recently stayed here for some cultural and retail therapy with my sister . Arrived a bit early so couldn't check into the room but receptionist kindly let us put our cases in the locked store room so we could go for a look around. Was quite hard to explain that we had booked for 1 night then changed our mind and had added an extra night so had 2 separate bookings and we had been told over the phone that we could stay in the same room . Was told that we would have to check out in the morning and then check back in which seemed a bit strange. We did eventually get it sorted out but wasn't easy. Also heard another guest asking where he could locate a doctor as his wife was unwell but receptionist didn't have a clue and said she could get him a taxi , when we went out there was actually a red cross surgery just round the corner. Hotel itself is very well located for visiting Canterburys beautiful Cathedral and other historical buildings .The room was spotlessly clean and the housekeepers were very friendly and helpful. The staff in the restaurant were also brilliant , very friendly and the service was excellent., food was lovely. All in all we had a great visit the only comment I would make is that the reception wasn't open all the time and we found it a bit difficult to explain circumstances to receptionist.
