The bathroom had a shower with nice hot water and had all you need. The guest house was really clean and provided a very good breakfast. I have a gluten allergy and for... More

We had a fantastic 3 night stay with Michelle and Joe. We had two well equipped rooms. Both ensuite and with enough room for two peple. The original English Breakfast is very good, including fresh fruits and a selection of cereals every day. The hosts were a great help for planning our day-trips and finding good dining locations.

I must impress upon visitors to Canterbury how wonderful it is to stay so close to the city but enjoy the amenities with a host who covers all the bases. A welcome smile, a lovely garden , off street parking and well cooked breakfast to suit an individual's requirements. Why stay in some chain hotel when such establishments exist. So... More

We've just spent 3 nights at the Wincheap Guesthouse and I highly recommend it. Joe and Michelle are welcoming and friendly, and gave us useful tips (especially regarding payment for the Dartford Crossing!). You won't get a better welcome, I'm sure. Our first floor room was spacious (family room, although just 2 of us) on the first floor at the... More

I just spent one night in Wincheap Guest House but if I had the chance I would stay more days. Booking the room was as easy as just sending an email. No paperwork, no prepaid, no credit cards... They had a room perfect for 3 people, clean, comfortable, quite, well decorated... I didn´t expect that, really impressed. The guest house... More

Fühlte mich von Anfang an geborgen und willkommen!!! Das Zimmer ist sauber, groß genug mit gemütlicher Ausstattung und sehr ruhig. Joes Frühstück ist ein vielfältiges Gedicht:mindestens 8 Sorten von frisch geschnittenenem Obst, Trockenfrüchte, Nüsse, verschiedenste Müslis, full English breakfast sowieso und leckere Cookies auf dem Zimmer, selbstgemachte (und auch abgepackte) Marmeladen ......bis zum Abend war ich gut versorgt.
