“enjoyable stay”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

You cant see the house clearly from the road but the entrance is on the side off market way there are enough parking spaces. we stayed in rooms 2 & 3 both were very clean a bit on the small side but who needs an enormous room.comfortable double bed, modern furnishings, hairdyer, free wi-fi
selection of tea & coffee & biscuits. Large bathroom with bath & shower over, Toiletries supplied, this was cleaned daily and the bed was made daily. plenty of towels. (We would have liked to have stayed in the older part of the house but it was booked) Lots of choice for breakfast and the full English was very nice and big, plenty of toast and spreads, tea or coffee. The owners are very nice warm and welcoming. paper shop across the road for morning papers. very easy to walk into town takes about 15 minutes either by street or the riverwalk we will definitely stay here again when we visit canterbury

Stayed here whilst daughter was competing in a competition. After speaking with the other parents, we had the better deal. The room as very nice, tidy and clean. We had asked for an early breakfast, this was no problem. A shame we couldn't stay longer. We had the misfortune of leaving an item behind. This has very kindly been sent to me. Can't ask for anything more. Thank you

Great welcome arrived early BUT no problem as room was ready. Room clean, crisp and clean bright bath/shower room .Lots of towels, soap, shampoo etc, Lots of tea and coffee oh and hot choc...
It was an early summer day so took advantage of the comfortable seating to the front and basked the sun.
A short walking distance from town which holds a wealth of eateries for diverse pallets.
The owners have taken great care with protection and security of the building and patrons.
BREAKFAST IS better than most hotels, lovely breakfast.
If in Canterbury stay here @ St Stephen oh and a good and very fair rate,
I would stay again

This bed and breakfast accommodation was chosen for me but I could not have chosen better myself.
My room was large, clean and comfortable, breakfast was delicious and more than ample. The proprietors delivered a friendly service and nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: For a quiet modern room ask for one in the modern extension at the back on the ground floor.

Well I'm back staying at St Stephen's Guest house and I really am glad. Bedroom is well decorated, clean and I have everything I need for a really good 2 night stay. Sandra and David are again very pleasant and helpful - always a smile which is great after a long journey down from Edinburgh. Lots to see and do around Canterbury and this accommodation is perfect as it is so central that all you need. I'm glad to be back! I like the fact that you are asked when you want a cooked breakfast.

Just 10 minutes from the centre of Canterbury. Near to many restaurants and easy to explore the city. Good location also for exploring around the area too. The room was comfy and very clean. It was fairly small but was adequate. The bathroom was fine. Breakfast was very good. Friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere. Good value for money.

Helpful friendly staff. Sandra organised us with a map and directions round town when we arrived. It is very conveniently located and easy to get to. Our room was on the first floor and is not yet renovated, but Rome was not built in a day. It was a fair size and the bed was very comfy, but the shower and wc looked like they were fitted in a cupboard. I am sure this will change when the owners do the first floor. The breakfasts were delicious and they will go out of their way to cook you exactly what you want. A very reasonable rate meant it was busy and I am sure that is a reflection on the hosts, who know exactly what they are about and are efficient and very convivial. We would certainly recommend this guest house.
