Stayed here for two nights and was made to feel very welcome. All staff were great and a special thank you to Adoria who couldn't do enough for us. She recommended restaurants, called taxis and gave great customer service. The breakfast in the morning was amazing, a lovely cold selection to choose from then a breakfast cooked how you like...

I have no complaints about the place whatsoever. Clean, friendly, efficient, value-for- the-money, Excellent Wi-Fi that worked first time and good car parking too. Trip Advisor need me to write more to validate this review, but what more can one say?

This hotel is excellent for a 3 star. Friendly welcome and friendly staff in general. Nice clean rooms with plenty of consumables. Good sized pool A really good breakfast with really nice lady serving. Close to town and all the great places you can choose to eat. Will be going back in the summer when we can enjoy the garden.

Spotlessly clean peaceful room with comfortable bed, good size bathroom and a generous selection of teas, coffee and shortbread biscuits. Excellent choice of English breakfast items cooked to order, in addition to a continental breakfast selection.... More

Clean, friendly, good location with parking - we left the car and walked the 15 mnutes to the centre of town - pleasant walk. Good breakfast. We booked a suite for 1 night located at the front of the hotel on the main road but we didn't find it noisy. We didn't have time to use the pool or the... More

We stayed at the Canterbury Hotel as part of a large family group that had met up to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. We had booked five rooms in the older part of the hotel; all were of a good standard. The staff were excellent; friendly and happy to help with anything like organising taxis. The hotel is situated about... More

I loved this hotel! I recently stayed with two friends in one of the family rooms. It was very clean (I am a bit OCD in the cleanliness department so I was more than happy.)The beds were extremely comfortable. The breakfast was delicious, especially the scrambled egg. But the best thing was how we were made to feel so welcomed... More

The hotel was well presented and the staff, I felt, went out of their way to assist with any queries. Breakfast was full English and quickly served. The pool was well kept and I travelled with my Aunt who was also impressed with the facilities.

I booked last minute based on trip advisor feedback. I called the hotel to let them know I would probably be arriving quite late. They said the check in normally closes at 11 but if I got stuck in traffic to give a call and they would stay open. excellent customer service. Very nice rooms, had bath robes, Jacuzzi tub... More
