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.

this is a wonderful, friendly, clean Hotel. The staff could not do enough for you. The Manager was a hands on person, and made us very welcome and couldn't do enough for us. Although we had booked for two nights, unfortunately we had to pull out after one night as my husband was unwell. The Manager was very sympathetic and... More

Located very near the station, the junction venue, main solicitors, botanical gardens and comprising a range of knocked together terrace houses, leaving the inside to be a bit of a rabbit warren. 15 minute level walk into town. Traditional style hotel rather than a modern box. Known this hotel over the last 9years and last stayed thee April 2015. Ask... More

I was staying here only one night for a meeting. The organisation had this as a preferred hotel as it was nearby. Overall the staff were lovely and helpfull and the food was good value for money. However the room was relatively small for the price, perhaps a bit dates, and the window didn't close properly enabling a breeze across... More

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
