The hotel is currently closed due to Tier 3 restrictions

04 Nov 2020

Dear Guest,

In light of current government guidelines, meaning guests are unable to stay overnight for leisure purposes, we regret that the hotel will remain closed after the national lockdown due to Kent being in Tier 3. Canterbury Cathedral Lodge will be required to temporarily close to limit the spread of the Coronavirus outbreak.

I know this will be extremely disappointing for so many of you looking forward to staying at the hotel in November and I would like to reassure you that our reception team will be in contact with each of our guests with bookings prior to the 30th December. If you would like to get in touch with us regarding a bedroom booking, please contact us by email at or if you have an event query, please contact us at

Combating this outbreak and keeping our guests and staff as safe as possible has to be our priority. We sincerely value the relationship we have built up with our guests over the years, with so many feeling like friends. On behalf of the whole Lodge team, we are really looking forward to welcoming you back to the hotel again, just as soon as we are able to.

We will,of course be in touch with you via our social media channels and via our e-newsletter on a regular basis to update you on the re-opening of the hotel. However in the meantime, I’d like to take this opportunity to send you and your family my warmest good wishes for the future and to thank you once again for your kindness, understanding and support during this difficult year.

Canterbury Cathedral is also closed to the public for services, however will remain open for private pray. The resident clergy will continue to maintain daily services which will be live streamed on the Cathedral’s website.


Yours sincerely


Richard Moppett

General Manager
