Nice rooms (#107), (#125 quite noisy due to ventilation unit outside the window), comfortable beds, modern bath rooms, very friendly staff, pubs, restaurants, cathedral within a few foot steps walk. Perfect for a sightseeing weekend

Our room was obvously 3 storage cupboards knocked together into one. It felt like sleeping in a corridor. Our window overlooked a back alley that was better left hidden. My wife had to descale the shower head before it would work. We arrived for breakfast at 10:20, only to be greated by surly staff telling us that the kitchen closes... More

An over-priced, overrated hotel which needs a totally change of management. The place is suffering from lack of investment only obvious when staying there. Housekeeping is unreliable. Breakfasts are robotic, boring, poor and the room lack any fresh air. Regular complaints at the front desk did not help the general feel of the place. Only good area is the BAR.... More

Right in the centre of the Mediaeval city, this hotel could hardly be better situated for those coming to do touristy things, such as us. Opposite is the Beaney Institute, which, given the city's strong links with under-nines' culture, is sadly devoid of plastic bean filled soft toys, but it does have a Dutch doll that looks like (possibly is)...

Have stayed here a few times, and come to the conclusion that it is the best place to stay in the centre of Canterbury. Good service, breakfast ok but on the pricey side, easy parking ! Haven't eaten in the restaurant for a while as it is quite expensive, but the place is surrounded by restaurants !

Booked this to show off Canterbury for a birthday surprise and it didn't disappoint! Great central location to all amenities in the city- including the cathedral. The room was nice, bit small and smelt like stale smoke (bit disappointing) but we had a meal included in the michelin star restaurant which more than made up for it. Dinner was exquisite... More

Room very basic, but that was good enough for what we wanted. Spent 2 nights enjoying the sights in & around Canterbury. Cathedral a must. Didn't eat at the hotel as we didn't overly like the choice of menu or for that matter cost. We found an Indian restaurant a few yards up the high street that was reasonably priced.... More

Room, service and location all tip top. Taverna food and service very good. Great location right in the heart of the city. Staff very attentive and not a single "no problem". Use the Stour Street post code on Sat nav.

Room very disappointing , supposed to be most desirable, but was not even up to the standard of travelodge, broken tiles on bathroom floor and missing grout, on a better note service and food excellent , and Canterbury an amazing place.
