Premier Inn Canterbury City Centre Hotel
Ranked #4 of 16 Hotels in Canterbury
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Have just spent 2 nights here, as expected it was a standard Premier Inn, quiet, comfortable beds, clean room, nothing fancy but reliable. The staff here were superb though, the receptionist was very helpful and the waiting staff at breakfast were very friendly.
Car parking is close by but expensive (£12 for 24 hours), location is very close to the High Street and Cathedral areas, however the walk involves going through an underpass, something I was not so keen on doing as a lone female walking after dark.

I booked two hotel rooms at this Premier Inn and I was very impressed with of the rooms. Very enjoyable stay and outstanding value, would highly recommend and would re-visit. The security on the doors was also impressive and made us feel safe.

we stayed for 2 nights and we chose this hotel because I have to use a wheelchair for the moment. The whole experience was very good : the staff are efficient and friendly, the room was big and the bathroom very easy to use. The short walk to the center of town was mainly on the flat: an advantage to be reckoned with when your partner has to push the wheelchair! Breakfast buffet was more than adequate. Good quality/price. If you can get a room with a view over the cathedral... take it!
Looks like a great place for families with children.

Stayed here 1 night on business. This is a really good quality Premier Inn. Very new so the rooms are of a very high standard. Very clean and quiet. Staff extremely friendly. It is in an excellent location, only 5 mins walk from the town centre. Directions on the website seem difficult to follow and it's not on Google maps yet, but if you walk down the high street from north to south and then just keep going across the roundabout you will see a Waitrose in the distance. Head for that and it's on the next block. Will definitely stay here again.

A great stay in a beautiful city, close to town centre, we travel to Canterbury regularly to take/collect our daughter from Uni. This trip was made extra special by the treatment we received from the Premier Inn staff, we will definitely stay here again. There was a slight problem in the room, this was dealt with immediately, and therefore was no longer an issue, the breakfast is amazing, and plentiful.

Situated in a good location, ten minute stroll to the cathedral and other places of interest. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is a pity that there is no no site parking and nearest public car park a bit pricey.

Excellent new Premier Inn right in the center of Canterbury.
Excellent rooms, with Flat screen Tv, Free WiFi for 30 minutes per day.
Tea and coffee making, Also restaurant downstairs, offers good choice of food
and wines. But room was very warm, so had to use air con every night.
No fresh air coming in, as the windows are sealed.
