Very Good8.0
Going back to middle ages
A beautiful location and very helpful staff but the premises require extensive renovation (not easy to be done due to old age of the building)

Cathedral Gate Hotel, Canterbury
A pilgrims home.
Everything was great! Comfort wasn't the best but that was because of the unusual hot weather not the hotel. Location the best with access to Cathedral easy, many good places to shop eat and tour just steps away. Soaked up the history.

We'll be back!
Beds were quite comfortable. Shared shower and toilet were very clean and NOT AT ALL the problem I imagined they might be.

Good, clean hotel!
We had an en suite room with a great view of the cathedral. It is clean, centrally located to all shops and restaurants, about a 15 minute walk to the Canterbury west train station, and the breakfast is very good. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay there and would stay again!

quirky with excellent location
quirky - to get to room had to go up stairs, through lobby, down stairs, up stairs, out door, down stairs, scamper across roof, up stairs, in door, sharp left, and up narrow twisted stairs - room was nice with great view - we would stay here again just for the excellent location
