This lovely little hotel was chosen from the internet because we were looking for a hotel in Cambridge with a pool. We were not disappointed - the male receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were good, clean and well stocked with teas, coffees etc. The bathroom looked like it had been recently refurbished and was complete with lots of toiletries including toothbrush !
Breakfast was served by a very enthusiastic waitress, - plenty of choice, and excellent poached eggs each morning ( not all hotels seem to be able to produce a decent poached egg!) The hotel is a short walk from the city. We also visited Chilham , on the breakfast lady's recommendation, which is well worth a visit and only 15minutes by car from the hotel. Should you visit Chilham, you will pass Badgers Hill "alternative" garden centre, tea rooms and animal sanctuary and this is a must to visit for a quirky experience !
We made use of the pool and had a couple of treatments in the Spa - very good value with friendly
The car park is small and parking is tight if you have a large vehicle.
I would certainly recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay again if in the Canterbury area.
