This is a great little B&B. The hosts were friendly and accommodating, the room and bathroom were clean and spacious (room 3), and the location was to die for. Some reviewers have commented about the awkwardness of the narrow and curving staircases; but this is all part of the charm in staying in a listed property. I wouldn't recommend taking... More

It is a lovely little Georgian coach house positioned in central Canterbury so it is convenient for the cathedral, castle and all the restaurants and bars in the town centre. The room is cosy and although the beds are a bit creaky I slept well for both nights. The breakfast was lovely on both mornings with a choice of full... More

This B&B is in a great location. The rooms and bathrooms were really lovely - certainly beyond our expectations given the price, and we much enjoyed breakfast too. Ben and Joanna were very helpful and welcoming.

Ben and Jo are a young couple who have the gift of making you feel welcome, comfortable and secure in their Grade II Listed Georgian house in Watling Street, inside the city wall. You can leave your car on the frontage and walk to anywhere in the old city in 15 minutes. The good location is also pretty quiet so... More

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
