A classy city centre inn with comfy rooms and a warm welcome.
8–10 St Dunstan's Street Canterbury CT2 8AF 01227 462 138
A lovely, historic building housing a classy hotel – though many of the rooms are in a more modern annexe at the back. This 15th-century coaching inn, has been hosting visitors for 600 years and rooms in the old part still have wonderful dark wood panelling and original features. Family rooms and singles are also on offer, breakfast is included, and there's free wi-fi throughout. Right next to the Westgate Towers and a short walk from both the centre and Canterbury West station, it's a classic hotel in a handy location. Lots of parking space too.

The Falstaff is dead easy to reach. By train, Canterbury West station is just a few minutes walk from the hotel, and is served by frequent trains from London Charing Cross and Victoria and less frequent high-speed trains from London St Pancras, and Ashford International. By car from London, simply take the first signpost for Canterbury off the A2 and at the first roundabout turn left and follow the brown hotel signs. At the mini roundabout turn right and follow the road; the Falstaff is on the left just before you reach the Westgate Tower, and has its own car park.
Open all year.
