I was in Cambridge for a week for work at Addenbrookes so this hotel was reasonably priced and about 20minute walk to the hospital. Also suitable to walk to town centre. The rooms are small and breakfast average. But suitable for a short business stay. The team were very friendly. Ask for a newer room if you are there for... More

Stayed for a two night midweek break. The staff (especially the Italian young lady on reception) were very friendly and helpful. We had a quiet room at the rear of the hotel, which is ideally placed for the station and viewing the sites as long as you don't mind a bit of a walk. One big plus point is the... More

We stayed at the Centennial for one night and found it to be very good value for money. The staff are friendly, willing to help, interested in you and overall professional at what they do. The room, whilst small was perfectly adequate for a short stay and was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was a good size and well cooked,... More

Cambridge is not well known for quality hotel accommodation at a fair price. This hotel has had a bit of a makeover since I last stayed. It has lovely staff in the downstairs restaurant and very helpful owners. The building though is a bit of a rabbit warren. I was in a third floor room and had to climb 30... More

This hotel is well placed both for the railway station and walking to city centre. The staff are very friendly and helpful, however I would concur with other reviews that it is wise to ask for a room away from the main road. It did not help that Cambridge drew with Man United one night I was there. The night... More

Generally a lovely stay, although it was a wee bit hot in the room. You couldn't swing a cat in there, but who cares? It's a well-priced hotel in the centre of town. The key selling point is that the service is wonderful - there is real warmth in everything any of the staff do - and that was tested... More

We ate both dinner and breakfast in the charming little restaurant downstairs. Exceptionally good service and value £16.50 dinner for 3 courses . Good choice of food and... More

Requested a quiet room. Got a room not facing the street in the newer built part of the hotel so we were given the best to get. Walls were okey, the windows could be better but the truly weak point was the wooden door that let in every possible sound possible outside the room and even from other rooms. We... More

I stayed for one evening and would not do so again. The room I was allocated was at the top of the hotel. There was no shower and the hose from the water taps had to be held by hand, most unsatisfactory. The towel provided was the equivalent to a hand towel. The lighting was poor in the room. The...

Clean and neat, room and bathroom very small, especially for the price (£150/night). Could be just high Cambridge prices in general though... Nothing was particularly impressive nor disappointing, all in all very average.
