Stayed here for a visit to Canterbury University, arrived late (2200 Hrs) and was told that though the kitchen was closed they could "knock up" something, 15 minutes later a really nice Ham salad sandwich arrived saving us a trip into the local area to forage for food.
Polish Girl on reception was warm, friendly, and humorous, and everyone we spoke to were polite and went the extra mile made us feel welcome.
I can take on board some of the previous remarks on the tripadvisor, the Hotel is obviously very old and the building quirky as one would expect with uneven ceilings and floors, I can imagine that if there was any sort of noise (from the function rooms) it would filter in as the walls are obviously thin in places, but we had none of these problems, indeed the room was very quiet, we both had a good nights sleep on comfortable beds, the blackout curtains certainly helped.
Following morning we had a cooked breakfast the following morning, the food was very good and hot when it arrived, once again served by a waiter who was smartly presented and efficient.
Sadly we did not have time to take in the garden and surroundings which are very well attended but it would be well worth taking a walk in the Hotel grounds should the weather permit as there are extensive gardens and lakes to "take in".
Prices for a mid week stay were very competitive and included breakfast, if my daughter chooses to go to University here we would definitely stay here again.
