Breakfast was really lovely and staff were really helpful. Absolute bargain and right in city so perfect for a night away in a really convenient location. We travelled by train and... More

We have just spent 2 nights at The Falstaff, what a wonderful hotel. Rooms lovely and big, comfy bed and so cosy, all in keeping with the building. The bar down stairs is more modern and trendy, cocktails etc busy on a Tuesday and Wednesday night and seems the place to be. No Restaurant at the hotel but lovely breakfast.... More

I bought a voucher for my mum for mother's day for afternoon tea. The incompetent staff member printed the wrong date on it. I went back in 1 week later to point out the wrong date. The incompetent staff said it would not be a problem. Today I took my mum in to use the voucher. They refused to take... More

We have stayed twice at the Falstaff, once in summer and once in winter; we love it for its friendly staff, handy car park (and also near the railway station), fantastic bar, copious breakfast, and brilliant location. Given the age of the property the rooms are good - quiet, spacious and clean (we stayed for both visits in the old... More

The location of this hotel is great, it's not even a minutes walk to the main shops, and about five minutes to the cathedral, however it is on a main road that has traffic until about 10pm and starts up again in the morning, although I'm a heavy sleeper so this didn't bother me, but if youre woken easily, depending...

Our initial impression of the hotel was very good, with parking onsite and a great location. We arrived early and were able to park the car and start our shopping trip. When we checked into our rooms (room 1 and 2 , cosy doubles) we found everything really clean, the bathroom was sparkling. The room was quite small, which we... More

Situated next to the West Gate about a 10 minute walk from the Cathedral and near to a large number of eating places. We had requested and been booked into a room in the 'quiet' zone which was shown as room 9 (at the rear of the hotel) on the booking card. However, we were relocated to room 18 above... More

The hotel was very conveniently situated for a visit to the theatre, it was just outside the city walls within easy walking distance of the city centre. We received a warm welcome and the reception, bar and sitting area were clean, modern. The staff were helpful and service was good. The hotel dated back to the early 15th century. Full... More

We came here one afternoon to try out their cocktail menu. There wasn't many drinks on the menu that took my fancy but the barman was more than happy to make a tailor made cocktail to my taste. I have visited the falstaff a couple of times and the staff here have always been fantastic, they're really friendly. The atmosphere... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just metres from Canterbury's medieval West Gate, this charming building dates back to 1403. A former coaching inn, it offers free WiFi and free parking, 2 minutes' walk from the city centre. The Falstaff still retains many original features, including oak beams and an open log fire. Each room has a TV for guests to use, and facilities for making tea and coffee. The hotel offers a cooked to order full English breakfast as well as self service buffet option. The bar offers a range of wines and variety of exclusive cocktails. Canterbury West Rail Station is a 3-minute walk from the building. The city's spectacular Norman cathedral can be reached in less than 10 minutes on foot. ... more   less
