We stayed 3 nights to explore Canterbury. On arrival, the luggage was unloaded at the front door and passed to the friendly and welcoming owner who handed us a car park voucher for 3 nights (£6 per 24 hours) in the car park just 100 yards away. Then we were shown to our room which was spotlessly clean, very comfortable... More

My partner and I stayed at the White House as part of a weekend visiting Kent and our choice of hotel could not have been better. The period property is immaculately presented externally and internally, it is tucked away just a couple of minutes walk from the city centre with plenty of secure parking nearby, the bed was of very...

I had the pleasure of staying in the White House for a night and I wish I had stayed longer! I got Room 1 which was very comfortable and clean. Adrian is an affable host, and it felt more like staying in a home than at a B&B. Plus, the breakfast in the morning was a great start to my... More

Every year my daughter and I spend a weekend together in the UK and this years trip was superb, TWH is beautiful and the owners have ensured the many original features have been kept. Adrian was a helpful host, our room was spacious with a big comfy superking bed and plenty of hot water for the large shower. A delicious... More

As good as all the other reviews which had guided us to this excellent b & b well located near the centre of the city with so many sights and eating choices very near. Lovely room, good breakfast with quality ingredients - what more could you want?

This is the fourth or fifth time I've stayed here, and there is no need to look for anywhere else: It's on a street that is quiet, yet within walking distance of the station, shopping, river walks, cathedral, or other things you might want to see. The beds are comfortable; the rooms are clean; the showers are hot; most of... More

Located just off the main street in the center of Canterbury is this cozy little B&B, with comfy beds and clean rooms (at least the one we stayed in), good breakfast and a very welcoming and helpful host, Adrian. We stayed for four nights over easter, and was very pleased with the place. The nightlife was lively, so it was... More

Thank you for a very peaceful stay. A lovely clean room and a friendly welcome. Adrian and Sharon are fantastic hosts. We had a wonderful one night stay and got a great rest. Bed is so comfy and the shower is brilliant! Great location too. Don't consider staying anywhere else in Canterbury. We will be back again soon!
