Stayed for one night in the barn room which was simply yet stylishly decorated. The hotel had very helpful staff and the place was spotlessly clean. Super location with fantastic view of the catherdral . Highly recommended.

This must have been one of the friendiest places I have stayed at. The hotel is located right next to Canterbury Cathedral on a little square that has a nice pub, wine bar and souvenir shops and is bang in the centre of everything. You can drive up to the hotel and unload your luggage as well as check in... More

Staff were very helpfuful from the beginning to the end of my stay. Rob welcomed me with a smile (even though I checked in just before midnight!) and Nick made sure I could still revise and prepare for my work interview after check out time. The room was Rooftops (literally), quirky and spotless. I shared the bathroom, also perfectly spotless,... More

Next to cathedral and near all sights in town. The room was very clean and comfortable (stayed in Serenity). Hotel staff was very accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. The layout of the hotel is quirky, but seems to be part of its charm. On arrival the dated lobby concerned me and I... More

Right in historic centre this over shops hotel has charm. The rooms are modernly furnished and well kept. The building is eccentric meandering around on many floors and around corners. (Not great if you do not like stairs). The breakfasts were fresh cooked and staff eager to please. Would return if in the area.

Arrived at this lovely hotel on Friday 24/04/2015 - met the lovely Nick, whom I found out was from Romania. He helped with my suitcase, taking it up to my usual room - he is definitely a credit to the hotel. Extremely polite with very good English. I LOVE this hotel because I really do feel like I'm 'one of... More

The owners were very friendly. The room was lovely and the breakfast in the room a real treat. Our room was to the back of the hotel and very quiet, we... More
