About Canterbury ex Thanington

Originally a Georgian farmhouse, the Canterbury ex Thanington Hotel (formerly the Thanington Hotel) building was constructed in the 1700s. Guests find that historical charm blends smoothly with modern conveniences.

Rooms include complimentary Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. Wall safes help guests secure valuables, while in-room trouser presses let them fix clothes that got wrinked in suitcases.

Guests of the Canterbury ex Thanington Hotel have access to amenities including a spa, enclosed garden and indoor pool. Free parking is offered, too.

A full English breakfast is offered in both of the hotel’s dining rooms. Lighter options and vegetarian choices are available upon request. Also, the hotel has a private bar that features more than 100 types of single malt whiskeys.

The elegant Canterbury ex Thanington Cathedral is a short distance from the hotel. Furthermore, the Marlowe Theatre is close enough to get to on foot. It offers an enticing programme of ballet performances, plays and similar events.
