An amazing night to remember
We originally booked a 2020 date back in September 2018, but of course since then, a lot has changed. All the staff at the hotel have been so helpful in helping us plan, reschedule, re plan and tweak our arrangements. We finally had our reception this weekend and I can only say that we had the most amazing afternoon/evening. Our guests have all said they haven’t been to a better party in years. The food was amazing, staff were fantastic and you can’t beat the setting!

Canterbury Cathedral Lodge offers everything perspective couples could wish for. When we first viewed the venue we fell in love with it, and our families shared the same reaction. The coordinators are brilliant, nothing is too much trouble and it was an added bonus that we could select our own menu. Pricing was very fair (intact we were very impressed with the overall cost!) The fact you can book all the rooms is a huge bonus. The main draw to the venue is the location, we have some stunning photos with the cathedral as a back drop. The gardens are beautifully kept. Canterbury Cathedral Lodge really is a hidden gem. Don’t hesitate in booking - you won’t regret it.
