Last minute on-line booking resulted in an upgrade to a family room- the Cathedral room. Exactly like the pic on the site. The decor was cleverly done and the characteristic windows overlooked the cathedral. You won't get anything closer! The host, Andrew, was there to meet us and gave us a great welcome. It's probably one of the best bike...

My boyfriend came to visit, not knowing where to stay in Canterbury, he decided to book a room at the Sun Hotel. The location waas perfect, but everything else was so unfortunate. First, we could not find the entrance to the HOTEL. We asked nearby shops and none of them knew where to find it – THE HOTEL IS 600...

My husband and I accidently booked the wrong date with this hotels own website ( the booking went through as being the same day that we were booking it) and so we immediately tried to phone to amend it. However, after ten hours of answerphone messages , my husband finally spoke to the manager the next morning only to be...

A late booking, found ourselves in an insecure environment - unmanned for most of our stay, no recognisable reception, dirty. Finally at £175.00 per night overpriced for what was basically a rooming facility. We usually use and would recommend the Abode, just as central, great service, professional and between £108 and 130 per night - it was full. So concerned...

We stayed at this hotel for one night and found no problem with it. The service was great, we found that the staff could not do enough for you. One thing that my partner and I both loved was the bathroom in the Sun Room, complete with jacuzzi! I would say the hotel is not to everyone's taste.. If you...

Stayed one night in mid September and did not enjoy the experience. The location is great, but on a Saturday night the revellers may as well get in the room with you, it's so noisy. The entrance is difficult to find and the lobby was a work in progress. It's clearly an old house but seems to have managed to...

We stayed for 2 nights while attending a wedding. It is in the centre of Canterbury and excellent for sight seeing although expect some outside noise during the night (no fault of owner). We were upgraded for no extra cost to the Sun Room, which was a bonus. However, as the other comments there is no receptionist and no bar...

The location of this hotel is excellent - you can't argue with it. It's just opposite Canterbury cathedral. It's a quaint little tudor house, which is exactly where you want to stay whilst in Canterbury. Breakfast is good - although you do have to order in advance. The only issue is the service. It's slightly ad-hoc. And although when you...

From the outside you think how amazing it looks with its leaded windows etc! But this hotel is undeserving of the status of a hotel, it's more like a B & B. Therefore it is overpriced for the service & amenities it offers. The room was fine with all the basics, although you would struggle to get up the stairs...

“Rooms at the back of the building will be quieter. Rooms at the front of the building have a view out onto the cobbled street which the hotel sits on, which is quite a quaint scene.”
