Likes:
Hotel seemed genuinely interested in well-being of guests. The location and history of the inn makes up for a lot of sins (but not quite all, I'm afraid).
Dislikes:
The inn desperately needs upgrades and right now is overpriced for value. Also, the website indicates that a parking voucher can be purchased at the desk, but the desk did not have that.

"This Terrible B and B is a waste of money for many, many concrete reasons"
Two nights for business. The place advertises free wifi, but it doesn't work in my room. When I went downstairs to see hwat was wrong, the owner told me, "Yeah, the wifi doesn't work upstairs. You have to come downstairs. Sorry." Unacceptable - I require wifi for business after hours. The toilet system was stunningly loud; every flush (mine as well as neighbors')was clearly heard between rooms, making an uninterrupted sleep impossible. So much more, not enough room Read less
Likes:
The building is very very old and architecturally interesting.
Dislikes:
Yes, so many. It's locked 24/7. You have to ring a bell for checkin. It's often unmanned; a note by the bell has a number to call if no one answers. What if you don't have a UK phone???

"Only book if you don't want to sleep"
We always see the positive no matter how basic as long as the place is clean and can have a nights sleep. Unfortunately the room was poor. The bedding was bad given the price of the room. Sheets and pillow cases with piling, stains from age. The location was lovely during the day. However sleep was impossible as from 9pm all you hear and can't escape, is loud revelling of drunk people in the street. This went on until 3am. We skipped breakfast. Looked like a canteen. Just wanted to leave. Read less
Likes:
Lovely exterior to building.
Dislikes:
Impossible to sleep in the Pilgrim room due to street noise. Breakfast room was grubby

Extensively refurbished in 2006, today the hotel offers a warm welcome with modern comforts, combining traditional architecture with contemporary design. A 15th century Tudor building brought back to life after being vacant for 50 years. Formally known as 'Little Inn' and made famous by Charles Dickens, it was transformed into this stylish hotel in 2006. It is just 20 minutes from Dover and the Channel Tunnel. We can offer guest with cars a reduce daily parking for 24 hours at £6 per day at hotel reception.

Bedrooms are stylishly furnished, most with a beautiful four-poster bed. Enjoy lunch, light bites and the renowned cream teas, served daily in the licensed tea rooms in the famous Sun Street.

Located just a few steps from Canterbury Cathedral in a cobbled street, this 15th Century hotel is steeped in history, with former guests including Charles Dickens. Canterbury lies on the River Stour, and along with the towns of Whitstable and Herne Bay is in the local government district of the City of Canterbury. Originally a Celtic settlement, it was renamed Durovernum Cantiacorum by the Roman conquerors in the first century AD. After the Kingdom of Kent's conversion to Christianity in 597, St Augustine founded an episcopal see in the city and became the first Archbishop of Canterbury, a position that now heads the Church of England and the worldwide Anglican Communion. Thomas Becket's murder at Canterbury Cathedral in 1170 led to the cathedral becoming a place of pilgrimage for Christians worldwide.

This pilgrimage provided the theme for Geoffery Chaucer's 14th Century literary classic the Canterbury Tales. The literary heritage continued with the birth of the playwright Christopher Marlowe in the city in the 16th Century.
