Great bar, dire breakfast
Hotel itself is fine and everything we could have wanted at this price point. The bar was exceptional with a good selection of wines and beers & very reasonably priced cocktails.
The room was clean & comfortable but ours was right on the street and our night was disturbed until the not so early hours by the drunken antics of several of the city's student population right outside our window. It seemed that they had no sooner gone home than the council's road sweeping lorry turned up for no less than three passes.
Biggest disappointment was the breakfast. Billed as 'the best breakfast in Canterbury' we had high hopes but these were not realised. While the buffet was fine it took nearly 20 mins of trying to get someone's attention to order cooked breakfast. We were told a colleague would be right with us to take our order before, another 20 mins later, the original guy finally took our order. After a 30 min wait the food finally arrived - bacon anaemic, sausage pappy, eggs solid, plates cold and the vegetarian breakfast served with 2 rashers of bacon! I mean. come on guys - this is Catering 101. The only way this could be the best breakfast in Canterbury is if it's the ONLY breakfast in Canterbury and even then it would struggle.
