“Warm and warmth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

I stayed at Harriet House in the beginning of May. I’m Portuguese and used to better weather at this time of the year. It was really cold outside and I found nothing but warm and warmth inside.
The room was excellent and quiet, the breakfast a feast with homemade jam and all that you could eat. The location was quite good – just a few minutes from city center.
You should try!

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and found this B & B first class in all respects:- A friendly welcome, very clean rooms well decorated with modern furniture and very good breakfasts.
We would highly recommend this B & B to anyone.

I was visiting Canterbury to spend time with my daughter who is at the university. I needed somewhere that could store my cycle securely, and deal with a sweaty dirty cyclist arriving after a 100 mile down through Essex and into Kent.

Harriet House delivered on all counts. My single reservation was upgraded to a double as they were quiet that night. The room was clean, tidy; had just had a new carpet fitted. After showering and stowing my kit, I walked into town which only took 10 minutes and ate at one of the many pub/restaurants in Canterbury.

Breakfast, ordered the night before, was well cooked and the bacon just right with a bonus of a double yolker fried egg. Homemade bread and strawberry jam made for a personal touch.

Having a set of keys made coming and going no problem.

I cant comment on the single room size not having seen it.

I'd definitely stay again, though next time it may be by car. And that would be no problem with private car spaces at the rear.

All in all a very satisfactory experience,

We booked based on Rick Steve's recommendation. We weren't expecting too much based on the price, which was much lower than you can usually find here in England. We were greeted upon arrival and shown to our rooms. The rooms were beautifully decorated and laid out. They were better than many places I have paid much more for. The B&B was situated in a very nice and quite area so no noise from the town. The only slight downside was we were away from the city center, but it was still easily within walking distance. We had a choice between a continental and full English breakfast. Both were wonderful, choose based on your preference. The service was excellente, everyone was very kind and helpful. Highly recommend this place and would stay again. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Since needing to come to Canterbury more frequently over the last year or so I have stayed at various Hotels in Canterbury. However I wish that I had found this wonderful B&B right from the start. My friends and I were extremely well looked after, the breakfast was well cooked. Our rooms were neat and tidy and have obviously been well looked after by Terry and Chris. Each day we returned tired to our rooms they looked like they did on the day we arrived. Terry and Chris are lovely people. I hope that on my future visits to Canterbury that they will have rooms available as this is where I would love to stay here again and make this my"home from home".
