Decor a bit dated but absolutely lovely hotel, nothing was too much effort and everyone was incredibly helpful and nice. Breakfast a bit expensive for what was available but nicely cooked. Clientele were toward the older but this meant our sore headed party could have breakfast in relative quiet! My room was lovely and my request for a cot was immediately fulfilled. Again nothing too much for the team. Would definitely stay again.

Good location - near to city centre

Good location within 25 minutes walk to city centre. Hotel has parking which is a bonus. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was excellent. Only one criticism that the jacuzzi bath had a shower you could hold but no proper shower. Not everyone wants a bath so an addition of a proper shower would be better. It is difficult to have a shower holding the shower head in your hands! Breakfast was very good and freshly cooked to order. Shame the restaurant is in a room with no windows. Could do with relocating. Hotel public areas are in need of redecoration but understand a big refurbishment is about to take place. All in all an enjoyable two night stay.

Ihastuttava englantilainen hotelli rauhallisella paikalla ja lähellä keskustaa. Hyvä, mutta kallis oma ravintola. Meluisa mutta toimiva ilmastointi. Äänet huoneista kuuluu toisiin huoneisiin. Kivan kokoinen huone Hyvä hintalaatusuhde.

Traumhaft gelegenes Hotel

Das Hotel liegt in einem kleinen Park am Rande von Canterbury und wir fühlten uns sofort zuhause. Die Zimmer sind hübsch gestaltet und sauber, das Personal sehr freundlich und auch das Nachtessen, welches wir einmal im Hotel einnahmen, war superlecker. Zu Fuss erreicht man die Innenstadt in 5 Minuten. Die 3 Tage waren wie ein kleiner Traum, zumal auch die Umgebung in dieser Ecke von England ein echtes Highlight ist. Wir kommen gerne wieder!
