The room was beautiful with lots of luxury, comfort and space. The communal parts of the hotel were very nice and well kept and the staff were very helpful. There is a... More

I only stayed at the Abode in Canterbury for one night, arriving at 11.00pm on a Tuesday. Not only was there a punctual and warm welcome at reception, but the Manager had already opened the secure car park for me almost before I had checked in. My pre-ordered parking space was reserved in my name and the bar was still... More

The staff here are absolutely fantastic, so positive and friendly and super helpful. Exceptional customer service and probably one of the warmest welcomes to a hotel that I have ever received. The hotel is very nicely decorated and very clean. The hairdryer is also better than the average hotel offering. Breakfast was quite good. Unfortunately that's where my positive comments... More
