Great staff, I was nominated for the ice bucket challenge while away with work in Canterbury and the ladies behind reception helped me complete, they were really friendly and great fun. The rooms are basic but clean, 5 stars because of the great staff.

My husband and I stayed in this travelodge for one night on our way to visit friends. There's a very small car park at the front of the hotel which was full (I noticed later that night that staff were parked in there) so we went to find a space in the car park at the back of the hotel.... More

Great hotel right next to the city centre. Hotel was clean and comfortable with extras available at a reasonable cost if wanted. It was our first visit to Canterbury. Great place. Great friendly staff

Stayed here the last few days. Great for visiting Canterbury and surrounding area. Just a few minutes walk into town so we were able to get out for a meal and few drinks without having to worry about transport. We also ate in hotel on our last night as it was raining so hard didn't fancy going out. Meal was... More

We had a spacious family room with a large double bed and two singles for which we paid a total of £92.00 for Mon, Tues and Wed. Don't be put off by the corridors etc which need a refurb because the bedrooms have been updated. We were worried about the "first come first served" car park but had no problems... More

This hotel would have been great had it not been for the noise problems. We were in room 5 and from 6.45 am each day there was an almighty banging and clattering from what we decided must have been the kitchen area. We also experienced noise from the room above via creaky floorboards. Had it not been for this our... More

Reception team were really friendly interacting with the children. The room was quite hot but reception gave us a fan. The staff seemed to enjoy there jobs and wanting to go... More

After having a disastrous stay at the Ashford branch we decided to plump for the Canterbury branch as this was no further away from the ferryport than our last visit. Like other reviewers we were very disappointed in the lack of parking and the cost if you managed to bag one. We were using our e vouchers given for our... More

Not impressed you have to pay £5 at the desk to park in the travelodge car park or £7.50 at the ticket machine. Rooms very basic had to ask at the desk for a hair dryer and the corridor we was on and our room smells musty and damp not pleasant, now we know why it was on a £39... More
