I loved this Hotel. Such a brilliant location, adjoining the Cathedral Gate in the heart of Canterbury, and close to all the shops, restaurants etc. It had so much character, I loved the quaintness of the building (built with timber, sloping floors and winding passageways). We did not get a Cathedral view but I think ours, overlooking the Old Butter... More

We have just returned from our stay and really enjoyed the hotel. The staff and owners are very helpful and friendly, they really put themselves out to make sure you enjoy your stay. We had a room at the front and had read the reviews saying it can get quite noisy in the mornings but you should expect that if... More

I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely hotel by referral from a friend. Location, excellent. The room was small but ample for my needs. The shared bathroom was very clean. I had an amazing view of the cathedral from my bedroom window. The continental breakfast was delicious. I will have no hesitation to recommend this hotel to others.... More

Returning for a school reunion in the cathedral precincts at the weekend of 11/12 October 2014, I stayed at this hotel and enjoyed a magnificent close-up view of a flood-lit cathedral from my top single room, evoking first memories of 68 years ago. Happy staff, excellent service and a first class "continental" breakfast, I would happily stay there again and... More

We stayed here over the bank holiday weekend in August and really enjoyed our stay here. We picked this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We loved the historical value of the hotel, the quaintness of the building (built with timber and had sloping floors) and its location. The hotel was right in the centre of... More

We stayed here in June 2014 for a long weekend. What a great place with heaps of charm. Sipping a glass of reasonably priced wine from the bar as the sun went down overlooking the cathedral was a highlight of the holiday. This is the only hotel that I have ever stayed in where I have had fresh toast brought... More

Just stayed the night here on Monday 15th Sept 2014 for my daughters graduation in the Cathedral. An amazing old building full of charm and curiosity.....would have loved to have been allowed round the whole hotel, so many nooks and crannies. The Cathedral made an amazing back drop from the outdoor terrace and so central to the excitment of the... More
