"Great experience in Canterbury!"
We are a family of three and we stayed one week in Canterbury. We definitely had a wonderful time there. The apartment is just ideal: very comfortable, clean and fully equiped. Really nothing to complain about. It's exactly as described on the website, and maybe more.
In addition, a local Sainsbury's is located next door: very practical for shopping. Having a car, we also appreciated the car park just under the apartment.
Last but not least, we were given a warm reception by the owner, who is a very nice and helpful person;
We recommend this accommodation to anyone!

"An excellent Executive Apartment in a great location."
Being very fussy about where we stay, this apartment ticked all the boxes when we were looking for somewhere to stay in Canterbury. Modern, contemporary design, clean, relatively new, good parking, good self catering facilities, and a accessible location close to all the places of interest in the City where we wouldn't have to drive all the time.
On arrival the apartment did not disappoint. it met all my criteria, and more. A home from home for us in fact, which helped us relax quickly and enjoy our short break.
Situated on a new residential estate with a Sainsbury City store just round the corner, everything was clean and tidy inside the apartment and outside. It was also very quiet, except in the morning around 7am when the Sainsbury lorry pulled up with deliveries for that day. We got used to this after a few days and it did not spoil our enjoyment of the apartment. Also for having the benefit of the shop close by, it was worth it.
Situated on what was part of the Cricket Club grounds the apartment would be a great place to stay if you were into Cricket. However we weren't but, it did offer us easy access into town on foot. Within 15 minutes you were on the High Street of Canterbury with more than enough shops of all types to suit all tastes. There is also plenty to see and do in Canterbury, so we were never bored. We must have covered at least 6 miles a day just strolling about. Great places to eat and drink are easily found in the city, especially along the west end area, The Marlowe Theatre is also worth a visit with some great shows.
Canterbury is also well located for the south coast. We visited the White Cliffs of Dover etc. The apartment is also well located for day trips to France, although we never ventured this far. We walked the Great Stour Way, but found this very disappointing.
In conclusion, if you have the same fussy selection criteria as us when selecting a destination and a place to stay, we would recommend staying at this apartment.
