    I don’t know how you could be better located for a stay in Canterbury. The cathedral is immediate, less than a minute’s walk to attend evensong, and the center of town a minute’s walk the other way. I feared I may feel a little removed from the town staying here, but this was not true at all. As it is part of the cathedral grounds guests are expected to conduct themselves in accordance, which I appreciated. Staff was very helpful. VERY clean and I don’t think I have ever seen higher quality plumbing! (Not usually an issue I realize, but I couldn’t help but notice.)

    Wonderful stay

    We travelled around the UK for two weeks and the quality of our stay here rates at the very top. The friendly and professional staff that greeted us and helped us during our stay was wonderful. The breakfast was one of our favorites throughout our journey. The location and the room was fantastic. Looking out from our hotel window to see that cathedral view was breathtaking and I couldn't help smiling each time I heard the bells toll. The room was clean and spacious. There is no question that the next time we travel to Canterbury, we will be staying here!

    Amazing view and friendly staff

    We loved our stay at the lodge. It was so pleasant and nice. The room was clean and well prepared. The bathroom was amazing...nice good water pressure from the shower and plenty of hot water. The English breakfast (included in the price) was absolutely delicious. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The view of the cathedral was amazing!! I would highly recommend staying here.

    Beautiful and convenient setting, but the hotel is nothing special. Definitely not enough electrical outlets in the rooms.

    Perfect location to see the town and cathedral. We are not religious but enjoyed seeing this historic town and took in evensong. Simple but clean hotel, you can fill water bottles too. Breakfast is well run and easy.
