Enjoyed a really lovely wedding here where the highlight was definitely the food. It was a cut above the usual plastic chicken - really nicely cooked and presented. The grounds are stunning; the room felt a tad dated, but was actually very comfortable and breakfast was also very good. Your guests will love you for booking your wedding here!

What a lovely hotel, wanted a nice hotel near Canterbury as we had family over from Australia, they have travelled all over the world and this is the best hotel they have ever stayed in, character, charm, service and price, it will take a lot of beating, some will have better facilities, but as a total package this is just...

Dear Phil D Thank you very much for your lovely review. It is a very good summary on what we hope to offer. We may not be modern & shiny but hope that charm & quirkiness are what our guests are looking for. Paul More

I recently went to a wedding here. The rooms were immaculate and the food was amazing with the perfect portion size. The staff on hand were discreet and quickly knew to hover near my husband with the canapés. Apart from that I never noticed them flitting around making sure everything was flowing - experts clearly! Only down side was that... More

We had at our wedding at this venue on the 27.04.2014, we found the whole experience from the booking of the venue until the end of our wedding day absolutely fantastic. The wedding co-ordinator (Hayley) was absolutely brilliant, she catered for all our needs and always kept us informed of any developments. I could not rate the service that she... More

Stayed here for a visit to Canterbury University, arrived late (2200 Hrs) and was told that though the kitchen was closed they could "knock up" something, 15 minutes later a really nice Ham salad sandwich arrived saving us a trip into the local area to forage for food. Polish Girl on reception was warm, friendly, and humorous, and everyone we... More

Just got back from celebrating my birthday and have to say that I couldn't have chosen a better place to do so. From the moment of booking through to departure I could not have received a friendlier better service anywhere else. The whole team were extremely efficient and helpful. The food was absolutely excellent starting wig the canapés last night... More

Just returned from Howfield Manor literally a couple of hours ago. Was taken there by a friend to celebrate a "special birthday". Have to say that the food from start to finish was absolutely superb, well presented, plenty of it, hot and absolutely lovely. Breakfast this morning was also excellent and, again, more than plenty of it to say the... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights in April - a Friday and Saturday - with another couple. Good points: - Dinner at the Old Well restaurant was much better than we'd expected. See separate review. - Breakfast food was also very good. - Rooms were spotlessly clean. Bed was comfortable. Furniture wasn't noticably worn. - Reception staff were... More
