We spent 2 nights at the hotel, and were extremely pleased with every facet! The room had all amenities, but was fairly small. Recently redecorated (throughout the entire hotel) the bathroom was spotless and well stocked with potions and lotions, and abundant fluffy towels. There is a very decent indoor heated pool available, and the cosy bar area meets all... More

From our first telephone conversation with the receptionist, Sam, which was followed by a thoughtful and informative email with details of Dog friendly restaurants until the morning that we left, everything was just right. We will certainly return ourselves and highly recommend to others. The room was a good size and very comfortable. Lots of tea and coffee also, thoughtfully,... More

The room, the bed and the breakfast and the environment was just right for a great nights sleep. Clean, comfy and close enough to town to be convenient. The facilities are ample for a good nights stay and I will stay longer next time to take advantage of the Spa and pool. Room was roomy and really clean and the... More

Lovely clean hotel with superb friendly staff. The room was very clean with plenty of tea/coffee/biscuits (and more he we ran out). Did not get to use the pool or spa facilities but will remember this for next time. Small walk to the city centre but in a lovely quiet location.

We had a three night break for our 40th wedding anniversary and felt that we had struck gold with the Canterbury Hotel. The rooms, while not spacious, had been recently decorated and are very well appointed with tea and coffee making facilities. The bed was very comfortable and HUGE. It must class as one of the widest beds I have... More

Had a two night stay in a twin room - the facilities were good with a choice tea in the room and well equipped modern bathroom. The shower was over the bath but it was a bit low - my head was touching it and I'm only 5'9"! The beds were very comfortable but there was no air conditioning so... More

I stay in Canterbury fairly regularly and just discovered the Canterbury Hotel. It looks a bit old fashioned from the outside, but the facilities and rooms are very contemporary. I didn't use the pool but it looked great. Car park is a bit compact ! But the staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good. Would definitely stay... More

We spent one night here during a 12 day trip to England and France. I wish we had spent all 12 nights here. The staff was outstanding, and the rooms were spacious and clean. The bed was by far the most comfortable on on our trip. The hotel is small and quaint, but the service is par for a Four... More

Arrived early Friday afternoon with a party of 4. Our room was not quite ready so we went off to explore the Old Cathedral in Canterbury and enjoy the many pubs/cafes along the way..Had a bite to eat at the local Fish and Chips conveniently located just down the street. When we finally returned for our check-in much later in... More

Only upon returning home did we find out that this hotel is rated number one out of the Canterbury hotels listed on Trip Advisor...and we are not surprised! From the moment we cycled up to the front door one evening to enquire if they had a room for the night we knew we would love it as the two members... More
