Stayed 3 nights at Clare Ellen and found the B&B to be very good. Excellent off street parking at the rear of the property - a bonus when Canterbury is full of double yellow lines everywhere! The Owner was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and restaurants, albeit we had chosen the latter from TA reviews and were not... More

Nice place, shame about the ultra early 10am check out time - WAY too early for a Sunday morning. Dinner and drinks on Saturday night meant that we were tired all day Sunday. Breakfast was 8-9 also a bit early for a weekend. Other than that very nice and very friendly staff.

I came to settle my daughter into Kent University and stayed at the Clare Ellen Guest House for six days, after which I went to London and then came back for one night. I could not have felt more welcome. The proprietor was genuinely concerned for my comfort and even allowed me to leave some luggage when I went to... More

Well, I can only say what I usually say! We return to the Clare Ellen every year, and love it. It is a good walk along Wincheap into the centre, but the price of the B&B reflects the location, and we quite enjoy the walk, watching the cathedral appear over the rooftops. I thought all the rooms were refurbished but... More

This bed & breakfast is a nice Victorian old house. As I used to live in England and know how difficult is to keep old houses in good condition, I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanness of this one. Most rooms have been renovated, not the one assigned to us, but in spite of that it was very clean and... More

Staff was very friendly and kind. Breakfast was great. Most rooms have been renovated, but the family room we had on the top floor was not (carpet in the bathroom, not a decent shower, carpet rather worn, one mattress was very bad). However, the room did have a fridge and a modern TV. Good parking possible, 15 minute walk into... More

Located in a tucked away neighborhood of Canterbury, barely a 15 minute walk to the city centre, this B&B is reminded me of home. The rooms were comfortable and spacious enough, for a Victorian house, I could see the cathedral from my room. However beware of being stuck with a rather small bathroom! The tea and coffee making facilities were... More

This place is friendly and welcoming. I stayed for 2 nights in a single which was huge with 3 single beds. Nice bathroom with 2 doors between the bedroom and it which might be useful for 3 occupants. i would reccommend it.
