We had a very enjoyable stay at The Coach House visiting our daughter who is at uni in Canterbury. The accommodation is a charming Georgian house. We stayed in room 6 which is on the ground floor at the front of the property. The room was spacious and comfortable. I loved

The room was characterful and adequate. Lovely breakfasts. As it is so central got some street noise but didn’t put us off. Was in a great location for exploring Canterbury and for the bus station to explore further afield.

A nice quaint old house in central Canterbury. Our room was fine, breakfasts delicious, service friendly. The only drawback was that our room was at the front of the building and got all the street noise (late night revelers and early morning garbage trucks). If these don’t

Our prices are the same or even less than other B&B's in the area for this season, also the week that you stayed with us was graduation week so the prices are higher naturally during this week. Graduation week is the busiest week of the year for Canterbury so naturally there will be some celebrations going on with extra noise. The house is a unique Georgian listed building so certain interior changes are impossible but this only adds to its charm!

Over priced. Not the friendliest service I've had. Narrow winding stairs, unsuitable for my mum. This was not advertised. Windows don't stay open. Towels don't match. Web page was misleading when comparing photos. I felt like I was intruding in a family home.

From our point of view we did everything possible to meet your needs from carrying things up to your room to ordering taxis when you had awoken late. we have a house full of other guests who also need help so it must be understood that waiting a couple of minutes is necessary when we are dealing with other requests. Banging on doors and ringing the doorbell we found to be very inappropriate when you have the code for the front door and we have other guests. Also we had complaints of noisy arguments from your room. Yes we are a family run business and proud of it. It does not affect our service as you can see from the other wonderful reviews we have had. The pictures of our property are very clear on the websites and on the website through which you booked it states very clearly the position of your room, these need to be taken into account before booking.

Very nice house, friendly owners, lovely room, good breakfast. So Central. Only drawback struggled with all the stairs to room 3. Great to park up and leave car for a couple of days. Only 20 minutes away from Whitstable Harbour which is a lovely place to visit.

There is parking right outside the front door or a car park less than 100 yards along the road. Also further car parking within the shopping mall about 50 yards away but this is a bit pricey. Hope that helps.

"Just from the ground floor, but you have lots and heavy luggages I would avoid top floor ones too."
"A bit noisy in the front rooms but that is Canterbury for you."
"Single room no. 5 at the back of the house is ensuite. Very quiet."
"Room 3 overlooked the street but there was little noise. Adjacent bathroom which is private."
"most rooms are not en suite so best to check if this is important. However some bathrooms have private floors so they are not communal."
US$72 - US$117 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
