Reasonably priced with clean rooms and friendly staff. Lovely breakfast too, always a hit for me. Close to the city restaraunts and bars. Highly recommend. The cathedral is within walking distance also.

Our two night stay in this hotel didn't exactly get off to a good start. On arrival we were shown to our room by a pleasant member of staff only to find that the headboard was wonky (it had come away from the rest of the bed and broken), the hinges off one of the cupboards was broken, a door...

I booked this for 4 nights after reading some reviews and was really looking forward to staying here. It is in a good location, easy to find with a car park....although it is small with tight spaces but I managed. The staff were reallly friendly but I was very disappointed to find out that they do not do evening meals....

I feel bad giving this place a bad review, since the staff were very nice and always doing their best. However, they cannot help with the fact that the hotel has some basic structural problems. The room itself didn't look bad, although it was a bit cluttered with too much furniture and not a lot of space around the beds....

Great room with a very comfortable four poster bed. All amenities at hand. Breakfast great. Staff very Attentive and friendly. Car parking difficult as the car park is quite tight.I have a large Merc but a mini or small family saloon would still find it tight.

My daughters treated me here to afternoon tea and a spa treatment. Although I can't comment on the prices I can say that both were just perfect. The staff were attentive, the massage I had was excellent and the afternoon tea was just right. My daughters were given free use of the pool which they both enjoyed. However they were...

Stayed at Canterbury hotel in family room (2 adults and 2 children). Clean room, fab shower, comfy beds. The swimming pool was warm and perfect for our young children to play in. Sauna was a lovely surprise too. Breakfast was delicious and served quickly. All the staff we met were friendly and helpful. A short walk into town for sightseeing...

A big warm and clean room. A nice swim and sauna before a big English breakfast. I also had fresh fruit and muffins. Located a short stroll from all the attractions. The on site parking was a huge bonus. We will be returning.

Upgraded room for small nominal charge and hotel was everything we hoped for. Character accommodation was beautiful and despite being cold on arrival this was rectified immediately. Service from check in to leaving was first class including breakfast and the opening of the bar late evening was appreciated so that a drink could be taken upstairs! The only disappointment was...

myself and two friends were going to a nearby beauty salon so called in here on the off chance of a coffee as there were no cafes close by. The staff were so welcoming and accommodating-the waitress went out of her way to make sure everything was as we wanted. It is a shame it is a little out of...
