Stayed at Ersham Lodge in order to attend a job interview in the City - the location was really good, with sufficient parking and just a 5 min walk into the town centre. The room I stayed in was comfortable with everything I needed for my stay - tea, coffee, ensuite facilities and TV. Owners were lovely and went out... More

The one + about this establishment is it's proximity to the City centre/Cathedral. But beware! The photos and description on the website do not match the reality. The bedroom was in a state of decorative disrepair: torn wallpaper, cobwebs hanging from the walls, stained tea-tray (and milk cartons 3 months out-of-date). The ensuite bathroom door had no catch so could... More

Very friendly homely feel to this place. Great location within easy walking distance of the walls of canterbury. Breakfast was very good, the quantity and quality was excellent. Thank you Elaine for your help with our son on freshers' week you made him feel welcome.

Credit where credit is due. The breakfasts were lovely and served by a true gentleman. Location was walking distance to city centre which was a plus. Unfortuntely that is where the accolades end. Ersham Lodge advertises itself on the website as having delightfully appointed public areas and bedrooms which have been carefully and tastefully re-modeled. Pictures on the website seem... More

We found Ersham Lodge to be a little on the grim side. On the positive side, great location, within easy walking distances of the walls of Canterbury and the cathedral. Nice, friendly, helpful male host. On the negative side, female host was rather prickly and intimidating. She seemed to view guests as a constant source of irritation. Forms were shoved... More

The title says it all... the things that stop it getting a 5/5 rating are probably the same sort of things that contribute to its easy-going and friendly character... so I wouldn't change a thing :) Thanks Elaine for a great stay, you helped make our time in Canterbury extra special...

3 friends and I stayed at Ersham Lodge after watching a twenty 20 cricket match (Kent v New Zealand). I have to say that we received the warmest of welcomes from the owner Elaine Kemp, who showed to and around our rooms, that were spotless and very comfortable. Following a good night out in Canterbury, at various hostelries, a good... More

I have stopped here before and have to say it remains a comfortable place to stay, good breakfasts with a number of options and both David and Elaine are pleasant and very approachable. I'm not going to say everything is perfect (Classic FM is a bit heavy first thing - come to thing of it anytime) but I will definately... More
