We stayed at the Abode for a Friday evening date night special offer. The hotel room was beautifully decorated with a luxurious feel to it and the hotel itself is also very well presented. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the staff were warm and welcoming. The hotel is situated in the heart of Canterbury with everything you...

We visited at the weekend for our anniversary. We had a nice greeting when we checked in and had the nice touch of an anniversary card and balloon in our room. The room was comfortable and in a great location to be in town immediately. We had a problem with hot water in the morning, however we were compensated for...

Nice hotel in the middle of Canterbury, a warm reception from front of house who upgraded us to a suite. The room was great, really comfortable and enjoyable. We enjoyed afternoon team in the bar but breakfast was a disappointment as service was slow, the plates were cold and the dull english was tepid at best. Overall though we had...

We came to Canterbury especially to go to the County Restaurant in this hotel and so decided to stay at the Abode. We wanted an upgrade but they were all fully booked so we stayed in a "comfortable" room which was the cheapest. I asked for a nice room as it was our 20th anniversary and was told I would...

The hotel was central, clean, hospitable and staff couldn't do enough to accommodate us. The champagne bar was delightful with its open fire and warm staff. We will be back! The only thing lacking was food in the bar area, better vegetarian options and the noisy heater in our room which disrupted our sleep. However, minor things in the whole...

Received a warm, efficient greeting at reception. Even though a twin room was requested for my mother and me, the room was made up with king size bed, that, to be fair was re jigged later that day. As ever, the rooms are very clean, bed comfortable although a request for a feather pillow wasn't met. The breakfast was good...

We stay in the area often, visiting my in-laws and we've always joked that one day we's treat ourselves to a night at Abode instead of the budget nationwide hotel chain where we usually stay. Give me the budget nationwide hotel chain any day. I don't even know where to start. We stayed over the Christmas period and it was...

Excellent Room. Car park is a building site which is charged at £12 for the night. Did not use the restaurant on this occasion, but it is very good, albeit 'Pretty Food' No pool available, but we didn't want this anyway

Very nice hotel but rather expensive staying on my own. I was also told it was more expensive because of Valentines Day. The location is excellent and very near the Cathedral, where I was spending the week.

Thank you for your comments, I am pleased that you had an enjoyable stay. We do set the price based on the demand, Valentines is one of the busier nights. Best wishes Declan
