The Falstaff Hotel has been a focus for hospitality in Canterbury for over 600 years. A traditional 15th century coaching inn, the hotel is steeped in history. Over the years the hotel has been extended through conversions on an adjacent Wood Mill and a former pub, The Tap.

Located just a few steps away from the Westgate Towers, the hotel is within easy walking distance of Canterbury City centre and all that it has to offer, including the world-famous Norman Cathedral, (designated a World Heritage site) castle, museums, shops and a choice of over 200 restaurants.

There are forty-six ensuite bedrooms and a beamed lounge which offers guests a place to relax after a busy day's sightseeing. The bar opens out onto a pretty outdoor terrace where guests can enjoy a drink in the summer months. The hotel offers a cooked full English breakfast, but no lunch or dinner service, however, there are numerous excellent restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

There is a private car park within the grounds which accommodates 35 cars and is free for guests' use. Alternatively, there is a public car park on North Lane, opposite the hotel, charged at 90p per hour during the day (maximum 5 hours) or £1.50 overnight charge.

On a main busy main road, very

On a main busy main road, very close to tourist area and with reasonable parking at the rear (Beware of the sticky secretion from the silver birches on your car!) The hotel is very shabby on the outside - needs painting and a new hanging sign. Our annex room was large (because is was a designated room for handicapped?) and well furnished. The bathroom was extra large, with rails for handicapped, but nowhere to place one's toiletries! It desperately needed a shelf near the wash basin. Bath sheets were large. The room was not cleaned very well during our stay and the drinks tray was not restocked. We were not offered a city map on arrival and were not told our booking included breakfasts until we checked out! (Cooked breakfast was very good) Smoking was allowed in the tiny courtyard so we had to walk through the smoke when we went to and from our annex room. However, the hotel room was comfortable, the food was good and its location perfect. Would certainly stay there again.

Nice hotel but avoid the rooms on the street

This is a great hotel with a helpful staff. My only complaint is that my room overlooked a main street which was noisy two out of the four nights I stayed at the hotel.
