            • Family with children
              6.2

              Beautiful hotel, located in nice part of Canterbury. Clean and typical English room Spacious bathroom

              Room a bit small for travelling with two children. We only recieved one of the two requested babycots

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              Hotel and rooms maintained to a good standard. Good size car park. Friendly staff.

              Over priced, tepid breakfast. Restaurant prices not clear enough and seem a bit misleading. Final check out bill had extras wrongly added. Not impressed with the fact people would still be charged for the room if they had to cancell, regardless of notice given.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              Location, clean and tidy, good restaurant

            • Couple
              9.6

              1. adequate safe parking, 2. Really friendly professional staff, 3. Top quality food and wine, 4. clean spacious room with really comfortable bed, 5. easy walk to anywhere in the City that I needed to go. 6. loved the hotel and have recommended it to a colleague already.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Lovely Hotel, Attentive staff. Have been before and would return without hesitation.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              Friendly senior waiter at breakfast and excellent breakfast. Spacious bedroom with wall mounted t.v. Easy access to Canterbury. Pleasant gardens. Easy parking.

              Creaky floorboards in the room above us which meant that we could hear the occupants moving about very clearly - this disturbed our sleep on several occasions. Only one comfortable chair in our room - would have been nice to have one each.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Helpful staff, early check in, and lovely room

              There is a very noisy generator/ fan in the kitchen and the hum from this seems to go onto about midnight and then start again early in the morning.This seems hard to get away from - we've stayed 3 times and can always hear it. It was fine this time as it was cold so we had our window shut but it would be difficult in the Summer

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Rooms had been modernised since the last time I was there and were very comfortable. Bar also very good.

            • Single
              7.0

              It was quiet, friendly with welcoming reception and the room was clean with all the expected ammenities

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              The room was well appointed and comfortable - excellent.

              The service at breakfast is good; but the cooking is very poor. Soggy toast, bitter coffee, badly cooked egg, and you charge £10 for it! It was the same last time we stayed - you need to do something about it. Next time we will breakfast elsewhere.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              The hotel was conveniently located just a short walk into the centre. There was free wi-fi. The room was comfortable and quiet.

              We thought the breakfast was expensive.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              Friendly, helpful staff. spacious rooms with tea and coffee making facilities, set back from main road, walkable into Canterbury.

              Would have liked the rate to include breakfast, it was over priced and dldn't have a vegetarian option. We paid for a cooked meal that was minus meat so was just half a plate of food....

            • Couple
              8.2

              Liked the shower, nice sized bathroom, good tv with lots of channels! Nice staff, & clean bedroom!

            • Single
              8.2

              good location and nice room

              the room was very noisy - we could hear the people above us walking in their room

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              nice bedroom very comfortable

              noisy pre party group in the bar
