3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed one night. Arrived quite late but was no problem. Room was a little small but the shower was great. Breakfast was ok but bacon too underdone for my taste, would give it a miss another time. We walked into Cambridge the next day and the hotel was happy for us to leave our car.

I was in Cambridge for two days and stayed (second time) in this hotel. This time I get a room no. 201, and it is really a small one (I couldn't find a dimension, but assume 2.5mx3m). Room is also located on a frequent path (near reception desk, cross to backyard door and stairs to the dining room). If you... More

This was a last minute find born out of desperation as the place we had previously booked for 5 nights was a disaster no go area. We got this through a City of Cambridge iPhone app in the later evening with only one room available. The Centennial is a late Victorian - Edwardian group of buildings in an old part... More

We were in Cambridge for one night, and wanted someplace close to the train station since we had to catch a morning train to London; this suited our needs well. The staff was friendly. We arrived early and wanted to drop our bags since we had to return the rental car. The desk clerk said that everyone was dropping bags... More

The Centennial Hotel is one of the myriad British hotels which were created from Edwardian, and later, properties. This particular hotel is actually two buildings united. There are three floors, with no lift and a narrow, winding staircase. Parking available. The city centre, one mile and one half, is twenty minutes' walk away; Grafton shopping precinct about ten. City buses... More

Cambridge accommodation is expensive, so the price is not unusual. Fairly small spaces. Our room was newly decorated and with new bathroom. Fronts onto road so can be noisy (e.g. sirens). Service v helpful and friendly, from waiters to reception. Convenient location for walking into town (15 mins to centre) and for parking car (in rear car park)

I stayed here with my 21 year old daughter. The hotel is conveniently located a five minute walk from the railway station and around 15 mins from the town centre. All the staff that we encountered during our three night stay were very helpful and nice. The standard of cleanliness was excellent as was the food. Breakfast was plentiful with... More

This is not a hotel, it is more of a guest house. Awful hotel, old fashioned. Rooms are very cramped and dark, no walking room. No air conditioning, one small, noisy fan - which was ineffective. Bathroom was old fashioned and bathroom fan was filthy. Manager at hotel was rude on the phone when I called before my stay. No... More

No complaints, the staff were really welcoming and didn't bombard you with attention or hassle. Lovely bathroom with modern showers. Perfect for a cosy comfortable stay. A little bit of a walk from the busy streets of Cambridge if thats an issue for anyone. But its a nice walk. Can be a bit noisy if your bedroom is on the... More
