An excellent all rounder. Comfortable, friendly staff, exceptional breakfast, outstanding evening meals, great location. Very good value for money.
One slight 'beware'....room 16 is situated at the end of the party marquee. Music til midnight on our stay. It didn't bother us too much but I would imagine it could if you needed an early nights sleep!

We stayed for a weekend in February 2017. The hotel is comfortably and traditionally furnished. The food is very well presented and of a high standard, and the staff were very efficient, polite and helpful. This hotel is a good base for a sightseeing holiday.

The place is a maze of uneven, angular floors, creaking boards, and bits that lookout of place. But Alexander the Great himself could've rested here after a month's raping and pillaging, so if it's THAT old, the usual rating scale doesn't apply. So forgive the gap under the door, the dodgy windows, the fact that it is totally un -disabled friendly, the dangerously uncontrollable shower (Room 6) and the things that go bump in the night, and the Manor is a wonderful place to stay.

We dined twice...fabulous restaurant and great service from Mary, and the all-in full-on breakfast - included in the stay, is a great bonus. Top quality.

Great hotel, fantastic food, including breakfast. Room very comfortable and cosy. Staff excellent, will definitely stay again, we will return in late spring early summer when the flowers are in Bloom. I think it will be stunning. See you all again soon. Thank you.

If you want a small hotel with excellent service, comfort and high quality food then I fully recommend Howfield Manor. We have enjoyed our last 2 Christmases here and found the overall experience exactly what we wanted. First class food and service and a character room with lots of history. We wanted peace and quiet and this is exactly what we got, whether it was taking a walk in the delightful grounds (We must try it in the summer to see it in bloom) or sitting by the (excellent imitation) log fire by the grand fireplace in the lounge. The staff go out of their way to help without being intrusive. We decided it was just the place to go for a short Valentine's day and we were not wrong. We've had another lovely stay and this has become our favourite hotel in the south east.

The hotel is located 2 miles from Canterbury but this is no problem. About a mile away is Park and Ride which lets you park your car all day and up to 6 people can ride in and out of central Canterbury on the bus (every 7 minutes) as much as they wish for a mere £3 total. What a bargin!

Canterbury is an interesting city and an excellent shopping centre. We will certainly be coming back and will be staying at Howfield Manor.

Room Tip: Character rooms with uneven floors from the original manor (our choice) or modern rooms built in the 1980s.
