Lovely characterfilled hotel in the centre of town

Pros: Character, staff, facilities
Location: Right next to Cathedral gate, entrance to Canterbury Cathedral, in the centre of the old citty
Really loved the character of the hotel which is spread over several buildings. This meant it was a bit of a rabbit warren and included several sets of stairs but it was fun. The staff were very welcoming when I dropped my bag off and I returned to find they had taken it to my room.

Lovely historic hotel — great location

We didn’t want to leave! The staff were extremely pleasant and the accommodation was lovely with all amenities anyone would need. We enjoyed the breakfast with such lovely staff adding to the unique atmosphere.
