The hotel is set inside a Grade II-listed 12th-century timber-framed building, which has original period features such as medieval windows and exposed beams.

Rooms are categorised into Comfortable, Desirable, Enviable and Most Enviable plus the Fabulous Suite. The Comfortable and Desirable rooms are the smallest and most basic, but still better than most of Canterbury’s other hotel rooms, while the Enviable and Most Enviable rooms are larger with solid oak floors and extra like bathrobes while the Fabulous Suite has a larger-than-usual bathroom (with separate bathtub and shower), a massive living area and a terrace with views of Canterbury Cathedral.

The Country Restaurant is an upmarket place with a modern British menu that is only open for dinner.
Located next to the hotel reception, the ground-floor Champagne Bar is a lovely place with exposed timber beams where you can enjoy lunch, afternoon tea, dinner as well as cocktails and champagne.
