Thank you for the great review. Since all of our units are individually owned, we have been working with our owners to encourage owners to update their units. Some of the units have received kitchen face-lifts and new flooring. Please let us know should you book again and we can try to get you into one of those units.

Hotel has everything needed for a comfortable family get-away. Helpful and friendly staff. The two bedroom had plenty of space for kids and adults. Very clean. Kids loved the pool. We didn't have a dog with us but others did and were responsible with their pets, which we appreciated.

We've been at Canterbury a couple of times now - once with kids in a 2 bedroom unit and the last visit was just the 2 of us in a 1 bedroom unit. The rooms are well maintained and comfortably furnished and the staff is very friendly and helpful! The rooms we have stayed in seem more like apartments instead...

Really nice room, friendly staff, dogs welcome. The bed was very comfortable and the bedding was nice. We plan on returning and spending more time relaxing! I was impressed with how quiet our stay was, especially during Spring Break and no vacancy!
