I had the pleasure of staying here for a business trip recently. I found the hotel to be clean, conveniently located, with very friendly and helpful staff. You are a stone's throw from the city centre - with the Cathedral almost on your doorstep. Due to its location, it's a little noisy at night however - as there is a... More

In the center of Canterbury, it was so easy to quickly go back to the lodge when our shopping bags got heavy. Very old building but cosy, comfy beds. Very friendly and helpful staff. Certainly would go back.

Staff are what you would expect, very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was disappointing. Cereal, toast, selection of pastries, very limited choice of drinks. No cooked breakfast. The room was dirty and the decor and furniture very dated. The bathroom was freezing and the water pressure from the shower was disappointing. I would like to have seen a hand towel in... More

Friends and I booked a family room to stay after a theatre trip and night out last night. Initial thoughts on arrival were not much from the outside. We were let in by a lovely young man who was very helpful and showed us to our room. Now, the hotel is old fashioned and very dated but the room was... More

We stayed at Greyfriars for a night in June 2014. It's right downtown and within a short walk to everything. There is reasonably priced overnight parking(6 GBP per day and a short walk away. Breakfast was fine but lodge needs some work. On a side note, it would be nice to see Expedia (trip advisor) to start offering something in... More

I shall start with the positives - the location is excellent, extremely central to the City Center. The parking is easy to get to, so not far to walk. The staff are absolutely fantastic, especially Donna who was very friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was also lovely - a great buffet choice. However, the room itself was pretty basic... More

When I reserved this hotel, I thought that it would be quite different. I will start with the positives. The location is great. the staff are helpful and friendly, big smiles and ready to help with anything you need. The hotel is dated, carpet is dirty and lots of stairs to climb. The breakfast is sort of a self service,... More

The building is beautiful and located just off the high street which was extremely handy. We had a friendly welcome upon arrival and were taken up to our room at the top of the house. Unfortunately the worn carpet on the stairs did not present a particularly well cared for first impression and this feeling continued into the room. The... More
