We arrived from a long haul trip at 12 and was told we could only check in at 3,so needless to say, we were a bit sleepy and unhappy! However, that was the ONLY bad point and it's not a huge problem as it did say check in time was 3pm when we booked it. Now onto the good -... More

We stayed in the canterbury suite which was very nice, really comfortable bed and slept very well in it and was clean and tidy and had plenty of space and storage for clothes etc, I can honestly say when it comes to the room there was no downside! Location was fab, was... More

My family and my small dog and I needed to visit a friend who was just leaving Canterbury after studying at the university there for three years. After much research to try to find somewhere pleasant and clean that was prepared to take dogs, I found the Canterbury Hotel and booked the family room. The hotel was up to the... More

The hotel is situated about 10 mins walk from the centre of Canterbury. Our room and the hotel in general was spotless. Had a great treatment in the Rose Garden Spa and every member of staff was helpful, friendly and made us feel really welcome. Good selection for breakfast. Our 2 night break was great value for money - I... More

This is a well situated hotel and most of all well run, it is clean and friendly. The bedrooms are spacious and well appointed. Canterbury centre is only a 10 minute walk, with good secure free parking, what more do you need.

After a recent visit to the hotel we could find no fault with the hotel staff or accommodation, however we were disappointed with the cleanliness in the swimming pool. First impressions are that it is very inviting, but just above the water line we noticed some grime, which in our opinion should be cleaned more regularly. Otherwise, very enjoyable.

We spent one night at this hotel. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and clean. The service is outstanding. Vast selection for breakfast and peaceful location. Ample car park, just a ten minute walk to the City Centre. A perfect location for a perfect weekend away.

Last minute booking we were welcomed warmly. Stopping in the oldest part of the building in the four poster room. Clean, comfortable and delightful. The tea making facilities are good, We are able to have a pot of tea that we can brew nicely to our taste. We are swimming every day in the lovely warm indoor pool and making... More

Outstanding service. I ride a motorbike and they let me put it in a shed, despite the ample car park. Vast selection for breakfast. The most beautiful beer garden I've ever seen. Clean, good size rooms, mine walked through from overlooking the street to the beer garden. One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in.
