“Best "full English" ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

We chose the Wincheap for its location, reasonable cost and good breakfast, and it did not disappoint! We felt immediately comfortable--the rooms were well appointed and very clean. But breakfast was the highlight; it was easily the best “full English” we had over our entire 2+ week vacation in the UK! Joe, the owner, was helpful providing directions, travel advice, and even doing a little laundry for us. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

We just stayed one night in this bed and breakfast.
We had a Twin bed room "en suite" (as english people say for "with bathroom") on the back on the house that was quiet though small.
The Breakfast was full english and good.
There is a Parking at the rear of the house.
The City is within 5-10 min walk.
Joe, the host, is very nice.

A really great little guest house with free on site parking (round the back), making it an ideal base for exploring the historic sights of Canterbury. Joe the owner was extremely welcoming and helpful throughout our stay.
Four of us stayed for 1 night, in 2 rooms which were very spacious, tastefully decorated with comfy beds and great ameneties e.g. hairdryer, T.V and tea and coffeee making facilities. Rooms were also spotlessly clean.
Our breakfast the next morning was really tasty, we had a cooked breakfast and there was also the choice of fresh fruit, cereal, muffins etc.
Would highly recommend Wincheap Guest Hose to anyone, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay :)

Room Tip: room 4 was really nice and spacious, consisting of a double bed and two teins, grat for families or...

What a great little guest house, Joe and Val took great care of us and were very attentive. The place is spotlessly clean and parking is no problem. The breakfast prepared by Joe was one of the best I've ever had will certainly set you up for the day. The city centre is only a 10 minute walk which makes the place ideally situated. One lovely little touch was birds nests full of choclate eggs on the breakfast table as we were staying over the Easter break.
All in all fantastic value and service, we will return.
John & Sarah.

There were six of us, stopping over in Canterbury for the night. We had booked a double and a family room. Joe, the proprietor, greeted us and promptly offered us an extra room. Very kind of him and much appreciated. The rooms were very pleasant, in excellent condition, and the ground floor one gives access to a little patio. The location was very practical and easy to find. Within less than 10 minutes you're in the town centre (with its pedestrian areas and one-way streets - I'd rather be slightly on the edge of town). Breakfast was absolutely delicious with plenty of choice, good sausages and bacon done to a turn. All in all, an excellent place to stay.

My mate and I stayed here after a long walk on the north downs way, we had dropped in at Canterbury having never been to this city. I can honestly say this is the best guest house I have ever stayed at. The room was spotless, the breakfast was fantastic and Joe, the landlord, was a superb host - even giving us a lift to the train station the next day.
I would recommend this guest house to everyone - A++++++- happy days! :)

We (2 adults, 2 children) loved this B&B. Lovely sized family room, great location for Canterbury, and not too far from Whitstable and other seaside resorts. Breakfast was totally delicious and the owners really friendly. We can't wait to visit again. Fully recommend it. Couldn't fault it.
