Great hotel to stay in if visiting Canterbury. The room we were allocated was large and comfortable. Great seating area within a turret. Breakfast of good quality. We were allocated in the older building which has character.

Hotel is short walk from center and parking is good. We had a warm welcome at reception and really made welcome. The room looked neat and comfortable however as we discovered the bed was hard as a board and the most uncomfortable we have ever experienced. Things got worse when we returned to the room because the elephants entered the...

Breakfast was well cooked, varied with cooked, cereals, fruit, pastries, ham/cheese etc etc. Very quiet location given you are only a 10 min walk into town. We only stayed for one night as a get away for my husband's birthday with...

Stayed for three nights, very comfortable room with lounge area. Did not have to use the car as attractions were within walking distance. Great shops and restaurants nearby. Good selection and service at breakfast, reception staff very helpful. Would stay again.

This Hotel was ideal for visiting friends who lived nearby. Within easy walk of the city. The room was just what I needed with all the facilities I required. Staff very helpful and friendly. Restaurant looked good although I didn't use it on this occasion as I was eating with friends nearby.

Chosen because it was billed as a ten minute walk into Canterbury and it was. Great choice at breakfast and really good bar food. Dinner good but choice limited because of kitchen refurbishment. Only downside was that the heating was turned up so high we needed the room air conditioning on in early February

Thank you for your review. Delighted to read that our location was perfect for your needs whilst visiting Canterbury. We have adjusted the times we have the heating on whilst we are experiencing these higher than normal temperatures, which should remedy that issue. Thank you for mentioning our food offerings and pleased everything was to your liking. As you say...
