Reviewed 11 April 2013 via mobile

The manager let us check. in early which was helpful becuse we had a wedding to go too. The room was fantastic, first time in a four poster bed. The room was very clean and nothing was too much trouble.

Thanks Sun hotel

The hotel is family run, the whole place is very clean with so much character. We had a great stay and we love Canterbury especially the breakfast was fantastic and lots. We wonder what Charles Dickens felt staying there all those years ago. Will definitely go back to the Sum hotel when we visit Canterbury.

This is a lovely place, with stunning bedrooms and great location. It's a pity that is not given a worth use. The staff is friendly, yes, but when I am paying those amounts, I expect more than friendly manners. The wi-fi didn't covered our room and no alternative was offered. The breakfast was sad... The staff being absence, it was the owner to cook it... as I said, it was sad The second day we didn't dare.
In my opinion, you could level up your service to balance it with the rest.

Room Tip: Sun Room with the jacuzzi, I think that is the only reason I would come back to the place. But remem...

Unique and charming place in a very central but quiet location, just seconds from the cathedral entrance. I couldn't have wished for a more comfortable stay, my only regret was that my stay was for just the one night.

On our arrival we were met by a helpful member of staff who upgraded us to the Sun room. Loved the room which was warm and clean and had a jacuzzi and beautiful bed. Yes, you could hear the goings on of the street below but it's a very old building! It did seem a little odd that the place was rather deserted as the staff were only there to let us in and in then in the morning. Both of whom were very friendly. It suited our needs perfectly and I would happily stay again. The only drawback being no on site parking but that's expected given the location.
