The Falstaff Logo Book

The Falstaff Hotel has been a focus for hospitality in Canterbury for over 600 years. A traditional 15th century coaching inn, the hotel is steeped in history. Over the years the hotel has been extended through conversions on an adjacent Wood Mill and a former pub, The Tap.

Located just a few steps away from the Westgate Towers, the hotel is within easy walking distance of Canterbury City centre and all that it has to offer, including the world-famous Norman Cathedral (designated a World Heritage site) castle, museums, shops and a choice of over 200 restaurants.

There are forty-six ensuite bedrooms and a beamed lounge which offers guests a place to relax after a busy day’s sightseeing. The bar opens out onto a pretty outdoor terrace where guests can enjoy a drink in the summer months. Why not try one of our cocktails before dinner at our beautiful bar?

There is a small private car park within the grounds strictly for use of hotel residents, which is offered on a first come first served basis. If you are not able to park in the hotel car park, opposite the hotel there is a public car park on North Lane, opposite the hotel, charged at £1.70 per hour between the hours of 0700 and 2100 Mondays-Sundays (free outside these hours).
