This hotel is approximately a 10 minute walk to the cathedral. What a find! Ample car parking, friendly and helpful staff and a wide choice of breakfasts cooked to perfection! Guests had access to the swimming pool. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel. The indian restaurant close by is worth a visit.

We stayed here yesterday and I was delighted with this hotel. The room was lovely and there was no problem with the staff bringing up a cot for our daughter. There is a beautiful pool and sauna here. We were lucky enough to be the only ones in it for an hour. It was very nice indeed. Breakfast was delicious... More

The hotel is situated on the outskirts of the city. The centre is about a 15 minute walk, there is nothing much situated around the hotel itself. Although we did eat at the Indian restaurant which was just along the road. Parking is provided and there is a spar and swimming pool. We asked for a room at the rear... More

We love to visit industrial estates and the Wincheap industrial estate , which is a stones throw away from the hotel , is second to none. The city isn't far away and I highly recommend the gas works route We did enjoy the hotel stay...comfy beds... Pool was nice...a bit small but wasn't busy when we went.

We really enjoyed our stay here over the Easter weekend, the hotel is close to town with parking, the bedroom was beautiful with a four-posted bed, and the facilities including pool were great. It was a shame but the spa was full so we couldn't have any treatments, so I'd recommend booking early for that. Staff very friendly indeed, and... More

What a lovely hotel. Really enjoyed our stay here. Very friendly helpful reception who took us to our room. Seems like they've tried to think ahead to make everything nice and easy for you. The car park is a bit tight, but was no issue as several spaces were empty. Nice sized room with a large bed. Two packets of... More

This is a very nice hotel about 10 -15 minutes walk from the heart of Canterbury. We stayed in a superior double room which was spacious with a very, very comfortable bed. The staff were extremely pleasant and the breakfast delicious. The only reason we can see that it's only a 3 star hotel is that they don't have a... More

The Good - The staff are attentive and on the ball - The shower is amazing - My wife was happy to have on an on-site spa The Bad - Our room was quite cramped and there was hardly any space between the bed and the wall so I had to crawl over it rather than slide off to get... More

love the staff and facilities at this hotel/spa! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, the breakfasts smell divine, the swimming pool is a nice size and very relaxing. It's a must stay place and i think the staff do this place justice!
