You would have to be quite heartless to give the Coach House a bad review. During my stay I only met one person working here. She met me on arrival, cooked the breakfast and waited on the tables, and all while looking after a small child and with another on the way. I would not be surprised if she cleaned... More

I stayed for four nights in a single room with en suite. It was very comfortable and very clean. There was free wifi, a hairdryer in the room, a kettle with tea, coffee, and UHT milk, a small TV, and period fireplace. Nicely decorated and very clean. I was at the back of the property and it was very quiet... More

Had a wonderful 2 night stay at this excellent little B&B that is in a fantastic position, close to the centre of things yet still in nice quiet spot. Has a friendly homely feel to it and the owners are very polite and helpful. An excellent breakfast too with full English, omelettes and crepes on offer in addition to cereals,... More

We knew when we booked that this B&B was pretty close to Canterbury City centre but were surprised just HOW close. Out of the front door and within a couple hundred yards you were in the main precinct with all the shops, eateries and pubs you could ask for. We phoned ahead to see if we would be able to... More

I loved staying at the Coach House. It was a very refreshing change from staying in a too commercial hotel chain. The Coach House is run by a very nice and caring couple. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. The room was very clean, quiet, cozy and the bed was very comfortable indeed. More than that, It just felt like... More

Clean spacious room (room 3), warm welcome. The room has a separate bathroom which was a shame as it could so easily be turned into an en-suite as it is separated only by a wall where a cupboard is positioned and a radiator on the other side in the bathroom. The breakfasts were freshly cooked, a little sparse but acceptable.... More

Stayed for one night,clean and comfortable own bathroom but separate from bedroom. Breakfast was nice. Overall nicely situated but not noisy at night. Our visit was in December so walking around the cobbled streets in the evening was beautiful.

Booked The Coach House for two nights and we were impressed. The superior room was spacious and came with a large private bathroom with a good shower. The two resident cats (Molly and Pip) love being around the guests and really add to the charm of this place. The Narrow steep stairs could be a problem if you struggle so... More

We recently visited Canterbury and stayed at the Coach House. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Joanna who promptly showed us to our room, room 4, which was on the top floor. ** Note : The stairs are quite narrow and steep to navigate but as this is a period property they are in keeping with the building.
