First impressions, before arriving, were mixed - told that the hotel could only provide evening meals if we took a fixed menu option. Instead, we were referred to one of the nearby restaurants which proved to be t=great and once I got used to the idea of popping out to get my diner, i began to like the hotel a little more. Breakfast was just right - the choice was limited compared to some hotels but in fact, there was enough for most tastes and it saved me eve-eating! Again, the bar had a limited range but included something for everyone in our party, so I couldn't r early complain. My only real problem was the fact that my room was at ground floor, facing the road, which meant a stream of people passing the window and a lot of noise form the pub until late at night. I really should have asked to be moved, so have myself to blame in part.
All things considered, I think that once you accept that this is not a hotel trying to be a destination in itself (no pool, no gym, no corona bleu chef) you begin to see that for anyone wanting a use to explore Canterbury and the surrounding area, it really is pretty good and I would not hesitate to recommend it.
