The best thing about this hotel is the location!! It is literally on the high street... as soon as you walk out of the hotel you are in the buzz of everything. You can walk to Canterbury Cathedral within minutes and there are lots of restaurants and bars to wine and dine.
The room itself was comfortable and suitable for two people. It had all of the amenities that we needed although the bathroom was a little small. In terms of decor.. its not as modern as other hotels that I have stayed in but I guess your not in your room for long if u are exploring Canterbury!
It was a little noisy at times as we were directly on the street but it didn't affect our sleep (and the high street is relatively quiet at night). We ventured into the bar in the evening which was very quiet and didn't have much atmosphere... that could have been because it was a Sunday evening...
We were fortunate enough to get a parking space too... It is around the back and very small so you do have to take your chances. Overall... I would definately return!
