Stayed here on a recent visit to Canterbury.
Booked online a few weeks before.
Girls on front desk fantastic - friendly, efficient, helpful.
Managed to accomodate me in the main Hotel car park as I requested beforehand. Good manner and keen to accommodate needs.
Room very spacious, upgraded to a desireable for a bit more. Clean, comfortable, good facilities (phone/wardrobe/tv/desk) and nice big bed.
Location slap bang in the middle of the city centre - walk out the front door and you're in the middle of town.
24 hour room service - great for late munchers...!
Decided to order breakfast at 9am and took well over an hour to arrive, had to chase up on the phone twice. Paid just shy of £14 for a room service delivered breakfast - definitely not worth it at all. Basic ingredients massively overpriced - sausage baguette, fruit, yoghurt and tea... Walk out the front door and there are cafes/bars with reasonable and much better standards of breakfast for less than half the price.
My room was VERY noisy all night - stayed in a room next to the lift and you can hear it constantly going up and down all night long, from the whirring of movement and the doors opening no matter that floor the lift was stopped at. I am usually quite acceptable to noise levels but the lift was so loud it was unpleasant.
In a nutshell?
Very sheek and tries to stand out as being a bit special but minor attention to detail in some areas needs improving IE soundproofing of rooms in noisy environments, breakfast standards/value.
For £120 it was a bit frustrating to be given a noisy room.
Expensive but worth it if you fancy a splurge...
