Nice hotel with very friendly staff and quiet, comfortable rooms. Breakfasts were good with decent juice, coffee and lots of menu choices. Dinner a la carte was overpriced with few choices and sadly our main courses were not up to scratch, certainly not worth the money. Stayed two nights but had dinner in town the 2nd night. Lots of restaurants...

Pleasant comfortable stay, very clean room & bathroom, excellent buffet style breakfast with attentive staff for any special request. Welcoming and helpful reception staff. Just enough parking spaces. We chose to eat-out in the City, for Dinner as, we were disappointed with the very limited set menu - 1 meat (chicken), 1 fish, 1 veg. We stayed for three nights...

We used this Hotel for a seminar. The staff were helpful and polite. The food was very good with a wide choice of sandwiches, crisps, fresh vegetables with dip, fruit pieces, or biscuits with tea coffee water or orange juice.

I was there to see some cricket. Easy walk to ground, easy walk to town. The food was always good whether in restaurant or bar. Could park right by the entrance, but didn't touch my car for the four days I was there. Very relaxed with helpful and friendly staff. Nothing at all to complain about, everything in room worked...

My parents, myself & Maisie the French Bulldog stayed for 2 nights, May 5th & 6th. The old building is beautiful & the old, much used furniture in the bar & lounge are in keeping with the decor. The small grass area at the front of the building is ideal for small doggie runs. I'm please to say that all...

Stayed in executive room, comfortable and decent size. Welcoming staff and a good breakfast. Lovely setting in spacious grounds. Quite an old building and plumbing a little noisy at times. Doors between corridors have a kick, have to be careful.

We have stayed here before on our way to the Channel tunnel. The parking right outside the hotel is perfect. It is quiet as it is set off the road and they have pleasant gardens to wander around. Also it is pet friendly. The bar area is good and serve some nice wines. Did not eat here as we were...

Very close to the centre - does not take long at all to walk into Canterbury to where the cultural and shopping venues are situated. The room I stayed in was clean and comfortable.

This hotel is all about the staff - they were extremely hard working, friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. Despite many of them being quite young, their professionalism was top class at all times. The hotel itself was undergoing some updating during our stay but nothing disruptive - would I stay again? - absolutely!
