Last year I stayed two nights in this hotel and was satisfied. This year I booked for 7 days and I was as happy as the first time. The staffs are very polite and helpful. The room was clean everyday but where is room for improvement is the bathroom. No hangers for towels and the water system for shower was... More

Booked a twin room for one night and arrived with my wife, parked the car and walked to the hotel. From the outside it looked dilapidated, run down and grubby. We went for a meal and returned at 2pm to book in. Entered a dingy entrance hall with an old bike leant against a wall and followed the receptionist? into... More

We travel extensively and this is the noisiest hotel we have ever stayed in. Excellent position , clean rooms , lovely staff BUT and it is a big "BUT"-the rooms are dated and the vacuum toilet had an unpleasant smell. Our outer window was broken and the room was hotter than a greenhouse. The worst thing was the noise there... More

The Greyfriars Lodge is located in an excellent position only a couple of hundred yards from the High Street – that regrettably is where the positive aspects of this place ends!! I booked in yesterday for a one night stay using Booking.com and arrived a few hours later. Immediately on entering it is obvious this B&B is in a fairly... More

Ideally located right in the city centre. Very friendly staff - it was no problem to drop off my suitcase when I arrived in the morning, even though the room wasn't ready. Nice continental breakfast. As even in much more expensive hotels, the free WiFi isn't the fastest. But you don't go to Canterbury to surf the net!

Very good room with very very friendly staff! Location can't be beaten and very good continental breakfast. Little bit noisy though given the location it could be worse! Would recommend this place especially to the under 30's

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
