I stayed at the annex to this hotel with 3 friends in April 2012. We had 2 twin bedded rooms which were fantastic value at £60 each a night. This entitled us to a free breakfast in the 4 star part of the hotel and unlimited visits to the cathedral as well as free parking in the centre of Canterbury. The staff were really helpful and very friendly. Each night they chilled our bottle of wine and let us put our nibbles in their fridge. They helped us locate restaurants we wanted to visit and showed us round the hotel so we knew where to find the gardens and the library. It felt very special ringing the bell each evening at the big wooden door leading into the Cathedral compound after we had gone out for a meal and showing our admittance passes. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thought the hotel was really lovely.

Room Tip: The rooms in the annex are brilliant value for money and when we looked at the more expensive rooms in the main hotel the only difference seemed to be that the carpets were a little less tired.

My partner and I stayed at the Cathedral Lodge in Canterbury, this last weekend (Friday 20th - Sunday 22nd April 2012). The room was large, clean and comfortable. It was very affordable and the breakfast they provided was excellent. The only critism was the matresses were quite soft, and we were situated at the back of the Burgate building, thus we could hear every type of noise from the shops and bars from that part of town. This is not the lodges fault, just have to bear that in mind when booking a city centre hotel. On a positive note it was really conviently situated to all parts of the attractions of the city, and with your stay you got free access to the Cathedral, and discounts and some restaurants. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Canterbury. The hotel was value for money, anad the staff were friendly, polite and helpful. If we plan another night/weekend in Canterbury again, we would definately be booking a room at the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge.

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of your stay here at Canterbury Cathedral Lodge. I was very pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your stay and that you felt it represented good value for money. We are due to commence a refurbishment programme in our value rooms within the next three months and I hope the mattress selection may be more to your taste for any future visits you might make.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel soon.

We have no complaints at all and found the lodge to be very good value but for one problem - the bed matresses !

They are so soft they provide hardly any support whatsoever. We stayed 2 nights - first night in a double bed which could have doubled as a trampoline ! The second night we had 2 single beds but again the matresses were so soft we would have been more comfortable on the floor !

When we discussed the matter with a very polite receptionist we were informed that the matresses had only been recently renewed so unfortunately we won't be back until they are changed to something more comfortable.
Why didn't the lodge management choose something in between ? i.e.medium/soft ?

AS most of our fellow guests were ' of a certain maturity' We are sure this problem would have been common to most.

WE would love to stay again but a good nights sleep is essential to happy sightseeing.

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for taking the time to pass on your constructive comments following your stay here at Canterbury Cathedral Lodge. We are currently in the process of replacing our mattresses and have tried to ensure we have selected a mattress which appeals to a broad range of tastes. If you would like to contact me directly and let me know which rooms you stayed in during your visit, I will be more than happy to advise if these rooms have indeed had a new mattress.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

Most rooms seem to be oriented to give clear view of Cathedral, nice quiet oasis to return to.

Perfect poached eggs in the breakfast with a large range of other foods in the buffet, helpful staff.

Room Tip: The staff will help you get a cathedral view, I think most of the rooms have one.
