I absolutely love places that have a historic feel, countryside atmosphere, and that deliver a not too modern yet prestige service. They are very hard to find. Well.... Ive found one!!! This is what Howfield manor is like. Such a relaxed and welcoming place. The venue has such a genuine feel to it. The views, stunning. The food, superb. The service excellent.
Sometimes manors are turned into large hotel establishments that become part of a chain and lose their personal and comforting appeal, however, here I could sense that the venue had some personality and heart of its owners and not been modernised to the extent where it loses it's character and charm. The staff must be employed on personality because although professional, they are super friendly and know when to engage into conversation and when to attend to your desires. Chef cooks a steak like an award winner, and the whole experience for me is something I just have to recommend. Canterbury is a LOVELY place itself. But if your travelling here to stay you have to stay here. It will fit in with with quality of the area itself.
One final thing that I did pick up on was that when I was in the local area conducting business.... I mentioned to my clients where I was staying. Their reaction???....... The best place!! Local reputation is very very good. Lovely place and will u doubtably return. Many thanks.More
