I picked this hotel as My son is at Kent University and didn't want to drive back to London after taking him out for lunch. We booked the £ 99.00 room, dinner in the tavern and english breakfast. Which seemed like a good deal.
On arrival at the hotel on Sunday lunchtime, the reception area was extremely busy, however our wait was not too long and I found the reception staff to be incredibly helpful, friendly and efficient, we left our bags at reception and went for a drink in the champagne bar before having lunch in Michael Caine's restaurant.
Lunch was very good value at £ 20.00 per head for three courses, the portions are very small but delicious and it was ample for me. I found all of the restaurant staff to be equally as proffessional as reception.
After lunch we went to our room to change before walking around a rain soaked Canterbury and found that our bags had been dropped off for us.
The room was clean and comfortable and perfectly adequate although the bathroom was a little on thr cramped side.
The two course evening meal in the Tavern was simple well cooked pub fayre all cooked very well and again service was friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was very nice and check out was also a pleasant experience.
The only negative I had was being charged £ 5.00 for a parking spot, when you are spending what was in the end nearly £ 300.00 for a night in a hotel, itseems harsh to be charged for parking in a car park that the hotel own. I have only ever come across that at Heathrow Airport or central London when the hotel doesn't have it's own car park.
Apart from that I was happy with our stay and thought the staff to be the Hotel's real asset.
