“Great value”
Reviewed 26 April 2011

I stayed at this guest house with my partner over the Easter holiday. We were at a room at the front of the house on the upper floor of the house. The room was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and a better size than other B & B's I have stayed in. It is only about fifteen minutes walk from the town centre.

The road on which it is located is quite busy which can result in some traffic noise at night, but on the other hand it was is easy to find and handy when travelling out of Canterbury. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and Joe cooks a great breakfast. There were some nice touches, like a bowl of toffees and lolly pops by the door and a little hen shaped basket of mini chocolate eggs on the breakfast table at Easter day .

It is great value for money and I would use this guesthouse again if staying in the area.

We looked around a few hotels which seemed full and expensive. Wincheap was superb, Jo was very helpful along the way and room very reasonable, large room. Excellent location, 10 mins to centre and breakfast lovely. Def check it out!

Having lived in Canterbury some time ago and returning for a wedding, the Wincheap Guesthouse was the perfect stop over. The room was very spacious and clean and the breakfast generous. The owner was exceptionally helpful and welcoming and town was a 5 minute stroll away with none of the normal parking worries!

Reviewed 22 September 2010

We stayed at the Wincheap for just one night whilst exploring Canterbury.
The benefit of free parking helped us choose this Guest House, together with its location, and we received a very warm welcome from a very friendly host, Joe. We didn't have to "book in" at any specific time, because he had already asked what time, roughly, we would be arriving. Our room was very nice indeed – it was clean, as was the bathroom, and there were some very nice touches, such as biscuits and tissues. Despite our room being at the front, it was remarkably quiet and we enjoyed a good night's sleep in nice bedding.
The breakfast could not be faulted: there was a good selection of fruits and yoghurt, as well as cereals, with fruit juice; then came the full English, which was both substantial and of good quality; then came toast and more tea and coffee if you wanted it; there were also rolls, croissants and muffins. . . . We were stuffed!
Joe allowed us to leave our car on site after "checking out" while we popped into Canterbury for a few more hours before coming home. (The town centre is barely ten minutes' walk away.)
We really cannot find anything negative to say about our stay – nothing was too much trouble and we would recommend the Wincheap to anyone.
Finally, we also recommend the King's Head (just a few minutes' walk down the road) for good quality, reasonably priced meals and very friendly staff.
All in all, we had a wonderful weekend!

Reviewed 19 August 2010

Only stayed 2 nights, so in-depth review not appropriate. Didn't meet Joe (he was away), but Patrick comfortably stepped up to the mark.
At first glance, the Wincheap area seems to lean towards the industrial side of commerce. Indeed the guesthouse backs on to an industrial estate. But don't be put off, as this fact certainly paid no part in the quality of our stay.
Smoker in your party? Try to get room 1. It's on the ground floor with french doors that open out onto a little paved area with garden chairs & table.
Guesthouse has also won many awards for it's floral decorations. And you'll see why!
Agree with pretty much everything in other review, so won't repeat. Though I'd recommend The Kings Head for dinner. (5 minute walk). Reasonable, if not comparatively cheap prices, quality food, well cooked & piping hot. My partner had rump steak one night. Said it was the best she'd tasted in over 2 years!
