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

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!

On the negative (very minor) side, the parking is tight but efficient, the 10m walk into town in the evenings is good to work up an appetite but a little quiet (dark subway or railway bridge into park) and I'm not keen on specifying a 15 minute window for breakfast. But everything else was great - clean room, nice breakfast... More

This was a great experience: - not far from the city centre (within reach on foot) - great breakfast and coffee - discounts for spa procedures (I had a face mask and massage done) - free pool and sauna - pleasant design - big comfy beds - value-for-money Thank you! When we are in Canterbury, we'll come back!

We had both rooms on the top floor front facing. even though this hotel is situated on a main road both rooms were quiet. The wifi in this hotel is excellent and a change from other hotels that promise full internet coverage... More
