Right at the gate to the cathedral and Burgate square. Easy walk to train station, Church of St. Thomas, St. Augustine’s church, and many restaurants.
Very nice four poster bed; interesting and charming room (tiny bit cluttered though?) but clean. Friendly and speedy check-in and check- out; pleasant staff all round. Interesting hotel with history and great location. Good view of the Cathedral from the room.
Very poor shower - no pressure at all. No one greeted us at breakfast, so delays in getting served, and table not set out properly. Generally unsuitable dining room - had we known how claustrophobic it was we would have chosen to eat in the room. Comparable hotels would have had hot breakfast included in the price.
We found the hotel comfortable but basic - it was an excellent choice for the purpose of our trip. We were visiting our nephew at the university
it was our own fault but we booked a room with a shared bathroom - we prefer en suite
Right in the centre, plenty of character.
The rooms and the hotel in general were very comfortable and good looking. From the window, we could see the famous Canterbury Cathedral which is actually adjacent to the hotel itself. The breakfast included in the price was served directly in the room, but it is also possible to have it in the common dining room. The toilets and the showers were very clean.
The bin in the room was full of garbage when we arrived in the hotel.The toilet paper in the common toilet finished and no one came to replace it.
The place is over 500 years old, and looking at the height of the door frames, I would guess that to be correct. I felt like I was staying in a museum, and I mean that in a good way. It was really cool sitting there thinking that people had been staying in the same room I was in for the past few hundred years. The hotel faces a really nice little square on one side, and looks out over Canterbury Cathedral and its surrounding yard on the other. Its a great location for exploring the town, and the prevalence of the Star Bucks right under the hotel made my friends happy they were able to connect history with 21st century consumerism.
The room I stayed in had a 30 degree angle slant which made for an odd first couple steps if you got out of bed. But granting that the room was a few centuries old, I could understand it. It even added to the charm I suppose. You were forced to share a toilet and shower with the floor, but even though the hotel was supposedly fully booked I never had any issues with either being occupied. They were clean, and it didn't really bother me, but might not be something seeking a private bed/bath would like.
Good location in the centre next to the high street shops and cathedral.
I was cold in the room, did not know how to get more heat from the radiator. Also the window did not close well and it was a rainy and cold day. The tv is really very small with only about 3 channels working, only one clearly. It seemed a bit like camping, not good in winter. Only a sink in the room and old fashion, water either too hot or too cold. Room very small, oldish, but that is to be expected in an old building.
Location. Views on the Cathedral and right in the centre of Canterbury. Plenty of choice with the Continental breakfast.
Labyrinth to find rooms. Uneven floors due to age. Average furnishing. About 500 metres to nearest car park.
The hotel had a great atmosphere - really quaint. Staff were friendly and helpful, and left us to it.
Canterburyn tuomiokirkko sijaitsee kivenheiton päässä ja Marlowen teatteri puolestaan 4 minuutin kävelymatkan päässä majoitusliikkeestä. Vastaanotto on auki rajoitetusti.
