    Convenient location, comfortable rooms and friendly, helpful staff.

    Nothing really.

    Good

    The location near the city centre is good and the staff courteous. Interesting old inn with character.

    Hot water was not very hot and took ages to become hot. Serving hot food on cold plates is just ridiculous.

    A very decent city hotel, with comfortable rooms, right by (but not in) the heart of the city. In coaching inn style, some rooms are potentially noisy, being right on the street.

    Everything. Staff, breakfast, accommodation, cleanliness, location were all excellent. The description of the hotel does not give it justice. Would certainly recommend this hotel.

    It is in an excellent location to see Canterbury. We were very satisfied with the hotel and were given an excellent breakfast. We will recommend it to friends.

    The hotel itself is very quaint, the atmosphere was friendly but professional and the location was perfect for a visit to Canterbury. We also liked that although it is on a busy road and in the heart of Canterbury there was no traffic noise whatsoever. My husband particularly enjoyed the breakfast! A fantastic selection of fresh well presented food.

    There was nothing to dislike. The only comment I would make is that the hotel being very old has very creaky floors which are charming and add to the ambience, but can be a little disturbing at night! Having said that, I definitely would go back again.

    Had a wonderful stay at The Falstaff!! We stayed in The John Falstaff suite which was comfy, atmospherfic and truely made our stay feel special!!! Taking photographs in our suite we got some great pictures of orbs in the room which for us just added delight to our stay. The staff were friendly, so close to Canterbury we didn't use the car once. We ate at a a fantastic restaurant called Marlowes - have never been to a restaurant with so much choice. Would definately recommend this hotel and a visit to Canterbury.

    Friendly and helpful reception staff. Very convenient position of hotel.

    The food at breakfast was excellent but the service was very slow on both mornings, we were forgotten completely on the first morning and therefore had a long wait and it was not much better the second morning - just as well we were not in a hurry.

    The room was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. But watch out for the hot water, it is very hot.

    The Falstaff was so near to the city entrance, there was no need to use the car. Parking was good.

    The shower wasn't great!
