lovely hotel right next to the city gate

Posted 16-Aug-2014
Pros: The room, breakfast, proximity to the centre of Canterbury, and staff were very efficient but friendly.
Location: On the doorstep of the town centre. Lots of individual shops but didn't have time to look further afield unfortunately.
Had a great overnight stay in this lovely hotel. The room was covered in wood panelling with a 4-poster bed, and was like stepping back 500 years to Elizabethan times; except there was a flat screen television attached to the wall! The full English breakfast was lovely, very well cooked and hot! I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Wonderful historic hotel steps from city central

Posted 10-Aug-2014
Experience old world charm in this quaint hotel. The room was comfortable and quiet, in a convenient location. A few minutes’ walk from Canterbury West train station and a quick walk to the theatre and to the main street of town with a plethora of shops, restaurants and historic sites like the Canterbury Cathedral. Easy walk to the ruins of Canterbury Castle. Also a good place for base camp to explore the surrounding area like Rochester, Faversham, and the seaside towns of Whitstable and Herne Bay, among others. Good buffet breakfast of the typical eggs, sausage, etc. There are probably other amenities that we didn't take advantage of! I would recommend this hotel, and I would stay here again.

Great location

Posted 15-Jul-2014
You couldn't ask for a better location - next to the Westgate on the picturesque side of Canterbury, a short walk from the cathedral. The car park (free for hotel guests) was very welcome and the staff were pleasant and helpful. We had a double room in an annex called the Woodmill at the back of the hotel; it was spacious, comfortable and had a wonderfully powerful shower. It was pretty characterless considering it was in what looks like an old building, which in turn is attached to a 14th century hotel, but then again we weren't paying boutique hotel prices. Breakfast was average - I can imagine it's better when the hotel is less busy.

interesting twin room on two levels

Posted 13-Jul-2014
Pros: excellent location with car parking
Cons: warn people about the layout of your twin rooms
Location: central location to visit the river, cathedral, museum, and local buildings.
It was a good stay with car parking included , very good. It was an interesting twin room as it was like a room on two floors with a bed on each level. very good choice of breakfast too, and very central for exploring the town.

Canterbury for one night

Posted 08-Jul-2014
Stayed one night before a cruise departing from Dover.our Room 25 on the first floor faced the sidewalk. Windows were sealed shut only ventilation was a fan and small vent in the wall. Not a good thing .Overall a bit old fashioned but adequate breakfast was fair location good for visiting the town

Old world charm in a perfect location

Posted 18-Jun-2014
Pros: The character and beams. Great to have free parking too!
Cons: The shower.
Location: Brilliant location, close to the city with the spectacular cathedral, and everything else this traditional city has to offer.
We only stayed for one night in the hotel annex called 'The Tap Room'. It was clean and comfortable, the only niggle was the broken shower head, which would have cost little to replace, and the room was a little noisy in the morning as it was close to the road. The breakfast was included and the staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel is brilliantly situated on the edge of this wonderful city and we would definitely stay again!
