We stayed overnight as a birthday treat, along with a trip to the Marlowe. Room was lovely, big freestanding bath, super size shower, super king size bed, super luxurious. Prices, but worth it! Would highly recommend and we will definitely return.

Only stayed for 1 night, staff were friendly when booking in. Room not as good as photo. Air con did not work, toilet seat loose and dangerous, flannel stained before use, and coffee marks down the wall. When booking out, no one asked if we enjoyed our stay. Not overly impressed. Have stayed in better hotels, with better service and... More

I absolutely loved staying here. They took such great care of us. Lovely to get away even if we are just from down the road! The cocktails in the bar were out of this world and the food was top end! Best location of any hotel in the city!

We stayed here as part of a wedding trip. The hotel had another wedding party staying and were clearly busy. Check in was friendly and the staff tried to do their best with early check ins. The rooms are standard but nothing special. Avoid the rooms overlooking the High St at the weekends as there is a lot of noise... More

Abode hotel is in the city centre, step out into historic Canterbury. The one night stay was relaxing, comfortable and the food was excellent. We had a gorgeous room, just wished our stay was longer. The restaurant was a wonderful experience, we both had the tasting menu, a great way to explore the menu.

The service at the hotel is very good. The staff is very helpful and polite. I stayed at the hotel for a week without any problems. A very pleasant and relaxing stay at the hotel. I wish I could stay for longer. The only thing I would recommend is to reconsider their prices. Otherwise, Thank you for the excellent service!

We are very likely to stay here again, the location is perfect. Meal in the restaurant was faultless however the hot breakfast was very disappointing.in hindsight we should have addressed this issue at the time but the staff were very busy trying to serve everyone, the food left on the plate would have said it all !!

We had a two night stay in the City, and chose Abode because of its central location and 2 AA Rosette restaurant. You literally step out of the foyer and straight into the High Street, with an abundance of restaurants, pubs and shops on the doorstep. The Cathedral is only a 5 minute walk away. Our room was smart, modern,... More

My partner and I stayed here for his birthday. We had been here before, only for cocktails in the bar, but it seemed really lovely. Our room when we arrived didn't disappoint- it was fab! A lovely size, beautifully decorated, and with nice views out over the high street and the lovely old library building opposite. On my request, the... More
