“Lovely B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

we stayed here for 2 nights and we found the room very comfortable.
The breakfasts were delicious and served very promptly.
Terry was friendly and helpful. The location was good-a 10 minute walk into the centre of Canterbury.

We are a family of 4 and all of us loved Harriet House. Third floor offered a two room one bath "family suite" with four twin beds. Room doors lock separately so best for older children. Rooms are modern, clean, updated, and comfortable. The hosts were friendly and very accommodating even when we were late arriving. Parking space is a convenient relief. Breakfast was delicious with many options including homemade preserves. Location is an easy pleasant walk to town along the river. Very Close to grocery store.

My daughter is in her fourth year at Canterbury university, and so we know Canterbury well, but left it a little late this time to book our usual hotel. However, we were really happy with Harriet House. It is spotlessly clean and the welcome was very warm. Our twin room was very comfortable - great beds and linen. The breakfast was excellent, ordered the night before, my daughter opted for the pancakes and they were really good. My cooked breakfast was second to none, everything was perfect. They are a couple of minutes gentle stroll along the river to the city centre. I would thoroughly recommend Harriet House for anyone who wants a home from home.

Just back from a delightful stay at Harriet House,which has it's own car park.The B&B is situated just off the A28 near Sainsburys,and is easy to find.There is a pleasant riverside walk into the center of Canterbury or just a 2 minute drive to car parks near Westgate towers and then a stroll along St Peters St to the historic area.'Cos we don't do stairs,we stayed in Rm 1 next to reception.The generous sized shower was spotless,as was everwhere else.There was a decent hostess tray and comfy bed for a good nights sleep.Breakfasts offered lots of choice to include homemade breads and preserves,whilst Terry and Chris were knowledgable and helpful hosts.

Room Tip: Room 1 is a downstairs room if you have mobility problems

We spent 3 nights at Harriet House, a clean and comfortable establishment with delicate colors that gives you a nice and airy feeling. The hosts are hospitable, friendly and helpful! Short and nice walk to the center of town. The breakfast was very good and with a great selection.

Room Tip: I guess the rooms facing the back of the house will be quieter.

Harriet House is a very comfortable and convenient bed and breakfast. It is situated within a 10 minute walk of the town centre. Terry was a fab host who went the extra mile (especially when we needed a screw driver to build something for my son who started at the uni!!)
The breakfasts, of which there was a good choice, were tasty and filling and set us up for the day and the rooms were very comfortable and well set up.
We will definitely be staying again.
