my wife an i stayed here for three days in late september. the hotel is located in the grounds of the cathedral and as such is nice and quiet and the view from your room is as good as it gets. the rooms, though not large, are well equipped and the staff at the hotel and in the grounds of the cathedral itself were very friendly and helpful (one of the grounds security chaps was giving us a talk on some of the wonderful trees in the grounds. it was great). the buffet breakfast is good and varied. to be able to walk around the cathedral grounds in the late evening when the crowds have gone is a real bonus and gave me the chance to break out my tripod and get some good shots of the illuminated cathedral. step outside the cathedral and you are right in the middle of the town with lots of lovely old streets and buildings to explore. two suggestions for visitors. 1, take the 40 min rowing boat tour. informative and amusing. well worth it. 2. if you fancy a quick bite to eat try the little cafe in the old gaol by the Westgate. fabulous food and good price. we really enjoyed our short stay in canterbury and the hotel and it's location made all the difference. we would not think twice about coming here again or recommending it to others.
