Quiet location, convenient for both town and park. The rooms are spotlessly clean, spacious and well appointed. Marc and Jan make so much effort to ensure that everything is perfect! Nothing seems too much trouble.

The hosts were welcoming as soon as we entered the door. A very neat and tidy hotel with spacious rooms. Nothing was too much trouble, we were catered for extremely well and would recommend the hotel to all. Breakfast was delicious especially Marc's home-made jam. A variety of hot foods and cereals were served, with lively chat and big smiles.... More

Another clean, comfortable stay at Canterbury Guest House. We truly look forward to our stays with Marc & Jan who are always willing to go the extra mile should it be required. Breakfasts are second to none, delicious.

Just back from a three night stay at Canterbury House. From the door opening we were made exceptionally welcome. Everything was immaculate, the breakfast was superb, a wonderful selection each morning. The cooked breakfast was all made to order and well presented. This was a recommendation and it did not disappoint, and hopefully we will be back. Marc and Jan... More

I didn't actually stay here but the landlord and landlady came to my rescue when I missed the bus to our campsite and my 3 yr old needed the toilet. I knocked on the door and we were instantly welcomed in by the lovely landlady. The place was immaculate, very clean and fresh looking. My daughter used the loo then... More

Dear Lou, thanks for the unexpected review on Trip Advisor. You knocked on our door in need of some assistance with your pretty little daughter. How could anyone refuse, and we certainly could not let you go without making sure you were back at the Salcombe Caravan Park safe and sound, it was the least we could do. Best wishes,... More
