This hotel is in an excellent location, near all the sites, shops and restuarants, but the hotel is now starting to show signs of wear and tear. It also needs a very good clean, not only in rooms, but in public areas as well, and staff should be aware of litter, being left in loos, chairs in lobby and bar... More

On arrival,staff sorted the parking of the car in a locked secure area... More

I have stayed in this hotel several times since it was the County Hotel (that name is still shown on the outside of the building). It has been refurbished and the room I stayed in this time was much better appointed than before with much improved bathroom and bedroom. Unfortunately, as I didn't need to eat either lunch or dinner... More

Perfectly decent hotel in a great location in what passes as a boutique style. So far so good , but a hotels' key product is a place to kip......... This you will find hard as the noise comes from every direction. Drunks on the street are not much suppressed by the secondary glazing.Fellow guests share their excitement at being in... More

If we didn't like anything it was changed, we got upgraded courtesy of the hotel to the fabulous suite which was certainly a 'wow' factor. The food was amazing no complaints from anyone only compliments on how fabulous it was! Steve well,... More

I googled hotels in Canterbury and apart from the normal Premier Inn there was this little gem of a hotel right in the heart of the town. It had great reviews and the price was about the same as the Premier so we took a chance. It was lovely, the staff were friendly and the room was good too with... More

Stayed here recently on business. A lovely hotel right in the heart of Canterbury Lovely well appointed rooms. Staff are attentive without being overbearing. Didn't eat in the restaurant but menu looked exciting. Would definitely stay here again when next in the area.
