Just returned from spending 4 nights with Marc and Jan at Canterbury House. We had a wonderful time. The room was beautiful, clean and had everything we needed. The breakfast was lovely and nothing is too much trouble. Marc and Jan are great hosts. The welcome and attention is second to none. This is a wonderful place to base a... More

This could quite possibly be the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Absolutely charming hosts, spotless, beautifully decorated, nice communal areas and a stunning breakfast! The breakfast consisted of a cooked to order full english (as well as kippers and vegetarian options) and a lovely help-your-self area with probably the best yoghurt-granola pot I have eaten! Nice touch having... More

We stayed for a week and cannot praise this B & B enough. Marc and Jan are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Beautifully clean. Showers powerful and easy to use. Modern rooms with very comfortable beds and good quality bed linen. Superb breakfasts. Have booked for next year, can't wait.

An excellent guest house, with lovely food, friendly and professional host and hostess and comfortable rooms that are spotlessly clean, this was my third visit and have booked again for next year. The property is in a good location, within walking distance of town centre but quiet and in a nice area with parkland next door.

The B&B is situated about 10 minutes walk from the sea front just off the high street. It has a well kept appearance from the outside and we were greeted by the owner when we arrive. He showed us to our room which was clean and modern with enough room to store our rucksacks and spread out. The owner then... More

I have stayed at Canterbury House on three occasions and Marc and Jan are always the same - friendly and helpful with a great sense of humour. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. Each time I've stayed I've been given the same room which is nicely decorated and very clean. The bed is extremely comfortable, the lighting's really good... More
