Good points, the lady on reception was lovely, really welcoming, very clean, location pretty good and car parking. Bad points. I always prefer to support independent hotels, but this was a disappointment, it lacked joy, it was like being transported back to 1983 complete

Good points Good location for OCR. Clean room. Friendly welcome on reception. Bad points The road is very noisy and I had a poor night's sleep. Breakfast had a stiff atmosphere. Different receptionist on check out was a stark contrast in personality compared to the

for those who work for Cambridge Assessment, this hotel is a short walk from the rail station and the Triangle Buildings. The rooms are clean and comfortable though the ones on Hills Road can suffer from traffic noise. The restaurant has an interesting and enjoyable menu.

We stayed in a “deluxe” room and I am struggling to find anything deluxe about it. I can only guess how bad the standard rooms must be. In need of a total refurbished from top to bottom. The hotel is a long walk into town, the rooms are very small and very old fashioned. There

Thank you for your review! We take every review constructively in order to improve our services! The Centennial is situated within 6 traditional Cambridge townhouses, these are historic buildings which have in the past been owned and used by Cambridge University - This makes it very difficult to receive approval by the council to change the buildings and refurb the entire hotel, although we are still trying! Regarding the walk into town, it is a leisurely 10-15 minute walk into the heart of the City Centre. Car park in Cambridge City is at a premium! Car parks in the City centre can cost up to £8 per hour in certain areas. We only have 25 car parking spaces but we offer these absolutely free to all of our guests - The only downside is, it is first come first serve. We have found this is the best and most efficient way to operate. Our deluxe rooms are slightly more spacious than our standard rooms and they face the back of the hotel - Our rates for Deluxe rooms are only slightly dearer than the standard rooms to reflect the fact that there is not a substantial difference between the rooms. We hope you will visit us again in the future!
