I can honestly say that I have no complaints about the hotel. I have been to different ones around Canterbury, and then by all means give it a try.
There’s not much more to say about it, just go try it!!
This certainly is the best located hotel in Canterbury and couldn't be much closer to the Cathedral.
Stayed here the Saturday after That Wedding - a std double cost £120 via Booking.com. Breakfast was extra at around £8.50 each with the 40% off voucher we were handed on arrival.
Room 102 was large with the bathroom off to our right which was a wetroom that would please Japanese guests without fear of flooding the diningroom below!
The carpet was so spongy, I thought I was going to fall over! Two large single beds were slung together & had VySpring mattreses that were too soft for my taste. The room was air-conditioned, very modern with photos of the cathedral etc. An iron, board, hairdrier, writing paper, chargeable tuckbox, tea/coffee making LCD TV, DVD player & a small safe complete the inventory. The free WiFi required registration but worked fine
The (bathless) bathroom was very nicely adorned With a fold-down seat in the shower corner - gets my vote!
We got a good night's sleep, possibly helped by running up a £37 bar bill after a great curry we had down Palace St.
You can occupy from 14:00 & vacate up to midday, the staff were friendly & helpful. We had a full English breakfast that was OK rather than memorable - I prefer crispy bacon!
I stayed here with work and was hugely impressed. A beautiful building with friendly, attentive staff and excellent facilities right in the centre of Canterbury. My room had very possibly the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, TV and DVD player and beautiful bathroom. Despite being at the front of the hotel, it remained quiet. Although it's at the pricier end of the scale (but hey, I wasn't paying!) I'd definitely say it was worth the cost.
I read a really bad review in one of the national newspapers regarding Abode and it put me off going for a very long time. However, friends had eaten there and all had raved about it, so we took the plunge one evening and went for the 'taster’ menu (about 7 courses!!!). It didn’t disappoint and finally the 'West End’ had come to Canterbury! The food was truly excellent and the service efficient and professional. It is not a cheap evening out, but like anything in life, you get what you pay for.
Last week was my first visit to an Abode hotel and I was very impressed!
This hotel is so well located in Canterbury - it is right in teh centre, walking distance from the Cathedral and all the shops. They also have a free car park - well, on a first come , first served basis which I was lucky with. The bedrooms are of a reasonable size and well appointed. I love their room types…comfortable, desirable, enviable and fabulous! Great!
The restaurant is run by Michael Caine, a top chef and the food is excellent.
A great find in the centre of Canterbury - I am looking forard to seeing more Abode hotels
Champagne Bar is a really cosy place to meet up with a friend when you need to catch up. Great atmosphere. Quite busy but you don’t feel like you are crowded out. Seating is comfortable and choice of cosy corner or settees. Coffee selection is great too and served with little sweet biscuits. Staff do bug you a little bit but then we only bought one drink and stayed quite a while.
I recently stayed here. I had oringinally gone to another hotel in town but had such a bad experience there that I left and tried to get a room here. They were almost fully booked but went out of their way to make a last minute booking for me and get me a safe, comfortable room for the night.
It was my birthday and I mentioned this at check in. By the time I had gone up to my room after checking in a member of staff had run up with a box of chocolates and a card reading: 'from the staff at the abode, happy birthday!’ and left them on my bed. I was astounded at this wonderful, thoughtful gesture.
The room was lovely. It was very comfortable, clean and luxurious with everything you could need to survive away from home! It certainly lives up to it’s four star reputation.
It is very well placed in town and is within walking distance of the shops and the cathedral. Beautiful hotel with excellent management.
