Excellent accommodation, easy process to check in. Was worried my bathroom was shared but it was private (just on another room). Free parking very useful, quite close to city centre and university campus. Great bed - fantastic shower- and friendly host!
Nice place - very old fashioned in decor, but clean and welcoming. Almost guest house rather than B&B. Breakfast is available but as a continental room delivery (I didn’t take up the offer as I don’t eat breakfast) The room was clean, large and had everything I needed - except the toilet is just outside the room. That’s ok, as no one else was using it but it was so cold in there! The shower is in the room though and it’s powerful with plenty of water. I’m not that short, but all the mirrors in the room were a bit high up, so bring a mirror if your make up is important! Great location for the city centre and a short walk to the main shopping areas. I was here for work but enjoyed the walk into town for dinner. There was a great welcome and help with my luggage. Like many of these guest houses it’s stair cases to the rooms so no good if you have mobility issues. The room was comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and I slept very well. There were 2 radiators in my room but I didn’t turn them on. I prefer to put a blanket over the bed (there was one in the cupboard). There was some early road noise but I was awake anyway so it didn’t bother me but worth knowing. I didn’t bring a car but it seems there are 3 spaces outside. I’m sure you would need to book them. I also met the house cat on my last morning! 10/10 based on what I paid, my expectations and what I needed…
10/10 for location and free parking. The property would improve greatly with an update to the decor. Our bedroom was clean and spacious, had the bonus of a small settee. The furniture was old but functional. The shower was not powerful, but adequate & took a few minutes for the hot water to arrive. The extractor fan above the shower was not clean & would be better if replaced with a more powerful one as we had constant condensation on the sash windows. The levers on both windows had been painted over so we could not open them to get any fresh air. There is no reception desk, only a mobile number displayed on the wall downstairs for emergencies. We rang the door bell to hopefully speak to a member of staff, but no one appeared to be on the premises, only the very friendly household cat. Our WC was separate from our room, which we knew of in advance, but it was not cleaned during our stay (cobwebs behind the door & window in need of repair). No noise problem, but will not be returning.…
A family run b&b. Very central location with parking available outside the front door, so perfect for walking around town but inevitably a bit of noise. Similarly, a very old house which gives it character but means that some amenities are not the same as in a modern property - toilet just outside our room etc. We had the continental breakfast. It was delivered to our room and was very nice, especially the hot croissants. Really nice, helpful couple run it. Overall one needs to decide between location and character and friendliness v old house with basic amenities.
This is an old fashioned B&B which is extremely central and has great parking facilities ( we couldn’t get any closer to the front door) . We had an shower in our room but toilet was outside our room(1) . Slight noisy road in the morning but nothing to worry us . Very helpful and friendly staff
Disappointing stay, Booking was made months in advance off our stay as a birthday present. Although the location is perfect, 5 min walk into town centre, the B&B is very dated. Our room was located on the ground floor. On arrival there was dirty bedding on the top of the wardrobe, the soap dispenser in the bathroom empty, we were told the shower in our room was playing up, and that it might turn off but after a few minutes it would start again… Anyway we unpacked and went to have a look around Canterbury. Whilst walking around the owner called and asked if he could go into the room and work on the shower, I said this was OK but couldn’t understand why he was doing this after we arrived rather than before. Got back to the B&B and noticed the dirty washing had been removed and the soap dispenser filled…again why was this not done before we arrived. Breakfast is offered as a continental option in room only due to Covid for £6 each. Attempted a shower but the water didn’t drain away and it started leaking from the bottom of the shower tray. Husband ended up having a stripped wash. We let the owner know about the shower and again while we were out they went into the room to sort it. We decided to get up and out in the morning and find somewhere to get a cooked breakfast. Loads of cafes and tea rooms in the town. Got back to the room lunchtime and our cups were still dirty from our morning cuppa!! The plan was to have chilled hour before going back out but their two young boys were screaming and running up and down the hall. With the weather against us we decided to head home early. We only stayed one night but paid for the two. All in all the owners were pleasant enough but really lacked attention to detail. I love kids but didn’t enjoy the screaming and running about. It may be an old house but the B&B needs a good overhaul. I wouldn’t return or recommend.…
We have stayed in numerous bed and breakfasts and have never experienced such poor standards. The room smelt stale, was not clean, the toilet was extremely unclean, the shower smelt and the bed was as hard as rock. There was someone staying in the room next door , who left their room open all night, which was not pleasant when getting up to go to the toilet and they were noisy on returning to their room. The property was dated and we felt wasn’t fit to be open at this time.
Wow! What a beautiful and friendly welcome. Let me be clear - if you want straight shallow stairs and corridors, magnolia rooms and complete silence, then find a bland plastic offering at a chain hotel (you know the ones I mean!). If you want a personal, beautiful, soulful stay then you can’t go wrong in choosing the quirky and lovely Coach House. It’s an old Georgian building less than 5 minutes walk from the Cathedral. FOR COMPLAINERS - LOOK AT THE PHOTOS before you book! Came to research for writing, and was not disappointed. Would definitely stay again and recommend!!
The is B&B but covid has forced the breakfast to be continental and served in your room. This is an old building that creeks and needs a little attention, which is happening with scaffolding every where. It needs a bit of TLC and as for a carpet in the bathroom it's just not good but it was comfortable and importantly, a great location to the city centre. A bit noisy on the road thou.
Yes its in a very good position only a few steps for the shops and probably 400 steps to the Cathedral. Parking in front of the Hotel was ideal and free. Hotel furniture a little on the old side, bed large and comfortable, stayed two nights but had to make our bed for the second night?. did not have breakfast.
