The Cornerhouse is perfect down to every little detail. Unless you are looking for a generic standardised hotel room with no character. This place has everything. Beautiful historic character with alot of original features. If you come to Canterbury for a visit and want to feel like you are really here this is the place. The welcome from the manager / owner was wonderful and very friendly. The rooms are so beautiful and comfortable. We stayed in the Tourtel room, the author of Rupert the bear. Super clean, super comfortable. A lovely spacious bathroom. Exposed beams and iron fireplace creates a wonderful atmosphere and felt very homely. High quality hand wash, body wash and teas and coffees add to the great attention to detail. Breakfast in bed too due to Covid!
The location is great, a short stroll into town. Yes its a main road but it didn't bother us at all. I slept like a baby in the very comfortable bed.
This place is perfect and we intend to return. I highly recommend

Having stayed at the sister hotel in Minster, it wasn’t a difficult decision to choose the Cornerhouse for our stay in Canterbury. We chose the Tourtel Room and were not disappointed. There is a lovely king size bed, large spacious bathroom as well as the trademark uneven floor. Lovely fireplace and sitting area too, we were very comfortable there. Breakfast is served to your room and we took the opportunity of eating dinner in the restaurant, which was excellent.

The hotel is on a busy road but the management have even thought of that and provide a pack of earplugs each just in case - I slept really well.

If you like your hotels quirky, individual and different from the standard format then look no further, this hotel is a delight.

Corner House is an an excellent location for walkers, since it’s within a short walking distance to the town centre. The room I stayed in was extremely clean and very comfortable! They had air-conditioning, which is very helpful during the Summer. The bathroom and bedroom were also a very good size, considering how most of the hotels in England have considerably small rooms due to space constraints. The breakfast gets served to your room every morning, and the croissants, bread, granola and yoghurt are delicious! The staff are also very helpful and friendly, and they made me feel very welcomed. If you get the chance to, definitely have lunch or dinner at the restaurant! The food is extremely fresh and the chef is very skilled!

We only stayed for 1 night and when we arrived we were a little concerned about the building being on a main road, which you can here all night. We stayed in the Attick room which has very low beams and doorways, we both banged our heads a few times (were 5ft 9 and 6ft) even with the mind your head signs. The bed is small and the mattress was too firm for us. The carpet had dark stains and the sink isn't the cleanest. Based on the reviews and pictures of the room it seemed reasonable at £115 for a night but comparing this to others we have stayed in this now seems a little expensive. The bath was a nice touch but be prepared this is where the shower is too. The stairs heading to the room were crooked and difficult to walk up. If you'd like to stay in an old building out of the centre, give it a go. Its just not for us.

We had a one night stay in the Dickens Room and ate in the restaurant. The staff are wonderful, the manager was lovely and the food is just exceptional!! Highly recommended if you’re a vegetarian as they really put thought and effort into their options.

Great selection of bits brought to your room for breakfast, the home made treacle bread toast is a particular highlight.

I know some people complained about the road noise, but a few glasses of wine and a full belly meant we slept right the way through, but ear plugs are supplied by the CH if you need them.

Will definitely be visiting again!!

Lovely place situated in the heart of Canterbury but big big failure was the non existent hot breakfast. What a big big let down for a place that promotes the owners progress through his life as a chef with his book recipes only to serve us a boring breakfast that was so disappointing that its a failure for an establishment like this that promotes good food and after eating there the night before It was a lovely place that served excellent produce thar we were both looking forward to a lovely cooked breakfast that never materialised.

Parking is charged at the back of the hotel but be careful with the 24 hour charges because that doesn't exist and you'll end up with a £25 fine I'd paid within a certain time.

Overall lovely stay but for Christ sake chef Cook a hot breakfast for your customers or at least tell them you don't serve hot breakfasts and then customers like ourselves can choose to make a decision to find a room that does serve an hot breakfast and if you did do that I think you'd have more guests returning.

I booked for one night for my birthday weekend. We were welcomed in from the rain by extremely friendly staff, everything was very covid secure. We stayed in the Becket Room which was nicely apart from the rest of the building so it felt like we had the place to ourselves. It was very clean and cosy and the room had a nice view over looking the garden. Breakfast in the morning was very tasty; pan au chocolate, granola, yogurt and treacle toast. I would definitely recommend for a weekend break as the location is very central, the city center is less than 500 yards away, it is very clean and comfortable, and they very thoughtful staff. I would definitely stay again. Thank you!

Stayed at Corner House Canterbury as a last minute booking. Great location, spacious and comfortable room with everything we needed. Delicious morning breakfast - homemade granola, toast and pain au chocolate, delivered to our door at 8:30 as promised. Perhaps tripped up on the car parking - you can get a voucher at reception which is better value than the pay & display in the car park itself. Also should have prebooked the restaurant downstairs as it was fully booked on arrival. This was not a problem though - plenty of eateries within walkable distance. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

We stayed three nigts atCorner House Canterbury and ate there twice. The hotel room was large and nicely decorated. It was at the back of the building so very little road noise. The building is old, so very little is straight and level but this definitely adds to the character.
Nothing old about the food. Really good Fine Dining that is well presented and tastes wonderful. Definitely would recommend it.

Good facilities. Room was clean with mod cons e.g. swipe card door, fridge in room, decent shower etc. Well presented and clean throughout.

Unfortunately a lot of noise on stay. We purposely picked Chaucer room as had read quieter at back of building. We are both used to noise living in a city centre but unfortunately we were still awoken by it

Could have forgiven that but the building noise, not mentioned anywhere on website or booking, was disappointing. We checked in and whilst enjoying our bubbly in room found a builder stationed outside our window on the first floor which was slightly embarassing.

Next morning drilling and similar started before 9am. We read later the restaurant is being extended but is a shame they don't warn you of this work on booking

Continental breakfast served to room and decent - just makes you slightly on edge awaiting a knock on the door sometime around 8.30am so you can't relax waking up. In our instance a conversation was instigated despite my partner clearly being in their underpants and breakfast offered to he dropped in the room while I was sat in bed. Kind but slightly intrusive.

Overall room facilities good but bizarre they don't serve a proper breakfast in such a well regarded restaurant.

Noise levels beyond what we felt tolerable especially building work and builders outside the window not declared at booking.

Breakfast to the room good effort but strange in the context.

Pleasant stay but wouldn't choose again. Impersonal experience, barely saw them unfortunately.

How is the Attic room ? smaller than the other ones? How is the "Chaucer suite", which is not mentioned on this site?
