The hotel is the former Chaucer hotel and is different to many of the chains hotel as rooms vary in size and shape. I had a large double room, with shower room. It is a 2 minute walk to the city centre. Pillows were very uncomfortable. Staff and cleanliness were excellent. I would consider staying here on a future trip.

Stayed here for 2 nights reticently, and I have to say it was a pleasant experience. When we arrived we was greeted by very friendly staff, we soon checked in and was up in our room unpacking for the nights away. The beds were comfy and spacious, the bathroom was fairly big and overall there was lots of room. Parking... More

Sorry for the boring title. I am not good at titles. The hotel is in a great situation for the centre of Canterbury - cross the road and you are inside the walls. Easy parking outside, but I was glad that I looked at Google Maps before getting there as you have to go through the backstreets. Top secret -... More

This hotel was just steps away from the main attractions.Quiet, did not hear the traffic from the road. It was spotlessly clean and the staff were very polite and helpful. Easy parking in front for £5 a day. Comfortable bed, hot shower for a very good price. Have stayed in places costing twice as much and have got biscuits and... More

Received a phone call from Dawn while on train to Canterbury - was worried there might be a problem with my reservation. Couldn't call back (battery nearly dead!), so arrived at hotel and spoke to Dawn, who said there wasn't any problem. Room was clean (although a bit small, but didn't matter as I was only sleeping there!) & appreciated... More

I am a part time student attending a nearby University who was staying for one night as part of a college study weekend. The hotel is more than adequate for a overnight or long weekend stay. The rooms are simply laid out, but the outstanding feature of my room was the bed, It was one of the most comfortable hotel... More

I had planned a child free day for my wife and me, including an overnight stay in Canterbury. After spending out on Marlowe Tickets and budgeting for lunch, dinner and several drinks in the local pubs, I didn't really have stacks of money left for a hotel. We have previously stayed in the Catherdral Gate Hotel (which is a corker),... More

A great location for my weekly trips to Kent. Thanks to Dawn and her team - always go that little extra mile, always friendly and helpful. I would recommend the Chaucer Travelodge to anyone who visits Canterbury... Easy access to the town and the rooms are always clean and and of high standard.

We were visiting our daughter for the weekend and needed a reasonably priced hotel just to go back to at the end of the day. This hotel is all the things mentioned in the previous reviews ie easy walking distance to town, cheap parking - only £10 for the whole week end. We had B and B and the breakfast... More

I found my experience at the Travel lodge, very good. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the food was good and service was excellent. I would recommend this place for anyone to stay, as it also is in good walking distance to the town centre.
