“Central hotel”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Room clean, bedding clean. Stair wells in need of attention and cleaning. A little confusion as to whether bar was 24 hour. when buzzer pressed at bar, no staff member appeared at all within 5mins. Staff friendly and helpful on check in.

Parking - cheaper if you pay at reception rather than automated car park machine. Mattress & pillow quality much improved. Very good central location for visiting Canterbury either for Cathedral or shops!

Checked in early for an extra £10 - room was very small but adequate. I think we were just unlucky as a friend was also staying and had a room twice the size!! Odd that the bathroom has no heating and was freezing. Lots of noise from other guests in the early hours on the first night kept us awake but the 2nd night was fine. 24 hour bar and food served till quite late in the little café/bar downstairs but a short walk to Wetherspoons and the food is half the price and much tastier. Ideal and convenient for a short city break however had we know there was now a Premiere Inn just up the road we would have booked there instead.

A lovely big clean room with a comfortable bed. Pristine bathroom and clean towels provided.
The hotel was quiet in spite of being in the centre of the city.
The reception and restaurant staff very attentive.
Don't think twice about booking here, very convenient for visiting the university and for a short city break.

Stayed for a Saturday night. The location is ideal, a short walk from the town centre but far enough away to not suffer from any late night partying noise, at least our room at the rear was quiet. The room was spotless, all very new with a nice comfortable bed, then we pulled back the curtains ... The "view" was of what looked like the air con plant, about 3 feet from the window. On the plus side the weather was awful and we couldn't see it! Room 114. Could have done with more towels, only a hand towel and small bath towel for 2 people. The tap water had a tainted taste, which could have been the new kettle or just needed the tap running for a while. Apart from these minor gripes the hotel is a good deal considering it's location but you do need to add the cost of breakfast and parking. I would stay again.

We stayed at this Travelodge in Canterbury last week whilst attending our daughters graduation.
The location is ideal for the city, minutes from the cathedral and shopping areas.
I have not always been a big fan of Travelodge BUT on this occasion I could not fault the reception staff who were very friendly and helpful. The morning of our stay we missed breakfast by 20 minutes but the chef couldn’t have been more helpful and provided breakfast for the 3 of us. My only quibble was that you pay £7.65 regardless of what you eat hence as I only wanted 2 slices of toast and marmalade it was expensive.
The room was warm, very clean, if a bit on the small side, but we were only there for a night. WC and shower were fine as were the tea making facilities and TV etc. The bed, sometimes a let down in the past, was very comfortable.
My only other issue is charging £7.50 to park, charging anything at all grinds with me hence this amount is excessive.
Overall fine and I would stay there again.
