We stayed here for two nights over the bank holiday weekend. Rooms are small, dark and very noisey if you want fresh air. Parking is free, along with wifi. Breakfast was by far the worst I have had. Would not stay here again.

I have stayed at the Centennial several times as it is near the station and absolutely perfect for me, although there is adequate parking, which is a major factor in Cambridge. The hotel is perfectly situated for commuting in the the city centre which is a few minutes away. I have always been happy with the rooms, the service and... More

This remains an interesting hotel, but one notices how it is gradually being improved without losing its traditional character. There is a programme of refurbishment, especially evident in the bathrooms. Some rooms are rather small, but beds are comfortable, dinners, while not haute cuisine, are generous and enjoyable. Drinks prices are very reasonable by hotel standards - and the bar... More

We travelled to Cambridge to collect a car and decided to spend a night there to break the journey. The Centennial is very traditional in style but was very comfortable and exceptionally clean. The hotel is very central with access by foot to the bars restaurants and sights of the town. We had a room facing onto the street but... More

I had no choice of my accommodation this time, and would not have chosen this myself. This is more of a guest house than a hotel in the modern sense. Furnishing-wise, everything is either dark or patterened or both (including the white dining room walls that are stained with food and drink marks - for god's sake - if you... More

The room adequate and very clean although quite small. As it was raining we decided to eat dinner in, wish we hadn't it was awful. Breakfast was fine but it is a bit of a crush in the breakfast room and it seemed as though you were rushed along so that the table could be reset! Not the best place... More

I stay at this hotel regularly, typically 4-5 times a year. It is ideally located just 5 minutes walk from Cambridge station, which also helps if you need a taxi, often difficult to get in Cambridge ! It is a traditional style hotel rather than a modern corporate hotel, which I like. The rooms are perhaps a little small but... More

I stayed here 2 nights this week in June and could not have chosen better. If what you are seeking is comfort, friendly and professional service at a good price then this is the place for you. The rooms may be a liitle traditional but my bed was super comfy and spotless as was the bathroom. Plus the hairdryer was... More

I stayed one night on 2 June for a meeting the next day. The food was excellent, but the staff need to remember that you can hear everything they say in the kitchen in the dining room. My room was small but clean. I was near the stairs which was noisy. Parking is free and the wifi is good and... More
