We stayed at House of Agnes for one Friday night in June. Drove down from Surrey and found the place no problem, parking area is great and lovely first impression as it is round the back near the garden.
We chose the Venice room which I would definitely recommend, has an open plan jacuzzi bath which was great and double doors which down some steps into the garden area. Room was very comfortable and nicely decorated and the location is great, 5 minutes into downtown Canterbury.
There is a nice honesty bar where we sampled some local cider in the evening and other nice touches were free wifi and ice bucket and ice. Breakfast the next morning was also very good.
Some why not 5 stars - I am not sure I would classify House of Agnes as a B&B - it has rooms in the main house and also some outside rooms in a separate build area - as a result there are a lot of guests and you lose that B&B feel - it was more like a small hotel and although staff were friendly I don't think any of them knew our names which is different to other boutique B&B's we have stayed in.
Overall though well recommended but I think is maybe the victim of it's success on Tripadvisor!
Canterbury was great - recommend the Cathedral and park by the citygate.
