As the ones who read my reviews will know by bug bear is the Tea Tray and towels in the bathroom and I am please to say this hotel passed muster on both counts. The tray was well stocked with tea bags,milk coffee and hot chocolate as well as Walkers shortbread biscuits. Chunks was in his element. The towels were... More

We came as a group of 5 for a one nights stay and couldn't fault our night here at all. Located only a 15 minute walk from the town centre, it provided us with all the comforts we needed and more. The rooms were clean, spacious, and most of all, the beds were really comfortable. The staff were charming, and... More

I have stayed at the Canterbury Hotel a few times now and enjoy every visit. Staff are very friendly and helpful and welcoming. It is a perfect location, just a short walk into the centre. Secure free parking which is a bonus. My room was a great size with all amenities I could need. I will definitely return!

We booked two rooms in this lovely hotel as we were entertaining some foreign members of the family and wanted to show them Canterbury after doing the Shakespeare Experience last year. The hotel staff were friendly and warm (although extra toast requests were met with a little amazement). The food (breakfast only) was a joy to behold and included in... More

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.
