Despite living in Kent, I had never been to Canterbury until I treated my girlfriend for her birthday as she's aways wanted to go to the Cathedral. Though the price of the rooms may be a little pricey, you certainly get what you paid for!
We got room 214 which looks out to the Cathedral, though I'm not sure if every room or most rooms do the same. The view was amazing and as it's summer, the fact that it stays light for later means you get to enjoy the wonderful view for even longer.
The staff are all very friendly and guests are free to look in the library and take an apple from the front reception. The bedroom was pristine and the beds are so comfy!
Breakfast the following morning was delightful as well. They have cute little jam jars, the butter is made pretty, you get teapots for hot chocolate, fresh apple juice, various selection of cereals and/or cooked breakfasts. Again, all the staff were lovely and friendly.
If I was to find any sort of fault with this place it would be that the shower is a bit small and for some reason the water went cold for a brief second on a few occasions. But that really is very minor as both my girlfriend & I enjoyed our little stay and wouldn't hesitate to go back!
