I stayed at the Canterbury Hotel with my family for 4 nights. The staff is extremely friendly and customer service oriented with the willingness to go the extra mile. The rooms were comfortable and neat. Morning breakfast was wholesome and delicious. Definitely worth considering for a short stay in Canterbury.

Well situated hotel, 15 min walk to the Cathedral. Friendly staff. Breakfast was ok. Very small parking. Nice courtyard. We travel with a little dog. Our stay was comfortable.

Canterbury East station is a five minute walk away, with Canterbury West a further fifteen minutes away. My room was a decent size with a... More
