Rooms were very hot. Bed was soft and low. Breakfast wasn't great

Holiday Inn Express Canterbury
Very Good8.0
First time experience
Friendly management team. Very considerate regardless how big or small the help needed by guests. Breakfast is always the main attraction, great buffet choices. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about dinner menu choices. Not many restaurants choices nearby but the Canterbury City could be the main dining location if you don’t mind driving to and have deep pockets.
