The best place to stay when visiting Canterbury. This was an even more special visit as it was for our daughters graduation. We booked a twin and queen room. The twin was pretty basic but the queen room was amazing with a lovely sitting area too. Staff friendly and efficient as always.
Lovely corner bath but would have liked a holder to use the shower in a standing position rather than just when in the bath.

The hotel was lovely and staff very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and clean.
Unfortunately the food in the restaurant on the evening was not very nice. My son could not eat his burger. I paid £28.00 for a fillet steak which was very tough and almost inedible.

Food was expensive, and the portions were small.
