Great place to stay

Posted 07-Jul-2017
Pros: The staff were so friendly and the location perfect
Location: The Cathedral is within a 2 minute walk, the cobble stones streets are right out side the door and you must take a punt tour of the river
The hotel was in a fabulous location right in the heart of the city. It was a lovely boutique hotel with a nice bar and great breakfasts. The staff were so friendly and any question or request was never too much for them. The place was spotless too!

Day trip to Canterbury

Posted 30-Jun-2017
Pros: Location great, staff wonderful & excellent facilities.
Location: In the heart of Canterbury, what more can you wish for...
Overall, the hotel was excellent. Hotel situated in centre of town, superb staff & great facilities. One minor problem was with our bathroom tap. Water pressure was way to high causing spillage when used.

Not if it's hot

Posted 20-May-2017
Pros: Peacefull
Cons: Couldn't use safe as it was on floor - no use to elderly
Location: Good bus services
Two hot days causing air con to be used. Went to toilet where there was a large puddle of water, sat on the loo and had water dripping on head. Reported twice that day but nothing was due to be done 'till the day I left. Disappointing

Brilliant hotel and brilliant location

Posted 17-May-2017
Cons: This is an old building, renovated to a high standard however, sound-proofing is non existent - be prepared to hear the doors and the room adjacent.
I am always careful when choosing a suitable get away and did my research on this hotel too, but was pleasantly surprised when it all came to fruition - on all fronts. The hotel reception staff were very helpful and remembered which room we were staying in. Parking is reasonable considering it's private to the hotel and therefore more secure than public car parks (which are a stones throw should their's be full). Lovely communal relaxing sofa areas to enjoy deciding where to eat or simply a drink to unwind after a busy sight-seeing day. Leave the front doors and you're bang in the middle of the pedestrianised center ready to explore the best of Canterbury from a gentle punt on the river to the cathedral, which is free after 5pm on most days. Fab hotel and would return or recommend.

A Classic Refined Pleasure

Posted 15-May-2017
Pros: Staff was wonderful, always accommodating and friendly.
Cons: Cold breakfast was alright, very minimal, more focused on quality rather than quantity and variety of selections.
Location: Explore the history and beauty of the capital of the garden that is Kent. Wander the high street shops. Visit Dover castle overlooking the channel.
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.
