The budget option of staying in the annex to the lodge is ideal if you're a wanderer not planning on staying on site too much (doors slam. walls are thin and neighbouring guests are not always considerate!). Excellent room facilities, friendly staff especially upon arrival, good size rooms... A shame the breakfast isn't really that great. Was much better when... More

Location, location, location. The lodge is right within the cathedral walls. We had a partial view from our room of the cathedral. The cathedral is beautifully lit at night. A perk of staying at the lodge is that you can walk the cathedral grounds in the evening when the other visitors are gone and you have free entry into the... More

Have stayed twice, first time in the main building and second time in courtyard. Liked the first one much better, as it had more room, a view and room was more in contemporary style. The hotel is in cathedral grounds which makes it unique stay in old town Canterbury. Liked the peaceful environment and a library for working. Breakfast with... More

I had to stay here at short notice for one night on 18th August due to a mix up at a nearby hotel. The receptionist could not have been nicer or more helpful. She is a credit to the establishment and a great ambassador for them. The room was more than adequate, similar to a premier inn. Bed extremely comfortable... More

Just returned from a trip to Canterbury staying at the lodge, this is within the grounds of the Cathedral and gives you unlimited access to the Cathedral too. The lodge is very comfortable and clean, relaxing with friendly helpful staff. Breakfasts are tasty and plenty and lots of choice, although you must ask for exactly what you want on yr... More

We stayed overnight for a friends wedding reception which was being held at the Lodge. The location was perfect, room was lovely overlooking the courtyard with views of the Cathedral and had everything needed, although the bathroom was quite small with only a shower rather than a bath. Reception staff were good and provided some ideas for lunch in the... More

We arrived after a long journey from France having never visited Canterbury before to a hotel with the most amazing view of Canterbury Catherdral. The welcome we received at reception was good; informative and polite, and we were given specific details about the parking and access to the hotel which was very helpful. The room was fine, but I was... More

I had a hard time locating the hotel. Rachel in reception was very helpful and patient. Make sure you reserve a parking space inside the cathedral grounds other wise parking is far. Room was a nice size, clean, and comfy. Bed too soft for my taste. Very recommended

I was going to give this a four rating, but the way I feel today, so tired, it's lucky it's getting a two. First the good points. The hotel is located in the grounds of the cathedral, right in the centre of Canterbury. So you get to park your car inside the wall and look around the cathedral and grounds... More

The location is perfect for the Cathedral and city centre. The room was very good - my only minor quibble is that the shower had seen better days. But it was clean. Staff were friendly; breakfast was good.
