This inn offers good value for money. If your after luxury and modern accommodation centrella is not for you. However if you want quaint, clean accommodation in a handy location this inn will suit. Our room was the lowest category but still a good size and had a remodeled bathroom. The carpet was in need of replacement but still felt... More

The inn is a listed building, and is very historic. We (family of 4) arrived after the local visitors center recommended the inn with no reservation. No problem to the friendly and helpful staff - we were checked in and getting comfy in our room in no time. We had room 3, which had a separate bedroom and a sleeper... More

My boyfriend and I stayed overnight here as part of a group of friends. The staff is so friendly, you feel like you are staying in someone's home. We had room 22 at the top of the stairs and the room was beautiful and sunny and very quiet. The best thing, though, was waking up in the morning and smelling... More

This place is awesome. Ok it's not hip or swanky, old and it has it quirks for sure, but I love it. Rooms are small but comfortable, some could use redecorating (Laura Ashley threw up all over #22). The staff is the best, genuinely helpful and friendly. The location is awesome, one block up your on the main drag (shops... More

My spouse and I stayed at The Centrella Inn back at the end of June/July for 3 nights. It is a beautiful old building with lots of charm that was previously a mission. We received a very warm friendly greeting when checking in. Everyone was so pleasant to speak to, Shannon, Honey, Kim Marie, and the owner. Everyone was very... More

I grew up in PG not far from the Centrella Inn. My wife and I feel the need to come back to PG a few times each year. Once we stayed here we've been back 3 times. It not just the location but the feel and comfort of the inn, like home. The staff is very friendly and helpful with... More

This is a pleasant place to stay, very near to both Highway 1 and the 17 mile drive. It is also just a few yards from the sea with a number of restaurants nearby. The staff were friendly, the food was good with a welcome drink and savoury nibbles. Coffee and tea were also available 24/7. The only downside for... More

Booked via the visitor centre on the day of arrival and we were pleasantly surprised by how nice the Inn was. It is a historic hotel and has been kept in this manner although does have modern conveniences, such as Wi-Fi. We enjoyed the wine and nibbles offered in the early evening, and the breakfast was good. Room was on... More

In keeping with most of the area, it's a lovely old house, with old style bathroom fittings and big old beds. They bake their own delicious scones each morning (together with the other breakfast which is also great) and serve a glass or two of wine each evening. There's a fabulous garden with a bird who comes to collect his... More

This was our second time staying and again it was very nice. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the street. Very quite as it was away from the checking counter. Even though the house is old we were not ever disturbed by anyone walking by either from inside or the street. Great bed very comfortable. They had a... More

Honey G, Manager at Centrella Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for your kind words. We are working on doing all the small bathroom repairs this year. We have been going in and replacing all the fans, floors and next will be showers. Hopefully by the time you come back and see us all those little repairs will be taken care of. We can't wait to show you our... More
