We booked this on-line under the illusion that we were paying £19.95 for afternoon tea for a treat for my mother-in-law. My partner was contacted a few days later to ask for a deposit which he paid. Not once was he told that due to it being Mother's day they were going to hike the price up to £25.00 per... More

Booked an afternoon tea as a birthday treat for my two nieces and we had a fabulous time. Nice surrounding, lovely food and the staff were great, happily dealing with requests for different sandwich fillings due to one food allergy and one fussy eater. I have no hesitation in recommending the hotel for afternoon tea, just don't expect to eat... More

Lovely Afternoon Tea, I had the Champayne and it was lovely. Lovely finger sandwiches filled with lovely things such as Egg, Salmon, Ham, cream cheese and cucumber. There were so many cakes I had to ask for a box to take some home with me.

Having been a visitor to Canterbury numerous times and frequenting here I can honestly say it has gone on a slippery slope down, service is shoddy and the "Champagne selection is average" . When we arrived the room was very empty but was asked if we had booked, fortunately knowing this industry I know tables are set aside for Drop-Ins... More

While I am not adverse to paying £21 for two cocktails, I do like them delivered with style. Brought to the table on a tray, perhaps with a coaster to put beneath the glass when it is placed on the table. Last night the bartender walked across the room with a glass in each hand and put them on the... More

After a disastrous dinner at a nearby restaurant we hoped to be revived by a coffee in this attractive hotel. They can't make a coffee. A flat white should be 2 shots of coffee, full fat milk with a light froth. Not a grey watered down effort. We did send them back and explain what we wanted but to no... More

This is a chief hotel in the centre of the city and ought to do better than this. We were in for a quiet hot drink and cake after shopping on a chilly February Saturday. Ignored on entering; table slowly cleared, despite numerous headless chicken staff; large handsome, tranquil room with log fire (which the staff let go out and... More

We had a pre dinner drink on both the Friday and Saturday of our stay and felt the service was extremely proffesional whilst still being friendly asking about the sites we'd seen that day. A comfortable bar area and good service the bar is great whether you are staying at the Abode or not.
