Booked for 1 night to visit Canterbury and see the Cathedral and city. Check in was quick and the room spacious and comfortable. There were small steps down to our room which would not be good for some. As we had a snack in Canterbury we opted for a bar snack which was tasty and good. Free WiFi was not...

Thank you for your review from your stay in March It is disappointing to read of course. To put the facts correctly I am sure you can appreciate that your tour operator sets the prices to 'you' the general public and this is not the price we receive. I am not allowed to disclose what we receive however from my...

The Cathedral was a 10 minute walk away from the hotel with no major streets to cross. The hotel room I had was clean and comfortable, facing the back of the property. It was quiet except early in the morning when the birds were chirping. I found the pillows flat and hard although others in the group I was traveling...

Booked an executive twin room as a christmas present for my mother to go and watch Kent play cricket, the only executive thing about it was the price, I've stayed in bigger & better rooms at a travellodge. Had to ask at reception for a rubber mat for the shower/bath after slipping and almost falling, thought there would have been...

Thank you for your review. Great to see the positives of your review and apologies for the way that you feel that you have been let down by us. I note that you 'purchased' your room back in November last year - in February this year we went through a complete rate strategy re assessment to avoid negatives wherever possible...

10 minutes walk to Canterbury centre. Far enough away not to get caught up with any noise. Room was clean. And a good size. Bar is very cosy and well decorated. We didn't eat there so can't rate the food. Staff were very polite and we felt welcomed. Good price. Would stay again.

The hotel was being renovated but this did not affect our stay other than there being restricted parking. This was especially so for the coach driver who had to make difficult manoeuvres. The hotel is within walking distance of Canterbury centre (about a mile) Staff were welcoming and helpful except for one occasion in the dining room when tables were...

We rather enjoy this hotel having stayed several times before. The location is good with it only being a ten minute walk from the hotel to the center of Canterbury, likewise the rooms are good and the parking is just about adequate. The only downsides being very small portions of food in the restaurant along with the lack of sides...

The hotel is in a good quiet location with a short walk to the city centre and easy to locate when arriving by car. The staff were all polite, friendly and helpful from arrival to departure. Our room had a large bathroom with a bath and natural daylight - both unusual in most other hotels I've stayed in!

Returned for our first wedding anniversary, wow...couldn't fault anything, staff were amazing-on emailing the manager asking for a couple of requests, they had upgraded our room from a double to the bridal suite as a surprise, which was wonderful, chocolates and strawberries to eat, and an anniversary card as well from the staff! Top hotel and fantastic staff! 5* stay

The room was a little small but they made up for it with a great bathroom and walk in wardrobe. Didn't have a great view which was a shame (it was of a building site) but we were only there to enjoy the town not the view from the room so we weren't bothered. The room was very clean and...

Thank you for your review. Pleased to read you enjoyed your recent stay with us. We do have different categories of room types, our deluxe rooms being the biggest with views of the garden.
