Stayed here for a graduation, which appears to be one of the main reasons people require accommodation for that time of the year, considering the high number of students in Canterbury. As stated the room was nice, but the attitude of staff was very stiff and uncaring. We were asked several months in advance to give our EXACT arrival time....

We stayed here for a wedding last summer. The accomodation is very nice and well kept but the feel of the place is far too prim and proper with no character. One of our party had a terrible migraine in the morning and could not leave at the 10:00 departure time. Asking for an extra hour to get her some...

We had a good weekend in Canterbury staying at this charming B and B. It is a easy walk from the station and into the centre of town. It is a lovely old building and we had a very pretty room, if a bit small. The shower room was a bit small but had everything we needed. The room was...

Had an excellent stay at Magnolia house, wonderfully dressed in Christmas decorations. Lovely, good sized room with fresh milk in the fridge for tea/coffee. A good hearty breakfast, and friendly owner. Excellent location too - good stuff. Highly recommended.

When we arrived after a long drive we were both pleasantly surprised to be offered drinks and biscuits in the lounge to relax with before been shown to our room, very helpful staff even helping with luggage. The room itself was wonderful everything you could imagine was there waiting from a mini fridge...

I have stayed at Magnolia House at least 10 times when regularly visiting Canterbury and it never fails to please. It is way, way better to other similarly priced accommodation in the city which I have to resort if I've left it too late to book Magnolia. The house is always warm and welcoming and I really don't recognise some...

I had booked two rooms in Magnolia House for one night as my daughter was graduating on the following morning. On booking several months before, i was asked to give my exact arrival time which i thought was a little odd. I promised to let the owner know nearer the time and emailed her a couple of weeks beforehand with...

We were lucky enough to stay for the friday, and saturday nights, whilst in Canterbury for a wedding, and the owner, Isabel, could not have been more welcoming. Once allocated rooms, we adjourned to the beautiful garden to sit in the sun, before going out for a meal. The location is so close to the city centre, it was easy...
