What a lovely find. I'd say it's a large B&B rather than a hotel but stunning location and the staff were very helpful. Breakfast was lovely and a short step out of the building and you're slap bang on the middle of Canterbury! Lots of eateries, bars and shops. Free entry into the Cathedral, there is plenty to do.

Got to the hotel very late in the evening but that was no problem, the staff were very helpful. We had car parking in the grounds of the cathedral which was great value for money. The location is fantastic for being in the centre of Canterbury. The hotel itself is like a very big (well appointed) bed & breakfast residence.... More

Stayed one night. Booked by email. Hotel is modern, clean, and delightful. Staff couldn't be more helpful. Included breakfast was. varied and substantial. Kitchen would cook to order and serve what couldn't be found on the buffet. And being on the cathedral grounds is quite a bonus. If driving it's a bit difficult to discover the limited parking in front... More

Lovely modern hotel, rooms exceptionally clean and views of the Cathedral, Staff friendly and helpful and pleasant breakfast. Could be better though if they had a proper restaurant and bar on the premises, bit of a nuisance having to go outside to find somewhere to eat and drink

We had booked 1 night online. Struggled to find the place due to Canterbury's 1-way system and the fact the Lodge is inside the Cathedral precincts (i.e. inside the boundary walls). But we phoned from the car & were guided in by a very helpful receptionist. Staff very helpful. Room smart and comfortable. Guests given a sheet of local eateries... More

A very nice hotel in the grounds of Canterbury Cathedral. Very helpful friendly staff. Spotlessly clean and very central. Plenty of eating places around the cathedral. Lots students around as Kings School is near by

This is a beautiful place. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was on the small side but waking up to a view of the cathedral is such an amazing way to start the day. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choice and good local produce. Must be one of the most relaxing places to stay in... More

Situated within the Cathedral precincts, a very tranquil place in the middle of the city, especially at night as the precincts are closed to the public; guests get a pass. Modern accommodation, reminiscent of a university hall of residence. The room was small but very clean and well equipped for an overnight stay. Breakfast was very good standard fare, well... More
