      Nice central location

      Really nice room and breakfast. A bit unnerving having to ring on a doorbell to get in to be greeted with a couple of burley police men! But once you got used to the police guard at the cathedral it was ok.

      Very convenient place for visiting cathedral. Quite expensive for the room we got, which was small and functional. Very overheated. Breakfast was very good.

      Lovely stay.

      Very nice stay although the room was a little on the small side. Lovely to wander round the grounds in the evening when the cathedral is all lit up. The room key enables you to enter the grounds free of charge and any time of the day/night. The breakfast at the lodge is very substantial and cooked to order, after you have had cereals/fruit or pastries. Canterbury is a lovely city to visit, a typical cathedral city so contained and walkable.

      Great place to stay

      Lovely hotel in an amazing location within the cathedral grounds. Staying here also gives you free entry to the cathedral, which is well worth a visit. Breakfast was included and was really nice too. Would definitely stay again.

      Fantastic location in Canterbury

      If you like a unique location then this qualifies. Set in the precincts of Canterbury Cathedral, excellent service from all staff, very comfortable room with a view of the cathedral. Convenient for all shops, bars and restaurants and a 10 minute walk to both railway stations. Very good choice for breakfast and in late afternoon we relaxed in the garden with a cold cider and a glass of wine, it was so peaceful. Definitely recommend this hotel .

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      The lodge is on the cathedral grounds, about a one minute walk to the cathedral and maybe 2 minutes to town. Can’t imagine why this wouldn’t be your first choice to stay. The maps in your phone will not get you there, the entry to the parking is tricky. Best is to go where the maps tell you, park in loading zone and ask at the taxi stand.

      A lovely location the only bugbear is parking, it is limited onsite and if not available the public car parks you are directed too are a walk away and a little difficult to get to.
