Best location on Canterbury right opposite Marlowe Theatre and just off High St. Stayed two nights with my family. Very comfortable stay. Beds were good. Room was a little on the small side but ok. Breakfast was ok. They don't use the best ingredients but they certainly give you a big feed.

This hotel is in a top position, just off the high street, in walking distance of shops, theatre, cinema, museums, cathedral and loads of dinning venues. The hotel is a very old building but has recently been refurbished and offers everything you need for a very reasonable price. The breakfast was very good. The staff were lovely and you any... More

I had a delicious dinner in Dems restaurant - the service was excellent and all the staff were very friendly and happy to recommend dishes from the menu. I had the Hachis parmentier which I had never heard of before and was lovely - was nice to eat something a bit different! Inside the hotel was very clean and nicely... More

Very happy stay here with friends and family. Staff very accomodating, food excellent, rooms comfortable. The position in town was central, but quiet with some rooms having very attractive view of cathedral. What more could one ask?

Excellent service and friendly staff with great atmosphere. Will use hotel as my stopover for business trips to UK. Rooms very comfortable with amazing breakfast. All facilities were of a high standard for the amount charged.

I stayed one night, booked for business at short notice. The location within the old town centre was pleasant. The room, and bathroom in particular, was spotlessly clean. Unfortunately I did not have the time to eat at the hotel, but I would hope to stay again to rectify that. The value was excellent and check in was friendly and... More

We stayed for 3 nights. Were seeing a show at the Marlow Theatre which is literally just across the road. Room was compact but spotlessly clean and tidy. A couple of niggles. No bedside table on one side although to make up for it the bed was HUGE and very comfortable. No shaver socket in bathroom, but that gave my... More

Sorry to write a poor review but an empty restaurant (Dems) on a Thursday lunchtime should have told us to not eat here. From 12:30-2:00 we were the only diners. We ordered Scallops and duck starters, they were ok but the mains coq au vin & fillet steak were just terrible. The steak wasn't cooked as we requested, sautéed potatoes... More
