This is advertised as a hotl but seemed to us to be a b'and'b. Whatever, it was excellent. Terrific location, about 100 metres from central Canterbury and opposite the ruins of Canterbury Castle.
Also, right on a main roundabout giving immediate access from London and Dover. however,there is no noise in the room, with the windows double-glazed.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Our room was impeccable and thoroughly renovated with only the unevenness of the floor reminding us of the age of the building. Onsite parking is adequate. The dining room and the breakfast were both excellent.
