Stayed here for 2 nights. 0ur room was nice and clean and spacious ( only negative was the flowers were just plonked in the vase still with the rubber band on them ) but that's me being picky .

We stayed here for a night in Feb. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the main tourist attractions and has a large car park. Check in was simple, the room (a standard double) was lovely and the wifi was better than most hotels I've stayed in recently. Breakfast was particularly good, the salmon and eggs were very nice...

We stayed here for three nights using an Amazon Local deal, so the stay was good value. Our room was not ready on arrival at 2pm, however we did not mind as we were intending to walk into Canterbury anyway, and the reception staff made it sound as though the room we would wait for was better than another one...

My wife and I stayed here in Feb 2015 for a 2 night stay and had a wonderful experience. The location is perfect if you want to be able to wander into town but not have the noise of having it on your doorstep. Plenty of parking and a really good hotel bar. Breakfast was a full english buffet (or... More

We had two rooms when we stayed for one night. Spacious and well equipped. I gave the rating because I can not thank the staff enough for the kindness they showed. I became unwell whilst there, with a tummy bug. During the night they brought jugs of iced water and an extra duvet. They allowed toast to be brought up... More
