“Stunning refurbishment, a real find just a stone's throw from the centre”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

Me and my boyfriend stayed here only a week after it has re-opened following a refurbishment. We booked a private room and it even had an en-suite! Staff were friendly and the breakfast was lovely, beautiful period house. Canterbury centre about a 10 minute walk away so this is a great value option for this historic town centre. Parking limited, but found a spot on a side road quite easily, will definitely stay in a hostel again.
