What a brilliant stay! We took up one of their offers which was £99 including breakfast and dinner. Upon arrival we were told that we had been upgraded to one of their most enviable rooms which was big, had a a very comfy sucker kingsize bed, a free standing bath and a wet room. We even got a free turn down service, robes, and a basket full of goodies- brilliant!
The staff here are lovely. They leave no stone unturned and are really personable. Nothing was too much for them to do. I had some special requirements which was taken into consideration in every facility we used. I didn't have to mention it once. The food was amazing. We were full every night and looked forward to our next meals. To top it off the location was great too.
Despite being in the hub if Canterbury , the hotel was quite inside, so our stay was peaceful. And yes there is a car perk and it's not far way, it's a simple 2 minute walk.
Our stay was So good that we were planning our return before we left. I'd highly recommend this hotel.
My only tip would be call the hotel up before booking on external websites as they have their own offers which aren't promoted on travel websites and always ask for the upgrade!
