Stayed here as part of a surprise Birthday treat. Really really nice place to stay, room was lovely with a 4 poster bed and small en-suite (but perfectly suitable). Location wise you couldn't get better as right next door to the Marlowe Theatre and in the centre of town a short walk from anywhere. Canterbury itself is a brilliant city,... More

Nice little place to stay over and visit the city, welcomed by the host, parking sorted, map issued and everything explained with no fuss. Clean, tidy and great location, breakfast was really good - nice central location - would go again and recommend

Got a (very!) last minute stay here over the August bank holiday weekend as a result of a late cancellation from another guest. A beautiful building that feels part boutique hotel and part home...if only I could have a home like this! Adrian is a wonderful host and couldn't have been more helpful. Really engaging and great to chat with.... More

If you are looking for a good quality B&B in the heart of the city this is the place for you. It's in a really convenient location with a car park very close by where you can park for £6 per day. Cannot fault and hope to make a return visit.

An absolutely fantastic B&B just off Canterbury High Street. I've stayed a number of times and have always enjoyed my stay... that's why I keep coming back. The room I've had has always been clean with a lovely bathroom. Bed is comfortable and you have heating control of your own room - such a bonus. Adrian the host is tremendous,... More

This place was perfect for me... about a block from High Street-- close enough to all the action but far enough away for some quiet. The Canterbury West train station is only a 6 min walk tops! Adrian, one of the owners, was so kind during our stay. He accommodated our breakfast requests (my friend had a milk allergy) perfectly... More

This is a beautiful and comfortable inn with delicious breakfasts. It's on a very quiet side street just steps from shops, pubs, restaurants, and a theatre. Adrian and Sharon were delightful and gladly answered all our questions about transportation and things to do.

Undoubtedly a well deserved 5 Stars (and a few Planets). We were extremely happy with our choice to book the White House. After trawling through many reviews and making numerous calls from Germany, we had decided as soon as we had had our first chat with Adrian, (who runs the WH with his lovely wife Sharon), that this was the...

We came here for a couple of nights for a mini honeymoon after our wedding. We received a very warm greeting and they'd even left a bottle of bubbly for us in our bedroom. The bed was exceedingly comfortable and the room was spacious. The cooked breakfast was just the right amount. Last but not least, the location is perfect.... More
