Arrived Sunday lunch time to a very warm welcome. Parked the car ( Free! ) in their spacious and lovely garden. The house in just outside to out town by the wonderful west gates.
We shown around the hotel and all the facilities and given access to our rooms very early.
Everything was very friendly and beautifully clean.
This is a very ancient house and our room was a bit cramped but was made up for by the service with a smile and chat.
The bar was run on an honesty box ( and the prices were very reasonable )
On the day of departure we were able to leave the car in the car park until we finished our visit to the museums of Canterbury
The only comment I would have is that the décor was a bit eccentric to say the least. It is an historic house and I felt that some restrained neutral colours and traditional furnishings would have enhanced its beauty more than a changing rooms themed approach. Still we had a wonderful stay and thanks to all at the hotel.
Breakfast was wonderful
