              • The location was very good and the atmosphere at the hotel was friendly. The staff were pleasant and room was comfortable. The food was nice too.

                Not the best place to stay in Canterbury and poor service. The bed was very hard.

              • Loved your bar library area, lovely setting and our room was situated in a quiet location at the rear of the building. Staff were very good and the bathroom heated towel rail was hot and would not turn off. The breakfast was excellent.

                The hotel could not offer me gluten free bread/, the bed like a rock and just cramped and small, menu is very limited and the food is merely passable.

                Poor quality of breakfast/ and painful shower. Restaurant prices not clear enough and seem a bit misleading.

              • The location was convenient and hotel was good. Staff were courteous and helpful, room was spacious. Alex in the bar was most efficient and friendly as was the asst, breakfast was delicious.

                The food in the restaurant was not of the quality that we expected and bathroom was freezing.

                Convenient not too far from City Center, poor quality and very noisy adjacent bathrooms '. Music in bar a little dreary and the evening food fare was too elaborate and expensive.

              • Pleasant surroundings, beautiful hotel and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Room was very good, food in restuarant was very nice.

                The beds were firm and fairly comfortable.

              • Nice location about a 5 minute walk outside of Canterbury city centre and i liked the setting out of the hotel the short walk to the town and the frendleness of the staff.

                Room lighting very poor.
