This is a very good small and friendly B & B near centre of Canterbury without being directly in it. I was allocated a very comfortable stylish single room with everything I could need available including TV, fridge, towels and toiletries. There was a very tasty breakfast served for me in the morning at a time that I could specify... More

we stayed here after reading the reviews, but a few things I would point out, we arrived early and asked if we could leave our bags if we arrived early to be told no as we go out shopping, so we had to take our bags around with us all day, it says free Wi Fi but doesnt point i... More

This review is full of untrue statements. The guest may be muddling up the facts in the 4 months it has taken to write the review since they stayed with us. Guests are most welcome to drop bags early on in the day if pre arranged and preferably before 11.30am. On this occasion it was not pre arranged. Our booking... More

We chose this B&B purely for it's location and I must say we were not disappointed. The room was clean and nicely decorated with a lovely bay window looking out over fields and stream. Although the weather was chilly outside, our room was warm and bright. The on suite was rather small and perhaps a smaller basin would help manoeuvrability... More

This is the second time I have stayed in this B&B as the first stay was so fantastic. The rooms are clean, service and attention to detail are fantastic. Would happily recommend and will definitely stay again if I'm ever in Canterbury!

Great location only 10 mins from city centre. Friendly and inviting, well worth the visit. Breakfast was delicious and there was plenty to choose from. Clean and tidy rooms. Had a lovely time. Would highly recommend!

We love our location, near the centre but tucked away with a lovely riverside stroll into town. We have recently tweaked our breakfast menu. Glad that you approve!! More

Our 3rd stay in as many years and yet again the service was faultless!! Thank you for a very comfortable stay....Harriet House feels like our second home!! Only 10 minute river walk from city centre. If you read any reviews that say otherwise they got lost.

The night my parents spent at Harriet was actually a birthday present. We liked the photos on the site and also found it quite handy to be able to book a room via the internet. From what I gathered, my parents really enjoyed their break at Harriet House and they recommend it! They had a great time in Canterbury too.... More

We asked about restaurants and was given a great little Italian restaurant which we went to on Sat eve. Sunday breakfast was great and we had a good... More

I recently had to spend a few days on a business trip in Canterbury and for a change, travelled by train (from the north of England); this meant that I would need digs close to the area I was visiting and Harriet House came up trumps. A warm welcome, with handy advice on what the area offered set me up... More
