The staff are all excellent - friendly, caring, and responsive.

Room was smaller then I expected. Gorgeous exterior, inside could use fresh paint and just better up keeping. Friendly staff. Delicious scones, parfaits, cookies and wine! Hope they bring back bigger breakfasts.

Close to beach and walk/bike path and town.

Property is historic and remarkable.

Absolutely the place to stay in Pacific Grove. Beautifully restored Victorian

The hotel is very close to the coastal walking trail.

This was a very nice historic hotel in a wonderful walking-friendly area of Pacific Grove. We could (and did) walk to a variety of great restaurants within a quarter-mile walk of our hotel. The breakfast was homemade on site and the menu varied slightly each day. Fresh cookies were also available most of the day. The only downside is no refrigerator or microwave in our guest room (it is a historic hotel but wouldn't be hard to add). We'll definitely return.

Excellent staff. Wonderful grounds. Great breakfast

Great location--easy walking to sea, restaurants. Nice fireplace, too.

Enjoyed it very much. Breakfast was excellent and the location was ideal.

If I return from these 4 days of vacation with my clothes a little tighter, I'll blame it on the chef at the Centrella Inn. Well, I suppose I could have resisted the daily fresh-baked scones and full breakfasts, opting for the healthier oatmeal or yogurt and fruit, but the relaxed ambiance of this inn brought me back to a time when I imagined there were fewer rules about what was allowed to eat for breakfast. The staff was extremely gracious from the first thing in the morning till late at night, when we gathered with other guests around the fireplace with complimentary wine and interesting conversation. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast!

Very lovely inn, great location. Staff very helpful and good breakfast!

Convenient location, and a good value for the money. The hot breakfast (included) was delicious!

Nice B&B in Pacific Grove. Walking distance to Lovers Beach and Monterey Aquarium.

The location was fantastic and we would stay here again for that alone! The amenities in the room were also lovely. Had to dock a point for overall because although its a bed and breakfast, the breakfast was a bit mediocre. Small portions, basic selection, nothing special. We ended up eating elsewhere after the first morning. Also, a member of our party had allergies and the staff member taking orders could have been more accomodating, though he was maxed out on tables, so we could see why he would be disinterested in offering a solution.

We had a wonderful time here. The accommodations were great (especially the tub!), and the hospitality was simply amazing. Very highly recommended.

Beautiful room (#15). Super clean. Great shower. The breakfast and wine in the evening were appreciated touches! Easy parking.
