    Kipps is very clean form the bedrooms to the kitchen. Staff take very pride of their jobs. Excellent facilities, close to town centre. Safe for night time. I have stayed in Kipps from Monday to Friday for my Final year at Canterbury Christ Church University and l could not fault the facilities. I will definitely recommend Kipps anytime a comfortable place to stayed and enjoyed the wonders of Kent!

    If the Kitchen could open at 7am, instead of 8am ?. It would help especially those who don't need breakfast, but just need the self service facilities to make tea or coffee to take away with them.

    Staff were very kind and helpful

    The furnishings and decor carpets bathrooms were dated and my room had a very weird smell but everything was clean so not sure what that was.

    The bed is comfortable

    Parking should be free but they charge for street parking , You can find free parking around the area. They have own parking spaces and they don’t offer it to customers, I stood outside in the cold and rang the bell for 10 minutes and no reply m, slow response from one young girl was doing everything, the atmosphere is dead no life, staff don’t smile. Typical corporation attitude dry and fake and demanding money for everything. No friendly faces there.

    The man at reception whose name was Shane was super helpful. The house is well decorated. The communal lounge is very comfortable. The kitchen area is very tidy, clean, and has all the facilities one would expect. Managed to obtain parking directly outside at an additional cost. Tea and coffee facilities in the room. Towels provided. Sink in the room where one can brush teeth and toothpaste, hand wash and face cloth was provided. Toilet had sufficient paper, sink to wash hands, and hand soap. Toilet products including air fresh spray was available. Visible signs to encourage less water usage etc.

    The double room was just a tiny bit too small for two people. The window we could not open. One of the guests brushed their teeth in the communal toilet sink and made huge puddle of water on the floor. Shower area was wet on the floor. Outside, there is a very busy road with constant traffic. Smell of the food that people were cooking in the kitchen. Another bathroom on the same floor would be ideal.
