                  8.8

                  Excellent city centre location. Good breakfast. Really well designed rooms.

                  TV channel selection (only 10 channels to choose from)

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  The room that we stayed was decorated and furnished lovely.

                  The water system above the room was very noisy in the morning.

                  Perfectly located in the centre of the city, very comfortable and stylish room, top quality breakfast and a superb pub attached to the hotel

                • Couple
                  10.0

                  The hotel was very centrally located to shops, bars and restaurants in Canterbury, was a lovely comfortable luxurious room and the staff were very polite and attentive

                • Couple
                  10.0

                  Great service by personnel working at the hotel, the locality of the hotel was in the middle of the town centre and the beds were unbelievably comfortable. Only negative was that our room faced the High street which was quite noisy at night. Did not get to try out the restaurant although the menu looked very nice. The hotel has a small parking are behind the hotel on a first come first serve basis. We got there early and was able to get a parking spot.

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  Set in an excellent central location, the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The room was spacious with a huge bed that was luxuriously comfortable. We treated ourselves to dinner in Michael Caines's restaurant and weren't disappointed - it was all delicious.

                  We had a beautiful room but it was disconcerting to find that the shower room with toilet had no sink - instead, we had to go to the open plan bathroom in the bedroom.

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  Bathroom was very cramped and uncomfortable. Towel rail awkwardly positioned,positioned too close to entrance to the bathroom and sticks out from the wall quite a lot,so inevitably caught my arm on it a few times causing bruising. Not good!

                • Family with children
                  7.4

                  Very nice hotel right on the main shopping street. Some nice old features, mixed well with the modern. Restaurant was of a good standard, and all the staff were friendly and helpful.

                  I do not think we should need to pay for the carparking, when spending around 300 pound in the hotel, this is a bit cheeky!!! It was also quite difficult to find.

                • Single
                  6.6

                  The proximity to the City Centre is really convenient. The Champagne Bar is lovely and makes a change from the usual pubs and bars in the area. Comfortable bed with good bedding. The staff are helpful, polite and cheerful. Although I was disappointed in the room, I would stay at the hotel again due to its location.

                  The rooms are adequate but not more than that. I did not stay in the lowest price room (but one up from that) and it was small - just a bed and a desk. The safe didn't work and could not be fixed as hotel were "waiting for a key". Unfortunately, the lift didn't work either for the first couple of days. Parking is tricky.

                • Group of friends
                  7.4

                  Great location, helpful staff.

                  Parking was difficult. I had ordered a twin room with this site but the hotel put me in a double. I had to pay extra to get the room I wanted.

                  See below e mail I sent to MD on Sunday - For the Attention of Andrew Broadsword Generally, we stay in UK hotels with very mixed feelings - we very often find them overpriced and certainly not commensurate with the standards offered. Abode was a second choice for us as were were attending a cricket match in the Shepherd Neame box at the County ground with a large group of friends who were staying in another hotel, which was fully booked - hence, we did not pay much attention to your web site - it was merely a booking of convenience, and our expectations were not particularly high. The minute we stepped over the threshold, we realised we were in for an unexpected treat. When trying to negotiate a very tight space in your car park, your maintenance employee on his way home spontaneously offered to do the manouvere for me. Reception and dining room staff were exceptional- they could not have been more friendly helpful and well informed, including the background and ethos of the Abode Group. We have have travelled a lot in the Far East and my wife and I concluded that the quality of service and ambience was on a par with the best we have experienced. Really looking forward to another stay.

                  Seemingly as we booked via yourselves- we did not get breakfast included- which I had seen on their own website- we did not have a suitable room- we are old and my wife has a problem walking - we had the furthest room from reception, up steps, dow n steps, through doors- no help at all with our bags to the room - very offputting - we asked to be changes - alas - no go - so you see - not so good - I am writing to the hotel itself to telll them what I have told you - I would like a reply from yourselves -
