This hotel is right in the middle of the High Street, and just around the corner from the Marlowe Theatre, which was the reason for our stay. We opted for the Spring Sensations offer which included dinner, bed & breakfast. Room (desirable) was OK. Nothing fancy but clean and the bed was super comfortable. Our only disappointment was that the... More

For the price of a stay I was disappointed in the hotel. The staff were a little 'snooty' and unfriendly, however the worst part was the incredibly soft mattress that was impossible for me to sleep comfortably on so I slept on the floor. That is unacceptable for the price of a stay, a decent, relatively new mattress is the... More

Although the more expensive hotel in Canterbury (not by much) do not let it put you off. A great hotel, service etc as you would expect. Very good and will stay again. Only downside is the parking is extremely limited and the only other option is to park five minutes away using a voucher supplied by the hotel, also the... More

I stayed at the abode on Friday 11th April 2014. This hotel really is lovely, and would recommend it to anyone what is looking for a town centre location where all the sights really are on your door step. The cathedral is just a few minutes walk, river boat trips are great fun . We didn't have an evening meal... More

My wife and I married at The Abode on 05/04/14. As a gay couple we had faced a few difficulties finding a hotel that were acceptable of our love, from the moment we stepped into The Abode we knew it was the right place. From the start the event planner Adriana made us feel welcome and we knew before even... More

Thank you for your review, its disappointing you did not enjoy your stay. We do have 4 higher category of bedrooms to the room type you booked available which do offer more space with sofas and additional seating, our comfortable and desirable rooms just have a desk chair. I do apologise for the inconsistencies with the housekeeping which will be... More

I have just spent the weekend at the Abode for my friends Civil Partnership and I have to say, what an amazing time we all had including the bride's. There was no job to small for the staff in the hotel and it was a pleasure to stay here. Special thanks to Adrianna for organising the day, Matt for the... More

My wife and I booked the 'indulgence package' and it was excellent. The room was very comfortable and the food in the restaurant was first class. All members of staff were very polite, cheerful and extremely helpful. A great location to visit all the sights of Canterbury. Thanks to ABode for a memorable stay.

We have stayed at all the Abode hotels and this is certainly one of the best. The location is great being right in the heart of the medieval city and just a short walk to the cathedral, however accessing the hotel by car is not easy due to the pedestrianisation of the city , the narrow lanes and the hotel's...

I stayed here on business and found the hotel charming. The location is excellent, right on the High Street. The High Street position should not put any potential guests off as there is no excessive noise owing to the excellent soundproofing. A good gym as well. I would have given this hotel five stars had it not been for the... More
