the road from Rockhampton's Theatre, convenient we thought as we were taking my elderly mother for a night out at the theatre. First we walked into the Bistro Bar, we should have walked right back out and gone to the old favourite. It looked like a dingy shopping centre cafeteria, there were vacant tables but... More

Went as a party of nine for mothers day. Oh what a fiasco. I will start at the beginning, the girl taking our order was so bored by the whole situation she could not even bother to look at us while we were ordering.
