We used this Hotel for a seminar. The staff were helpful and polite. The food was very good with a wide choice of sandwiches, crisps, fresh vegetables with dip, fruit pieces, or biscuits with tea coffee water or orange juice.

I was there to see some cricket. Easy walk to ground, easy walk to town. The food was always good whether in restaurant or bar. Could park right by the entrance, but didn't touch my car for the four days I was there. Very relaxed with helpful and friendly staff. Nothing at all to complain about, everything in room worked...

My parents, myself & Maisie the French Bulldog stayed for 2 nights, May 5th & 6th. The old building is beautiful & the old, much used furniture in the bar & lounge are in keeping with the decor. The small grass area at the front of the building is ideal for small doggie runs. I'm please to say that all...

Stayed in executive room, comfortable and decent size. Welcoming staff and a good breakfast. Lovely setting in spacious grounds. Quite an old building and plumbing a little noisy at times. Doors between corridors have a kick, have to be careful.

We have stayed here before on our way to the Channel tunnel. The parking right outside the hotel is perfect. It is quiet as it is set off the road and they have pleasant gardens to wander around. Also it is pet friendly. The bar area is good and serve some nice wines. Did not eat here as we were...

Positives: +polite and friendly reception staff that took the time to make sure that the trip was a good one. +clean rooms and public areas. +quiet location; although a busy road is nearby the hotel is set far back enough for it not to intrude. +The breakfast (if ordered off the blue menu) is very good and the cold buffet...

Very close to the centre - does not take long at all to walk into Canterbury to where the cultural and shopping venues are situated. The room I stayed in was clean and comfortable. The interior of the hotel and the room was quaint and old fashioned. Ye olde England must appeal to tourists, and I quite enjoyed the vibe...

This hotel is all about the staff - they were extremely hard working, friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. Despite many of them being quite young, their professionalism was top class at all times. The hotel itself was undergoing some updating during our stay but nothing disruptive - would I stay again? - absolutely!

As a 3 stars hotel we didn't expect this much. The room was nice and clean, big enough for 4 people and the bathroom had a good size bath-tube. We paid also for having breakfast and we were very satisfied. English breakfast and Mediterranean breakfast as a buffet were very welcome. 5 star rating as a 3 stars hotel !

Thank you for your review. Delighted to read you enjoyed your recent 3 night stay with us. The restaurant does get busy at peak times, especially at weekends, we always advise guests wishing to have a more relaxed breakfast to come down during the quieter times. It is always very difficult to judge with regards to room temperatures as everyone's...
