This is the best B&B I have stayed in. Our room was beautiful, large, well appointed and spotlessly clean and the breakfast was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for Sandra and David, our lovely friendly hosts. My daughter and I were sorry to come home and will definitely stay here again if/when we return to Canterbury!

One of the best B & B’s in which my girlfriend and I have stayed. Hosts welcoming and friendly but not overbearing. Room to a very high standard and quite, breakfast (full English) cooked impeccably and plenty of parking. Location is perfect. Driving; quick to get out of Canterbury, which can get grid locked. Walking; 15 minutes into the centre... More

I spent there just one night, but I really appreciated the nice traditional building, the clean room, the quiet atmoshpere and the wonderful breakfast. The owners are very kind, smiling and helpful. The city center is a ten minutes walking. Definitely a really good experience.

St. Stephen's Guest House is about 15 minute walk from the city centre and about the same from the Canterbury West railway station. It's a lovely walk along the river to the centre. There's a nice pub maybe a 5 minute walk away and a newsagent's on the opposite corner. The location at the roundabout it not best possible. For... More

St Stephens is a lovely guest house within walking distance of the city centre. The room was small but comfortable and it was nice to see that hot chocolate was available as well as tea and coffee! The owners are really nice and helpful. They have an excellent cooked breakfast and at our request provided vegetarian sausages which were really... More

About 10 - 15 mins' walk from the Canterbury bus station. Hospitable owners Sandra and David. Our twin-bed room not big, but very clean and just newly renovated; enough space in the bathroom, which also looked brand new. David cooked us delicious full breakfast, the same as shown in the picture posted by the previous guest, plus the breakfast room... More

We enjoyed a couple of days just exploring Canterbury from here, whilst the kids were elsewhere. Nice room, friendly service, good breakfast... and our mislaid house keys returned to us in the post. Good service.
