A truly unforgettable experience!
A massive thank you to the whole team at the Lodge, and especially to Claire for all her help with the preparations and to Torin who was amazing on the day helping everything to run so smoothly. It was the most special day and we felt so lucky to be able to have the first reception on the Campanile. A truly unforgettable experience which we will treasure forever.

The day was literally perfect!
Dear Sandra, We are just sitting on the train to Edinburgh with a bottle of champagne and I wanted to say thank you so much for all your help organising a truly amazing day. The day was literally perfect and that was thanks massively to the amazing work of you and your team, we are so grateful. From the moment we arrived everyone was so helpful and attentive and helped think of every detail we may have missed or not thought about. Poppy and Danielle on the day were brilliant and took care of absolutely everything, and the night Porter Tom was an absolute hero helping us out with loads of last minute things or a late night glass of wine to settle the nerves. If you could let the whole team know how grateful we are that would be amazing. Thanks again and I’m sure we’ll be staying in the lodge again in the future to celebrate some anniversaries. Thank you Stuart and Emily

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.
