This is the second time that we've stayed at Abode, and as before we stayed for just one night as a treat. It's a good hotel but as other reviewers have said, it doesn't quite live up to the mission it sets itself. The good: Location is superb, our room was spacious with lots of drinks and nibbles to tuck into, great bathroom, huge comfy bed, lovely breakfast, pleasant staff. The not so good: Shower only produced cold water and was broken (loose part on the controls). We told the front desk about this and, to their credit, they offered to take a look/sort out a room for us the next morning for us to shower in but we declined as we were only staying one night, so used the bath instead. We were a little disappointed that they didn't go the extra mile and do something to compensate for this - a free drink in the bar perhaps? It was noisy at night with people going up and down the high street but I guess this is something you have to accept as a sacrifice for the location. One of the bathrobes was torn and the television reception wasn't very good. Also, there were areas of the hotel that were looking tired. So, in summary, not what you would expect from a top end luxury boutique hotel. The little details really let it down. But I'd still recommend it for a short stay in Canterbury.
