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.

My husband and I stayed at this lovely B&B for one night as part of a weekend trip. The room was clean and comfortable, it was just a 15 minute or so walk into the centre of Canterbury and we received a really warm welcome on arrival. The breakfast the next morning was absolutely delicious, with everything cooked to perfection.... More

I booked this B&B, originally back in November for a single night as I was attending a local sewing course. When the course was cancelled at short notice I phoned Carena House and spoke to Debbie who said it was no problem to cancel the booking. She did not charge a cancellation fee and said to let her know when... More

My friend and I stayed in Carena House for 3 nights , after a trip to Southern France. We wanted to see a little more of England before our return to Canada. Good location - perhaps 15 minutes walk to town centre, and an easy bus trip to Dover Castle as well. . Debbie is very friendly and helpful. Excellent... More

This is a lovely bed-and-breakfast and Debbie makes you feel very welcome. Our room was towards the back of the house, it was very clean although a little small. Despite being on a busy road the house is very quiet although finding a parking space can be a challenge. Debbie cooked a sensational English breakfast to set you up for... More
