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.
