Map & Directions

The nearest airport is London City, around 1 hour 15 minutes away by car, or you can take the Docklands Light Railway to Stratford International, then the train to Ashford International, where you can change for Canterbury East station -- around an hour and a half in total. The station is a 10-minute walk from the hotel. If you’re driving, exit the M2 at Junction 7 for the A2, before exiting on the A28 for Canterbury. There is free parking on site.

Overview

Set in the Wincheap area, which is thought to be the site of the city’s markets, the Canterbury Hotel is a reasonably priced 3-star property with friendly staff and a convenient location just 15 minutes’ walk from the Cathedral and 6 minutes from the train station.

The Cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the city itself is centuries old -- stroll through its pretty streets or along the river to soak up the atmosphere. Also worth a look is the Canterbury Tales exhibition, brought to life by Chaucer’s poetry. Further afield, the coastal town of Whitstable is only a 20-minute drive, home to the famous Oyster Festival.

The hotel has a heated indoor pool and Rose Garden Spa with massages available (charges apply), and the bar has more than 100 single malt whiskies, and a number of local beers. The restaurant does not serve lunch or dinner but a tasty breakfast is cooked to order (requests must be made the night before).

There are only 15 rooms on site, with free WiFi and tea and coffee-making facilities. Many have views of the pretty rose garden below, and two of the Superior Rooms have four-poster beds. Upgrade to the Canterbury Suite for a separate lounge, DVD player, fridge and a discount in the spa. There can be some road noise in those at the front, so ask for a room at the back if you’re a light sleeper. Some rooms are pet-friendly.
