I have just returned from a 4-night stay at this hotel and, overall, I liked the hotel. It is situated in extensive grounds yet only about a 10 min walk from Canterbury centre. I found the staff friendly enough and I liked the old-fashioned ambience. The A/C in the room was bliss in the heat!
What I did not like was the very poor lighting in the bedroom (impossible to read anything) and, yes, the floors do creak amazingly! The food was average, at best, despite the numerous pictures of it on the website. Starters and desserts were OK but the mains were uninspired (good-quality meat & fish but dull presentation, particularly the veg.).
