that we stayed in for one night only. I loved the room, which was on the top floor and had a romantic theme to it. The colours were very subtle and even the way the TV had been mounted did not detract from the feel of the room.. There are beams and in places the ceiling is lower and I... More

Hubby and I stayed here for a couple of nights and we loved it. We spent the first night in a Stable Room which was fabulous. If you are a light sleeper you may need the earplugs they provide as it is close to the railway, but it's more than well worth putting up with earplugs for. The second night... More

One if the best B&B I have ever stayed in. We stayed in one if the stable rooms which was clean, modern furnished and very cozy. The cooked beach fast was to die for, full of fresh, local produce and plenty of choice. The staff are friendly and warm and the honesty bar is such a good idea. I will... More

People make hotels, not the decor or style but this has both in abundance. We are tempted to down-rate the hotel in order that it will make it easier for us to book next time, which we will. The welcome was as many has previously stated, perfect and we had explained all the features even to the honesty bar with... More

My Wife and I booked the Paris Room for an overnight stay to celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary. We were greeted by the owner at the reception. We were shown around the B&B which made us feel comfortable and homely. The room was fantastic, clean, TV and DVD player (DVD library in reception). Very comfortable bed and soft linen. Tea... More

We found the house of Agnes great for seeing the sights of Canterbury, you get to stay in a warm inviting place with great use of the rear garden area to sit around if you have the sun. The old part of the house is very old world as you would expect with new style lodges at the rear. we... More

I've stayed around, so to speak, and nothing has come close to this place. They got it all correct--comfort, coziness, history, food, quiet and peace, garden, beauty, amenities, and more. I was greeted at this historical place by the receptionist who carried my bag up the steep Elizabethan staircase to my room, providing a quick tour of the place. The... More

Another wonderful stay at this gorgeous place, we stayed here on the 2nd of August and it is now our third stay here. Our room was one of the stable rooms, which is modern light and airy, it is a little away from the main building but it is just lovely. A nice size room with tea coffee biscuits even... More

This was a Great Place to stay. Everything was perfect. We stayed in the Paris room with its excellent bathroom being a staring point. The hosts were perfect with the introduction and just the right amount of making sure everything was okay, The Honesty bar is a great idea. Parking is great in a town where there is little but...

Just got back from a lovely weekend in Canterbury with friends, staying at The house of Agnes. Received a very warm welcome from the owner who showed us round the lovely hotel then to our room which was a converted stable room separate from the main house. The room was very nice with everything we needed, nice comfy bed and... More
