We stayed one night at this hotel in Canterbury which, although small, was very clean and comfortable with a small heated indoor pool and sauna and a bar on the premises. We enjoyed all of the facilities - the pool and sauna was enjoyable at the end of a busy day just to unwind and relax in. The room rates... More

We stayed at the Canterbury for two nights while visiting friends in the area. The hotel is clean and comfortable with very friendly staff. We were made to feel very welcome. Free car parking, a small swimming pool and delicious breakfasts.

I stayed just one night in Canterbury and needed a place stay with my dog. Anyone who travels with their four legged friend will know how challenging it can be to find anywhere to stay - let alone a genuinely lovely hotel. The Canterbury Hotel is three star hotel but I think punches above it weight. Warm, cosy, decent sized... More

We stayed here at the end of November.Our room was very well appointed. The breakfast was very very good. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The hotel bar lacked atmosphere but there is a free house just down the road. Would thoroughly recommend.

Receptionists were very helpful, the room was very nicely appointed. We were right on the road, but the noise wasn't the problem that other people have mentioned. Breakfast was very nicely done. The pool was a bit on the cold side. We used the spa facilities and found them very nice! Overall we had a very lovely time.

After reading all good reviews about this hotel, we were looking forward to staying in this hotel. However, unfortunately I can not say it worthed what we paid. The room was by the street and very noisy ( although we asked for a quiet room before arriving), the bed was very old and creaking. The swimming pool was very small... More

The rooms are spotless, redecorated and comfortable. I wouldn't have chosen the decor but it is perfectly acceptable. The staff are efficient and in a crisis exceptionally helpful (getting emergency photocopies made at 11pm or ensuring that staff are there for a late arrival). The bar is a little soulless but offers a glass of wine (ordinary but drinkable) for... More

Very clean room and helpful staff. A long walk to town but not a problem for us. Have pool, very small but nice, did not try the sauna. Lucy was very pleasant Breakfast could be improved but we would stay again. Ask for a room away from the road noise.
