After arriving off a plane from Australia we had a pleasant 3 night stay. (2couples) Breakfast was huge and good quality. Convenience to the main High Street was a big plus as well as off street parking. We had a top floor room, quite large and roomy. Although it did not bother us, some people would not like the street... More

We had a nice welcome and were given a spacious, well equipped ensuite room. The whole place looks clean and tidy with light decor. It is very convenient for the city, literally 5 minutes walk. A huge plus is free on site parking in a city where it would otherwise be expensive. A very good choice for breakfast and good... More

Near Canterbury centre and 5/10 mins easy walk to Cathedral area. Location and frontage on side street with locked front door not immediately appealing.... however warm welcome within and a "superior room" was kitted out to a standard that many three (sometimes four) star hotels do not reach but offered at a budget hotel price. English breakfast simple and straightforward.... More

Great location - decent price - nicely renovated - friendly service - free parking - spacious rooms. Only downside: barely warm tomato for breakfast, however very warmly heated staircase and room... so certainly perfect in winter times. In spring/summer you may want to open the window, which is no problem as the area is calm.

Great location, free parking, nice staff. Bed was a tad short for me but the facilities were nice. It is very close to the west gate of the town. It also has a back garden we enjoyed with our son. Breakfast was satisfactory.

This hotel is in a great location, right next to the station and just a 5 minute walk to the edge of the city. The free parking was also great, we could leave our car there from Saturday morning until Sunday afternoon with no problem. The room we had was quite small but nicely furnished. The bed was comfy and... More

A great position just a few minutes walk from the Westgate, free parking on site and a very nice room. Comfortable beds a lovely little shower room and nicely appointed throughout. Now to breakfast: Poor watery scrambled eggs, cheap catering sausage barely warm tomato and bendy toast. Coffee was good though.

Shortly after arriving in my room I fortunately checked the bed for comfort. The mattress springs were very noisy. I alerted the manager who called the owner. She apologised and said she would find me another b&b as they had no other rooms available. Then when I asked for a refund a couple of days later, she refused, saying there... More

A very warm welcome. Room not large but very clean, comfortable bed, and everything worked. Breakfast fine, location very good and (free) car parking a big plus for us. On the negative side, not good to have to vacate the premises from 10.30 - 13.00 on a daily basis, especially if the weather's bad. No lounge or sitting area other... More
