My husband and I needed a romantic getaway and the last time we were in Pacific Grove we saw the Centrella Inn and decided to come here next time. What a wonderful place! The hospitality of Honey and her staff (Esther, Kimmoree, etc.) set the tone for a relaxed stay with great breakfasts, wine hour, chocolate chip cookies in a...

I've been coming to the Pacific Grove area (Carmel, Monterey, etc.) for many, many years. I've stayed in every kind of place from grand hotels to places that shouldn't be open to the public. My absolute favorite place to stay is the Centrella Inn in Pacific Grove. I come here almost once a month and have done so for two...

You will make us blush with all those warm words of encouragement. The Centrella is really your home away from home and I appreciate you sharing that with the world. I consider you to be family. You have met my husband and children. Offered advice and talked me off the ledge when I became overwhelmed with life. Thank you for...

I stayed at the Centrella Inn a few years ago, and just went to show this wonderful place to a friend this past April. I stayed in one of their other "buildings" they own, so I found it to be very quiet and relaxing. I used to live where the existing courtyard is now, as my little cottage was wedged...

It is always interesting to learn from those who knew the Centrella Inn when she was a boarding house. I wish we had been able to see some pictures of what the property looked like before it was renovated. I completely agree with you about Pacific Grove being a "family friendly" community. My family has been on the peninsula since...

Stayed one weekend night at this Bed and Breakfast. Lovely building, great staff, beautiful grounds. We reserved a premier room and I am not sure if the inn was completely sold out or not (there were plenty of people at breakfast so it was definitely not empty), but our room was just so tiny. It had a couple of windows...

Thank you for your kind words. Our gardener works very hard to make the grounds lush and beautiful. The cottages, in our garden, are definitely more spacious and they have a fireplace which I absolutely love. We hope you will be our guest again.

My wife and I stayed 1 night at Centrella. The Centrella is a historic hotel with victorian style rooms. The location is closed to the ocean. The reception is friendly and helpful. The breakfast and cookie is tasty. They also provided the free WiFi. I think the walls & windows do not have soundproof. It is kind of noise from...

The Centrella Inn is a Historical National Landmark built in 1889and we are making sure that we keep with the proper era when updating our rooms (although our new beds aren't antique). Thanks to Holbrooks Antique auction for all the little finds we have been making. We would love to have you come and see some of our new touches.

The Centrella has all the ambiance of home. The comfortable furniture/beds, the warm atmosphere and friendly staff all add up to enjoyment. My wife and I spent 3 nights here and enjoyed it. They provide an awesome breakfast and afternoon wine. The room I had booked originally was a bit small for our liking but we were upgraded, for a...

This was the second time that I spent a week at the Centrella Inn. It's a charming nice Inn, with great breakfast, nice and clean rooms. I had no tv in the room but I really didn't mind that. In fact it's nice to not always get distracted by it. Oh, and the location is great too. Especially if you...

You have discovered the true magic of Pacific Grove...The run along water. The sea otters playing in the surf, the seagulls floating about, the deer wandering the golf course. All provide a beautiful background. Can't wait to have you as our guest again.

We came across this b&b after driving from San Francisco and had not booked so was pleased to find rooms available. The lady on reception was really helpful and let me have a key to view the room prior to deciding to check in. The room was not very large but nicely decorated in the victorian theme in keeping with...

We are very happy you found us. The Centrella Inn has a way of drawing people to her. The owners were raised in London they bring a bit of British flavor to the peninsula. I know we are oceans away, but if you are ever in this area again we would love to have you as our guest.

I stayed at the B&B with my spouse and son for the third time We rented a cottage. The B&B was OK, but not as good as before. Something has changed, it might be a staff or ownership change.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. When the current owners took over, 10 years ago, they wanted to remove the hotel feel and create a home away from home feel. That is why we added a fresh cooked to order breakfast, just like you would get at grandma's house. We do offer the continental items buffet...
