This is a lovely hotel based in a very central location in Canterbury. It's a 13th Century building, and we had a nice room with a 4-poster bed. There's a car park around the back. And a very good breakfast was included for our £149. But... being central, it was really busy on a Saturday night till incredibly late. And...

On arrival by car I had difficulty in locating the hotel car park and drove around in circles for some time. I eventually parked in a public car park and then walked to the hotel to ask for directions to their car park, which is via a very narrow entrance in a side street. The place was packed to overflowing...

Mum and I stayed overnight here on Monday. Was very impressed. Staff were so welcoming and friendly. David was lovely and recommended a great restaurant nearby. We stayed in the old windmill room, which was perfect for us. A little set back from the main road, so was very quiet. Breakfast very good. Couldn't fault our time there. Would definitely...

Although our room (#2) was very small, we had a pleasant stay. The bathroom was pretty large and the floorboards made funny sounds. Very 'authentic'. The bar has a nice atmosphere during the evening/night. Good breakfast with many choices, served by a kind staff. Good parking facilities in the courtyard.

What can I say... Fantastic location, 30+ free parking spaces for visitors, lovely staff and of course, great tasting cocktails. We stayed over on a Sunday evening so didn't expect many visitors but were pleasantly surprised, a busy hotel = a good hotel. We were shown to our room by a member of staff (which is rare). They'd gone the...

Thinking of taking afternoon tea at the Falstaff? Don't and choose somewhere else. I visited the Falstaff for the first time for afternoon tea with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. The service we received was dreadful. You'd get better at your local greasy spoon! We ordered a bottle of champagne to start. It took 20 minutes to...

Stayed in the hotel overnight for a break away from home. The bar staff were awesome, Kristian was really knowledgable about his trade and was great at socializing with the customers. The vibe was great. The hotel room we booked wasn't available in the end so we were given another one, room was comfortable, spacious and clean. Would recommend if...

Stayed here for one night whilst visiting Canterbury with friends, all of us were happy with staff, rooms,cleanliness,breakfast ect This is a perfectly located hotel but can be a little noisy with road traffic if located in the front rooms. All in all a very comfortable stay and would be happy to book again.

Had booked for my sister and I to take my mother to The Falstaff as a treat. The waitress, whilst very pleasant, was rather slow and half the time we couldn't find her. Cant say that I was blown away with the afternoon tea - had better. The sandwiches were nice, scones were very dry and the selection of cakes...

The hotel offers a cooked to order full English breakfast as well as self service buffet option. The bar offers a range of wines and variety of exclusive cocktails.
