We spent two nights at the Ebury prior to our cruise which started in Dover. We took the train from St. Pancras station in London and the hotel was a short taxi ride from the train station. The hotel was originally two adjoining mansions built by two brothers in the 1800s. Although our room was small, it was very comfortable and was what we expected.....kind of like staying at a well do to grandma's home. We had a room at the back which may have accounted for the lack of noise in the room. It is on a main road and there might be road noise in front facing rooms. It was about a 10 minute walk into Canterbury town center. Breakfast was included with our room rate and although it wasn't anything fancy, it was good. We also ate dinner in the dining room and it was excellent. We would have eaten there the second night but it is closed on Sundays so we had to eat in town. The owners and other staff were very helpful and friendly. This is a great place to stay for those cruising to or from Canterbury. It was about a 20 minute taxi ride to Dover. We spent one day touring Canterbury and the other day we used Dover Tours to drive us to Deal, Sandwich, a White Cliffs harbor boat ride, Dover Castle, an outlook above the Paris tunnel train and then back to the Ebury. This hotel is charming and a perfect home base for a trip to Canterbury.
