We stayed at the Innkeepers Lodge Canterbury using Virgin vouchers wed been given, a really lovely atmosphere. Very friendly staff, and very helpful. We got the bus from round the corner into Canterbury and could not fault it. Bedrooms are a bit tired but we enjoyed our stay.

Perfect for our short break. Ideally located next door to park and ride facilities. We just jumped on the bus which literally took a few minutes to Canterbury city centre. Warm and cosy atmosphere, staff friendly and accommodating, we were well looked after by Enda. Our room was very nice, clean and well presented. Good food and wine menu, reasonably...

Stayed here for a business trip with a group of 5 people and were happy with the stay. We arrived about 8:30pm after a long trip from the midlands and greeted by a very funny gentleman who checked us all in and showed us to our rooms. The rooms were very clean and presentable. Quite warm and stuffy though as...

Easy to find and with a large car park, this is situated on the outskirts of Canterbury at the junction of the Old Dover Road and the New Dover Road. Traffic in the centre of Canterbury is a nightmare, but there are plenty of buses on each of the two roads in to town. The welcome was friendly and helpful...

Arrival and registration was smooth and friendly. We were given a brief tour of the dining arrangements for breakfast, then shown to our room. Perfectly sized room, close to town, but just outside the congestion and traffic downtown! Large, off-street parking lot with easy, safe egress. The restaurant/pub had a balanced menu of fish, fowl and beef/lamb. We chose the...

Stayed here for 2 nights to attend a wedding. The location is excellent being just outside Canterbury.

We were attending a wedding at Winter Barn, when booking asked if this was close to the venue, we were told it was a 5 minute walk but it wasn't. It was a £10 taxi ride. But our twin room was adequate for 1 night. Luckily we were allowed into the room at mid- day, check in normally is 3pm.

We stayed here before travelling from Dover to Calais staying in room 3. We were initially quite impressed considering the price paid as it was a big clean room (if a little tired) and the staff were very welcoming and friendly... However we both had a terrible nights sleep. The room was very hot and we couldn't open a window...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Of all the hotels in Canterbury, few have as many stories to tell as this historic lodge, which has been providing a warm welcome to travellers for almost three centuries.With nine comfy rooms and its own cosy pub serving a menu of hearty, freshly cooked food, it's the perfect place to enjoy some rest and relaxation. Although there's so much to see and do you won't want to put your feet up for too long.Canterbury is one of England's most beautiful cities, and its jewel in the crown is Canterbury Cathedral, which is a pleasant half-hour stroll from the lodge, or just five minutes by car. You can also explore the intriguing shops of King's Mile, take a ghost tour, visit Canterbury University or take a summer boat-trip along the River Stour.There's plenty to keep you busy further afield in Kent, like wildlife spotting in Blean Woods or a day at the seaside in Herne Bay or Whitstable. ... more   less
