    For me, the location is perfect -- across from the Cathedral and in the heart of old Canterbury. It was simple, comfortable, and welcoming. From here I could walk over during the day for the different services -- Perfect!

    Everything was better than expected after arriving from Heathrow Airport after bumper-to-bumper traffic on the M25. At checkin the front desk made parking available on the Cathedral grounds and only a couple of minute walk to the inn. Breakfast...
