The Abode Hotel in Canterbury is unmatched in its offering. Luxurious rooms, a decadent restaurant and stylish champagne and cocktail bar make for a very special experience. Our Most Enviable room was immaculate, and touches such as the basket of complimentary snacks were greatly appreciated. Staff including Richard, Jonathan and Niamh (there were many more) went above and beyond to... More

From the greeting from the lovely blonde on reception to leaving it was an outstanding little stay. There are some small flaws, parking isn't ideal and the TV is a little low to watch in bed but on the same not its a 5 minute walk and who on earth is concerned about watching TV, get out the hotel for...

This was my first stay in an ABode hotel. I had the "comfortable" (basic) room and it was fine. Small but not cramped. I didn't eat breakfast at the hotel but did have lunch in the pub around the back. It was excellent. I probably wouldn't return but not because I had a bad experience, only because the concept wasn't... More

We recently stayed at the Abode for a birthday treat over Easter weekend. Our arrival was good, we were helped by a helpful young man who carried up our bags and were met by a colourful gas balloon on the bed wishing a happy birthday - a lovely touch. The room was a good size and smelt fresh and clean.... More

Once again, we had a great stay at this hotel. Our Most Enviable room was lovely and we had a great night's sleep. We always enjoy the food in the restaurant and the champagne bar was great. A big thank you to Declan and all the staff!

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
