Inexpensive but good quality accommodation smack in the heart of Canterbury, right next door to the cathedral. Clean, comfortable, and pleasantly quirky old building. Really nice staff. Good breakfast. My only issue is that I booked via Booking.com, and saw the symbol to show

The hotel is right next to the cathedral. I was there for business but it was a pleasure to stop. All the staff were helpful from the moment of arrival to the time I collected the bags (which they looked after for the day). Characterful room, nice breakfast, nice people.

Is there adequate parking?
Because of the location of the hotel (right next to the gate of the Cathedral), there is no car park in such central location. However, the receptionist will give you a parking voucher issued by the City Council and you are covered in about 10 car parks throughout the city.

On what floor is "Joy" located? It comes highly recommended!
There are 13 stairs to get to the reception, which is on the first floor and another 13 stairs to get to "Joy". Joy is actually one of the closest rooms we have to the entrance, it is also situated by the court yard garden and it has a beautiful Cathedral view. Regards, Diana
