This is a great hotel! Check in was quick, professional and friendly. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and quiet. Every member of staff we encountered was helpful, friendly and professional. We had a room service breakfast, which was courteously delivered on time and the food was excellent. The free onsite parking is a bonus. Close access to restaurants, freeways and shops makes the location ideal. It was not our first stay at this hotel and it definitely won't be our last.

Superb accommodation, for a most reasonable price. The staff's attention to very detail was faultless, to the point where the duty manager absolutely insisted on unlocking the door of our room. We dined in house in the evening, and the meal was outstanding. We would not hesitate to stay at Canterbury International Hotel again.

Nicely appointed room, but a few issues - such as fridge needing to be slammed as the door gets caught. Also, hair left in shower from previous occupant (on wall and floor), only 2 tissues were left in the box, so unable to clean it up properly ourselves before using it. Overall, a nice hotel in a good location with lovely staff.
