We had a three night break for our 40th wedding anniversary and felt that we had struck gold with the Canterbury Hotel.
The rooms, while not spacious, had been recently decorated and are very well appointed with tea and coffee making facilities. The bed was very comfortable and HUGE. It must class as one of the widest beds I have ever slept in !
The bathroom was a good size with an extremely good (and powerful) shower above the bath. The bathroom had also been recently upgraded.
Breakfast was excellent, with a good choice of food from the menu (I recommend the Continental Breakfast with cheese and ham ). The service is unhurried but this is because everything is cooked to order and therefore very good.
The staff are friendly and cannot do enough to make their guests feel welcome. They have a list of good restaurants in the city centre which is very informative and useful. Well worth asking for at reception
As the hotel is only about a mile from the Cathedral i would recommend it for a weekend visit.
