This place is architecturally beautiful, standing in the Cathedral close, and extremely convenient for everything in the town. The staff are literally the most pleasant and helpful I've encountered in 35 years of travel. Looking out to the cathedral on a sunny morning with the prospect of an excellent breakfast ahead of you is one of the great pleasures of a visit to Canterbury.
Only downside (and it's a very minor one) is that it was originally built as a study centre for the Cathedral, and therefore the bathrooms, although immaculate, have very small shower cubicles, and the water fluctuates between hot and cold in a rather disturbing way! Don' let this put you off, it's a delightful place. Not the cheapest but well worth it.
If you want parking, book it well in advance, as the amount of parking within the precincts of the cathedral is limited.
