This was my third stay at ABode Canterbury, and although my room was smaller than previous visits I was still completely happy to be back again. The staff are friendly and helpful and I had a comfortable stay. The highlight was our meal in the restaurant; although a quiet Tuesday night the service was perfect and food and wine absolutely...

The restaurant serves excellent food, albeit with a very limited menu. The service throughout the hotel was also excellent. Its city centre location is right at the heart of this ancient city. However,...

My family and I enjoyed a brief visit for a post-meal cocktail and were very well looked after. The bar is a beautiful example of a contemporary refurbishment of an old building. The cocktails are pricey, but very, very tasty!
