"Disappointing service, overpriced rates, faulty bathroom and non exsistant breakfast"
. On arrival I was greeted by a man who quite frankly obviously did not want to be there. He explained that we were In a room right at the top of the hotel, which is fine, and handed over the key. No offer to take us to our room. We got there and there was water all over the bathroom floor as the shower had obviously sprung a leak. We then explained that this was the case and he promised that someone would investigate. No one did. Everything seemed to have been done on the cheap! Read less
Likes:
Not much - location was probably the only plus.
Dislikes:
The overall room was unnaceptable for the price that we paid. The owner never appeared and we had to talk to him over the phone. The wifi password was spelt wrong therefore no one could get wifi.

"Great location but poor accommodation"
The bed was very uncomfortable - no support in the mattress, I ended up sitting in the armchair all night while my partner laid on the bed.
The breakfast - no option but scrambled eggs or a full english breakfast - I am vegetarian - cheap mushrooms/poorly cooked - not pleasant!
Parking a nightmare but as Staff knew this they should have been more helpful - no maps and have never been to Canterbury before.
Also very unhelpful that i couldn't leave my bag at reception for the day and then had t Read less

Great coffee!
Dislikes:
All of the above - I'm afraid I cannot recommend this place and will not return
I spoke to 2 members of staff - they both told me differing options about parking - no maps!

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.
