This was my 2nd stay and my partners 3rd at Harriet House having returned because of our previous good experiences. I am pleased to say that we were not disappointed. The room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well appointed with everything we needed. The breakfasts were delicious and, as we were staying 3 nights I tried all the options! We... More

This was my third stay at Harriet House and again was provided with a comfortable and welcoming stay by the owners. This was the first stay since they had extended their breakfast room with a tastefully furnished conservatory added to the front of the property. It works well as the previous room had been on the cosy side. We had... More

Excellent clean room and friendly, helpful owners. A minor problem was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Very good breakfast. If in Canterbury I would use Harriet House again. Tripadvisor however need to do something about its insistence that reviews are at least 200 characters. This is putting me off making reviews and is completely unnecessary. I can comment on Harriet... More

I had a lovely nights stay whilst away with work, everything about the place was perfect apart from the wifi. I had things to do and couldn't, ended up using my 3G. The breakfast was lovely, my bed was comfy and the room quiet. Everything I needed apart from a good internet connection, thanks.

Very welcoming hosts in a nicely presented accommodation. Rooms were very clean and tastefully decorated but fairly small. Very good breakfast with a wide choice of food including home made bread jam and marmalade. Location was approx 10 - 15 mins walk along the river into the city centre and though close to a fairly busy road it was very... More

Having just returned from a week long stay here I felt I had to leave a review. We had a very comfortable bedroom with everything that we needed for our stay, the breakfasts were beautiful everyday whether we had continental or traditional (or a little of both,). We received a lovely welcome from Chris when we arrived and a lovely... More

This b&b was such a pleasant surprise. I arrived late on a Thursday night to find a beautiful house with a gorgeous outside area. The owner could not have been more helpful or welcoming. He printed a form I needed (that I had forgot to print) and had it ready for me by breakfast. He also had good knowledge of... More

We stayed here for 4 nights while visiting our daughter at University of Kent. The inn and our room was very nice. Very comfortable bed. Owners very nice, wonderful breakfasts. Enjoyed the coffee, tea and biscuits in our room every day. The wifi was a little limited, but adequate. It was a longer walk into town and to the University... More

Great breakfast and small but comfortable rooms, located nice and close to town. There was a view of the top of the cathedral towers. The parking was nice and easy too. All in all, a lovely night's stay.
