4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Clean room, lovely staff, delicious breakfast and incredible iconic location to base a Cathedral and wider Canterbury visit, with almost private access at night. My only complaint would be that the bed was, for me, way too hard, and the pillows and duvet were very basic, leading to a bit of broken sleep. Feather pillows may be available on request,... More

You can't get a much better location than this! The hotel is set within the Cathedral grounds and the price you pay includes entry to the Cathedral which is an added bonus. It's a beautiful place. Staff were all really friendly - everyone we spoke to was really nice - the lady we rang for parking advice before we got... More

I hope whomever came up with the idea of letting "pilgrims" who come to visit Canterbury Cathedral stay on the grounds got a big reward because that person is a genius. The rooms were spotless, beds were comfy, the view from our window was priceless, reception was friendly and helpful, breakfast was delicious, overnight parking was convenient. They really have...

From the moment we entered the lobby and all the way to the end of our four day stay the staff was attentive and cordial. The only minor snafu was the wifi wasn't working. I called down to the desk and forthwith (maybe fifthwith) they were there to fix the problem. You can have either a full English breakfast or... More

One night stay at this wonderful hotel. Location is everything they say and this proves the point. Set within the precincts of the Cathedral, The rooms were well appointed and the staff were welcoming and helpful. Although the lodge doesn't do evening meals they have a list of restaurants that they have arranged discounts for guests, also plenty of choice... More

Overnight (Sunday) stop over. What a brilliant place set in the grounds on Canterbury Cathedral. Rooms overlook the Cathedral and its grounds. We visited on a Sunday when there is a very good combined room/meal deal. Food was excellent both in the evening and breakfast. Caution if travelling by car ensure you have detailed directions as it is easy to... More

Beautiful lodge in cathedral grounds. Checking in early was no problem. Good nearby parking. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Views of the cathedral from the bedroom window were spectacular. Our room was lovely and just what we wanted. Comfortable overnight stay but be advised there's no lie in on a Sunday morning as you are right next to the... More

Beautiful place. Lovely staff. Gorgeous rooms. Parking. Excellent breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble. Cannot recommend highly enough. Even lent me a charger. Just perfect place. Don't think of booking elsewhere because nowhere is better.

I have checked in rather late into the this lovely hotel on the Cathedral grounds. The reception stayed up for me and the person on duty ensured I was safely deposited in my room and then made me a simple dinner (tea, followed by ham and cheese sandwiches, a glass of wine, and some pudding!) [THANK YOU TOM]. The hotel... More

This hotel is excellent. The staff are friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. The room was luxurious, clean and in very good repair. We had a disabled room which was ground floor with a wonderful en suite wetroom. The breakfast is a mixture of cold buffet and hot dishes selected from a menu - there was all you could eat and...
