“Charming hotel, perfect location”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We stayed one night for my daughter's graduation in the cathedral. We had two lovely rooms, the rear facing one was better because the front faces onto a roundabout and would be noisy if you opened the windows so was very hot. There is adequate parking and the location is perfect, opposite the castle and just a short walk to the cathedral.

Room Tip: Ask for a rear facing room away from the roundabout.

A very nice hotel wonderfully placed for Canterbury city centre. Has parking facilities which puts it in a good position compared with some of the other hotels in the city. Would thoroughly recommend.

Nice hotel in a landmark building located on the edge of the city center, with private parking. Very friendly staff that is also responsible for an excellent breakfast.Uunfortunately we had room 6 at the front of the hotel right next to a very busy roundabout. The noise of the traffic is stressful.

Very good location - especially if travelling by train or car
Breakfast is top notch - full or half order prepared by Sochi with great care.
Matt and Maria at the front desk will serve every need you have.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the garden also face roundabout but roads are quiet during the night. A half breakfast...

Stayed for a two day break with my sisters last weekend and what a great little hotel. We booked a family room and it was perfect for us, spacious and clean and although it faced a main road it was very quiet.
Breakfast was included and was really good with plenty of choice. The location is ideal, its just a five or ten minute stroll to the high street and only a fifteen minute walk to the train station.
Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: We were in a separate building from the main hotel and so we did not experience any noise from the k...

The room was nice, large and comfortable. The bathroom was huge and fabulous. The desk did say we had the largest bath in the hotel. Quiet, good breakfast, very English with baked beans, but good. Close to Canterbury Cathedral, just a short walk.

Room Tip: No pool, closer to a bed and breakfast in type.
