Yorke Lodge is conveniently situated for Canterbury and the University of Kent. It is super clean, cosy but spacious and nicely decorated. The breakfast is excellent with a lot of choice and is in a lovely garden room. Vicky the proprietor is an excellent host.

Well appointed B & B near all the the main visitor's attractions. Very friendly and ever so helpful staff. Tasty and fresh breakfast served in a sun soaked conservatory. We will certainly stay here again while visiting this part of England.

Fantastic service, nice-sized rooms, super-clean en-suite, comfortable beds, nice shower, great breakfast... I hadn't stayed in a B&B for many years due to past sub-par experiences, but this place has me thinking B&B again. Plus dog-friendly, and perfect situation for a quick trip down to the chunnel.

The room and the ambience is cozy, delicious breakfast, nice views through windows and beautiful interior reflective of Victorian character of the lodge. The service is absolutely amazing! The lodge gives a very welcoming and homely vibe overall, making the stay worthwhile.

We discovered Yorke Lodge soon after Vicky opened 13 years ago. We've stayed many times since, and never been disappointed. Reception is always very friendly, rooms are always spotless, and well equipped, and breakfast is just what you need to set you up for the day. Canterbury is very well situated for us as we travel to and from Switzerland via the Channel Tunnel. Reaching Yorke Lodge at the end of a 10 hour drive is like coming home. And when it's time to go back to Switzerland, Yorke Lodge is a great place for the last night of our holiday, and means we can get to our train early the next morning. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for 5 nights whilst visiting some family in Canterbury. Vicky was such a lovely host which really made us feel comfortable staying there, almost like we were just at home. Vicky keeps the whole lodge super clean and in ship shape. Breakfast was fantastic and lovely to sit in the sunroom each morning. In fact all Vicky’s staff were also so friendly. The lodge is in a great location which is great if you want to walk into town for dinner etc. Another lovely stay, thanks Vick!!!

I absolutely loved my stay at Yorke Lodge. First of all, the location was brilliant-- a quick walk to the station or the main points of interest in town. The room was large, the bed was comfortable, and everything was clean and well maintained. The owner, Vicky, was absolutely brilliant-- the best combination of welcoming and considerate. It was a pleasure to chat with her over her delicious breakfasts. I would absolutely stay here again.

Our family stayed 1 night while attending an Applicant Day at the University of Kent. A very welcoming Vicky took us to an impeccably clean and comfortable room. Breakfast was freshly cooked, really good, and served with a wonderful smile. Definitely recommended!

From the moment you arrive, Vicki and her staff make you feel welcome. The rooms are homey and spotless and the breakfast is great with lots of choice. I particularly enjoyed the croissants with marmalade but the full English is definitely available too.

The proprietor Vicky couldn't be more helpful , friendly and efficient. The rooms are warm clean and comfortable. It is the character and charm of this establishment that distinguishes it from other B&B, whole place has a pre war feel about it in a good way that is from the furniture and fixtures and fittings to slightly uneven creaky floor but the bathrooms are both clean and modern. Good value and well situated with the St.Dunstans/West Gate part of Canterbury and the city centre within easy walking distance .Both the right side of town for the university and the best restaurants. Good value and it also has a small car park. I would certainly stay here again.
