“Overall good stay was marred”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

My husband and I were in Canterbury for a weekend's sporting event. Room was excellent for a small junior double. Very clean, well appointed, comfortable, excellent shower and lovely view over back garden. Breakfast was fine (we only had cereals/toast). Could be improved if porridge and thick sliced granary toast was offered. Our experience was marred however as we returned to our room after a short breakfast on check-out day to find a lady had let her self in our room to change the bedding! All our bags were around with items we hadn't packed (this was 0915 and we weren't checking out until 10am). I do not feel it is proper to enter the room to change bedding before we had checked out. Also note that there are only 4 parking spaces. We could park in the GP surgery next door as it was a weekend but weekday visitors may be unlucky with parking and roadside parking is 4 hours max during the day.

Me and my boyfriend booked the junior standard suite to stay in Canterbury (our university town) over the Jubilee weekend. We booked at the Yorke lodge as it was one of the cheaper rooms that was close to the city centre - our room being cheaper than the travelodge.
When we arrived - we had such a lovely surprise - I was unaware that the B&B was a 5 star AA one - the rooms were beautifully decorated - the ensuite had all brand new shower, sink and toilet. Though we had booked to smallest and cheapest room - there was no expense spared with the lovely decor - the bed was big and tall and very comfortable - there were enough pillows - usually a rarity in cheaper hotels. The breakfast was delicious and the lady running the hotel was very warm and friendly.
The hotel's website really lets it down - we weren't expecting much after visiting thewebsite but its so much nicer.

Pleasant stay but needs to be clearer on pricing policy. I was quoted a price for family room which I understood was the total price as I had confirmed there were 2 children - there was no mention of extra £15 per night per child then. On booking out I was charged extra £30 per night. So just a warning to other guests - confirm your price by email.

We stayed three nights at the Yorke Lodge B&B and were really impressed with the whole ambience of the place. We stayed in room 2, on the first floor, at the back of the house, overlooking the garden with a magnificent magnolia tree in full bloom. The room was very spacious and well appointed, as was the en-suite bathroom, which included bathrobes. A nice selection of fruit and creals for breakfast before tucking into a hearty full english. Management and staff were really friendly and made you feel right at home. The Lodge is only a few minutes walk from the town centre, through the west gate, with it's lovely gardens. The town iteslf was buzzing with students and tourists and more eating places than I have ever seen. No matter what your taste in food, you'll find it here. Our favourite was Cafe des Amis, just outside the entrance to the west gate, which serves Mexican/Spanish fare. All in all we had a wonderful time and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the house will be quieter, as the front of the house is on a main road.

Last weekend my Mum and I stayed here, as we wished to visit family in the area. It was such a convenient spot for everything in the City, without requiring the car. The owner was charming and very welcoming. The guest house was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. We had a lovely bedroom which had every facility and was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was delicious too. Would not hesitate to return.

Just returned home from a stay at this fantastic B and B. I can't recommend it enough - spotlessly clean, felt instantly welcome, the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable.

The room was recently decorated to a high standard and there were some nice touches eg dressing gowns, shampoo, conditioner, bottled water in our room with a large selection of different tea bags, hot chocolate and coffee.

Free wi-fi was available and free parking also.

We had breakfast in the conservatory - a selection of cereals, followed by a full English breakfast and homemade marmalade.

It was an approx 10 minute walk into the centre of Canterbury.

My husband booked Yorke Lodge B&B online after doing a quich search on the internet; on arrival we received a warm welcome; the B&B is very handy for the city centre and train station (only 10-15 min walk). The room was lovely with excellent facilities. Beds were comfortable and the room was warm and cosy. Bathroom was spotless and plenty of shower gel/soaps and good supply of clean towels. Breakfast was great with options for vegetarians, I was offered veggie sausages which was a real treat! All in all a lovely B&B and we'll definately be visiting again. Canterbury is a beautiful city and the Yorke Lodge is an ideal base.
