Excellent stay & unique experience

It's a rare opportunity to stay within cathedral grounds (when you're not a monastic that is), and there's no better opportunity to do so than at the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge.

The rooms are lovely, the views of the cathedral and the grounds are beautiful, and the service and breakfast is excellent. The rooms are very affordable when you consider that the rate includes unlimited entry into the cathedral and the grounds (do go for a cathedral tour).

After nearly a year of planning, what an amazing party we had. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything went smoothly on the night. The food was tasty and plentiful. The events team worked hard to make everything perfect.
Those of us who stayed, found the hotel rooms clean, comfortable and with the Cathedral views a very pleasant place to stay. The breakfasts were simply delicious with lots of choice.
The location is amazing. Right in the city centre, easy walking distance to so many attractions.
On the whole, an ace weekend spent with friends and family. Thank you to the lodge for a wonderful weekend.

I stayed here for a one night visit and cannot heap enough praise on the staff,

The room was spotless, comfortable and stunning view

Breakfast was better than a 5 star hotel that we recently stayed in, everything was excellent quality and service was great.

Can’t wait to return

Room tip: This is a wonderful place to stay in Canterbury, in the cathedral grounds, just be aware that it only does breakfast, no restaurant or bar.

We stayed one night in one of the rooms in the adjacent building, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Very nice clean bedroom with a big ensuite bathroom, and right next to the cathedral, couldn't have asked for more.
Delicious breakfast too cooked to order!

A beautiful hotel with a superb view of the cathedral from our bedroom windows.The staff was friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.Our rooms were clean and comfortable and the ambience calm and relaxing.We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast as there was so much choice.The location was excellent and we felt totally in the heart of things.Our favourite room was the library ,a place to unwind after a day's sightseeing. We would highly recommend this hotel to everyone,a restful haven right in the midst of a bustling city.

Room tip: Choose a room with a view of the cathedral.

Stayed one night for my wife's birthday. The view and location was as described, the service, comfort and cleanliness were superb and the atmosphere serene. Pound for pound - great hospitality. Highly recommended.

Room tip: Book a room with a view you will not be disappointed.
