Canterbury is a...

Recently returned from a two night business stay. On arrival check in was fast, the receptionist provided little information about the hotel and was very serious. The room on the second floor was small with a single bed, desk, television and chair / table. The room was very hot at times but the air conditioning unit was efficient. Room was...

This hotel is excellent in every way. All the staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The hotel is spotlessly clean, and all the facilities operate perfectly. The food is superb, and overall the hotel offers excellent value for money.

We used this venue for a work meeting as it fitted our bill in terms of location, parking, quality and the facilities it offered. The meeting room was great, light, airey and a great view of the hotel lawn, which most of the attendees commented on, and also probably helped relax them for the presentations ahead! ! The staff were...

Hotel is quite eccentric, lots of quirky corridors and rooms. The whole building is quirky which I liked. Easy walking into town centre. We had an evening meal, which was good although the kitchen was being refurbished and there was not a great choice. The hotel is undergoing major refurbishment but this did not disturb our stay. This is also...
