Charming and unique
The staff were wonderful - very informative e-mail in advance of the stay and so warm and welcoming, they went above and beyond to help. Perfect location in the centre of town next to the cathedral. The hotel is quirky, but very comfortable. You have to walk outside to get to some rooms (not a problem given you've come from outside, just to note). I stayed in a single room - the bed might be on the small side for the tall. Very good value for money overall. Would absolutely stay again.

Book this hotel!! Awesome location and great room. Wonderful view overlooking the cathedral. The shared bathrooms were nice and not bad at all. Never busy and never had a problem using the toilet or shower. Would stay here again. Croissants at breakfast were amazing. Fresh and hot out of the oven!!

Right in the heart of Canterbury
Used this place as a meet-up with family. Location is perfect, walking distance from all you need including Canterbury West train station with its high speed trains to London.
