“A charming spot, ideally placed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

The City Of Canterbury Bed And Breakfast is a charming spot ideally placed for Canterbury city Centre with a view thru the trees of the famous cathedral from the lounge. The hosts are warm and welcoming and provide an excellent breakfast. The lounge itself is large and spacious but tastefully and comfortably furnished with access to a widescreen TV. Our bedroom was at the back of the house. It was clean and tidy with an adjoining loungr overlooking the garden, and en suite bathroom. A small TV and teamaking facilities is provided as you would expect. Wi-fi is available and ads a garnish to a practically perfect visit. Sorry I've accidentally given it a fitness centre with an excellent ratin. It doesn't have one so ignore that bit.

We had a lovely stay with a very clean room with very good facilities. A superb view of the Cathedral from our room. Well maintained garden and a large lounge area perfect to realax in with a good book. Great hosts and a great breakfast, highly recommended.

Very nice B&B for visiting the University by prospective students and parents. Close to train station and right across the street from the Univ of Kent - Canterbury campus. My daughter stayed there during her visit to the University when considering her grad school options. She thought it was reasonably priced and well maintained. She would recommend it to others.

We were supposed to stay in a hotel in the centre of Canterbury but on arrival they were double booked. As it was a very busy weekend in Canterbury we were lucky to find this place had one room left. What a gem it turned out yo be. It was a 20 minute walk from the City centre, but on a very good bus route. Lovely friendly hosts, great breakfast and very very clean. Slept like babies. Wonderful substitute.

Situated just outside the busy part of the city, it is perfectly situated. Within easy walk of the centre (about 15 minutes walk), yet far enough out to be peaceful and relaxing. We had a really good night's sleep and could not hear any noise from the road outside. Breakfast was delicious, everything fresh and cooked to perfection. This is the nicest bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in! Thoroughly recommended.

My husband and I, together with our daughter and her husband spent only one night at the City of Canterbury B and B and our only regret was couldn't stay longer. It is ideally situated, just up the hill from the city centre and boasts beautiful views of the Cathedral. We were warmly welcomed by the owners and were very impressed with the facilities on offer. Our rooms were spotless, comfortable and tastefully decorated and we thoroughly enjoyed our freshly prepared and very substantial and tasty breakfast the following morning. Well worth a visit and excellent value for money!
