My 5yr old daughter and I spent a night here whilst catching up with friends, we had a room on the ground floor over looking the main road, but it wasn't noisy and was great relaxing and watching buses come and go and the people walking past. It is just a short walk to the top of the high street... More

This is a great hotel for a stay in Canterbury, the hotel is situated by the West Gate so to do the town, shops and Cathedral. The parking is easy with plenty of space. The rooms are comfortable. The breakfast was excellent with a buffet style layout, alsoI lots of fresh fruit and a wide choice of cereals. I would... More

I booked this hotel previously so re booked again for my birthday. On arrival I was informed there was a booking made for the previous night and I would be charged as a no show. I explained I had booked via Expedia and I had my itineraries to prove I had made no such booking. They said they had problems... More

Dear jane2311, I am sorry to hear your disappointment about what happened. I can only re-iterate that we did receive two separate reservations for you from Expedia and as discussed your itinerary details could only be addressed with that particular website. As mentioned any returning guest(s) booking directly with the hotel would not only receive a 10% return discount but... More

When we arrived In Canterbury I popped in to check what time check in is & as our room was ready early the receptionist who was very friendly with a lovely smile let us check in early and park the car. I loved the building itself and added to the whole historic experience of visiting an ancient City like Canterbury.... More

I came to the Falstaff hotel on a two night business stay. I was shown to room 1 which was a small room with a very ceiling on top of the hotel, facing the street. The carpet was frayed, the bathroom window very mouldy, the pictures were falling out of their frame, the door was chaffed, the light-switch dirty. I... More

I thoroughly recommend the Falstaff Good: Location, right in the centre & near the station. Loads of restaurants & pubs within 5 min walk; Staff lovely, helpful and keen; Breakfast very good; Really good bed; Free parking. Could do better: Bathroom tired and/or could do with a deep clean with some mould remover. It's not a deal breaker but could... More

I had pre-paid for a room via expedia, upon arriving, it was nice to see that the hotel had plenty of car parking facilities and as I had arrived early and couldn't check in until 3pm, I was still able to use the car park without charge, as the reception provided a card to put on the dash of the...

Revisited this magnificent Hotel and stayed in their oldest room with four poster bed. Large, clean, and quiet notwithstanding it overlooks the main street. Friendly staff, e fantastic Breakfast buffet. This was a return after 18 months and I found with pleasure that the hotel has started employing staff from different countries and it is nice to be greeted in... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as a Chrismas Shopping/R&R break - I know these are usually mutually exclusive, but this hotel made it work. The staff were very attentive and welcoming. The Bar and Lounge are both very cosy and comfortable. The breakfast is a buffet, but do not be put off as it a fantastic quality buffet - really... More

I stayed here as I had an interview at Canterbury Christchurch University, and it was incredibly convenient. The bed was comfortable, breakfast delicious, and staff welcoming! Canterbury was a beautiful place and I intend to return someday for pleasure instead of business!
