This is a great hotel to stay in if you are visiting Canterbury,. Although it is not cheap the location of it,s setting more then compensates for the price. Stunning views of the Cathedral from the windows. Restricted parking however ,but nearby public car parks are available with reduced vouchers available from reception

This is a gem of a hotel in the peaceful grounds of the Historic Cathedral. Everything was just perfect especially the view. Rooms were comfortable, very clean with all the added luxury requirements in toiletries. The staff are fantastic and exceptionally helpful. We had a wonderful stay and hope to be back again soon.

Probably the best located hotel in Canterbury, actually within the Cathedral precincts. Small but clean and adequate rooms; ours had a Cathedral view. Staff efficient and friendly. Breakfast good with lots of choice. Parking on site for a very reasonable extra charge. The location is very peaceful and quiet. Security staff monitor access in a polite and friendly fashion. Strongly... More

Amazed by the brilliant and convenient location, within the grounds of Canterbury Cathedral. Inexpensive (£5 a day) and secure parking is available within the magnificent grounds. The grounds have their own security gate and professional security staff were very smart and helpful. All lodge staff were smart, friendly, helpful and efficient, nothing too much trouble to make our stay very... More

We had our wedding reception at the lodge in May and stayed here for two nights. All I can say is what a fantastic experience it was with amazing staff. Nothing was ever too much and every member of staff we came into contact with was simply brilliant. Gorgeous rooms, gorgeous views, just an overall wonderful experience. I would highly... More

What a wonderful venue for our daughter's wedding. I hoped it was going to be good, but it actually exceeded our expectations. Everything was just as she wanted, a magnificent setting and a beautifully decorated room which was large enough to accommodate all the guests, yet somehow still felt intimate. The food and service were excellent, and the hotel accommodation... More

Stayed 1 night and paid for a Cathedral view room which was worth every penny. Small but clean and a very good view especially in the evening when the lights came on. Breakfast was excellent with impeccable service and Jane on reception was very accommodating with the car parking situation. Would stay again.

We had a poor nights sleep until about 4am because of a room full of young girls making a lot of noise in the room next to us! I suggest that if they be allowed in a room together their parents should be put next to them so they can keep an eye on them.

For a birthday treat my partner and I decided to stay here for two nights - although there were cheaper options we ended up saving money with free complementary entry into the Cathedral, cheap car parking, a range of local restaurant discounts and stunning Cathedral views! The hotel itself was lovely with friendly staff, comfortable rooms and a tasty breakfast... More
