There are many good things about this hotel. It is a little quirky and characterful, as you'd expect from a hotel of its age. It is very well located and eat to find. The staff are very nice and helpful. However, the breakfast is just ok. And the room (no 7) I stayed was terrible. Barely wider than I am... More

This hotel's rooms are well appointed and they have proper-sized single rooms - rather than the box-rooms that I have encountered elsewhere. The breakfast is Full English with top quality ingredients. I congratulate the hotel manger for his diligence in helping me resolve a problem that arose.

I travelled to Canterbury on business and stayed at The Pilgrims for five nights. I stayed in room #2. The room was just sad with a stuffy carpeted floor (bring you antihistamines!), a soft & uncomfortable bed, banged-up furniture and ancient windows, no proper space for luggage, and no fridge (something that most travelers would appreciate having). Add the 'lovely'... More

I stayed 3 nights in this hotel which is in the middle of Canterbury. My room was a single which was smallish but very clean and comfortable. It had a nicely appointed on-suite bathroom with shower over bath. The room rate included a very nice choice of cooked/uncooked breakfasts with all the usual trimmings. The staff were very friendly and... More

Charming historic hotel right in the heart of Canterbury. We were warmly welcomed by the staff who had our room all set up for us, including an extra bed for our third child. The room is on the third floor, and there is no elevator, but the staff offered more than once to help us with our luggage. There were... More

This is a small but very smart hotel in a great location directly opposite the Marlowe theatre and a stones throw from the High St. This is an old building which has been tastefully refurbished and has lots of character. The room I was given was very clean had a beamed ceiling and a nice ensuite bathroom. Staff were very... More

Nice hotel. Our room was small but this is a lovely very old building so only to be expected. Comfy bed, clean and tidy room. Slightly let down by breakfast, it was so quiet it felt awkward and the eggs benedict tasted cheap and sweet. Good friendly staff though.

Beautiful and central. I stayed in The Carlisle room. Well appointed and the bed was heavenly. So close to every thing. Breakfast was very nice. Wil go back there. Right next to the river with a tranquil view just 50 meters away. Marlow theatre right across. Just the place to be to explore and absorb the feeling of old Canterbury.
