We were taking our daughter to the university so the location of the CofC was ideal; only 100 metres from University Road. We paid £110 for a room for three. This compared with £94.50 for the Canterbury Premier Inn (including breakfast). The breakfast at the C of C was very good and the location was superb. We had room 4... More

We recently spent 3 nights at The City of Canterbury, our stay was very comfortable. Very comfortable bed with pure white linen, along with lovely soft white towels. Great size shower in the spotless bathroom. There was plenty of choice at breakfast, and the cooked choices were well presented, with plenty of tea and coffee. We travelled by train to... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. It is very close to the University of Kent campus and is a 10-minute walk downhill to Canterbury West railway station and the city (although with baggage, it is easier to take a taxi to the station). Our hosts were very friendly and went out of their way to provide extras... More

We stayed for one night. It is a lovely place and breakfast was delicious. Parking in Canterbury is expensive and scarce. Much easier to leave your car and walk down the hill. An easy 15 minutes down. Not so quick up again, but plenty of busses.

The city of Canterbury B&B is well located close to the city centre, although it's not really walking distance and is on top of a hill, so I would recommend taking a short a cab ride rather than walking. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated and the staff are friendly and welcoming. I stayed in the suite which was... More

We had a lovely stay for 2 night. The staff were wonderful, helpful and friendly. Our room and bathroom was spotless. Breakfast was great. It is only a 10 minute walk down the hill to the centre of town. If I return to Canterbury, which is a really lovely town, I would stay there again.

Stayed for 1 night while picking up our daughter from uni, which was just across the road from the guest house. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the suite at a reduced rate due to a mix up with our booking. This had a large bedroom with the added bonus of a separate sitting area... More

Great location if you are planning to visit both the city of Canterbury and the University. Best of all, they have great and friendly staff! I would definitely go back to this place next time i am in Canterbury. Highly recommended!

I've stayed three nights in this B&B and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Canterbury area, rooms were very clean, staff were friendly and helpful. Incredibly useful if you need to go to Kent University because it's literally outside the entrance. Only problem was that the WiFi was very inconsistent. Would stay again.
