normally stay in the hotel chains when in Canterbury. They are efficient, easy to book modern and offer a competitive price. I have been interested in staying at charming old Tudor bnb, but never really had the chance too. This particular trip, I had to extend my stay the hotel I'm staying couldnt accommodate me. I had a walk around... More

Got accused as we walked in, from the hotel manager for flooding which was not our fault, the manger is unprofessional. so if you want to go to a hotel which blame the customer for faulty system problem then this hotel will be the best for you

Well, maybe I should have realised that it would be a bad idea staying there after having made the booking via phone, I wasn’t really convinced that the booking was done. E-mailed them to have an e-mail confirmation from the hotel, no reply. Called them, no answer. After several e-mails and phone calls I got through to them saying that... More

Terrible, do not book this hotel. £155 for one night in a tiny room which doesn't remotely resemble the pictures. Tv doesn't work, wifi doesn't work well in room. Was greeted by someone who spoke no English and every query/question I had, got defensive and told me to wait for over an hour for the problem to be dealt with... More

Had a wonderful night in the heart of Canterbury, gloriously comfy four poster bed and jacuzzi in bathroom... Friendly, helpful staff made a pleasant stay. Would highly recommend although a trade off to the outstanding location is that it can get busy at night.

The hotel was very sweet and the staff were friendly, however it was not worth the price we paid. The room was clean, but very small in comparison to the photos shown. The shower was broken and the toilet was very noisy and we not able to leave our bags there whilst we went out in the day after we... More

Lovely oldie world hotel. You have to ring the bell on arrival but the door is opened quickly and we were shown to a lovely room very clean. A few minor issues such as broken flush which we mended and water coming through the ceiling in the morning! However we had a lovely breakfast inc vegetarian and good hosts. Not... More

Fantastic quaint little place with lots of lovely character and historic relevance. Not particularly cheap but you're right in the heart of Canterbury and all things considered the price is reasonable. Owners were lovely, rooms were adorable and had a great breakfast thrown in the top it off. Loved Canterbury and loved the Sun Hotel and Tea Rooms. Thanks for... More

We stayed for two nights in the Dickens room, and generally enjoyed it. The room is definitely spacious enough, with a separate en-suite toilet and en-suite shower room. Everything was clean, and when we discovered that the kettle in the room didn't work, they happily provided us with a replacement - which was evidently a brand new kettle. The building... More
