Following some fervent TA research I decided to stop over in the cathedral lodge. Clean, comfortable rooms, a great shower and a peaceful place to stay was just what I wanted and got. Location couldn't be better plus your lodge pass gets you free entry into the cathedral too.. Plus you get to stroll around the grounds after 21:00 when... More

Booked a 2 night stay from book.com and was advised we will be staying at the annex. When we arrived we’ve informed they can upgrade us to the main building for the first night which we were quite happy about the arrangement, even though it has a disabled access bathroom. The room itself was small but lovely, with the view... More

My sister booked the Cathedral lodge for her wedding reception, and a number of friends and family were lucky enough to get rooms at the venue as well. The hall was lovely, rooms clean and well equipped and breakfast superb. The library was a nice space to relax as well, and the free wifi much appreciated. Whilst my sister would... More

The lodge is located inside the Cathedral ground surrounded by shops & restaurants. Very convenient! I booked the room 6 months in advance, & fortunately, we're able to book the on-site parking as well. Since we're a family of 3, they assigned us a flat located in a separate building behind the main lodge. It has a big eat-in kitchen,... More

We stayed 2 nights , warm welcome on arrival. Our room was just perfect and well equipped. A view of the beautiful cathedral from our room and the location was peaceful even though a walk of a few minutes took us into the busy streets of Canterbury. The standard of food at breakfast was very high and the staff very... More

We stayed just the 1 night on our way to mainland Europe but we would want to come back for more of this excellent,quirky but unforgettable hotel in the Cathedral precinct - the food, especially the breakfast was exceptional and the service was wonderful.

An average hotel in a location that is superb. Rooms getting a bit tired, but the bed lkinen was crisp and clean and to wake up and walk out into the cathedral close was something special. Breakfast was ok after we had waited for the duty manager to finish a conversation while blocking the entrance to the breakfast room

I booked this stay several months ago as I always struggle to find places I like to stay in Canterbury that are not the usual chain hotels. I came across this hotel in booking.com and liked the look of the rooms and thought it would be great to stay in the Cathedral grounds. I booked rooms for myself and my... More

Just returned from 3 nights at the Canterbury Lodge. Wonderfully situated next to the Cathedral and a great base for exploring Canterbury and the nearby countryside. The hotel was excellent and clean. The rooms 102 was clean and well supplied (small but beautifully formed). Breakfast was excellent and all the staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.... More

We booked an overnight stay in April and had a lovely couple of days wandering around Canterbury. The hotel was very clean, the staff were always smiling and very helpful, the ground floor room (106) although not large was comfortable and had a great view of the Cathedral. The breakfast was excellent and we walked it off around the grounds... More
