Had better service in a three star hotel. The room was nice but not what we had booked, hotel failed to notify us that after we booked the room standard had changed also air con unit did not work properly and the shaving mirror was broken. Location is great right in the centre of the town close to all the... More

We were in Canterbury for the cricket (as, it seems, were the rest of the guests at the hotel). The difference was that we weren't part of the England team or the associated TV celebs. No matter. We were treated superbly throughout our stay. Everyone, from front desk to maintenance to waiters to bar staff were friendly, helpful and went... More

The location of this hotel is a dream. Right in the middle of the pedestrianised High St., about equal distance from the Cathedral, the Heritage Museum, The Canterbury Tales experience, the Roman Museum, and the Westgate. - really everything to be seen in the historic heart of Canterbury. None is more than a five or ten minute walk away. Multitudes... More

My experience at Abode was fantastic. It was situated perfectly in the heart of town, amongst many known shops. Everything was convenient and accessible. The staff were friendly and helpful. I will be recommending Abode to my friends and family.

Very well placed for amenities, unable to sleep due to excessive noise from night clubs insufficient sound proofing, some reception staff impolite & unhelpful. Restaurant & bar staff excellent service.

Lovely hotel upon arrival but very small room, and noise from adjoining rooms could be heard quite clearly, ask for a room away from the front as deliveries to the shop below can be very early and is very noisy. If you need a car park nearby make sure you mention it as it is first come first served which... More

A few small complaints (creaking noises through the building, not special rooms, not very comfortable bed) and nothing too much on the plus side made me feel that I was considerably over-charged at 175. 100 would have seemed fairer. Good location and staff helped.

My Husband and I stayed at the Abode, Canterbury for 3 nights in celebration of our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Located in an excellent position for exploring and for our theatre trip to the Marlow, everything was within walking distance. We were warmly greeted at reception where we were told they had upgraded our room in celebration of our special occasion.... More

I can't fault the location, but whilst the environment is chic and right in the hub of Canterbury I wonder if this actually leaves the staff feeling complacent? The staff were useless. One young guy was attentive but unsure. The older guy looked disinterested and actively avoided eye contact. The female was abrupt and lazy. Not a smile or welcoming... More
