I doubt that there could be a much better positioned B&B in Canterbury. Literally minutes from all key attractions and about 30 seconds from Whitefriars Shopping Centre. Parking as well. (New) owners are a young couple and perhaps a little shy of their guests and therefore not always willing or available to give information. No matter our room was comfortable,... More

Very central with free parking. Room was generous and the private bathroom was large too. Everything clean and stylish. We were at the front in room 3 but it was not noisy. A lovely stay in a delightful city.

The B&B is situated right in the City and everything is within a walking distance. You couldn't find a more perfect location. The house is a beautiful old house with a lot of character. We stayed in a family room which was very spacious and the bathroom was very big as well. The whole place was really clean. We had... More

The hotel is situated right in the City just inside the old city wall. Everything you could want is within walking distance - the cathedral, the shops, restaurants and other attractions. We only stated one night with our daughter who was viewing the University. We stayed in a very spacious triple room which had its own large bathroom. We booked... More

Me and my girlfriend booked for Valentine's Day and i have nothing but good things to say about our stay at The Coach House. I had to email a couple of times to make various requests and the emails were answered promptly and everything possible was done to accommodate us. Our room was gorgeous; clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. We... More

This is an honest review compared to similar places we have stayed. I will start on a positive. Great location right in the centre of Canterbury and free parking, although as all the spaces out front were taken, we had to park round the back which is a bit of a trek with luggage. After that I'm afraid it all... More

Location: The Coach House is a short (and very pretty) walk from Canterbury East train station, and right in the centre of town. The cathedral and a variety of lovely pubs and restaurants are all close by - I'd recommend The Parrot (oak beams, good pub food and a roaring fire) as well as Cafe du Soleil, where we spent...

I had made a booking 3 months prior to my trip and got a confirmation from Claire. When I reached the Coach House with my family, I saw a note from Claire mentioning that she is out and provided a telephone number. I called but there was no response. So I took my family for dinner. It was after many... More

What a gem... If your stopping in Canterbury, you could not find a better located place to stay... Minutes from the high street and restauants, and a short walk to the cathedral and Marlowe theatre... From the minute you arrive at this quaint and quirky b&b, along with the delightful Clare and Carol, nothing is too much trouble... If you... More

The Coach House offers nice and spacious rooms, with seperate private bathrooms. It is an old building with surprisings stair cases. The house is located at the edge of the pedestrian zone in the city center. There are about 4 parking spaces at the house, a big parking house is at walking distance. The breakfast was good, but a little... More
