We stayed here overnight with family visiting from the US. The lodge is actually inside the grounds of the cathedral. Each of our 3 rooms had a view of the cathedral (although upstairs was better than the ground floor). This place is all about the location. It was magical to be able to wander the cathedral grounds at night, after... More

Every member of staff are friendly and polite and very helpful. Breakfast was v nice and the coffee was excellent. A really calm place to stay. My only negative is that the walls in the rooms are thin and therefore I could hear people speaking quite clearly next door. I would stay again.

Stayed here overnight on a visit to canterbury from Norway. Friendly efficient check in and a very nice comfortable room with tea making facilities. Wonderful view of the cathedral all light up in the evening. Breakfast was excellent with a varied menu. Will be back and would highly recommend.

I have just returned home from our son's wedding. The reception was held at the Lodge and many of our guests had rooms for the night. My first and lasting impression was of outstanding service; the reception staff were professional and extremely kind, nothing was too much trouble for them. The staff that served at dinner were very efficient and... More

Stayed in the main hotel. Room rather small also the width of the double bed was less than expected ! and the shower was certainly only for one, Staff very helpful. Breakfast top notch and hot food cooked to order.

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.
