An excellent two night say in lovely Canterbury. A proper hotel, wonderful staff and really close to the city centre. Very good buffet breakfast, nothing too much trouble. Highly recommended and worth the extra you pay compared to Premier Inn or Travel Lodge.

First impressions, a bit old fashioned. The staff are attentive and cheerful The standard bedroon much bigger than expected. Plus points, are lack of traffic noise, allowing the window to be wide open at night. There is A/C, but it was not needed. Breakfast was very good, lovely bacon and sausages. Would I stay again, yes if I can get... More

The hotel is in quiet grounds and walking distance from the city. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The room was spacious and comfortable. We did not eat in as there is so much choice in the city. The parking and wifi are free.
