The location, room, welcome, breakfast and comfort are all excellent. The shops, sea and beach, restaurants and a pleasant park are all in easy walking distance. We would have loved to have had the time to stay longer. Well done to Marc and Jan.

We have just spent 5 nights staying at Marc and Jan's beautiful guest house. Everything about it was wonderful: the welcome, the room, the breakfast, the conversation, the service. Nothing they wouldn't do to make everything perfect. We will visit again. One of the best places to stay that we have found and will tell everyone about it! Thank you... More

Canterbury House was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble. Marc and Jan are delightful. I would definitely go back again. Fantastic breakfasts. Delightful spacious room with marvelous shower. Everything was spotless and small details such as cotton buds supplied just added that extra 'something'

We were back at Canterbury House again last week. We booked very last minute, the morning of our afternoon arrival in fact, as the weather was set to be good for the week. I'm so glad we returned. Marc and Jan offer top notch hospitality and very clean, comfortable accommodation. The breakfasts, which I believe they have won awards for,... More

Beautiful rooms, great breakfast, lovely spot - convenient to beach and town - and friendly people. Perfect. OK - it seems that isn't long enough for a Tripadviser review so I'll just add that there is a lounge though no bar. :)

Quiet location, convenient for both town and park. The rooms are spotlessly clean, spacious and well appointed. Marc and Jan make so much effort to ensure that everything is perfect! Nothing seems too much trouble.

The hosts were welcoming as soon as we entered the door. A very neat and tidy hotel with spacious rooms. Nothing was too much trouble, we were catered for extremely well and would recommend the hotel to all. Breakfast was delicious especially Marc's home-made jam.
