This is my second stay here on business. I find the hotel very convenient, being so close to the station, and very comfortable and accommodating. At first I was given a very nice room with a double bed and beautifully fitted bathroom. However, the noise from the road prevented me from sleeping so I asked if there was a room...

I was placed here in accommodation provided by work. As a lone female, the owner recognised me from a previous visit, upgraded my room because I was staying longer , then provided brighter lighting when I explained about my eyesight. All with good grace. The rooms are homely, with crisp cotton bedsheets and well- furnished bathrooms; all services are provided...

Stayed one (Saturday) night as visiting the Book Festival. Warm welcome, hotel spotlessly clean throughout, furniture a little dark and dated but my budget attic room was fine for my needs with important things like plug sockets in sensible places. Bath but no proper shower. Excellent breakfast and plenty off staff. Bit of a walk (20 mins) to town centre...

Needed a room for a Saturday night in Cambridge. The Centennial is nothing spectacular, but it is comfortable and close to the train station. The staff is friendly and the rates are good. While it is a bit of a walk to the city center you are across the street from a great pub, The Flying Pig!

This hotel is in a perfect position for the centre of the town with good car parking facilities, as long as you are prepared to walk. The beautiful Botanical Gardens are, however, within a five minutes walk and well worth a visit. The room was spotless and the bed comfortable. The whole hotel had a tired and dated feel but...

We had a 1 night stay in Cambridge recently & the Centennial Hotel was a perfect place to stay. It is kept very clean & tidy & the rooms, although a little small, are spotless. It is rather an old fashioned family hotel but the staff are great and the cooked breakfast was beautiful. We did not eat in, in...

Very comfortable hotel, food was absolutely delicious, bus stop opposite hotel for easy access to city centre. If you have trouble with stairs would recommend ground floor room. There is also a car park at the rear of hotel.

In simple words food was dreadful and service was.worse. It felt like we were in a morgue. Our evening was spoilt as we had to go and eat else where. as we could not eat the food There was no customer service at all. You are sppose to just walk in find a table and wait REALLY

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. Where other hotel's prices go up and down this one seems constant. Great when the chain's raise theirs but you need to understand what you are buying. On the plus side this is 20 to 30 minutes walk into town and buses stop right outside. There is car parking which is a real...
