A Classic Refined Pleasure
After spending 6 years living in Canterbury through multiple degree programs I opted to stay at the Abode for a total of 7 nights over two separate trips in two weeks. The hotels stands on Canterbury's high street which is incredible for experiencing the city and acts as a perfect base for everything the city and Kent has to offer. The hotels rustic charm adds to it's elegance as the standout luxury hotel in the city. The staff was incredible, always helpful and accommodating. I had paid the 10GBP for the breakfast on the first night to see what was offered but the selection of finer foods is more tailored for the individual business traveler and wasn't anything to write home about. It must be said that you must be prepared for the potential noise from the street particularly if you have a room overlooking the high street. Canterbury is primarily a student town with an active nightlife for tourists and locals. For some travelers it may be a nuisance, however regardless of where you stay in the city, you will experience this. Outside of that, it was wonderful all around. I would stay here again based on the location, the staff, and the beauty of Canterbury's finest hotel.
