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

We stayed recently stayed here for one night prior to taking an early train through the tunnel back to France. Our room was comfortable, warm and well-furnished.

We stayed here for an overnight trip to Canterbury as a gift from my son . The pub is lovely and has old world charm and the menu sounds good and at a reasonable price. Canterbury town is about a mile away easily walkable but there are buses for the way back if you have lots of shopping . The... More

We stayed one night while visiting the kent coast and canterbury. This innkeepers lodge is well placed and right next door to the park and ride which made a trip into canterbury very easy. Our room was comfortable and clean, no. 6 although you did get noise from below from the kitchen door although this didnt cause us any problems.... More

This accommodation is located on the outer limits of Canterbury, making easy to get to and away from. The rooms are well equpped and realitively spacious. We also ate dinner and breakfast here and enjoyed both.

Having stayed a couple of years for several days, this visit for just two nights was a bitter disapointment from what we enjoyed before. From the outside the Inn and its surrounds look really tatty with peeling paintwork, broken fences and a general air of neglect. When it was time to book in we were soon on our way up... More

We spent five weeks travelling in England and Scotland and the Innkeeper's Lodge in Canterbury was the lowlight of our holiday. Our party of four occupied three rooms. We stayed three very uncomfortable nights. Our bed was so uncomfortable we woke each morning with aching muscles. The worst shower of our holiday. The shower curtain dragged in the shower. The...

The service in this hotel is piss poor, no attention, had to search a member staff out for breakfast, who was then not interested in serving me or providing any help whatsoever. We ate in the bar the previous evening, the food was very average for the price and arrived ten minutes apart, not ideal!
