Having booked directly with the hotel by phone and receiving very good customer service I was feeling very confident about staying at the Falstaff even though they had informed me about the building work. However, after reading some of the negative reviews I was becoming a bit concerned that maybe the stay might not be as enjoyable as hoped. I... More

We booked in for one night after a touring holiday of France & Spain. When we booked we were advised that there was no meal option as work was being done on the kitchen. When we arrived all the front of the building was closed off and scaffolded. We entered around the back to find the car park full of... More

This hotel has rooms in a converted barn and no common rooms while the refurbishment is taking place. Our room had a very comfy bed with good quality sheets. The bathroom was dated and the loftwindows did not allow airing and were very dirty. The onsite parking and the location made it worthwhile staying here

The hotel has no communal areas, breakfast is delivered to your room in a prison like service manner. The room was reasonably clean, but on the ground floor on what seems to be the busiest road in Canterbury. Alarm clocks on Monday morning are provided free of charge in the form of the recycling bins being emptied. Not the best... More

I stayed for three days on recreational visit to Canterbury. Hotel is currently undergoing construction which might not be completed in less than six months. The room I was staying had no Wi-Fi. I got up every morning with the noise of construction workers ( where I wanted to have all the sleep in the world). Room was very small... More

We booked this hotel in March for our planned June visit; selecting it because it had very good reviews on Tripadvisor and looked quaint and olde worlde. Although some travellers had made reference to its being renovated, I was under the impression that it would all be finished by the time we went. About a week before we travelled, I... More

To be fare, the hotel is undergoing work in the Bar and restaurant area, so these are out of bounds. We didn't know this, but our friend who booked the hotel for us, had been made aware. But the rooms, although comfortable and had everything we needed, they are tired and dated. Wallpaper on ceiling pulling away, bathrooms looking tired... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on Friday as we were visiting Canterbury to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel is in an excellent location for the city centre and we arrived earlier than check in and parked in the hotel car park. We spoke to the receptionist who said we could leave our vehicle there and check... More

We had a really pleasant stay at this hotel, despite the refurbishment that was going on. The location is perfect for all amenities and free parking a real bonus. Continental breakfast very good value.

I booked on Booking.com a few weeks before visiting, and as there was no option to pay extra or any mention of extra cost for breakfast I assumed it was included. The week before I arrived I received an email explaining they were doing major renovations: "You are receiving this email as you have booked a bed and breakfast rate... More
