We stayed two nights here while visiting friends and attractions. Great location. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable although the bed was a bit on the lumpy for us. Perhaps they need to follow the Premier Inn lead and upgrade the sleep experience. Continental breakfast offering was adequate but seems to have reduced since our stays... More

Having stayed here a number of times we knew what to expect. A friendly welcome, excellent room and bathroom plus 2 good nights sleep. Would highly recommend for a stop over on the way to the ferries or eurotunnel or to use as a base to visit Canterbury & Kent's many attractions.

We stayed at the Old Gate Inn / Innkeepers Lodge for a weekend stay whilst visiting family. The Inn is easy to find, not far from the A2, and even though we arrived quite late on a Friday evening (just after 10pm, but check-in is to 11pm) they were just as welcoming as if we arrived at any time. We... More

We stayed for 2 nights, and the price was ok for what it is. The room was comfortable enough, but looked like it could do with a bit of a care. The paint on the windows was coming off, so just a few little things would improve the standard. There is a free breakfast, but don't get too excited. It... More

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.
