Excellent Value for an overnight stay
thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the Kings Head in Canterbury.
The room was not huge, but more than adequate for 1 night, and was well stocked with toiletries and hot beverages. Tthe staff were great, the breakfast was good, and overall it was top value for money.
Broken window frame & stained sheets ruined our time away.
Upon arrival at The King's Head Inn we were handed our room & front door key, & taken to our room by the barmaid where we were instructed to fill out our 'Breakfast Request' (i.e.
vegetarian or omnivorous). I had one further interaction with the staff the next morning when, for whatever reason, I was incorrectly given an inedible dry & dreary vegetarian breakfast congealed to the plate. I wasn't asked how it was & I was far too exhausted from lack of sleep in my noisy room to complain. The Inn lies on an incredibly busy main road, yet the front room in which my girlfriend & I stayed had no insulation from the sound whatsoever. To make matters worse the window was secondary glazing with a broken window frame which left a gap of about an inch to the outside - plenty of room for the traffic din to penetrate to such an extent that neither of us were able to sleep for the whole evening. And finally, to add insult to injury, the lower bed sheet had a suspicious dark brown stain on it about halfway down. I've never stayed in such an awful place in my life, & hope I never have to again. All in all we paid £70 for the privilege of having our weekend away in historic Canterbury completely ruined.
Great Place. Excellent for the price
I thought that the King's Head was great.
The people who run it are nice and happy to help at any time. The room was well furnished and clean, the bed was comfortable, bathroom was great and I had a lovely breakfast. The Manager also helped me to get a taxi when I was leaving. Great location.
Friendly and comfortable
Friendly comfortable hotel with all the creature comforts you are likely to need.
Sadly no chef when I was visiting, but there is a good fish and chip shop opposite and the pub are happy for you to bring back your own food. Tiny bathroom but adequate for my needs. Handy for work or visiting Canterbury. My room was roadside and did get a little noisy at times, but earplugs are provided.
A 15c Coaching inn with a warm welcome!
Compared to a sparkling Corporate branded hotel this place was tremendous.
admittedly it is a pub, with all pubby offerings downstairs, which you can join in of course. Wonky floorboards, Small doors, oak beams, a history, made a great change from the overpowering market chains. I wish the licensee every success & hope he keeps it going. they cooked me a fresh English breakfast, a hot cuppa & fresh toast, etc, tremendous.
Kings Head Inn
Stayed in room 2, the only down side is the traffic noise.
Bed and pillow were very comfortable, room tided each day. Breakfast is very good and large choice.
Kings Head Inn
Really enjoyed staying at the Kings Head.
A nice 15th century inn with character. Good location within a 10 minute walk of Canterbury centre. Very good breakfast.
Wonderful, friendly staff.
Went out of their way to ensure we were all comfortable. Extremely welcoming pub - made to feel at home by all the locals.
Very friendly, lovely room, full of charm but very convenient - great value
