We booked this place so we could celebrate my parents 40th wedding anniversary in Canterbury. We booked 5 rooms. There was ample parking as they have two car parks. Ask at reception for a permit, I didn't and had to pay the rest got it for free! We received a lovely warm friendly greeting when we arrived. We mentioned about... More

Its closed to attractions, restaurants. shopping, bus station, train station etc. Overall the the customer service is reasonably good. We stayed at a family room at the ground floor. Comfortable bed and clean room. But there is... More

We booked a family room which was huge a double bed and 2 singles and large bathroom. What is great about this hotel apart from the price is the location and the friendly staff. It is basic but for £90 including breakfast and a chance to park for 24 hours (not many spaces) it was very good value and we... More

Clean room & comfortable bed. well positioned to see Canterbury & the surround area. Parking on site is good as parking around the city centre is expensive. Could do with more storage for clothes, rather than having to leave these in the suitcase

Stayed here one night for work last week. Was very cheap. Parking was a bit confusing, the machine didn't work though the girl on the desk just gave a note to leave on the windscreen which was fine. She was friendly and then was given the key to my room. Room was very small, a double bed and small desk... More

I have stayed here previously and had a nice room on the first floor. This time we were stuck up on the 2nd floor, room was very small.

Helpful staff , big comfortable beds, adjustable heating. Double and family rooms at top were massive, single room was a bit small for the same price. Everything you need for a night away. Old building.

2 nights here was ok. Hotel a bit basic for more. But for a cheap place to stay right in the centre of the city it was good.

Decent, spacious if sparse room - see photo of "wardrobe". Comfortable king-size bed. Room was warm and you could open the windows (a little way), but no air conditioner which could make it uncomfortable in the summer - not a problem for us as we were staying over the first cold weekend in November. Reasonable shower - didn't try the... More

Good place to stay. Convenient location and pleasant staff. Rooms clean and tidy. The stairwell is a bit tired but the room made up for it. The sink was a bit clogged with water going down slowly. Not enough to be annoying.
