Overnight stay at this Hotel. We arrived early evening, the receptionist was very pleasant and welcoming. We were given a map to show where we could park our car, it was a bit on the worrying side when we didn't know the name of the car park. But we found it, and it was only a short walk from the...

Stayed here for 1 night in July because we were seeing Derren Brown at the Marlowe Theater literally a 10 second walk away. Just off the main street it's a great place to base yourself for a stay in Canterbury. Its a very nice and cosy old fashion pub with rooms upstairs. We had the 'Marlowe Room' with a huge... More

This hotel is centrally located, warm and cosy with a great menu and a good breakfast. Rooms are small and could do with a little upliftment but the position is great for getting out and about in Canterbury.

This hotel is ideally placed for doing everything you want in Canterbury, 20yds from the main high street, across the road from the theatre in fact everywhere is within walking distance so leave the car in the car park. I agree there are no lifts but the exercise will do you good, especially after one of their breakfasts. There is... More

Stayed here for two nights when attending a conference at the College of Creative Arts 18th-20th Aug. A traditional hotel with charm and outstanding hospitality. Breakfast was divine! Bedrooms clean and well presented. Thank you

I really liked this hotel - it is old fashioned (no lifts, quite narrow stairs and corridors) and charming (we even had a four poster bed, which was very comfy) and the location is great. It is just off Canterbury high street. The staff were pleasant, the breakfast was good. This would be great if you were on a theatre... More

This hotel is in a great location - close to the Cathedral, shops and other attractions. From the minute we arrived, the staff were polite and friendly. We had been to a wedding during the day so had pre-arranged a late check-in, which went smoothly. We were directed to our room, number 3, which is on the first floor at... More

Very pleasant experience for 3 nights at this hotel in July 2014. Stayed in the suite with the 4 poster bed which was spacious, clean and comfortable, as well as a very decent price. Bathroom was very big and modern. The breakfast is well served and tasty, nothing bad to say. Location wise, the hotel is unbeatable. close to the... More

Rang to book a table for 6.15 as we were seeing a show. Asked if we could get there any earlier as they would be busy. We rushed and arrived at 6.02. Then after waiting over10 mins for our drink order to be taken, went to the bar and ordered. Asked when someone would be over to take our food... More
