We stayed in room 225. It had a dressing room as well as the double bedroom and a small but adequate bathroom. Very warm and plenty of furniture for our clothes, cases etc. Views nothing to talk about. Bed reasonably comfortable. The whole of the hotel has a very cosy feel to it. The reception was always manned but the bar wasn't, still not a problem because the receptionist always sorted it. The food in the restaurant in the evenings was good but some dishes were a little bland. The breakfast was very good.
All historical sites are within 15 minutes walk.
We had a guided tour on our first morning which was very informative and i would suggest that everyone should do this at the start of their stay, i spoke to the landlord of the Old Buttermarket Inn who said he had also taken the tour when he first came to Canterbury and highly recommends it, so, good enough for the locals then good enough for me.
We would definitely stay here again.
