This hotel is expensive, the rooms are small and can be noisy (city centre). However, it does compensate for this in many ways. It has retained a lot of the charm and character of the age of the building both inside and out. Also, the pictures on the walls mean something: images from around Kent or Canterbury which is rare for an hotel, hotels usually opt for souless, pointless pictures of fruit or dull watercolours. It seems odd I draw attention to this but in that sense the hotel goes for an international standard with a local feel. The staff are amazing, the majority are local, truly local so they know the area and can advise accordingly (a rarity in SE England where turnover is high and they get anyone in to do the basic job, usually). They couldn't do enough to accommodate us, moving rooms when the fools next door were noisy; helping us park the car, welcoming us, asking us if we were ok every time they saw us. Yes, it is expensive for a city hotel outside London. But the staff were brilliant and the overall ambience warm and welcoming, the food and service were top-notch. I'd recommend (with a warning on the price) and return. Oh, and the beds - the most comfortable I have slept on, ever.
