We ended up booking a room with a shared bathroom, which I have to say I've never done before, but we booked late, so we took the risk. The room was delightful, with a view over the square, and a very cosy and comfortable feel. You get some noise from the street below, but personally I loved hearing the hustle and bustle, and didn't cause us any concern at all. The bathroom, quite honestly looked like it had been refitted for our arrival, as it was absolutely immaculately clean, and we had absolutely no qualms about it being shared at all. Lovely to be able to see the cathedral out of the window while having a morning shower.
On our arrival to Canterbury, we were able to leave our luggage at reception, so that we could explore the city without any luggage, and our bags were waiting in our room when we arrived. The reception will also sell you highly reduced parking permits, allowing access to most of the city's car parks for an evening or 24 hour rate - perfect for us!
Breakfast itself was very tasty, although it all felt like a bit of a fraught affair, as they were experiencing a real rush, and some other guests were getting a little uptight.
So overall, we would highly recommend this hotel. The location is absolutely perfect for exploring the city, the rooms are very comfortable and clean, and the staff are really friendly and attentive.
