Arrival and registration was smooth and friendly. We were given a brief tour of the dining arrangements for breakfast, then shown to our room. Perfectly sized room, close to town, but just outside the congestion and traffic downtown! Large, off-street parking lot with easy, safe egress. The restaurant/pub had a balanced menu of fish, fowl and beef/lamb. We chose the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights to attend a wedding. The location is excellent being just outside Canterbury. The room was very pleasant with adequate amenities, continental breakfast was included in the price so overall very good value for money. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Would recommend for those on a budget and ideal for a visit to the... More

Travelling by car this hotel is placed within easy reach of the M2 and has a bus stop close by across the road for frequent bus service into Canterbury. Alternatively there is Park and Ride next door to the hotel. The staff were very good, as were the meals. The room was clean and spacious with a comfortable bed. Our... More

We were attending a wedding at Winter Barn, when booking asked if this was close to the venue, we were told it was a 5 minute walk but it wasn't. It was a £10 taxi ride. But our twin room was adequate for 1 night. Luckily we were allowed into the room at mid- day, check in normally is 3pm.

We stayed here before travelling from Dover to Calais staying in room 3. We were initially quite impressed considering the price paid as it was a big clean room (if a little tired) and the staff were very welcoming and friendly... However we both had a terrible nights sleep. The room was very hot and we couldn't open a window... More

Very nice and friendly staff, nice room, unfortunately a bit noisy as it was in front of the main road (lots of traffic), but good experience overall. I would stay there again if I needed to go back to Canterbury.

We booked this hotel on Christmas Day for a 2 day stay commencing the following day so wondered whether we had been a bit hasty but it turned out to be an excellent choice. The location was very convenient - just off the A2 and a couple of minutes walk from the Park and Ride bus station from which you... More

Stayed here for 1 night with my husband and 2 children and sorry to say it was very disappointing. The inn could be so much better. We had a family room and although spacious unfortunately we didn't have a very comfortable stay due to the mattresses on both the double bed and pull out sofa being awful. You could literally...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Of all the hotels in Canterbury, few have as many stories to tell as this historic lodge, which has been providing a warm welcome to travellers for almost three centuries.With nine comfy rooms and its own cosy pub serving a menu of hearty, freshly cooked food, it's the perfect place to enjoy some rest and relaxation. Although there's so much to see and do you won't want to put your feet up for too long.Canterbury is one of England's most beautiful cities, and its jewel in the crown is Canterbury Cathedral, which is a pleasant half-hour stroll from the lodge, or just five minutes by car. You can also explore the intriguing shops of King's Mile, take a ghost tour, visit Canterbury University or take a summer boat-trip along the River Stour.There's plenty to keep you busy further afield in Kent, like wildlife spotting in Blean Woods or a day at the seaside in Herne Bay or Whitstable. ... more   less
