We stayed for two nights. We were able to park in the Close which made it much easier to unload and load again.
The room we had was small but comfortable. Breakfast was very good. The staff were very friendly.
Most of the historic sites are within fairly easy walking distance and their are plenty of places to eat.
We would be happy to stay here again.

Stayed: May 2013, travelled as a couple

First, I should point out that we stayed in one of the "value" rooms, which is in a separate building somewhat behind the main lodge, though still on the grounds of Canterbury Cathedral. However, despite not having all of the amenities of the main lodge it was only about 60% of the cost and a definite value. The website stated that the room would not have wi-fi, though a weak signal was available. Also, the website stated that the rooms did not include a view of the cathedral, so we were delighted to find that the room did have a view, though it was partly obstructed. These may vary in other rooms. The room itself was basic, but comfortable. There was an electric tea kettle, TV, etc. All of the value rooms ARE on the second floor and there is NOT a lift, so keep this in mind.
Staying in the lodge did provide us with free access to the cathedral (normally 9.50 pounds per person!) and we did get a complimentary English breakfast, which was superb. By far though, the very best benefit of staying in the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge was being able to wander the grounds after they close the cathedral. The only people on the grounds were the other people in the lodge. My wife and I wandered the outside of the cathedral at sunset, which was an awesome experience in and of itself, but being able to do it with no one else around is priceless.

Stayed here for 2 nights for a wedding anniversary. Room was luxurious with beautiful views of the cathedral and added bonus of enjoying the grounds after hours without the presence of tourists. Perfectly placed to enjoy the centre of town, would highly recommend.

We have just had our wedding here and it was absolutely amazing!! The rooms were brilliant and the staff all so friendly and helpful. We really could not have asked for a better location and venue to celebrate our wedding day!! Pete and Catherine made sure that our day ran smoothly and they had thought of absolutely everything. All of our friends and family have been talking about the lodge ever since and everybody absolutely loved it. We really can't fault it and will definitely be recommending to people in the future and hopefully coming back to stay to remind us of our amazing wedding day. Thank you x

We stayed for one night costing £99, which seems expensive but it did include breakfast and entry to the cathedral. The views from the bedroom were great, and good to have free wi-fi. The room was a bit small but very nice, clean and had a bay window. The staff were really friendly. The breakfast was however a let down. Full English was not cooked very well at all. However, we would stay here again as the view and location was great.

Dear Reviewer

Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay with us and I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay.

I am however sorry to find that you were disappointed with breakfast, particularly as we have recently extended our Continental offering and also cook the Full English breakfast to order, to further improve our standards. Should you have spoken to a member of our team, they would have been pleased to replace for you, but I will certainly investigate further to fully address your comments.

We do look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kind regards

Joanne Thompson
