"A satisfactory and enjoyable stay"
A one night stay at a great place (=the hotel,the room and the local area). Breakfast was also good and really well cooked and served. This followed our visit in the daytime to the Kent Beer Festival in Merton Farm, just over two miles away. This was not just about beer, but also entertainment, food, interesting items (eg books, clothes) for sale and food. A great day was perfectly followed with a great place to stay at Sun Hotel Read less
Likes:
Everything, as mentioned above. Perhaps the unique, historical setting for it makes it extraordinary
Dislikes:
The small size of the building, eg being careful not to bang head (adults) when walking through a doorway. No fault of the building!,but due to its historical age. Remedy=a longer stay,learning more!

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 40 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.

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.
