Very good 8.0
Catch up in Canterbury
Beautiful old building, our room was The Marlow, very clean and tidy with a four poster bed. Unfortunately, the bed was not that comfortable. Staff were nice and the breakfast was good. All in all a nice place to stay.

Reasonable stay
Stayed for two nights over the new year. Hotel was clean and provided a buffet breakfast and usual full english options. The restaurant was not operational and we intended to go out in the evenings anyway. We were in room one, which has a huge double bed and a view over the front to the theatre opposite, but being right above reception at the front there was some noise around 6 am when night staff shift change and last thing at night when locking up. Overall an ok place.

Old World Charm with a Great location
Location is very central and service is great (especially the breakfast). This is a 400 year old building so be prepared for tight winding staircases and rooms that are a bit cramped. Overall, if you're looking for a bit of character rather than modern luxury, this is well worth a try.
