We stayed here for a wedding last summer. The accomodation is very nice and well kept but the feel of the place is far too prim and proper with no character. One of our party had a terrible migraine in the morning and could not leave at the 10:00 departure time. Asking for an extra hour to get her some... More

We had a good weekend in Canterbury staying at this charming B and B. It is a easy walk from the station and into the centre of town. It is a lovely old building and we had a very pretty room, if a bit small. The shower room was a bit small but had everything we needed. The room was... More

Had an excellent stay at Magnolia house, wonderfully dressed in Christmas decorations. Lovely, good sized room with fresh milk in the fridge for tea/coffee. A good hearty breakfast, and friendly owner. Excellent location too - good stuff. Highly recommended.

I have stayed at Magnolia House at least 10 times when regularly visiting Canterbury and it never fails to please. It is way, way better to other similarly priced accommodation in the city which I have to resort if I've left it too late to book Magnolia. The house is always warm and welcoming and I really don't recognise some... More

On booking several months before, i was asked to give my exact arrival time which i thought was a little odd.

We were lucky enough to stay for the friday, and saturday nights, whilst in Canterbury for a wedding, and the owner, Isabel, could not have been more welcoming. Once allocated rooms, we adjourned to the beautiful garden to sit in the sun, before going out for a meal. The location is so close to the city centre, it was easy... More
