Guest reviews for ABode Canterbury

5 out of 5

Great location in the center of quaint town.

Pros: The staff was friendly and attentive. Ricky and his co worker at the front desk could not have been nicer.
Cons: Hard to improve on perfect.
Location: You could walk to the Cathedral which is only a few blocks away. The White Cliffs of Dover are a short drive away as well.
I don't usually take the time to write reviews but this hotel deserves one. We arrived in Canterbury late after a tough drive from London during rush hour and after driving on the left side of the road. I will a little stressed on arrival at the hotel. I was greeted with a smile and a personal conversation about my stay in England so far. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Our daughter joined us on the trip at the last minute and on arrival at the hotel we had to revise our rooms. This was done with out any problem. The clerk Ricky went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed to settle in and relax. He recommended a great restaurant that was open late. The room was SPOTTLESS, clean and fresh. Our room had a big soaking tub which was a welcome sight after a long flight and drive from London. On a trip from where we stayed at hotels in London and Rome the family all agreed this hotel was by far our favorite. You could walk to the Cathedral which is only a few blocks away. The White Cliffs of Dover are a short drive away as well.
