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

I have stayed one week in this centric B&B in the centre of Canterbury and have a nice experience. The price is fairly good for being in the city centre and the place is clean, well served. Staff was very friendly and helpful in providing information on practical issues about the city. I was there during September, in a particularly... More

A friend & I stayed here for a single night, as we were attending a function locally. The hotel is easy to find and, being around only half a mile from Canterbury West station, is very central. From the outside it’s nothing special and clearly an old building, but the inside is spotlessly clean and has many modern touches. The... More

Friendly enough but the electric powered vacuum based toilet plumbing in room 7 was terrible and made loud sucking noises long after use and then intermitently throughout the night. We had asked, on discovering the problem, whether the power to the system could be disconnected but the answer provided after contacting the Manager was 'Sorry'. The alternate room offered (No....

Its easy to see why the reviews are mixed - found this on foot and perhaps should have struck out for more choices on a Sunday afternoon. Location is excellent, dont expect modern facelift, this has probably changed little in 20 years. Price is a stretch for whats on offer - quirky enough with some useful touches like USB charger...

We stayed overnight on a fleeting visit to Canterbury because our usual hotel (Falstaff) was full. The quaint front was impressive but the interior did not conform, it being rather old fashioned with very steep winding staircase. We too were in Room 8 at the top of the house. It was remarkably small with an en-suite bathroom which one might... More
