Often pop to The Abode for drinks but live locally so staying in a hotel 3 minutes from my home seemed excessive...

After a couple of wonderful cocktails and a quick tour of the upmarket accommodation, we booked a ‘Most Enviable’ room.

It was amazing! More like a suite than a room, we had a huge bed, large freestanding bath, separate wet room and luxurious toiletries and bedding.

Ricky (on Reception) gave us fantastic customer service and I would recommend the hotel and it’s facilities to everyone!

My friend brought me to the ABode champagne bar for my birthday treat.
I was disappointed and underwhelmed after looking forward to it so much.
The sandwiches were soggy, fruit scones crumbled , my small fruit tart fell to pieces as the raspberry were too heavy for the pastry and the macaron was way too sickly.
We were only offered one top up of coffee and it was one a tiny cup to begin with.
My friend had been previously and said that her last visit had a pianist which was sadly missing for our visit- maybe because it was a Monday?
All in all I’m very disappointed

Dear Julie T - Thank you for taking the time in giving us feedback of your visit. I'm sorry on this occasion you did not enjoy the experience. I have passed on the feedback to our pastry chef, which he is extremely apologetic but we do constantly receive positive feedback and on this occasion it can only be a blip. I can only send my my sincere apologies and let the team know if you are not happy with any items and they will happily correct it. Just to add our pianist plays on Saturdays and Sundays. Thank you and kind regards Miles S

On a recent business trip I stayed at this hotel. Absolutely wonderful experience from start to finish. The building has been very tastefully renovated. The hotel room was very spacious, wooden floors, comfortable bed and had absolutely everything you'd need. Breakfast was an absolute delight. Wonderful selection of hot & cold options and the staff were very friendly despite being very busy. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Perhaps avoid a room facing the street

We keep coming back as the quality never fails. Great food, great wine, great service. Because this was pre-theatre, the staff were well aware of our timing needs and acted appropriately and with skill. Well done Abode. Continue to add class to Canterbury.

On our second day in UK we have enjoyed the Abode which is on a pedestrianised street. We decided to eat out in the evening as there are so many restaurants next to the hotel. But we did have the breakfast in the morning which was wonderful and the service very good. We would definitely recommend as it is so easy to visit Canterbury sights.

Room Tip: Stay in top floor room at the back of the hotel which are quieter
