I was invited to join colleagues at a Spa Day and following on from that an evening dinner at the hotel. Initially I thought I would go just for the treatments and come home rather than stay for the dinner, followed by a "Life's too Short" moment, so I decided to stay over and enjoy the company. I was soooooo glad I did. From the initial cocooning in the health club, the treatments, the light lunch seamlessly passing over to the hotel itself, booking in, drinks at the bar to the formal dinner - Wonderful. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble. The staff were obliging never 'in your face' but appeared as if by magic, just when you wanted to top up your glass, or have a carafe of water to go with your wine. They were pleasant to talk to when waiting for others and full of suggestions for local outings as well.
The room and general facilities were very good but the food was hit and miss. We ate at the Pavilion restaurant and to be honest the food and service was nothing special. The buffet breakfast was disappointing whereas the cooked breakfast was superb and one of the best I've had. Overall the room was clean and well provided for but there were stains on the carpet and one of the taps was broken. So overall good housekeeping but in need of some updating.

We spent two nights at the hotel and really enjoyed our stay. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the food was beautifully prepared and presented. If we return to Kent for another break we will definitely stay here.
Forgot to mention the pool - loved it!

"Lovely hotel close to wedding venue (The Orangery)"
We only had one night at this hotel which was a shame as it was a lovely place and plenty of facilities. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and very quiet. Staff at reception were friendly and efficient. We would highly recommend it to others for a stay in the area and for them to spend a couple of nights!
last minute decision to visit canterbury for the weekend, we didn't have much time to look around for hotels online so booked the abode as it seemed quite Central, and it really is in the middle of the town! Couldn't be better placed, the staff are all polite and professional, hotel is very nicely decorated with an upmarket feel, would book again if I visited canterbury in the future.
