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

Greeted by very friendly staff and had room on ground floor which was excellent. The hotel was ideally located for my short, one night stop. The room was very clean and tidy and the wi-fi was excellent and free. I had an evening meal in a nearby restaurant (there are plenty to choose from!) and the breakfast in the hotel... More

I stayed at the Centennial for two nights this month. Ideal location - 3 mins from the train station - 10mins from the heart of the city centre and amenities all around. Room was extremely clean and comfortable. Staff couldn't help me enough! This hotel has real character and I will definitely book again on my next visit to Cambridge.

I booked a deluxe double single occupancy. Room was size of a small double with a small standard double bed. Very basic. Apparently they consider it deluxe because it is at back of hotel and quiet! Evening meal was average but fair value. Breakfast was quite nice and generous. I liked the comfortable lounge.Not good value really.
