I had already emailed the establishment to tell them I'd be arriving late but still got called in the evening to ask for my arrival time. Friendly welcome and good wifi and shower. Location central. BUT....Cluttered hallway - full of kids' shoes. TV in room cut out after 30 minutes for no reason (this is clearly a permanent fault as... More

This B+B is very conveniently situated for exploring (and shopping) in Canterbury. The room was small, clean and the beds comfortable with a nice bathroom and excellent shower. The welcome from Clare's mother in law was warm and friendly. Clare herself could have been more welcoming. The cooked breakfast was good, however the service was very slow - not much... More

Stayed here for one night there were four of us and we had been booked into one room, however, on arrival Claire the owner offered us two twins at no extra cost as she had a vacancy. As we were leaving early to catch the shuttle she also agreed to prepare a packed breakfast, great service. As for the rooms... More

We are a large family (4 children) and were in Canterbury for a weekend. Clare offered us two rooms with an extra bed and made us feel at home. The rooms were well decorated and spacious, the bathrooms spotlessly clean. We all enjoyed the cooked breakfast and the Coach house's central position. The children are already looking forward to coming... More

My husband and stayed a few nights ago, I used to live in Canterbury and was really looking forward to returning for a short break. I'm glad we chose The Coach House as it is perfectly situated. It's a short walk from Canterbury East station, and also extremely close to the town centre. We came by train, but there is... More

We stayed in room 1, the room was not how we expected as the shower was open in the bedroom and although we had a private toilet it was not ensuite. The room was big, clean and well presented but a little less modern than the pictures on the website portray. Staff were friendly and very helpful, free parking onsite... More

After booking this b&b I looked at the reviews & was a little worried about a few things. I needn't have been. The b&b was right next to the town, yes there's noise outside, but what do you expect if you book a room in the town, if you want peace & quiet book outside of the town. We were... More

Location is fantastic. I was a little shocked with how different the place is compared to their web site-this is very misleading indeed and unfair on the customers. The photos on the website do not show how untidy the dining area and hall is. Not very enticing for customers. Bags, shoes, clothes, toys dumped everywhere. How is this a 4... More

Arriving at the coach house you are greeted by numerous pairs of shoes and boots littered about the hallway, it gets worse when you check in and the piles of shoes and children's toys old bits of wood and half painted walls in the dinning room. The most disappointing issue was NO HOT WATER for a shower in the morning,... More
