    It was lovely to stay in a small inn-style hotel with a history - gave the place character. No complaints on comfort or services. Great location and pretty good value for money. Breakfast nice.

    Very nice staff exelent hotel in the centre of canterburry near the cathedral en main street.

  • Single
    8.2

    Excellent central location very convenient for everything in town. Reasonably quiet, being in the pedestrian zone, so no traffic noise. Very good full English breakfast. Staff were polite and helpful. Second floor room small but comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

    Steep narrow stairs and no lift - not suitable for anyone with reduced mobility. Breakfast service didn't start till 8 a.m. and was a bit slow on one day. Off-site parking for an extra £5 per day.

    Good breakfast, nice staff. Close to shopping and cathedral attractions.

    Due to a mixup by the booking staff, we were awakened at midnight by another guest who had been issued the key to our room. We screamed. He screamed. He darted down the stairs to report the error. The next day we had to move to a different room which was tiny. There was no way to close the bathroom door once you were inside unless you stepped over into the bathtub. Tiny single beds, like a child's cot.

    I was in Canterbury with my daughter to attend a concert in the Cathedral. This was our first visit to Canterbury and the hotel is in a good location for shops and sightseeing. The food and service was excellent.

    I found the staff friendly & very helpful. The room was comfortable & clean & quiet. This was my second stay and I will definitely go again.

    We would have liked a hair drier in the room, but will remeber to bring one next time.

    Upgraded room to a beautiful family room for no extra cost. Marvellous skyline of the Cathedral too. Not at all noisy considering the close proximity to the High Street

    loved the location, useful parking voucher and lovely breakfast.

    Lovely room apart from the bathroom which was very tight and uncomfortable, especially the toilet so near the wall could hardly seat on it and hard to lie in the bath without bashing your head on the sink.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Location, central to all that Canterbury has to offer.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    friendly and location, lovely old building

    not really a complaint but does need a bit of love and attention given to decoration, looking a bit tired.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Convenient distance from the city centre and its facilities

    Minor details not always met, E.G. no face flannel provided with the towels.

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    Access to the city centre and all the facilities round about

    The decor and the hotel generally looked in need of an update. There was no lounge facility. The dining area was not particularly well laid out for breakfast and the cleanliness of the cutlery and crockery was not brilliant.

  • Group of friends

    Location

    Rooms were very small and hanging space totally inadequate.shaving light did not work and I had to ask twice before it was repaired.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    this hotel is in a very good location for the cathedral and shops,and a short walk to the bus station to visit other near by towns.the hotel staff are very helpful and friendly ,we always had a good breakfast , and we had two evening meals there which were really filling.

    our room was rather small, although the four poster bed took most of it up, it was very hot and stuffy,we had difficulty in opening the windows for air and had to shut them at night due to noisy revellers going past our room from about midnight until 2 in the morning, we did have a fan which we constantly had to use. i would suggest anyone booking this hotel to try for a room at the back.
