Historical Traveler Reviews Ebury Hotel Canterbury
Stayed at the Ebury Hotel for a three day break 21st April 2005, booked over the Internet. Everything was first class, although only a 2 Star Hotel the facilities, the food, the Staff deserve far more. We had a twin room overlooking the garden (No 1) which was delightful and the bathroom was beautiful, everything was clean and all the small touches ( shampoo, bath oil etc) that one would expect of a first class hotel were provided.
The breakfast is great, enough to keep you going all day, and extra tea, coffee, toast offered without having to ask. Also an indoor swimming pool is available in a seperate room across the garden, towels provided by the Hotel, a real plus.
Canterbury is a lovely City, the Cathedral is awesome, well worth a visit, so much history everywhere.
I can throughly recommend both the Hotel and the City.
Wowed by a 2 Star!
I loved this hotel. Our triple room was huge and and extremely comfortable and clean. The indoor heated pool was fantastic and the back garden quaint. The breakfast was a delicious traditional English one. We don't usually stay at anything less than 3 stars but this place was exceptional.
I Stayed at the Ebury Hotel the accomodation was wonderful, and the breakfasts were tasty. I was also very grateful to the receptionist who was on duty on my arrival (Sylvain) he was very polite and helpful.
A wonderful break at the Ebury Hotel
We recently spent a half-board weekend at Ebury Hotel in Canterbury, and very much enjoyed our stay. The hotel has an excellent chef called Jean-Pierre and our service thoughout was attentive. The room was spacious, and the en-suite had a full-size bath and shower. Canterbury was lovely, the cathedral breathtaking and the surrounding streets packed full of interesting shops. I must also mention the indoor pool, a must for a weekend away, and also the traditional cooked breakfast. We got a discount for booking on their website, and will definately return.
Dirty appartment and rude staff
When we arrived on Sunday evening in November the bungalow we had booked for the week was freezing cold and had not been cleaned since the last occupants had vacated. The bathroom was unusable, floor and china dirty, microwave a disaster and when we turned on the electric heaters one was not working. We were told by the rude receptionist that the cleaning lady was ill and no-one would be available to clean until at least Monday morning and that the heater had been working the previous day. When we requested a room in the almost empty hotel we were refused and advised that we could have our money back and leave if we weren't happy. We left.
We loved this hotel
Our family of 4 (mom, dad and 2 teens) stayed at this hotel in July 2003. Our family room was spacious and very comfortable. The hotel is immaculately clean and serves a wonderful breakfast in a lovely, clean dining room. The back yard is also exquisite with chairs for lounging and a table for picnics. It's a bit of a walk to the town centre (approx 20 mins). My only suggestion would be to ask for a room at the back of the hotel if traffic noise bothers you; the hotel is on a very busy street. Otherwise, enjoy!
Cottage at the Ebury hotel
We stayed for a week at one of the self-catering cottages at the Ebury Hotel this summer. It was our most enjoyable stay in England so far. The cottage was clean, tastefully furnished and equipped with all modern conveniences.
It is a great location for going on trips to Kent or even London. The city-centre is only a ten minutes walk from the hotel and yet you feel you are staying in a peaceful, tranquil place in the country.
We spent wonderful summer evenings sitting in the quiet and park-like hotel garden while our three kids enjoyed themselves in the indoor pool.
Stay at the Ebury Hotel in Canterbury
We had a lovely time at this charming hotel, indoor pool and great restaurant, much better than others we have tried. :-)
Ebury Hotel Review
We had a fantastic stay just outside the centre of the city at the Ebury Hotel, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the food was excellent, and of course there was the indoor heated pool, which was a god-send for the children.
We will certainly return there and perhaps stay in one of the self-catering cottages for a week, using it as a base to see south-eastern England.

Oh, there was SO much to learn and take in and SO little time to digest it all, I really wondered if I was up to the job!

Opted for a coffee thereafter at Burgate [5.7L] , mine turning into a Mexican spiced hot chocolate. Lots of the shops have the old charm lapped up by North American visitors. Not lots of tourists in town.
Off to the Castle which was just ruins. It was later used as a prison. Now just pigeons call it home.

... in love with the river running through the town encompassing the long green grass that swayed side to side with the current. It was so beautiful. I couldn't stop thinking about how it would feel to run my hand through the crystal clear water just to touch the hair-like grass that seemed to so easily entrance me. While I can now say that I have made my pilgrimage to Canterbury, I can't say that I will be ...
... to spot. :) Walking up to it was cool because the area where the entry is by a square that has a lot of old buildings. It kind of feels like you are transported back in time. You have to pay to get into the castle at the castle gate which is very ornate. You then walk into a larger courtyard that has apartment buildings as well as a help/welcome desk. Then there is the church. :) It was a lovely church to walk through with a lot to see. ...
