If you’re coming to Canterbury for the Cathedral, there’s surely no better place to stay. Built in the grounds of the city’s world-famous cathedral, this sleek hotel has bedrooms that look straight onto the imposing facades. 

Rooms feel a touch corporate, but the garden is a joy, as is the Refectory Terrace, where hearty breakfasts and optional evening meals are taken. 

This isn’t the place to stay if you’re looking for buzz – many guests staying have business at the cathedral, but for a few days of quiet contemplation, it’s perfect. 

Surrounding area

Step outside the door of the hotel and you’re in the grounds of the Cathedral, offering a unique chance to explore before the crowds arrive in the morning. It’s a peaceful place, particularly once visiting hours are over. 

Once outside the catherdral entrance gate, you’re on the historic Buttermarket, with picturesque medieval buildings and cobbled lanes leading up to the High Street and down to Burgate, with its clutch of one-off boutiques and restaurants.
