The breakfast was the best one my husband had ever had, and he has had a lot of hotel breakfasts! The bed was superb - very comfortable. Lovely staff.
Be prepared for some stairs and a quirky route to the rooms. Reminded us of hotels in Paris which is fine!
The view from the sound proof window, clean bathroom only 2 steps from my room that had a vanity. Excellent breakfast and very good value. Superb location with parking available nearby .
Location, charming old building with heritage, friendly and family run
staff weren't always available
Very friendly staff Beautiful location Breakfast very tasty and plentiful
Single room very basic. Only two plug sockets and one was for the TV Shower room was tiny Got very noisy with all tourists collecting outside to see the Cathedral.
Smack in the middle if town, literally at the Canterbury Cathedral. Excellent location. A few meters from the Canterbury bus station and not too far from the Canterbury East Train station. A great continental breakfast, optionally in bed at no extra cost.
It was quite a bit costly during my time there. Then again it was peak time during graduation week with a lot of students around. Check in at 3 PM is a bit late, though they will keep your luggage for you.
Was sold a parking voucher after telling reception where I was parked. Got a parking ticket as the voucher did not cover the carpark I was in, why ask where I was parked and then sell me a voucher that didnt cover that car park?. Shower room in a cupboard and water cold and water didn't drain. Carpet filthy. Window didnt close. Had to share a toilet which was in the hall. Overall a poor experience.
Medieval building remodeled to have bathrooms and continue to have character!
Location, quaintness, lovely city
Helpful. V clean.
Rooms overlooking pedestrian precinct can be quite noisy at night.
Part of the building dates from 1657, so I loved the puzzle of it. I had a back room (Cathedral -- the name of the room) and a splendid view of the cathedral building itself. The staff were brilliantly helpful about anything and everything . . . very friendly.
I liked everything about this hotel, but people booking it should be prepared for shared toilets and showers and for all the quirks of a very old building. I did find it a bit difficult to do balance exercises on a floor that sloped.
quirky rooms excellent staff lovely breakfast.
slopping floors in room.
I loved the situation and quirkiness of the hotel and the helpfulness of the staff
The fact that I wasn't told about all of the facilities, for instance the residents lounge and outside space and the availability of tea, coffee in the lounge. This did not spoil my short stay though and I will go back!
Quirky rooms, generally with good facilities. Staff were very helpful. The location was very central. Parking voucher was a real plus too.
Shower was pretty useless. Street lights were very bright outside the window.
Age and character of the building Breakfast staff helpfulness location - on the square and next to the cathedral Views of the cathedral from several hotel windows
Loved the charm and quirkyness of this 500 year old building. The staff were more than accomodating, friendly, happy and helpful. Was lovely to be so central to the city and a breathtaking backdrop of the Cathedral!
We were in a front room and it was very hot so we had to keep the window open all night which meant it was quite noisy but not the hotels fault really.
Excellent, clean friendly hotel. Staff very friendly. Would definitely stay again!
Unfortunately not disabled friendly. Lots of stairs and narrow corridors.
It was haunted
Refurbished throughout, friendly new owners since my last stay. Superb position near Cathedral, lovely breakfast - continental inc.in rate.
Right in the hub of the City. Easy walking distance to Cathedral and shops. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Very welcoming and clean accommodation. Will definitely stay again.
Tasteful, clean. Friendly staff. Really nice breakfast. Amazing value for money.
A fascinating medieval warren of rooms & corridors give it a unique character. You can sit out the back and look at the cathedral close up. Very friendly staff. Nice room. varied continental breakfast.
The only thing that caught us out was the power shower! To turn it up to hot meant the most powerful spurt of water we've encountered!
Communal shower and toilet facilities not fit for purpose
Location and breakfast were great. Yes it's an old building and needs a bit of work done but beds are good and clean and you are right in the middle of the town
Shared Toilets/showers need to be a better standard
Excellent location. Full of history and character. Quirky and quaint. Very characterful. Comfortable beds and good quality bedding. Most staff very pleasant and helpful. Good value Nice to have option of cooked or continental breakfast. Excellent view and ambience of Cathedral
Poor shower facilities. Lack of accessible power sockets in room. Blind was broken on window. Disorganisation serving breakfast. I would return however as the pluses outweighed the negatives!
The quaintness of the hotel is charming with sloping floors and the view of the cathedral from the terrace is amazing!
Lots of stairs so with suitcases was difficult but to be expected with the layout of the hotel. The full English breakfast was poor value for money.
