Booked a last minute deal via secret escapes for 1 night bed, breakfast and a two course meal for my birthday. We arrived later than planned due to car problems but phoned ahead to let them know and they were very accommodating. When we did arrive we had a lovely greeting from the reception desk and there was even a birthday card and chocolates on our table when we went down for dinner. The food in the Fountain restaurant was excellent and the service equally so. We have a room on the third ... Read more

A very pleasant hotel in an excellent location for the city centre. Quiet location. Very attentive staff and excellent service. Ate in the main restaurant one evening - food good and priced accordingly to the grade of hotel. Pleasant room, and large bathroom. Masses of cupboard & drawer space.

This hotel has lots of potential but needs some work to get there. It's very well located with parking and an easy walk into town. Our bed was comfortable and clean with a decent sized bathroom. But the decor is very eighties and "busy" - it would seem much bigger and modern with some fresh new decor and furniture. The shower is erratic and hard to control the temperature - a decent power shower would make a big difference. The buffet breakfast is poor with tired offerings that had been kept w... Read more

We booked our 3 night stay through secret escapes and apparently we should have paid £143 per night but got a huge discount, which was very attractive. However, if I'd paid the full price, I would been even more disappointed than I was paying the discounted rate. Our bed was so soft, we changed rooms. The manager was so very helpful and understanding but it was inconvenient as we'd unpacked before trying the bed. We decided to eat in at the hotel on the Tuesday evening. When we arrived we were ...

Canterbury in high season was very busy with tourists,but this hotel is at least a nice comfortable walk out of the city. However our king suite was tiny with a small bed and two armchairs making it difficult to walk round. The front desk staff don't have a good attitude, and the service in the bar,was almost non-existent.

I bought a night in this hotel for my mum as she had been talking about visiting Canterbury for quite some time. From what she told me "I nearly teared up driving up the driveway" it's a very grand looking hotel with cute rooms, floral decor and close to Canterbury. I was also able to pay over the phone before their arrival. All in al they enjoyed their stay and found it clean, presentable and very friendly

What a most fantastic hotel and the most amazing staff, we had our wedding at this venue a day and must admitted it exceeded our expectations, the whole setup was totally professional and nothing was too much for the staff.

Very friendly & comfortable with generally excellent dining. Some things not working properly (e.g. shower and toilet seat, the former reported but no improvement or feedback) and some surprising items running out (bread in evening, cheese at breakfast). Wifi free but annoyingly had to provide registration details and then log in again each time my iPad was switched on.

Beautiful location!! The hotel was very easy to find, and when we arrived, we got a free upgrade! Going through the reception and hallways, we were in awe for the decor! The room was also very lovely, clean and was decorated in style. It took us a while to find out, how to work the airco, but once we did, it was "a breeze" ;-) Everyone who worked there, was very friendly and helpful! Dinner and breakfast was very well put together. We definately want to come back to visit!

We booked in here for one night, during graduation it was a struggle to find a hotel. Location was spot on for the family & the room was comfortable. Breakfast was disappointing as for the price of our stay over £ 200 for the night, I would of expected waiter/waitress service, it was nothing special, a self service buffet. After the graduation ceremonies we returned to the hotel about 9.30pm. The staff were polite and helpful, I did have to find a member of staff to serve us some drinks.

Our stay was over a Monday night. Parking at the hotel was not a problem. The room was a good size. The view was over building works, though that didn't bother us. No work was going on - so no noise from the works. The ventilation system did make a constant hum - just tell yourself you're on a cruise liner. Not loud enough to be a problem. This is not a new build hotel, so it has some of the character of an old country house. Dinner seems to sit early, so don't go late and expect it to be... Read more
