"Gorgeous place with charm, but fails to fulfil expectations"
We had a nice stay but felt that for the premium price you will pay on a Saturday night the hotel fails to fully deliver. A gorgeous room with incredible features and furniture is slightly ruined by a modern sofa, messy wires for a TV that doesn't work due to lack of signal, wifi that doesn't reach the room, a poor tea tray with milk pots that all curdled due to being too old, and radox shower gel and shampoo as opposed to miniatures suggesting luxury. Room lacks any guides for using facilities. Read less
Likes:
The bed, was INCREDIBLY comfy. The owner has a wonderful personality and smile and just about makes up for some of the hotel's misgivings. The original features of the room were gorgeous.
Dislikes:
Breakfast was poor, sterile and slow. The assistant to the owner/manager had a very unhelpful approach and lacks any sense of customer service. Jacuzzi needs a manual- wasted 1 hour working it out

"Over priced and not 3 star"
Room was tiny- couldn't get from one side of the room to the other without climbing over the bed. Bathroom had saniflow system which went if all times of the night. No sleep at all. . Breakfast has 3 choices- sausages, bacon or eggs- ridiculous!! The stand in Cypriot manager was so overbearing- every time he saw you he'd speak and give you no space at all Read less

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.
