I was going to refer to this old favourite as a "home from home" but at home, people tend to expect you to fend for yourself. For Paul and his wonderful team at the Millers, nothing is too much trouble. I have just finished a five night stay and for all five days and evenings everyone here has been cheerful, helpful and friendly. Great breakfasts, excellent beer and wine and first rate location make this a top stay. Please try and improve the wi-fi however - the only thing remotely amiss.

Tucked away in a quiet corner of central Canterbury this delightful hotel, bar and restaurant is just what one needs when visiting this historic city. Conveniently located within walking distance of the iconic Cathedral, as well as the many other superb attractions and restaurants on offer. Manager and staff pleasant and informative. Look no further when staying in Canterbury!

Back from an amazing stay at The Millers Arms.... staff did all they could to ensure we felt at home. Firstly, we were stuck in traffic so wouldn't have arrived in time for food, but we rang ahead and were greeted with our meals ready when we got there! Rump steak cooked to perfection, delicious! Paul, the manager, fantastic guy, so friendly and helpful! Our room was incredible, we stayed in "Millers", huge bed, slipper bath (with shower over) very calming room with plenty of tea, coffee and bottled water... even had a recycling bin! Breakfast was included in our stay and again, can't fault the food.... had avocado , poached eggs on sourdough bread with bacon on the first morning and the full English the next day, plus there is an abundance of fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt and fruit juices should you want something cold... The hotel is in an beautiful location and walking distance from so many places of interest... the pub itself is very popular with the locals and I can see why, lovely decor and comfortable seating, very welcoming. We will definitely be coming back! Thank you to Paul, Issie and the rest of the crew for making our stay so amazing! Mr and Mrs Miller

We stayed here for three nights, very nice, clean and spacious room with good facilities. The only negative was the shower which is over a claw foot bath and therefore very impractical to use. The hotel is in a great location, just minutes from the city and some great places to eat out. The staff could not be more friendly or helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts are lovely with a great choice and the evening menu is also excellent. Parking is not provided but we were pleased to discover that the hotel offered a discounted rate for the public car park, saving us at least £20 per day. Definitely worth a visit.

Fabulous hotel! Great value..central to everything Canterbury has to offer in a very pretty place and great amenities, service, food and room. Abundance of pubs in walking distance. On the river. Easy parking by hotel. Walkable to everything.

What a lovely pub and friendly staff! Just feel the prices are a bit hard to swallow at the bar, they are like London prices... Double g&t at £9 with prices like this they could add to the olde worlde feel by having dick Turpin serving behind the bar! Lovely place but be prepared to pay! (there are other pubs close by that are Cheaper so it's worth a look round).

Came here again with friends and this place really is a little gem. Rooms are clean and tidy with everything you need and the staff are still so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and 4 clean plates were returned to the kitchen, full English and Hash having been devoured. This is a Pub with rooms so it does get busy and can be a bit noisy, but it’s a Pub so no surprises there and we just love the place and it’s atmosphere

Millers Arms is a fantastic, close-nit vibe gem with just a 2 minute walk to the centre which avoids most of any nuisance noise i.e cars, people shouting. The place is absolutely picturesque with a stream running just outside across the road. Complaints are minor but i will break it down as quick and simple as I can. Location: Absolutely spot on. 2 minute walk to the centre, feels like it has its own dedicated road and stream running parallel. With residential accommodation surrounding they will close their bar around 11 so don’t expect to be drinking all night there. But 24hour Access is available to you room via a side door. Staff: Very welcoming , very professional and approachable Price and Rooms: Ah, now this is where my minor complaints begin and end. I booked two separate rooms, one for each night due to availability. My first night I was given a single room as my family where staying at another location. This room was called “cooks” and admittedly it was very , very small. The old saying “couldn’t swing a cat in here” literally applies. Even a staff member told me she was apologising in advance because it was not the best room. I appreciate honesty as the hostess and I shared a moment of awkward silence when she showed me the room. But you have to appreciate this is a historic pub built hundreds of years prior. But the price reflecting that room doesn’t add up. My second room on the other hand, well you’d think I was in a different place. Absolutely stunning for a pub room. Overlooking the small road and the stream of water with the soothing sounds in the air all night sent me right off to sleep. This was a double room and definitely made up for my previous night. Spacious , immaculate, felt like I owned the place if I’m being completely honest it was that good of a room. Total price for 2 nights came up at £180. My advice.... double room even if staying solo and request “millers tale” room. Food: well presented , tasty and good Portions, the unseen hero’s in the kitchen deserve a pat on the back as my breakfast in a pub, was above restaurant quality elsewhere. Overall: You could get a hotel and pay 50% more to be slap bang in the centre of town. Or you can walk 120 seconds to a peaceful, scenic and traditional pub. Clean, tidy , reasonably priced with a friendly and relaxing vibe. Stay away from those single rooms is my only nit-pick but I can’t take away too much from this gem. Recommended!

Had two lovely nights at the Millers Arms last week to celebrate my birthday. This is probably the fourth or fifth time we have stayed there. Had the feature room which was spacious and full of light and had dinner in the restaurant for one night of our stay. Really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. Found all the staff really pleasant and efficient so a big thank you to them all.

Big thanks for the very friendly welcome and nice help! We enjoyed staying at your beautiful place very much. The room was very spacious, the bed highly comfortable for great sleep and the bathroom with the old bathtube a traditional experience. We enjoyed very much the delicious dinner and kind service. Just a few minutes walk to the city center and a large public parking place with special hotel rate (6€ 24h) close by. It was just too short but we will come back for sure!
