Have just returned from a two night stay. The location, hotel , staff and service were excellent. Full of old world charm and character. Ticked all the boxes. Will definitely be back when next in the area

We went in Howfield for a 2-day meeting. The meeting room was nice and set up as planned and we had everything we need (notebook, pens, refreshments, coffee & tea, fruits, etc.)... except wi fi which was not working in the room. We had an excellent buffet for lunch and were lucky to eat outside on a private terrasse close to the meeting room. The staff was nice and reactive, each time we needed something we would have it in a minute. Special thanks to Alex and Remi who were in charge of our group. The Hotel was full so we couldn't stay at night.

A lovely hotel in a wonderful setting. The staff were friendly and extremely
The food was lovely and the breakfast excellent.
One improvement I would suggest would be more local beer, wine and cider in the bar but other than that well worth a visit as it's reasonably priced.

We've just spent our evening celebrating my husband's 50th birthday at Howfield Manor. There were 19 of us in our group, including 4 children and everything was just perfect all evening. We were allowed to decorate the room earlier in the day, which was very helpful, and staff helped us rig up a laptop and projector so we could watch the rugby during our meal. Nothing was too much trouble and staff were attentive but not in the way throughout the evening. The food was delicious and plentiful. I cannot rate this beautiful place highly enough. Thank you!

Was back in Canterbury for a night and decided to revisit an old favourite now in new hands.
Very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable rooms (We had a Half Tester Bed).
Breakfast was really good too. My Mum was in a separate room just across the hall.
IF you need to overnight in Canterbury then you would be foolish to go to one of the ones with meagre parking and more than adequate prices and you should come to Howfield which is only just outside the city limits but that has so many charms.
Next time will stay longer.
TIP - Call them directly rather than using one of these "low-cost" sites and you will probably be luck like me - I saved over 25% doing this.

Room Tip: Great view on dual aspect from Room 5
