We had a room in the annex and the only negatives were no elevator so we had to climb 3 sets of stairs and no internet in the room. BUT... the room was fine for what we needed. The shower would be cramped for a large person. The staff was great, the breakfast was in a pleasant room with a... More

Lovely modern hotel in a great setting. Comfortable en-suite rooms, overlooking Canterbury Cathedral. Good Continental and English breakfast. Great staff, we were welcomed by India at reception, who also recommended some good Pubs for dinner. "The Dolphin" see review. The hotel has three parking spaces in the Cathedral grounds, book early to get these, for me they are a must,... More

To step through the monumental, ancient, Christ church gate into the cathedral precincts has to be up there with breathtaking approaches to one's bed for the night. Nestled in the shadow of this great cathedral, the lodge feels entirely modern yet in keeping with the ancient seat of worship. The campanile garden is a wonderful space at any time of... More

This is a great hotel set within the grounds of the cathedral. The room had stunning views of the cathedral. The rooms are simple but nice. The bed is a single bed which was fine for me. The breakfast was perfect. The room includes entrance to the cathedral which is well worth doing early in the morning before the crowds... More

The hotel is located at the Cathedral precincts and in close proximity to many restaurants and other shopping opportunities. Breakfast is a standard buffet with hot options. Service in the dining room and front desk are amazing. Word to the wise: stayed in the Burgate extension, room faced the street and was kept awake by rowdy pub-crawlers every night! Room... More

Dear Guest, I am sorry to hear that your night's stay in our Burgate Annexe was disrupted by street noise. Please be assured that we do have secondary double glazing for those bedrooms and also provide room fans if you do not wish to leave the windows open at night. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that Burgate street will be quiet... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of August. The staff were excellent in every way, including being a human sat nav and guiding us to the grounds over the phone when we got lost. The rooms were spotless and comfortable with nice toiletries and a view of the cathedral that was unrivalled. Breakfast was a very civilised... More

Very nice place to stay in Canterbury, it was quiet and very central, an easy walk from the station and a great advantage accessing the Cathedral and Cathedral area at no cost. Good breakfast, the only disadvantage was they did not have room service but we shall use the hotel again, highly recommended for your stay in this city.

Stay here if you want to walk to the Cathedral (entry price included in cost of hotel) and stroll to the restaurants, bars and shops! Great service from great staff too! You can also park in the Cathedral grounds but you have to move your car by check-out on your final morning.

Within the cathedral precincts, this is a gem of a place. Very helpful and friendly staff who provide a list of restaurants close by ,and a pass card which allows free access to the cathedral, precincts in the evening, and discounts at those restaurants .Secure parking is £5 per night, and very good pricing make this something of a bargain....
