Staff, location and quality of rooms were excellent. Unfortunately, the fire alarm was set off at midnight on our first night by revellers (Students) in the adjacent Tavern bar. I would definitely stay again, but would avoid freshers week.

The main gripes are as follows: 1.The kingsized bed was two singles shoved together and was one of the most... More

Superb room, very clean, modern and comfortable with air conditioning. Very good room service. Brilliant location right in the centre of Canterbury which is largely pedestrianised for much of the day making for a very pleasant environment in which to wonder around and take in the historical setting and the inevitable shops and cafes - very relaxing.

A lovely relaxing break in a most comfortable and friendly environment. The hotel is so close to the center of Canterbury that we were able to enjoy this wonderful city without having to walk far. The food was delicious,the room very comfortable, and the staff friendly and helpful.
