Stayed overnight at the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge and booked their 'apartment' room 306 which consisted of a small sitting room, fully functional kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. Took advantage of the parking options within the cathedral grounds which was invaluable as they are secured at night which is far better than just leaving the car in a cark park in the city.
The apartment was pleasant rather than opulent and does back onto a service road which means there is some noise from outside but not an issue. The beds can be made up as twin or queen double but would benefit from locking together when made up as a double to avoid the two halves drifting apart. Breakfast was in a newish dining room and was very pleasant.
You also qualify for free admission to the Cathedral together with negotiated discounts from various restaurants in the city which we used and worked well plus 10% off in the Cathedral shop. If you go I would suggest you try the Goods Shed or Piccolo's. I will stay here again on my next visit.
