We only stayed for one night but I wish we could have stayed longer! The room was clean, beautiful and comfortable, and you are very close to the heart of Canterbury, all you would expect from a top notch B&B. But what really sells this place is its hostess! Debbie is absolutely charming and puts so much effort into just... More

I had a lovely time in Canterbury thank to Debbie and her husband that made my staying very cosy and warm. The bed and breakfast is not far for the town centre and with 10 minutes walk you can reach the cathedral. Around there there are shops, pubs and restaurant in case you do not want to adventure to the... More

Stayed for two nights whilst attending neice's graduation at Canterbury Cathedral. Had tried to book Premier Inn, Travel Lodge etc to find everything fully booked because of graduation visitors. Bed and breakfast is often better than any Hotel and this was the case with Carena. Debbie is extremely hospitable, helpful and runs an extremely professional business with a personal touch....

A lovely B&B which offers what the website promises. It's really close to the city centre (10 mins on foot), the rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Debbie is an amazing host, really friendly and always made sure I had everything I needed. Highly recommended.

Spent six nights at Carena. Wincheap isn't in the best shape, but is well located for both Canterbury East station and the city centre; there's also a good supermarket nearby. My single room at the top of the house was small, but clean and comfortable; road noise wasn't an issue despite being on a main road. The shower was also... More

Five of us stayed in the B&B for two nights. It is very close to town (about a 10 minute walk). Our double bedroom was very comfortable. The breakfast was lovely and Debbie was happy to work around our lie-ins, which we appreciated! A great stay and we were made to feel very welcome - so thank you!

Carena House is in a great location for the centre of Canterbury and Canterbury East train station - a 15 minute walk. A nice breakfast is served with cereal and fruit before the full English. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The owner is very helpful and gives great recommendations for restaurants and things to do.

My second stay at Carena House B&B in Canterbury, England confirmed my first impression of a comfortable, friendly and relaxing place to stay. Debbie is a fine hostess, very much interested in her guests and this is obvious by the care and attention she pays to them. Breakfast is excellent, too.

It is everything you want from a B&B. Location was good, only 15 minute walk to centre of town, also close to shops and buses. The owner was brilliant. Debbie is very kind, helpful and accommodating. Rooms are clean. Breakfast was great, cooked or not with fresh fruit every morning. Stayed for a week and was very comfortable.

We have spent a few days at Debbie's B&B and would definitely recommend it. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the breakfasts with fresh fruit and cereals and of course the cooked breakfast were excellent. The location is really good, just a 10 min walk into Canterbury and the parking around the back is very safe. Although it's... More
