Fantastic rooms. Really novel mix of old and new in the common areas. Stylish modern interior mixed with relaxing lounges that are more like a gentlemens' club. Roaring fire in the main bar welcomed us on a cold January day.
A tasty (complimentary) tuck box with posh snacks boded well on the food front but we were really disappointed by the breakfast in bed. Invest in some toast racks ! There was nice fruit and yoghurt but we also got a few slices of flabby white toast in a basket covered in a napkin. Soggy by the time it got to the room. Kellogg's mini cereal Rice Krispies were not what we expected either given the style of the hotel and the tone that had been set by the tuck box
Room service breakfast aside, a great place for a treat weekend in Canterbury. Staff extremely helpful.
