My friend & I decided to visit Canterbury and take in all of the sites so had to stay somewhere overnight...we found this lovely B&B. The welcome was really friendly, and breakfast fantastic (my friend pleased to find they had glutton free bread) Also brought us a fan as it was extremely hot that night. Throughly recommended !!!

A very friendly establishment, this B & B proved to be an outstanding holiday home from home, with a constant camaraderie provided by Nick Gunn and partner in crime, John. Ideally situated on the bus route to Whitstable, or a pleasant walk down to the city and bus station to all areas of Kent. My wife and I have spent...

We have stayed in the B&B a number of times over the last 3 years when visiting our son who was studying at the university. This was probably our last time for a while as we were there for his graduation. The reason we kept going back is simple - you won't find a better place to stay in Canterbury...

A clean and friendly B&B offering hot and well cooked breakfasts. The accommodation was very clean, with a comfy bed and well maintained. The proprietors could not have been more friendly or helpful. The place is situated opposite the University and is about a 10 minute walk in to the City centre. Would thoroughly recommend.

We stayed in this B&B yesterday, and from the jovial welcome to the last goodbye we could not have asked for a better experience. We have an autistic daughter, which can sometimes be a hassle when traveling, but there was no problem getting access to the kitchen so she could make toast at any time and were extremely accommodating with...

We stayed for two nights. The room was small, but comfy and very clean. Our room was at the front and we weren't disturbed by any traffic noise. Breakfast was delicious and Nick was very welcoming and friendly. We walked into the city (St Dunstan's church is on the way and worth a visit if you into history - or...

Just returned home after spending the weekend at this fabulous guest house. Was greeted by Nick ((the owner) who was very friendly and welcoming and couldn't do enough for you. Room was very clean and comfortable with ample tea making facilities. (Sorry forgot to mention I broke a mug when washing it up). Breakfast was served very quickly and piping...

If three seems a bit mean sorry they need apply attention to detail. Positives were the very warm welcome and the flower display outside. Room adequate for our needs. Mattress very weak/soft so not comfortable. Lovely walk in shower but lower part of door (none opening side) needs cleaning, the toilet roll holder rusty and needs replacing. Hospitality tray good,...

Welcome was fabulous, couldn't fault them even when I arrived 2 hours too early to check in. Given keys so we could come and go as we pleased, and parking permits quickly, nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Mum and I stayed as we were going to see Simply Red locally, nice stroll into town for food and...
