Travelers' Choice
Castle House Hotel is located five minutes from Canterbury High Street and is built astride the ancient city walls of Canterbury and standing in the shadow of Henry II's Great Keep itself - reputedly the third largest in the Kingdom . This unique building is your choice for a bed and breakfast experience, steeped in history. Castle House Hotel is an architectural gem and a scheduled ancient monument. The main house was built in the 1730s, incorporating part of the Norman city walls, the Roman Worthgate, and the only visible remaining section of the original city moat, now of course drained of water. Here, surrounded by Georgian opulence and decoration of the highest standard, you are just a few minutes' short walk from the whole of the mediaeval city: the magnificent Cathedral; the maze of winding streets and the romantic ruins of the Castle and city walls... Book your room at Castle House Hotel and history and convenience will combine to make your stay both memorable and enjoyable. All our rooms have been decorated to the highest standards, benefit from en suite or private facilities, and provide you with every modern comfort from contemporary flat screen digital TV to high speed wireless broadband at no extra cost.

We booked this hotel on March 7 for a holiday end of May (with free cancellation option). On March 20 they send us the message that they were unable to accomodate the reservation (because of COVID-19) and we could cancel our reservation or rebook to a different hotel. We responded that we wanted to cancel the reserveation, but the emails bounced back. Also the phone number was no longer reachable. Untill now we still did not receive our deposit back.

The staff went out of the way to help me with all my requests. Perhaps the best customer service I have experienced in the UK. The room was spacious and reminded me of home. This stay was home away from home. It is conveniently located and a short walk to town. The breakfast spread was excellent. They cater to people with dietary restrictions.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights. Our room was comfortable but needs some attention and updating. The staff were pleasant and the breakfast was basic but reasonably tasty. The location is excellent and the car park is very convenient. Our first night was ruined by noisy American guest who seem to be holding a conference after midnight in the hall but that's not the hotels fault.

We only stayed one night out of three as unfortunately my partner broke her arm in a fall the second morning and we had to head home for medical treatment later. The room was OK and quiet enough and the breakfast quite reasonable (and parking freely available), but when we had to cancel we were told that the refund for the remaining nights would have to go through Booking.com. Contact with the latter proved that this was not correct and the Castle House should have refunded for the lost nights immediately. Booking.com subsequently attempted to get the refund and apparently met some resistance though this was eventually forthcoming. These are the facts as they occured; I don't offer an opinion on that.
