We stayed here for the weekend in November. It was my hubby's birthday so we stayed in the room with the 4 poster bed. The staff were all very welcoming and helpful. The hotel is well situated so that you can walk into town (about15mins walk). Breakfast was great with a varied menu. We didn't eat in the hotel for... More

From the moment we checked in we knew that we were on a winner, the person on reception in the process of giving us the information on the hotel went on to supply a map of canterbury with places of interest, next a very good greeting from the barman and a well needed beer,then on to the resturant, super environment...

Rooms were clean and neat and of decent... More

The hotel is well placed, only 15-20 minutes from the city centre. We had a lovely family room for us and our two children. Good parking was available and reception staff were welcoming and knowledgeable. The breakfast experience was disappointing due to lack of staff attention.

The staff was very helpful and tried to attend all our demands. The room was lovely and location it is very good, a 10-minute walk to the City Centre. They have a good bar too, where they serve some ales.

Staff were excellent, very helpful and accommodating. We booked a standard room but the beds were lovely and comfortable. Reasonable priced evening meals at the hotel restaurant; wasn’t worth looking for an alternative place for a meal. Would use again, if visiting the area. Thank you for a great stay.

We stayed four nights and found it older but comfortable - nice large, comfortable bed, room and bath bigger than one often finds in older European hotels. There was ample storage space and hanging space for staying longer than a night or two. Furnishings and carpet in our room were in better condition than the hallways and lobby. Amenities were...

We chose this hotel due to the price. The room we had was clean and fairly big a kingside bed and a single. Bed was comfortable and staff were friendly. It is 10minute walk from the city centre, which was ideal, as there is a big car park and no need to pay city prices to park the car. Would... More
