“Wonderful friendly service”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

A friend and I arranged a joint birthday party at Howfield and we had a fantastic time. This was due in no small part to the excellent service we received from Hayley and the team with all staff being very friendly and providing a superb service throughout. The evening buffet food was really tasty and the drinks prices were very reasonable. Breakfast was also first class. We had comments afterwards from friends about how good the service was which was really pleasing as it showed how much they enjoyed themselves.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 1 which was spacious and quiet

This hotel is really good value for money, extremely accommodating (we have a baby and a toddler so we were rather demanding!) and is really quite nice.

It's not luxury but at these prices I'm not complaining.

Overall, a fantastic 3-star hotel and would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Go for dinner at The Artichoke only 2 mins away in the car. Great pub grub with a roaring fire.

The place is superb. And would still be at double the price: it's amazingly inexpensive.

Character, comfort, calm, good food (offering both "bar" and "restaurant" menus - from the same kitchen - is a smart way of catering for every budget).
Rooms are spacious, well-equipped (four poster bed anyone?), public areas full of old character features. Tasty, freshly-cooked brakfasts.
The staff are really excellent and thoughtful.

I can't imagine why anyone would stay anywhere else at Canterbury - or at the channel ports if you are en route to/from there, it's only a minute off the fast road. I certainly won't again.

Room Tip: all the rooms seemed nice: ask on arrival if you might have a four-poster one.

We have just returned from an overnight stay and we cannot praise the staff enough for their friendliness and willingness to please.; they all made us feel so welcome.The room was spacious with a lovely view over the garden and very comfortable. The Sunday Lunch was one of the best we have ever had, with the freshness of the food and presentation top class. Breakfast was just as good with plenty of choice and beautifully cooked. After a lovely stay we hope to return again in the future.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the garden are very quiet.

A great 2 night stay. Very friendly staff, excellent fresh, local ingredients very well cooked and presented. Very comfy bed and not disturbed by any noise. Although wifi advertised as available throughout, only possible to access above reception but we visited for a break, not business, so no problem for us.
First hotel I have stayed in where there was a teapot on the hospitality tray. For me a great bonus! Nice to have free in room safe and fridge as well.
Park and ride for Canterbury only 1 mile away.
Give it a try. You won't be disappointed

My partner and I stayed here for one night in November- we were taken by the receptionist to our room (17) which was a lovely personal touch. Large bed and TV, the room was decorated nicely and had good views. We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel. Breakfast was included in our room price, it was fantastic value for money and a large range of options. We both went for scrambled egg and salmon, it was fresh and nicely presented. At first we thought dinner was a bit overpriced but once we tasted the food, it was great value. All three courses were fab. Would definitely stay here again

We stayed here on the way to Dover so that we did not have to have too early a start for our Ferry the next morning. I only booked it the night before via late rooms and so got a really good deal. £69 for two of us in a 4 poster bed room with breakfast included.
As we had arrived quite late we decided to have dinner in the restaurant. We were greeted by a very charming man named Eduard who took us to a nice lounge area so that we could have a drink before our meal. The meal was very good. For starter I had a tower of avocado, salad and prawns and it was very tasty. My fiancée had the fish cake with chorizo and that too was beautifully served and delicious. For the main course I had the ribeye and my fiancée had chicken stuffed with brie and wrapped in bacon. The presentation of both starters and main course was excellent. I would have liked to have seen the desserts but we were just too full!
The room was spacious and the bed was huge. The next morning we had a lovely cooked breakfast. The hotel was only 5 mins in the car from Canterbury, as we drove there to get some bits before we drove to Dover which is only 30 mins away.
Will definitely stay at this hotel again for an overnight stay on the way to get a ferry and will also look to come for a weekend as I would like to have more time to look at Canterbury and so this place would be ideal.
