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.

Stayed here for one night as we had tickets for a comedy show at the Marlowe, room was clean, the host Debbie couldn't be more helpful, distance to the City wasn't as far as I thought, easy to park in the side street, would definitely recommend.
