Spent the bank holiday weekend there and can honestly say that i'd go back gladly! Communication after booking was great, with quick emails and responses - setting everything up was smooth and the price was good. The location is ideal, it being about 5 min walk from the city center and the arrangement for breakfast with a local cafe is... More

The property was clean and big enough for three families to have a comfortable stay. The owners, Adelle and Sebastian, were most helpful and tips for attractions and trips around the are were provided. Parking space was big enough for a mini-van. Overall a lovely, well furbished house that I greatly recommend.

We have spent a night at the arthouse, were looked after fantastically by our hosts, who although not at the property were on hand instantly when needed. This B & B is in a great central location for the all bars, restaurants and Marlowe theatre. Would recommend it to anyone and intend returning ourselves.

Utterly snobby owners, looking down on us with our Northern accents. Wouldn't ever stay there again. Tacky looking art , no style have no idea why they call it an Arthouse. The bed was knocked up plywood with a hard mattress.

Please note that this review is questionable as was posted off the back of a repeated programme of Channel 4's three and four in a bed featuring the previous B and B owners. We do not have any beds made of plywood nor do we look down on anybody as stated in this review. One of the owners is from... More

We stayed a couple of nights at the weekend for a nice retreat-my partner went to uni here some years ago and we were revisiting some of her friends. Our first impressions were great, the place was clean and highly stylised, the layout is fantastic. A beautiful living area, diner and a full functional kitchen perfect for self catering. We...

We stayed in the garden room. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, the private bathroom was compact but perfectly fine, and we had a private parking space in the court yard which was very convenient. We met one member of the team (possibly the owner?) who was very friendly and polite. Where we were out of the main... More

Excellent concept. DIY breakfast if you wish - a range of cereals available and various coffees, teas etc. For a small extra payment you can go out for an absolutely first rate breakfast at The Refectory which is a stroll down the road almost next to the city gate. Pleasant room on the front of the house overlooking local streets.... More

We had a great long weekend in Canterbury staying at this wonderful, stylish place. The Arthouse is furnished and decorated with love and you feel comfy right away. Perfect for groups or families of 4 ppl but also sharing it is not a problem. The place was clean and the welcome warm and friendly. You can have a good breakfast... More

This is the third time I stay at the Arthouse: very satisfied. Decoration is lovely (the previous owners were both artists). There's a kitchen where you can help yourself to cereals, tea and coffee. Rooms are quiet; the owners live in a separate house. Perfect location for both the city centre and the University of Kent.

The Arthouse is a great place to stay, spacious and airy, and it is very close to the local amenities (as well as the train station). It is especially convenient if you are a larger group (4-5 people) and want a shared space, since there is a big living and dining room. There is also a kitchen and it comes... More
