We stayed here for 1 week this past week for a business trip. It was a wonderful stay. All of the rooms are nice. The best room is the Garden Room, followed by room 6. We had to switch rooms for a while due to a miscalculation on our part, but room 3 was nice as well. Breakfast was always hot and ready on time. I would recommend if you are American be aware that traditional English breakfast means just that. I loved both the English breakfast and the continental. The scrambled eggs and smoked salmon are for the adventurous types. If you are sort of the typical American traveler, just stick with the croissants...which are freshly baked and buttered. The tea and hot porridge was wonderful. If you order mushrooms and tomatoes be aware to ask for just 1 of each because they are quite large and very filling.
The hotel is right around the corner from high street which is the main center of town. On high street you can get to the cathedral and all of the restaurants. There are plenty of nice cabs that can also take you around the city and to the Canterbury west train station. Be aware that the Train Station is also just a short walk away from the Magnolia House.
Isabelle the manager and cook was wonderful. Penney is the maid and was terrific as well. Isabelle's son is a wonderful young man and a delight to chat with. This is the best place to stay when visiting Canterbury.
