We spent three nights here - the guest house is a 10 minute walk from the centre of Canterbury along the river so very convenient. The room was comfortable and the hosts welcoming. Two reasons whyi I've not given a five star rating- our room was at the front of the house, and the road outside was incredibly busy -... More

Lovely B&B. Very welcoming and friendly owners. We stayed for one night as a weekend get away. Breakfast and room (stayed in room 3) were lovely. Beautiful 10 minute walk along the river to get to town. Parking was on the small/tight side but was luckily not many cars there upon arrival (reversed in to which made getting out a... More

We were lucky to get accommodation for our stay over but we're surprised at the quality and price. Sandra and Dave the hosts were excellent and the breakfast was cooked to perfection by Sandra with Dave doing a great job taking and delivering orders. Although I and my wife have problems walking we found the location was very accessible to... More

St Stephens is a lovely guest house with very friendly hosts, David and Sandra, who will advise you on where to go and what to see during your stay. After reading some of the reviews we asked for a room at the back or side of the house as it is situated on a roundabout and therefore has some traffic... More

Had two rooms - one double, one twin. Great location (10min walk to the city centre along a riverside walk). Delicious cooked breakfasts and continental had good choice. Very lovely owners. Private parking was a huge bonus. Pretty bedrooms and slept like babies.

Expect a warm welcome from David and Sandra, close attention to your likes and dislikes at breakfast, and any help they can offer. Their delightful approach encourages a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the dining room. Whilst not luxurious (this is reflected in the cost), the room was very clean, very comfortable, and incredibly quiet considering the guest house is... More

I stayed in a single room at the back of the house. The room was well-decorated and clean. Though the guest house is located on a busy roundabout I didn't hear any noise from the street and had a very pleasant night's sleep. Sandra was very helpful and provided me with a map and directions to a local restaurant. Breakfast... More

I stayed in this guest house for Holy week and Easter after a stay in the same house several years ago. Despite a change of ownership it was as good as I remember if not actually even better. The room was comfortable and clean and serviced well each day with a change of linen midweek. Breakfast was outstanding with a... More

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!
