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

The hotel is situated within very easy walking distance of town and is on bus routes and provides free parking at the rear. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean and although our room faced the street we didn't notice traffic noise and slept well. My only problem with the hotel was the lack of lifts... More

This is an older style hotel situated about 20 minutes walk from the centre of Cambridge. The hotel and room were both clean and well maintained. Free parking is available on site which is a bonus given the charges in Cambridge. We were warmly welcomed and our room met our needs. We found the staff polite and efficient and eager... More

We took a chance on the hotel as the ones in the centre have now become ridiculously priced and it had FREE parking! (Unlike some others!) The location is good for the centre a 20 minute walk away. Although a little dated it was clean and our room comfortable (AA 3*). The Full English breakfast was good value and filling.... More
