We stayed here for a night in early December & sadly I really wasn't impressed. Parking was the first mission, pulled into the car park & was told by 4 separate people we weren't allowed to park, just drop our bags and go. I wouldn't mind but we only needed to be told once! Reception staff weren't the friendliest, rushing...

This is very much a standard hotel so don't expect anything flash, but it's setting is simply unique and gives you free access to the Cathedral grounds throughout your stay with a view that you could never get bored of. The rooms are very clean, modern and well appointed with a great feature of self-service bottles of water/water fountain in...

Friendly and welcoming reception staff. Well equipped and clean room and shower room. Very comfortable bed and splendid views of the Cathedral. The breakfast was of a very high caliber offering a good range of choice. Vegetarian full English was very enjoyable. Service was excellent. I would highly recommend this place and will be returning.

This is our second time at the lodge, this time my daughter's family stayed too. Both of our rooms looked out onto the Cathedral, and it looks better in the evening when it is lit up. As you are in the grounds of the Cathedral, you can wander around the grounds and have unlimited access to the Cathedral. The rooms...

A clean and pleasant lodge, fantastic breakfast, wonderful staff and comfortable beds. But all this is minor compared to view of the cathedral outside your window. The price is very reasonable when you consider the large breakfast included as well as free entrance to cathedral and parking onsite. It was so convenient to be located centrally and have easy walking...

On arriving at my room ( on a very cold day), I found the heating had been turned off, so the room more resembled a fridge that a welcoming home from home.The room itself was small with only a shower (no bath), and a damp smell to it. There were no towels in the room, which I had to go...

Arrived at Canterbury West rail station in pouring rain and was a little unsure of how to reach hotel. But followed signs to cathedral which I found without problem. Hotel is within the cathedral close so it wasn't simple to find, but what an experience when first within the ancient walls. The lodge itself is fairly recent, and rooms nice...

This hotel is in the Cathedral grounds and has wonderful views of the Cathedral. The rooms are small but clean, well decorated. Our room 107, looked out over a little garden.
