Right on the A2, entrance not very signed. As you need to go through petrol station to access. But no signs before you are on top on turning. Sat nat does not pick it up as off A2. Room very comfortable. Coffee was not re-stocked. At busy times, breakfast times should be registered. Or staff should be monitoring people that... More

Stayed here many a time both on business as well as with family. Still trying to find a problem with the place. The lady at reception when I checked in was very informative - really good information also about the local area. Hotel room was clean and tidy as it should be, with breakfast the next morning offering a very... More

The room was nice enough...not the double i booked (but a twin), i just wish i had skipped breakfast - the hotel was busy, but even so, the hotel should have been prepared. The buffet was laid out in a u-shape, and because it was busy, became a mosh pit of pushing and spilling as people tried to dish their... More

Clean, comfortable hotel, minutes away from Canterbury. Staff was very helpful (especially Anthony!). I hesitated choosing the hotel in that it appeared some distance from downtown, however, the price was very reasonable and we were only spending one night. The breakfast was also surprisingly good, fruit, yogurt, cereals, pastries, eggs and sausages. Despite being on the highway, we did not... More

When you book in at a cheap express hotel you need to have in mind what you are expecting. The one at Harbledown is ideal for Kent University when I'm teaching two days in a row and want somewhere easy and not too expensive. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well equipped, Mae sure you don't get one on the... More

We booked this for a business group midweek stay, somewhat reluctantly as our first choice hotel in Canterbury was not available. To our great relief, we had a very acceptable experience. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the food was good and the staff were helpful. We basically had no problems throughout our stay; no-one even noticed traffic noise from... More

This is a no frills good value hotel. The rooms are clean and have all that is needed for a short stay, the breakfast is good although the choice not extensive, the staff are friendly and efficient. The hotel is located close to Canterbury and in the vicinity of some very nice country pub. Considering the price a very pleasant... More

Quiet, clean, solid and entirely perfect for a couple of nights. The room heated up within 5 mins of us getting into it, the water was soft and great to wash in, plenty towels and everything in good working order. The meals were very average indeed but all the staff were professional, very polite and helpful. This hotel is miles... More

The hotel, staff, cleanliness, were outstanding, and the best value for£42 probably anywhere in the country. The breakfast was excellent, hot food good, and excellent hot chocolate and coffee, and even a free newspaper. Lots of hot water in the room, with good water pressure. Would have liked a couple of real glasses in room instead of the thin plastic... More
