Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Room has all the amenities: iron, ironing board, hair dryer, lots of towels, chairs, table, desk, arm chair, comfortable bedding and pillows, air conditioning, free wifi. Function rooms look great.

What an incredibly disappointing stay. Check in dour, restaurant closed ( due to Covid) is that a thing anymore? Almost impossible to get a drink from the bar also. Room smelt of smoke despite clear signs saying no smoking. Though in fairness they were clean and comfortable. Breakfast (continental) was akin to something that would be served in eastern Europe in the mid 1970's. Meager, unloved and sparse. Let's not mention the dour, helpful and absent waitress. A hunger games tussle ensued over the last acai yoghurt and topped off the whole comedic stay.

Reception staff over our two day stay were sullen and unwelcoming, we were made to feel an inconvenience. Despite only seeing one other room in use on our wing of the upper floor, ours was at the end above the convention room, where four sessions were held over the two days for teenage model wannabes. We were woken by booming music that continued at various times over the two days. They had no ante rooms for the large numbers of teenagers to change and do make-up between sessions; they blocked the lift foyer area where we were coming and going plus the small guests bathroom along from reception. I needed to use that while waiting at reception for a taxi - couldn’t get in the door past teenagers jostling for mirror access with makeup containers all over the sinks. Poorly organised and disrespectful for the actual guests staying there.

Stayed from Friday evening for the weekend was a lovely experience. I felt like a queen staying there. Room was great except for being a bit stuffy. Staff were very pleasant and accommodating food was fit for a queen. Only fault I would have is when asked how to use coffee machine staff did not no how to use and outside could do with some repairs. But highly recommend for somewhere to stay and would definitely stay there again. Thanks to all at Caturbury International Hotel.

I spend a lot of time staying here. It is a fantastic hotel with a great range of accomodation. The staff, led by Ugo are second to none. Friendly, helpful and they make your stay awesome. There are also fantastic conference facilities that we use very regularly. Great catering and everything you need to facilitate a great conference. The hotel is really well located and access to the city is convenient. Highly recommended. Well done Ugo. Cheers. Gregg

Looking for a nice place to have Sunday lunch? Try this place. Nice furniture, good food, friendly staff, nice wine. We dined here last Sunday. It was quiet but they had just finished serving a large group at a function. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal. I had barramundi and my husband had lamb shank. Both well presented and cooked well.

I stayed here for three weeks on business, the rooms are very nice and the beds are comfortable. The staff are professional and friendly. The menu is a little limited for such a long stay but all the food was nicely prepared and tasty. I'd definitely stay here again. Very professional outfit.

Location is what it is, they can't do anything about that; it was convenient for me. However, the hotel is great to stay in - from first welcome at the front desk. The public areas start with classically-inspired decor, makes you feel it's a special place, then in your room you'll find this continues. This was my 2nd time here, and it didn't disappoint. The room was spacious, had a sitting nook w/ 2 nice easy chairs, comfortable bed, quality furniture, beautifully framed classical artwork on the walls (lots), a nice desk & chair, fridge & amenities concealed in a nice cabinet - very quality. Beautiful wall mirror, great dimmable lighting. The bathroom had a large jacuzzi tub, separate shower, and good space. Good amenities there, too. It was quiet, and I lacked for nothing. Good WIFI. Excellent restaurant. For this price-point, I think you'll be hard-pressed to find a higher quality hotel. I look forward to my next stay very much. Do I have anything negative to say to make this review sound more "realistic"? I'm trying... Well, it is an older place, but they've redecorated and kept it up, so it's hard to tell. Good enough?
