Stayed here in Canterbury for one night as we were meeting up with friends. Wow, what a wonderful location, safe, central and competitively priced. The hotel is in the grounds of the cathedral and free entry and car parking are included in the cost of the room. Our room was cool with opening windows, considering the hot temperatures. The bed...

Stayed for one night and wow what a unique place. Room was lovely with views of the Cathedral. Breakfast was amazing, everything you could want, both cold buffet and cooked to order. It was lovely to wander around the cathedral grounds when it was closed to the public. Really special place to spend a night and hope to return later... More

Visited the cathedral lodge at the end of June for a wedding reception. Plenty of choices and wonderfully presented. Beautiful grounds and building. Food at the reception was lovely. Historic location with a modern twist in the building. Obviously cannot comment on the prices as I was only a guest, however was a lovely venue for the reception.

The location is really the thing – right at the side of the Cathedral. This gives for lovely atmosphere, particularly in the gorgeous garden which looks right into the Cathedral. Rooms fine - modern but unremarkable and a good breakfast. But stay here just to be able walk into the Cathedral and round the precincts at any time you choose... More

The hotel is right in the cathedral precincts, it has everything in the room you would need, tea, coffee and even an iron. We stayed in room 210, beautiful room with a fantastic view of the cathedral. We paid to park within the grounds - great facility and we recommend you do this.

Fantastic position within the grounds of Canterbury Cathedral. Welcome was friendly and check in smooth and informative. Including details of local restaurant discounts, free Cathedral access and service times. We booked 2 double rooms on a weekend when they ended up being full.

Canterbury Cathedral Lodge is a modern hotel and conference centre in the cathedral precincts, offering bed and breakfast accommodation (we didn't check on lunch, but they do not offer dinner in the evenings, though they have negotiated 10% discounts with a range of eating places in the town.

It took us quite a while to find this hotel as it is hidden behind the shops in the cathedral compound. We were extremely fortunate to find a parking space, and with hindsight, I would phone the hotel as they could then explain how to find it and also where to park. Our room was in the annexe and was... More
