Short stay
Andrew, the host, made us welcome from the start by sending a txt to ask what time we expected to check in, and when we arrived we were upgraded to the Charles Dickens room (Apparently Charles Dickens stayed in that room when he visited Canterbury). We only stayed one night and the weather was terrible when we first arrived, but there is a pub less than 50 meters away where we spent the afternoon. Also, due to Covid, the park and ride option for parking wasn't working, but we parked about 500 meters away in a council owned car park opposite St Augustines Abbey. Parking cost £2/hour during the day and £2 flat rate over night.

Upon arrival there is a note on the side of the door saying “please ring bell if no answer call this number” I had no answer at the door so decided to ring the the number and was told the owner would be 5 minutes. We confirmed 9:30 for breakfast and the next morning went down for breakfast at 9:00 thinking it wouldn’t be an issue and I’d be greeted by a welcoming face. However, nobody was there until 9:15. There was an open jam dish on the table and also the bbq was was expired with the date being in February 2019. After breakfast I was told for checkout to just leave my key on the side and to show myself out. I wasn’t asked how my stay was or if there was any issues. In the room apart from the hot water for the shower not working everything was great. I’d recommend the price per night being around £50.
