We had a wonderful 4-night stay, with friendly, efficient & helpful staff. The hotel is located in an amazing position - beside the beautiful Cathedral and in the centre of the town and all it has to offer. The hotel was built in the 1460's and of course, was typically old English and so very cute with its narrow &... More

We needed a place to stay in central Canterbury and this one was available for our dates. Easy to find, right next to the gateway into the cathedral close. Very interesting building (totally inaccessible to wheelchair users as it has lots of staircases, but not a problem for us) with lots of facilities including a good lounge and a bar.... More

This hotel is unusual and very charming. It's a very old building with old fashioned beams and nooks and cranny. It is right next door to the Cathedral which looks amazing especially lit up at night. Rooms were spotless and comfortable. The big down side for me was that I didn't realise that I had booked a room with a... More

We recently stayed here for a night during a whistle stop tour of Kent. The room was a great size with the added bonus of a sofa bed (which we made use of). Our room overlooked Burgate which was quite noisy (from delivery trucks, drunk people shouting at 2am etc). It's clearly a previous issue as earplugs were provided. It... More

Do book here! Great location. Lovely old & well preserved building. Great sheets & towels. Good choice at free inclusive continental breakfast. Full English for just £7.95 extra. If you're sensitive to noise, book one of the quieter rooms at the back - with idyllic views of Canterbury cathedral.

Having stayed here on numerous occasions, this time was definitely the best. We stayed in an en-suite room called 'Tranquility' which lived up to it's name, with a well appointed en-suite which had a very powerful shower. Due to the age of the building do not expect any straight lines, even the floors have a jaunty slope, especially in one... More

The hotel is full of charm because it is so old! Great staff who go above and beyond to help you! Convenience is perfect to see the Canterbury Cathedral (next door). I loved Canterbury in general! What a lovely place! It may be my favorite town in all England!

We booked this hotel for our anniversary and we wasn't disappointed. We had the Rooftops room which was just perfect. You could hear all the hussle and bussle from the streets below and the busker singing which we enjoyed. The building has such lovely character and I loved how our room was wonky. The view of the cathedral from the... More

Enjoyed a wonderful weekend stay here. The hotel is very reasonably priced and brilliantly located. The staff are friendly and helpful, but the real highlight is the building itself. Full of character and historic charm, the Cathedral Gate Hotel is a truly beautiful building. So happy we chose to stay here in this brilliant city. Highly recommended.
