We know this part of the world well and usually stay at a B&B nearby. This being partly closed due to refurbishment we looked on Tripadvisor for an alternative. On the whole reports were favourable so we went ahead and booked for three nights at the Ebury. We were a little taken aback when on arrival we were greeted in a very perfunctory manner by the receptionist on duty who was either having a very bad day or was extremely stressed out. Our room was up three flights of stairs, no lifts, probably due to the nature of the building. However the room was large, spotless and warm, and had everything we needed including a lovely view over the garden. We used the restaurant, where we thought the food was very good, as were the breakfasts.We also made use of room service which was delivered by the manager who could not have been more helpful. Nice also to know that produce was sourced locally where possible. Pool was a bonus, nice not to have to worry about towels and again spotless with loos and showers.If you dont know Canterbury it is well worth a visit and is a brisk 15 minutes walk away. Internet access is also available in your room @ about £5 a day. There were a couple of niggles, like no batteries in the remote for tv, the beds felt like a guest bed, not designed for comfort, which was a shame, and although we ordered a daily paper, two of the three ordered went walkabout. We were told this does happen. Perhaps the answer to this would have been to leave them outside guests rooms instead of on the reception desk? On the whole though a nice relaxing visit.
