Stayed here to visit our son at University. Initially I was somewhat frustrated that my wife had booked me into a "conference centre"! You know the score! Heavily used rooms, terrible toiletries that you wouldn't even use to clean the loo and the dreaded shower curtain! Only bettered by rubbish stodgy food cooked by a 16 year old with a working knowledge of microwaves!
BUT! Not here in Canterbury!
This place exudes warmth, cleanliness, attention to detail and an amazing breakfast that was cooked to order! No more wet scrambled eggs in some soulless container staying warm accompanied by beans that had become one cement like red covering! Oh no this breakfast was one of the best I have had considering that last week I was IN SF at the Mark Hopkins a true 5 star and this "conference centre" beat it hands down.
From check in to leaving we were made to feel "valued". Our room although small was furnished in modern colours and had everything we needed for a one night stay. The view of the Cathedral was spectacular, especially at night and the WiFi was fast and easy to access for our IPAD.
They make the simple things seem easy and with this central location it is incredibly hard to better. We will stay again soon, although I don't think our son will be best pleased that we are "invading" his University experience. The next time we visit we will stay here and not tell him!
Canterbury Cathedral Lodge you deserve all the plaudits and to the gentleman who offered me his umbrella to help me to the car in a downpour then thank you! That is service you would expect from The Savoy. Well done.
