Staying with a group of friends to explore the town, over the weekend. My room was quiet, clean and have everything you'd expect. The staff were friendly and helpful staff and breakfast was good. Better than I expected, and in a very good location - easy to walk into the middle of town.

We stayed in the hotel as we were in Canterbury for a friends 30th birthday weekend. We were well looked after by the whole team from the start to finish of our stay - all very friendly and take the time to say hello/make conversation. The hotel is just 10minutes (if that) walk from the centre of Canterbury and was... More

Treated us as though we were the only guests. Charming updated old world facility with a fantastic staff. Would stay again. While all were great, special recognition to Gabriela and Yawad on the staff. Thanks from across the pond.

An excellent business mid week stay. The hotels first impressions from the outside is very good, the indoor tastefully decorated warm and above all very clean indeed. I found the staff to be very friendly and gave a nice welcome each day. We only had breakfast but also found this to be excellent, with a good choice and relaxing surroundings.... More

Hotel was very good and 10 minutes walk from city centre. Breakfast was good although took a long time for poached eggs. Didn't try restaurant as both nights had restrictive times due to pre-booked events. Would still use hotel again though

Having stayed at this property for a number of years it is clear that the owners are striving to increase quality of the property and service and they are succeeding. Location is difficult to better and the staff are very accommodating - particularly the gentleman who manages the breakfast service. Parking may be a short term issue but should be... More

Wow, best ever Best Western I have ever stayed in. Does not come across as part of a chain. From the moment I drove up the drive in the dark to be greeted by a well lit hotel with cosy lights in the windows and warmth the moment I stepped inside, I knew I would enjoy my stay. The room... More

We put the post code into our satnav and it took us to an alleyway in a parallel road - a warning would be useful.Once we found the hotel we got one of the last parking spaces. If you do find there aren't any spaces in the car park do ask at reception as they do have solutions. Our room... More
