Stayed with friends for the weekend at this lovely property. It is very central and everything in Canterbury is within walking distance. The room was clean and well equipped with very comfortable beds. There is a choice for breakfast of full english, crepes or omelette all cooked to order. There are also cereals, toast, yoghurts etc and lovely fresh juices.... More

This family run B&B is right in the heart of the city and not that far a walk from the rail and bus stations. Myself, my daughter and my sister shared a triple room with its own private bathroom up on one of the top floors. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a very relaxed affair and was all freshly... More

You would have to be quite heartless to give the Coach House a bad review. During my stay I only met one person working here. She met me on arrival, cooked the breakfast and waited on the tables, and all while looking after a small child and with another on the way. I would not be surprised if she cleaned... More

I stayed for four nights in a single room with en suite. It was very comfortable and very clean. There was free wifi, a hairdryer in the room, a kettle with tea, coffee, and UHT milk, a small TV, and period fireplace. Nicely decorated and very clean. I was at the back of the property and it was very quiet... More

Had a wonderful 2 night stay at this excellent little B&B that is in a fantastic position, close to the centre of things yet still in nice quiet spot. Has a friendly homely feel to it and the owners are very polite and helpful. An excellent breakfast too with full English, omelettes and crepes on offer in addition to cereals,... More

We knew when we booked that this B&B was pretty close to Canterbury City centre but were surprised just HOW close. Out of the front door and within a couple hundred yards you were in the main precinct with all the shops, eateries and pubs you could ask for. We phoned ahead to see if we would be able to... More

I loved staying at the Coach House. It was a very refreshing change from staying in a too commercial hotel chain. The Coach House is run by a very nice and caring couple. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. The room was very clean, quiet, cozy and the bed was very comfortable indeed. More than that, It just felt like... More

Clean spacious room (room 3), warm welcome. The room has a separate bathroom which was a shame as it could so easily be turned into an en-suite as it is separated only by a wall where a cupboard is positioned and a radiator on the other side in the bathroom. The breakfasts were freshly cooked, a little sparse but acceptable.... More

Stayed for one night,clean and comfortable own bathroom but separate from bedroom. Breakfast was nice. Overall nicely situated but not noisy at night. Our visit was in December so walking around the cobbled streets in the evening was beautiful.
