My daughter recently held a surprise get together for friends & family for my 60th birthday here, and what a wonderful evening! Everybody remarked on how lovely everything was and we were certainly well looked after. The food, the staff and the rooms were all perfect, and I loved the wonderful old building. In the morning breakfast was served in... More

We stayed 3 days over Valentines Day February 2015. It is a friendly hotel comprising the old 12th Century building (where the plumbing requires improvement) and a new wing. Rooms well equipped and comfortable. Situated 2 miles out of Canterbury and convenient for the Park and Rise at Wincheap. We eat one meal in the Restaurant and it was good.

I could go on about this hotel but I won’t what I will do is summarise the best I can and be as fair as I can. The hotel is situated on the A28 about 10 – 15 minutes’ drive from Canterbury. The oldest part of the building dates back to the 12th century as such some areas of the... More

Dear Guest I have had now had chance to look at both of your reviews and in particular the one above and evaluate my response. The building, originally, the dairy for Canterbury Cathedral, does in fact back date back to 12th Century. However, the low beams in the restaurant only date back to 16th Century when the original chapel under... More

We arrived on Friday 6 February 2015 and was treated amazingly from that moment until we left on Sunday 8 February. We booked into their restaurant on Friday and had an truly fabulous meal. Shame we didn't book again for Saturday night as the meal we had out was nothing compared to Friday's, Charlotte went the extra mile to make... More

Only stayed one night, in December 2014. Excellent hotel from start to finish. The intention was to go to Canterbury for the afternoon, but weather was not good, so stay in hotel, relaxed for the afternoon and then pre dinner drinks. Dinner was excellent as was the cooked breakfast. Definitely stay there again, and hopefully visit Canterbury.

I recently organised a birthday celebration for an important day at Howfield. From the very first phone call to reserve to the finalisation of the bill, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Part of the plan was to fly a helicopter in. This did not phase them at all as they have a helipad. We had a private room which... More

I was very, very pleasantly surprised at the quality, atmosphere, exceptional service and value at the Howfield Manor Hotel. They weed incredibly accommodating and helpful, had a very tasty breakfast (and I, for one, don't usually like English breakfasts!), printed a bunch of... More

Hotel has lovely surroundings and room was nice though probably could do with a touch up here and there. Staff were very friendly and attentive but not to the extent you feel uncomfortable. Everything you could need is provided and some things you may not, but you will appreciate all the same. Breakfast menu was vast and very nicely cooked.... More
