We booked an executive room here for two nights, and could have stayed a lot longer! The room and the bed were most comfortable and we were able to relax totally. (Our only minor disappointment was that we had only one hand towel and one flannel between two!, though we did have two bath towels. Maybe this was a mistake??) We ate dinner on both evenings in the Lake Restaurant, and found the choice of meals and the quality of the food excellent. We really appreciated the breakfast, too, including a great variety of fresh fruit and a good choice of cooked food. The staff were all most helpful, in particular the receptionist who helped us with our trip into Canterbury and gave us excellent advice. She also very kindly carried our (heavy!) suitcase up two flights of stairs for us! We will definitely make a return visit!

We visited the hotel last night, for a Jersey Boys tribute with 3 course dinner included situated in the Heritage Room. The room was pleasant enough for the function, the dance floor seemed a little small but perfectly adequate. The meal was awful, the starters of goats cheese on a crouton, (the crouton was wet and soggy and hard to cut), The chicken was a dry, tasteless lump and the spotted dick was like cardboard with a weak custard. But the worst of the night was the entertainment, the Jersey Boys act was excellent what we saw as it was on for 30 mins with a couple of extra songs. As the dinner seemed to run over time the waiting staff were walking back and forth whilst the act was on, so the little time they were on we couldn't see. The night seemed to go on forever and people left long before the end as there was nothing to watch. It would have been good to know it was only a short act as I doubt we would have booked or we would have planned for a shorter evening i.e. ordered taxi to pick us up earlier

This was my second stay in this hotel, but first time I arrived late in the night and left in the morning, so only this time I had chance to see the hotel, park and try the bar - everything great.

Apart from restaurant and bar, you can find spa in the hotel - looks very nice, but I didn't have enough time to try.. Breakfast was good, cooked breakfast (really wide choice) available. Staff was also very nice and helpful.

We just returned from a 2night stay.Staff were all lovely and went the extra mile to make our stay special (Thanks to Jack for the chocolate biscuits!) We stayed in a Deluxe room that was just perfect, food in the restaurant was great, lovely service. And the spa was really clean and had everything you need and more. We will be back …. Thanks to everyone working at this great hotel

Had a really lovely time. Beautiful room (room 18), really comfy (and huge) bed. Ordered breakfast to room which was fab. Spa lovely. Treatment wonderful. Only negative was our bath tap broke when husband was turning the bath on which meant we couldn't have a bath. This was disappointing as we booked this room in particular as it had a jacuzzi bath. But the staff did immediately send someone up to try and fix it without success. Other than the lack of a bath, we had a wonderful time and will definitely book to come again.
