We are regular visitors to Canterbury and usually stay at the Abode hotel. On my last visit the hotel was fully booked so I booked Chaucer House instead. The booking was made through booking.com but soon afterwards I received an e mail from Martin and Shelly with directions and other useful information. This meant I was aware that this was... More

Okay! First impressions. The map provided to find the hotel was pretty useless! But being intelligent we did find it after a short stroll, having parked our car in the local car park. St Radigunds - which was extremely good value for money (when booked with the hotel), and ample space. However a reasonably long drag with our case to... More

A friend and I stayed here in the upper circle room and we both have to say it was absolutely perfect and we loved it! Firstly for parking in the car park, big tip, there's a short cut through the gardens at the Marlow theatre. Anyway first impressions were great, really central location and easy to find. The house itself... More

Stayed here last night with my husband and could not fault it at all. Nice to be able to enter via and access code and not deal with a check in desk. It was like having a whole house to ourselves. Tidy kitchen with utilities and lovely lounge area. We stayed in the upper circle room again lovely. Clean crisp... More

Firstly we booked with breakfast - but once we had paid (could not cancel) the confirmation came through with room only. When we emailed Martin and Shelley - we were advised they has stopped doing this. Not too bothered as cafes are really near. Then went to get cream tea (still advertised on Booking.com) but no cream tea. They have... More

Initial impressions were very positive. The room was very well appointed and in an ideal location for exploring Canterbury. We had been doing this in earnest throughout the morning, had booked a very highly recommended restaurant that was nearby for dinner. We found the nearby car park and paid 16 pounds for overnight parking - something to bear in mind.... More

We stayed for one night (Sat 5th Sept) to celebrate our anniversary. I had read previous trip advisor reports. I must report I experienced no problems at all. We enjoyed the cream tea on arrival and also the breakfast the next morning. Its a lovely well decorated house in a great location. Quiet but very central. No complaints at all.... More

Overall we had a great one night stay in the Upper Circle room of this lovely house. The house is old so expect a few creaks and a very slight air of dampness common to all these very old properties (not helped by the fact that you can't open the bedroom window). Bed extremely comfortable, nice linen, bathroom really has... More

I booked this for our anniversary back in April. I have a confirmation number and turned up around 5pm to check in. The owner had double booked us and informed us that there was no room for us. He said he had tried to contact us, however no emails or phone records have been found. He obviously took a higher... More
