The Travelodge was right on the edge of town and perfect for sight seeing and eating in restaurants. It was, as most are, very basic, and felt a bit like a Youth Hostel, but for what we paid, it was sufficient.

The location of the hotel was perfect, the city centre was a short stroll away with all the shops and amenities pubs etc. We stayed for three nights and the beds were comfortable, the shower was very hot and powerful good value for money

Stayed here Wednesday the 17th August 2016, Great location just outside the old city walls of Canterbury. Free parking ( always a bonus) got the room for £60 through booking.com but could not use my defence discount card, tried to use it at reception when we checked in but was told Travelodge don't take it although i have used it...

Good location. Car park way too small so had to park on a side street. However the real problem is the state of the decor. Carpets in communal areas are threadbare. The room we stayed in was clean but had a shower that was way past its best.

We stayed here for a couple of nights so we could explore Canterbury. We parked the car in the car park on arrival and it didn't move for two days as we explored everywhere on foot, great for having a couple of beers with dinner in one of the may restaurants on offer. The Travelodge itself was budget-range but clean... More

Nice rooms. Adequate for our purpose (one night stay) and budget. Staff were helpful in resolving a minor bedding issue. Rooms were clean and the location of the hotel was close to major shopping and bus services.

Our room (202) was small, no tiny would be a better description. The hotel needs a massive re-decoration job- carpets frayed, doors and walls chipped - just felt unloved. However the position just off the centre is great - parking however not so good- small car park. Water pressure in the shower was barely adequate. And it wasn't cheap! Cost... More

Thank you very much for submitting your review. Detailed feedback like yours is very important to us and we have passed your comments onto the hotel manager as cleanliness and room service are the basics of our promise to our customers and this is far from the high standards we strive to provide. Please accept our sincerest apologies and we... More

Very centrally situated, only a few minutes from the famous cathedral and Restaurants/ Shopping Mall. The Hotel itself is in a quiet side-street. The creaking floor is to be expected in such a nice old building (but could be difficult for people with sleeping problems). Helpful stuff and clean standard!
