We stayed here for one night on our way back to London. It's in a great spot - close to the railway and minutes to city centre. Ok - so it's old and somewhat old fashion but it's clean and pleasant and quaint. It's more of a guest house than a hotel. The breakfast was simple but everything is cooked... More

An older style, almost 'guesthouse/B&B' type of hotel. Well located, parking, Wifi, good sitting room and a good breakfast which is included. Dated style but perfectly OK if you don't mind that atmosphere. Avoid the budget room if you can. No shower, just a handheld in a bath with no curtain or screen. Under the eves so would feel a...

A very pleasant place to stay. Compact and comfortable. It has the added advantage of free parking, free internet and breakfast included. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel for business or solo travellers.

We had a very bad experience in another guesthouse in Cambridge were we literally ran away for miscallaneous reasons, safety being the most pronounced. Having no place to stay (2 adults and 2 children) we tried our luck at Centennial. The person at the reception (Simon) was very helpfull. He had two rooms available, gave us advice how to handle...

The Centennial has two things in its favour: it is a five minute walk from the free shuttle bus pickup to go to the annual Flying Legends air show at Duxford. (It is the same walk to the Cambridge railway station.) And the front-of-house and dining room staff (all from Europe, as in every hotel in England) are helpful and... More

My father and I have stayed in this hotel for the same weekend in July for numerous years now and it never fails to disappoint. The staff are excellent, attentive and friendly and the rooms are always well presented and clean. A good English breakfast will set you up for the day and a restaurant and bar are available, although... More

This hotel is central with onsite free parking. The shower worked fine. The rooms are very dated but clean. Breakfast service was swift and there was a reasonable selection of different types of cooked breakfasts. There are no frills here. I cannot say it was particularly comfortable as our room was facing on the main road and it was very... More

This lovely hotel is right in the town and barely five minutes walk from the station. The staff are lovely and make you feel so welcome. The rooms are spotlessly clean, comfortable, the bedding is of excellent quality. A lovely bathroom, also spotless and very hot water. Some nice little touches, too, for example tea and coffee, a kettle, of... More

I have stayed in the Centennial Hotel a few times now when travelling on business. My most recent trip was a weekday night, with a one night stay. The hotel is ideally located for my office (next door) so the location is a real win for me! It takes less than 2 minutes to walk to the office in the... More
