The Falstaff Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

stayed three nights in room 7. the room is small and it was hard to move around our suitcases. creaky floors and pigeons in the window would make it hard for light sleepers - luckily that didn’t bother us too much. no noise from the bar but probably cuz we didn’t stay over the weekend. staff was very nice and breakfast was great!

Me and my hubby used to go here before starting a family. Staff are really friendly and helpful and always do everything they can to make your stay better. Stayed here for two new years eves (years ago) and even saw some fireworks from our window. Bedrooms are perfectly clean and beautifully decorated. Bathrooms are spotless. The bar area is really classy and cosy. Parking is really good. Great location if you want to wander off and explore canterbury. Couldn't say enough nice things about this place

One word : TOP Special ALL the staff was very friendly. A car park inside the property. Looking forward to our next visit. For a meal : go to "le soleil" or the Mexican "Les amis" both across the street.

We booked the Falstaff for an evening away from home and certainly was not disappointed with our choice. To start with, free parking in the centre of Canterbury is a definite plus. The check in staff were really friendly and after being shown to our room we went to the bar for a drink. The barman was super friendly too and certainly knew his drinks. We ended up spending a lot of time at the bar over the next few hours and all of the staff were excellent. We had a standard room, and it was a little tired and in need of some decoration, but was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Would definitely use the Falstaff again,

We celebrated my fathers birthday with an afternoon tea at the Falstaff. Decor was lovely, big couches and plenty of room to spread out! Staff were attentive and friendly and we really enjoyed the pianist. I'd had a cream tea here before, probably a year or so ago and the scones were fab, really big with a crust on them and they looked handmade. Fast forward to today and they are TINY. Great taste but they don't have the rustic, homemade (bigger) vibe anymore, I was quite disappointed. Go back to your large ones please!

My wife and I have always been fans of Canterbury and visit frequently. We came for a concert at The Marlowe and didn't fancy the drive home so looked for a close-by hotel for 1 night and found The Falstaff and were very pleased we did. We arrived early but were able to park up and go through the check-in process. The room was very quiet and comfortable. The included breakfast was one of the best "self serve" breakfasts I have had in a hotel - everything was hot and the sausages were excellent! Staff very friendly and the location couldn't have been better. We will definately stay there again when we next visit Canterbury

This looked promising, but things started to go awry. The first thing was the electronic door key only worked once and to get in our room we had to get it reset at reception. Accommodation was fair but our window overlooked main road and next door was Wetherspoons,guess the rest! Noisy traffic and noisy revellers around midnight. Another snag, the pub did not do evening meals, only afternoon teas. This meant a walk out to find a pub that did. Good thing was you are next to city centre there was plenty of eateries. Cathedral, five minutes away was spectacular!

Stayed here with friends and had a really nice time, very comfortable rooms has its own car park good buffet breakfast, plenty of bar's / restaurants close by the cathedral/ Canterbury tales experience is a 10 minute walk. their bar is popular Friday/Saturday evening serving a vast array of beers,wines,sprits and cocktails,champagne etc I will be returning i thoroughly enjoyed our stay

We had a Superior Room, which was beautiful with original wood panelling and a 4-poster bed. Staff very friendly and helpful, breakfast excellent. The decor downstairs is beautifully done and we enjoyed some very chic cocktails in the bar in the evening. Nicely situation 5 mins walk from the station too (Canterbury West)

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Falstaff for one night for my birthday weekend in Canterbury. Lady on reception was very pleasant and checked us in quickly. We were impressed with our room which was very quiet despite being located on the main road behind the hotel. Very cosy room, comfortable bed. The breakfast provided was nice, good sausages! The selection was slightly limited however can’t complain considering the affordable price. Didn’t try the cocktail bar. We were allowed to leave our car in the car park a little longer after check out to wander into town a final time which was generous. Overall our experience was positive and we would stay here again if in the area. Excellent location, very clean, tastefully decorated and good value!
