Went as part of a party of 11 for the Gala Dinner Christmas meal. I was shocked at paying £45 to be served a slab of pate with no toast, crackers or bread to eat with it, one piece of beef, 1 fondant potato and 1 cauliflower head both the size of an ice cream scoop, (oh to have a... More

This is a gem of a Hotel. Delightful setting, well appointed rooms, great location, wonderfully friendly and helpful staff, delicious food and a very comfortable lounge and bar. It is about 20 minutes walk to Kent and Canterbury Hospital, 10 minutes to the cricket ground and 10 minutes to the CityCentre.

The room was a good size and very clean with comfortable beds. We did miss the availability of a mini-bar as we just wanted to chill in our room rather than go down to the bar. Finding a parking space was a bit difficult when we arrived and we couldn't see any disabled spaces. I am a Blue Badge holder.

We stopped at this hotel as it was a Best Western marque and we felt it would offer value and quality. We were not disappointed. Staff were gracious and the rate, 80 pounds, was reasonable in the off season. We left the car in the car park while we headed to the cathedral, the city centre was in easy walking... More

A really lovely hotel just a short 10-15 min walk from Canterbury centre. Friendly and helpful staff, both on the desk and at breakfast. Rooms nicely furnished and well maintained, and a nice view out over the garden seating area. Overall a great stay.

A charming hotel. The room was clean if not a bit dated. The receptionist on our arrival was not the most efficient. Ideally located with Canterbury centre only a fifteen minute casual walk away. Overall a pleasant stay and would consider again if in Canterbury.

Well situated, clean, nicely decorated, friendly staff, comfortable, quietish and close to the city centre. Downsides? For breakfast my smoked salmon was like a soggy lettuce and the scrambled egg was like runny porridge. Didn't try the evening meals but the dining room is a little dark and boring; when there are so many cheaper, varied and lively eateries in... More

This is the second time I have stopped here nice hotel, rooms are clean. Breakfast is fab best scrambled eggs I've had in a long time. Large free car park and about a 15 minute walk into town. Can't wait to see what the spa will be like when it's built
