The food was wonderful as was the restaurant service however the rooms are overpriced at 89 pounds given the wifi signal is so weak and I needed to get some work done, every other hotel I stay at includes breakfast, considering...

We have stayed here on other occasions, excellent presentation, beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious yet cosy. Staff were incredibly helpful, nothing was too much trouble and the General Manager, Caroline, a credit to the Hotel and the Brand.

Perfectly good quality accommodation. Decor is faded and dated but overall fine. The staff are incredibly helpful and attentive and for a short stay this is good value and enjoyable. Food is hearty and well prepared. Our top-floor room was quite large, but beware, no lift !

Stayed for one evening on the 22nd while visiting family. Friendly greeting from reception. Stayed in a 'superior' room which was a nice size and clean. View was a bit poor as we were at the rear of the hotel which looked over a building site (they are having work done) but no noise and it was really not a... More

Went here for a business event, food excellent, friendly staff, lovely rooms and lovely venue, very close to the city. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Hotel being extended which will be good, would go again for a personal visit.

I was part of a group of 18 staying at the hotel for 5 nights. From start to finish we were all very impressed with overall quality and friendliness of staff. Even though there was another larger group staying this in no way affected the service we received. Rooms were clean and well maintained, but probably the only comment I... More

Good hotel for the price, and fabulous breakfast. Friendly staff. Hotel a bit on the warm side, and the bed was a little soft and lumpy, but overall very nice stay indeed We found the room to be very quiet even with a function going on We are very happy to recommend without any reservations whatsoever...we will stay here again

Dear guest, Many thanks for your review, my staff and I are pleased you had an enjoyable stay and sampled our local British cusine in the Fountain Restaurant. We have just been awarded a Rosette, so always nice to have good feedback from our guests. It is a perfect location to stay and walk into the vibrant city of Canterbury.... More
