"An extremely peaceful location.I needed somewhere convenient for the ferry terminal at Dover and this was ideal.I will definitely keep the Holiday Inn in mind should circumstances require something similar in future."
"If you are looking for accomodation in Canterbury itself,its a bit of a trek."

"It was a one night stop over on our way to Holland for the Floriade. Although it never stopped raining and we saw nothing in Canterbury for sightseers, the hotel was a big plus and we will return. We found everyone friendly and helpful. We go to Belgium regularly to see family ao the hotel is a great break point coming from Somerset."

"Incredibly cheap and very close to Canterbury."
"Only accessible via freeway, which runs directly by the hotel. The noise is acceptable, though. If you put the above address into your GPS it will probably mislead you."

"Friendly staff. Hotel situated very close to the city centre. Although situated near a busy road it is very quiet at night. The food was to a good standard."
"Not enough choice at the bar, the breakfast was good but would benefit from hot menu. The Hotel is very poorly signposted from the main road and easy to miss. the tables in the lunch area are low and people of average height could not sit at the properly."
