Location of hotel very central but because it was in a side street it was so quiet. Couldn't fault the hotel at all. We opted for breakfast and although you can get better elsewhere it was absolutely fine. Would be better if they did fried or poached eggs instead of just scrambled. Also paid extra for WiFi and it was...

A clean and tidy Hotel with very comfortable beds....Its well situated close to the City Centre with its own parking. We didn't eat there so cannot comment upon the food. The staff were all friendly and helpful.

Stayed for two nights. Not got much to say about it. It was clean and staff were friendly enough. Room though was tiny! It was a double but really should have been a single! I know they have to make the most of what they have but you could barely move in room 115.

Tremendous value for money; spotlessly clean and spacious room; friendly, helpful staff; very well located for main Canterbury attractions. Only criticisms: lack of shelving in bedroom and shower area; no bedside tables/shelves, only totally useless little alcoves.

Stayed here for a 4x nights away with work due to location. If I had £80 for a room and could chose a travel lodge or something else, I'm always enclosed to chose option 2 as I'm not a fan of travel lodges at all. That said, the staff were great at this place & the rooms a good size...

Lovely hotel but dated due to being a listed building, meaning there is no sound proofing at all. I was there over the music festival weekend and lots of drunk noises coming from the room above made it impossible to sleep soundly. Staff were so nice, friendly and heplpful though.

Great central location, only a couple of minutes walk from the city centre. Friendly staff and a good selection of breakfast items on offer. My room was clean and well maintained but the building itself looks very 'tired' and is in need of a facelift. Unfortunately there is no lift and the internal corridors and doors were shabby and spoiled...
