we had previously stayed here for a weekend a couple of years ago for a family wedding and found it to be clean, friendly and excellent base for all local amenities. Looking for somewhere to stay for our 10th wedding anniversary we decided to head back here and spend some time sightseeing in the city. We were not disappointed. Spend... More

Stayed for 1 night (Sunday) at the Old Gate Inn. Could do with a bit of a spruce up outside - but then you don't stay outside do you! Inside, lovely welcoming bar with a good selection of beers and plenty of tables. Really nice menu and the food was good quality, presented nicely and delicious. We paid the extra... More

Stayed here for weekend and had hoped for a bit more than a premier inn/ travel lodge experience. Room was clean but drawer front fell off onto my partners foot when we put clothes away. The shower tray filled up every time we had a shower and the side lamp bulb didn't work. Being 8 months pregnant the lack of... More

Have stayed at the Old Gate a number of times now and it is still a lovely place to stay. The rooms and bed linen etc are spotlessly clean and staff as friendly as ever. Our Bathroom (Room 6) didn't have a bath just a shower but it was quite large with modern fittings that worked very well. It is... More

We arrived not really knowing what to expect, mixed reviews had been made. We had been given the stay as a present using Virgin experience days, I cannot fault the place, the service was excellent from beginning to end, always with a smile and prompt. The room (No 6) was very comfortable, clean and well furnished. We ate in the... More

four of us stayed here in 2 rooms and had a brilliant time. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the actual bar/restaurant itself was fab too. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back!!

We stayed here for one night to experience Christmas Canterbury and to shop. We ate lunch in the bar, good quality and value but rather slow service, before walking round the corner to catch the Park and Ride bus. The hotel is on the perfect position if you want to ditch the car. We arrived back at the room quite... More
