I stayed here for 2 nights as I thought it would be convenient fir visiting Canterbury and the Cathedral. Indeed it was an easy run in to town and a lovely quiet house and gardens to return to after a days sightseeing. Staff were helpful. Room though a distance upstairs and along corridors was comfortable with 2 windows looking out on the beautiful grounds. We had one evening meal here which was good but we did not eat breakfast here as it was very expensive at £13.95 as not included in our rate.
The only other negative was perhaps the entrance. Initial impressions are poor as the doormats were dirty and worn and needed replaced and the reception looked makeshift. This was a pity as it was a perfectly nice hotel with helpful staff and a car park.

My friend and I went away for a girls weekend and chosen this hotel as our base. We had a lovely time and both of our rooms were spotlessly clean and mine overlooked the lovely grounds.

We had dinner the first night and both chose the Chefs pie, which was incredibly nice with really smooth mash and lovely vegetables. The Waitress who served us was lovely. Breakfast was lovely and the full English was really well cooked and tasty.

I slept really well both nights and was grateful that there were good tea and coffee making facilities in the room, so I could have a cup of tea before bed!

The only slight concern was the grumpy chap who checked us in and gave us breakfast on the Sunday. He seemed a bit moody and didn't say anything to us - Everyone is entitled to a bad day, but I hope we didn't do anything wrong!

We wanted somewhere close to Canterbury, just for an overnight stay, to do some geocaching and shopping. We got a really good deal on this beautiful hotel, for just £49 for a double room with breakfast. We were given a room with a four poster bed, which was beautiful. Lovely grounds, the staff were very friendly and helpful,
We had room 11, there was just one small problem with the room, the sink only had a trickle of water which was cold, but we did report this on our comments paper, so I am sure the problem is already solved. It wasn't a problem to us anyway, we just used the bath!!
We ate there in the evening too, but had expected a more special menu, but it suited us, and all in all was very good. My starter was excellent, the main course of chicken kiev was a bit short on garlic butter, it seemed to have evaporated, but was good nevertheless, and the dessert, a chocolate fondant was really good. The waitress was lovely too, helpful and always a ready smile.
We loved it and would certainly return.

On 12th May 2017 we held our wedding at Howfield Manor Hotel. It was a fantastic day thanks to the professionalism and organisation skills of Hayley, the wedding coordinator, and the bar staff etc. Everyone commented on how good the food was and how the day was organised so well. Our thanks forever, Lyn & Terry

We chose Howfield as overnight stop before catching ferry next day from nearby Dover. This location was convenient for ust 30 mins to ferry terminal and near to park & ride for afternoon visit to Canterbury. Hotel and largish room 10 fine but we were disappointed with choices in evening menu for such a well appointed hotel. As another reviewer recently mentioned....needs greater creativity. We found reception staff and waitress polite and helpful.
