We had a fantastic stay at the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge. The room is clean, the bed is comfy, and the view of the cathedral is unbeatable. Staff are welcoming, attentive and always willing to help. Breakfast is included and is fantastic including some dishes to order (eggs and toast, for example). Location couldn't be better: inside the cathedral walls; this alone is amazing as you can get a view of the cathedral without the crowds either before they open or after it closes. The close up view at night is priceless. Staying at the lodge also gives free entrance to the cathedral.

Stayed one night with my daughter and loved the hotel. It really is in a spectacular position with the views of the floodlit cathedral at night. Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are of a good standard and we found the twin beds to be very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and would be perfect if they provided cafetieres, rather than pots of coffee! We loved the convenient location and hope to be back soon!

We had our wedding reception at Canterbury Cathedral lodge. We booked it in February 2013 which is when our experience began. We had Catherine Lucas as our event coordinator. Catherine was absolutely amazing, she happily helped us throughout the whole process even when changed the wedding date and changed the arrangements many times. She answered my endless emails and made the whole process stress free. I cannot thank her enough.
The actual day was even more perfect. It was everything we had wished for, It went without a hitch. The staff were very helpful and attentive and couldn't do enough for us.
We stayed for 3 nights in total in the Burgate Flat which has 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room and bathroom. The flat was much bigger than expected and very comfortable.
Our guests were all very happy with their rooms too and the breakfast was lovely!
Canterbury Cathedral lodge is simply perfect. Perfect setting, lovely rooms and food, and extremely friendly staff. Overall we were extremely happy with our time there, we were overwhelmed with the service we received throughout and will definitely return!

My only complaint about this stay is that it was only for one night and I wish I could have stayed longer! Rare to find a hotel about which you have no quibbles but this is one as the hotel is well located (that's an understatement for the actual site!) and very comfortable. Well thought out rooms with extra touches and serving staff in the restaurant who are obviously silver service trained. Now I've just got to find an excuse to go back!

As well as being perfectly situated for the cathedral and historic town, being able to park right outside is an added bonus. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and had an outstanding view of the cathedral. Even though our breakfast was a little haphazard with mine arriving after my partners was finished, I would thoroughly recommend a stay here.
