From the minute we walked into the lovely historical entrance we felt welcome & relaxed. We stayed in one of the apartments which had a double, twin & a bathroom which was clean; the lounge is a bit less roomy as it only has a small sofa but there is also a dining table with 4 chairs and a well equipped kitchen. We were given the option to have breakfast in the hotel which we took up. Breakfast was made to order, with time to relax and enjoy it. It only takes 15 minutes to walk into the centre of Canterbury & the staff were happy to recommend restaurants. It is a quiet, relaxed and comfortable hotel. A comfortable bar leads to a beautiful garden with a couple of Jacuzzis at the end. We used it as a base to visit local beaches, preparing picnics in the apartment. We will visit again as this combines the privacy and utilities of self catering, alongside the luxury of a hotel offering exceptional customer service.

Room Tip: Apartments are brilliant for families.

Front of hotel and reception looked lovely on arrival but unfortunately rooms are very dated. Wallpaper hanging off walls and not very clean. Long wait for breakfast delivery and buffet spread poor for the cost.

Decided on the spur of the moment to have a night away, Whitstable was full and we got the last room here which turned out to be a recently refurbished 2 bedroom cottage about 15 metres walk from the main building.
It was very nice, plenty of free parking and only about 10 minute walk to downtown Canterbury where parking is a challenge.
The shower was hard to use, in fact a slow dribble of cool water, mentioned this to the manager and he offered us free breakfast as a sorry.
The breakfast itself was not included but a very good value £7.50 for a full English which resulted in a packed dining room.
So far so good but ( I'm told on the wishes of the owner ) most food and hot drink items come from the kitchen which results in multiple trips in and out for the waiters whilst they deliver tea pots, coffee pots, toast, hot food etc. The owner doesn't like sauce bottles on the table so there were additional visits to the kitchen to bring back little dishes of ketchup, brown sauce, mustard etc.
This all adds up to a 45 minute breakfast
For £7.50 I would have been more than happy to help myself to everything from a buffet and make my own toast and squeeze my own ketchup out of a bottle.
They have also invested quite a few pounds in building decking and a patio outside with decent tables and chairs. Breakfast would have been nice out there but on the way they currently operate, a bit of an impossibility

This was a pleasant two night stay. The location is an easy 15 minute walk to the Cathedral and center of town. The room are spacious, with modern bathrooms, and a queen sized bed. In today's world you expect free wifi and their's worked flawlessly. The staff was especially nice, and the breakfast, located in a very bright and airy breakfast room, was thoroughly enjoyable. The facility is quiet, and our room overlooked a very nice garden. I highly recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the garden.

We were attending the Marlowe theatre and wanted to stay over night. We did not want to stay right in the main street mainly due to the noise and lack of parking. The hotel is just a 10 minute walk to the theatre. If you are looking for a modern hotel then this is not the place for you but if you want somewhere full of charm and character then you won't go wrong with the Ebury. They go back to good old fashioned customer service and we couldn't fault any of the staff. The breakfast was very good and there was plenty of it. There is a beautiful and well kept garden at the back. I will definitely return when we are next in Canterbury.
