If you want to experience a really old building, stay here! An ancient building with low lintels and beams so watch your head! It has character, sloping floors, walls n ceilings, a charming building. It has no lifts though and one must take staircases to reception, bedrooms, guest sittingroom, bar and dining room.

idéalement situé au pied de la cathédrale

Pros: le style architectural
Cons: ras
Location: Outre la cathédrale, tous les magasins sont à proximités ainsi que les loisirs : parcs, bibliothèque musée. L'université du Kent est accessible.
hôtel très accueillant donnant accès à toutes les activités à Canterbury
