The problem with good properties is that by the time you stay there because you picked it from TA there is very little that remains to be said. The lodge at Canterbury Cathedral is just such a place. Rooms a lovely and how can you complain when you pull the curtains back and you have such a great view (see images). The precinct is closed at night but you have a security pass and there is 24 hour access if you need it. The breakfast is served in the Refectory dining room and offered plenty of choices. This is a great place to base yourself for a few days around Canterbury. Onsite parking is available for 5 pounds/day which is ridiculously cheap by UK standards. You also get unlimited admission to the Cathedral included in your package. We made use of this bonus and visited straight after breakfast, it's a rare treat to be in such a building with so few people. The staff are very helpful and friendly and that is everyone you meet not just the reception staff the security / car parking guys were great. As someone else mentioned if you are parking on site the entrance is well hidden it's in Burgate Street and is an alley on the right hand side between a pub and a building with a red cross on it. That was what we were told and it's spot on ! (Good luck finding it :)
