We went to Canterbury for a weekend away and stayed at the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge. It is a lovely hotel within the grounds of the Cathedral. The rooms were very modern and spotlessly clean. We had a great view of the Cathedral from our room. We also enjoyed a hearty, cooked to order breakfast the next morning. I booked the... More

Yet another great stay at Canterbury Cathedral Lodge. Accommodation comfortable and clean as ever, staff marvellously welcoming and helpful. Breakfast freshly cooked to order and beautifully presented. Looking forward to our next stay later in the year.

We actually phoned the hotel to book as we found the online booking challenging. The lady who took the booking was very helpful and efficient. We followed the directions and were so impressed by the location. Reception was friendly and efficient. We were pleased with our welcoming room with the incredible views of the Cathedral. We would have attended Evensong,... More

Lovely restrained, first class place. Good staff, very nice rooms, excellent food and absolutely in the centre of Canterbury. Very tasteful, great for retreat, conference pr just visiting. Parking is limited so come by train and enjoy a 15 min walk through the historic city centre.

Just being able to walk out of the hotel and into the Cathedral in seconds was fantastic, especially early or late while there are no crowds. The price you pay is finding the hotel (hard to find, and gatemen are surly) and parking issues (limited spaces, faff with permits). Very clean, modern rooms. Lovely breakfast - great quality cooking. Rooms... More

Stayed for one night last night and it was fabulous. Not the easiest place to locate as unfamiliar with Canterbury but we were sent excellent directions. Our twin room had four windows as it was part of the turret effect and we had two comfortable chairs and a table so could sit and look out at the lodge grounds and... More

Stayed last saturday night. Arrived saturday morning, collected pass from reception and was able to come and go from hotel grounds with no problem. Slightly difficulty in finding way into grounds from Burgate with car, but our own fault as hotel had sent directions which we forgot to take. Carparking arranged by hotel outside the grounds is very reasonable priced... More

We had some difficulty finding our way to the lodge - it is adjacent to the cathedral but trying to find the correct way in was not simple. We drove through the pedestrian area twice and finally asked several people who furnished directions. When we checked in, there was some confusion about parking. The hotel attendant said they only had... More

We have stayed here a couple of times before and once again we were extremely satisfied with Lodge. Staff, hotel room and breakfast is outstanding and the surroundings are awe-inspiring. Well done Canterbury Cathedral Lodge and thank you.
