"frendly staff room kind of bad"
In general an okay stay. The staff seemed very nice. The breakfast was good but did not start until 8.30 am. There was a strong smell of chlorine in the room but the room was clean (but it can't have been healthy to sleep in the fumes). Read less
Likes:
The Staff was frendly and the location was great. It was cheap so I would recommend it for someone on a budget.
Dislikes:
The bed was very uncomfortable, the madras had a big soft spot in the left side making it feel like you slept in a hole. The shower was had such a high pressure that it actually hurt to be in there.

"Like a well-run B&B but at hotel prices"
Beautiful room and the whole building is so interesting. Kettle was broken when we arrived and proprietor replaced it asap with a brand new one. We did a lot of walking around Canterbury and only came back to the hotel for rests; its convenient location made this very easy. Read less
Likes:
Spotlessly clean bedding, carpet, bathroom. Quick service at breakfast. Very helpful proprietor.
Dislikes:
Tea and coffee making facilities were not very clean. Due to cobbled street at front and original windows, it was a little noisy in the morning as delivery vans pulled up to nearby shops and cafes.

Likes:
Not much, except location is convenient.
Dislikes:
Small room with confused and tasteless décor. Bedside light didn't work, wireless was very poor, there was no shower curtain, the shower stand was too loose to use - and I got no breakfast.

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.
