This was as good as it gets for us. We were delighted when we arrived to find this gorgeous hotel on the edge of Canterbury. We opted for a cab from the Canterbury West train station which takes you though the lovely old town of Canterbury. The hotel is situated on a couple of acres in a nice neighborhood. The hotel is the perfect combination of old and new. The decor is alternately subtle combination of Victorian and contemporary. Our room (number 6) was spacious with a 4 poster bed, loveseat, and desk. The bathroom was roomy and was appointed with big fluffly towels and Crabtree and Evelyn products. The closet offered coffee/tea service and thick terry robes. The bed was large although a bit hard. The linens were the same quality as everything else provided. The breakfast provided in the dining room was served at tables set with linens and silver was very good. The service was top notch. The staff was not overly visible, but always available when needed. The grounds are lovely gardens with blooming hydrangeas.
We would love to stay another night, but predictably the hotel is fully booked for the weekend. This is a no-brainer, you get what you pay for and this is worth every penny.
