This was our first English hotel to stay in after arriving from the United States. Our stay was only one night, but we were quite pleased with the accommodations. We chose the property because of its "old estate charm" and also because it offered plenty of free parking. It is not located directly in town, but it was no problem at all to take a ten minute walk from the hotel to the historical sights in the beautiful city. The grounds were beautiful and well-groomed, and the rooms were clean and had all of the necessary amenities. We did find the shower tub area quite slippery, as there was no available rubber bath mat or anti-slip stickers. We had dinner in town, but had the hotel's breakfast buffet, which was tasty and adequate. Our two rooms were separated by several hallways that seemed to change direction often, plus there was a small stairway in the midst of it all. Nevertheless, it did not bother us at all, and only added to the charm of the facility since it was a former estate. Staff was friendly and courteous and we would definitely stay here again if our travels took us to Canterbury.
