Just feet from Canterbury’s medieval West Gate, this charming building dates back to 1403. A former coaching inn, it offers free Wi-Fi and free parking, a short walk from the center of the city.
Score from 979 reviews Very good

We stayed there so we would be close to Canterbury . The location was great, it was very convenient that there was a bar and restaurant on site so when we arrived late, we could have a lovely dinner without having to go in town.
There was a problem with the heating in our room and the bathroom was totally cold. I think the rooms would reallly need to be renovated. We stayed 2 nights, it was ok. Expected a little bit more.
The hotel was very clean, staff were friendly.
The wifi was extremely slow and it kept showing O2's nag screen every time I opened up the browser. At £75 a night, breakfast could've been cooked (they charged £7 more for cooked breakfast). At the very least, I would've liked ham and cheese to make a sandwich or at least have something other than yogurt, jam, bread and cereal.
The location is great - only 15 minutes downhill walk to Canterbury centre. The price was very reasonable for Canterbury accommodation. The adjoining pub "The Old Gate Inn" is very nice and having eaten there several times, I can recommend the food as solid gastropub stuff. The cooked breakfast was also very nice at an additional £6.95pp. Despite a couple of issues, I would stay again.
There is no thermostat in the room. During our stay the central heating system was on "The Gates of Hell" and it would have been nice to have the option of turning it down to "Inferno" or "Swedish Sauna". Also the extractor fan in bathroom is constantly only with no spur to switch it off. Both these issues meant an uncomfortable night's sleep. I did ask if the heating could be adjusted but was told, "it's on a central system, there's nothing I can do about it." That being said, the temperature meant that I was able to sweat off enough calories in the night to enjoy a cooked breakfast without guilt.
The last rooms available in Canterbury at short notice. Its next door to the Park and Ride so during the day you can use that to get into town. Rooms were clean and comfortable.
Included breakfast is continental. You can pay extra for a 'full English' but don't ask for any variations. Vegetarians NOT catered for. Disappointing these days.
lovely large room and ensuite. Staff very helpful. Easy to operate tv with large screen. Lots of variety at continental breakfast.
would have liked hot chocolate sachets included with drinks and also, free toiletries as advertised.
Staff were excellent!
As our room was overlooking main road I didn't open window and it was very stuffy.
The comfort of the room, the excellent dining options, wonderful and helpful staff
The shower in the family bathroom was not very powerful and was quite frustrating to use. The pull out sofa bed was a little crumpled for 2 people
Very convenient, easy to find. Helpful staff. Comfortable stopover before using channel tunnel.
Very cosy and British
Room a little small
Friendly and helpful staff, excellent food and drink
When I checked in there was no room booked for me even though I had a confirmation E-Mail from Booking.com. A partly it hadn't been sent to the system!
The staff, the cleanliness and the quality of food.
The restaurant toilets could do with a referb-adequate rather than good.
room was clean beds very comfortable would recommend will def stay there again staff friendly
the continental breakfast could of been a bit better
Pleasant Staff Fantastic Shower Good Sized Car Park
Gents toilet in the bar are very unpleasant. Continental breakfast very poor quality, muffins were stale, coffee awful !!!!!!!!!!!!
Cleanliness & position
Basics such as bread not available for lunch & no teacups for breakfast. Staff eating &discussing reviews at the bar in view of customers .
I thought it was clean and friendly. The best feature is the private entrance to the bedrooms which means you can come and go as you please. The shower was very powerful and hot and tea making kit in room was nice touch.
There are no baths.
Friendly staff ready to help, nice and old place, clean and traditional room. Sunday roast a must! Free parking.
The bed was comfy. The price of food in the restaurant was reasonable. The foreign member of staff that greeted us when we arrived she was lovely and very helpful got us an ironing board and iron. She also ended up waiting on us in the restaurant in the evening wish all the staff had been like her!
Not very friendly being questioned by member of staff for asking for 4 croissants for the two of us when they should have been out on the table anyway! The bedroom was unnaturally hot even though there was no heating in it! Was never asked how did you sleep etc at breakfast weren't very friendly at all .
The ambience was superb and all the staff polite and helpful.
The wifi was awful, partly due to the lead roofing, partly due to O2 not wanting Skype users.... I fear.
Everything was great but I couldn't sleep as the room was too hot.
Room too hot.
Location great ,next to the park and ride into Canterbury !
Food not so good !
frendly staff, good food
wifi for people from outside uk was impossible.
The ambiant The place
The restaurant was interesting with good service. It was easy to locate.
The bed was very poor. It was lumpy and it had a terrible dip in the centre. The curtains did not close very well so it was difficult to keep out the external light. It was quite cold.
Room location breakfast just nice
Shower water pressure could be better
It was central for my needs and is adjacent to the P & R should one need to go to the city. Also Kent CCC ground is in walking distance.
I felt the continental breakfast could have been slightly more imaginative.
