Five of us stayed in the B&B for two nights. It is very close to town (about a 10 minute walk). Our double bedroom was very comfortable. The breakfast was lovely and Debbie was happy to work around our lie-ins, which we appreciated! A great stay and we were made to feel very welcome - so thank you!

Carena House is in a great location for the centre of Canterbury and Canterbury East train station - a 15 minute walk. A nice breakfast is served with cereal and fruit before the full English. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The owner is very helpful and gives great recommendations for restaurants and things to do.

My second stay at Carena House B&B in Canterbury, England confirmed my first impression of a comfortable, friendly and relaxing place to stay. Debbie is a fine hostess, very much interested in her guests and this is obvious by the care and attention she pays to them. Breakfast is excellent, too.

It is everything you want from a B&B. Location was good, only 15 minute walk to centre of town, also close to shops and buses. The owner was brilliant. Debbie is very kind, helpful and accommodating. Rooms are clean. Breakfast was great, cooked or not with fresh fruit every morning. Stayed for a week and was very comfortable.

We have spent a few days at Debbie's B&B and would definitely recommend it. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the breakfasts with fresh fruit and cereals and of course the cooked breakfast were excellent. The location is really good, just a 10 min walk into Canterbury and the parking around the back is very safe. Although it's... More

Stayed here for 1 night recently, and found it to be perfectly suitable. It was close to Canterbury town, the room was lovely, breakfast good, hosts welcoming and friendly- the only downside was the cleanliness of the bathroom. There was a suspicious hair on the sink, and rust dripping off the shower hose causing an orange pool in the shower.... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our bed and breakfast. I am so very sorry regarding the shower hose I assure you it was perfect when I cleaned the room. We had tried a new strong chemical cleaner for the first time and possibly it was down to this. We have now addressed this with a new shower... More

I've been travelling to Canterbury for the past 3 years and have always stayed at the Carena. Debbie and Baz are very friendly and welcoming hosts and the rooms are always immaculate. They also offer an excellent breakfast choice. The B&B is not far from the city walls with the Cathedral and major sights only a 20 minute walk away.... More

Debbie's B&B was one of the highlights of our recent vacation in England. Debbie was a big part of it - very friendly and funny, and most accommodating. The rooms were bright and clean. Breakfast was delicious. Short walk to the city centre passing through parkland. Would definitely stay here again.
