Arrived in Canterbury for one night stay by car from Stansetd airport and was very easy to find with Tomtom. We had a twin and a double room for family with interconnecting door with two independent bathrooms. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Ideally located from city centre (10 minutes) and very close to the University of Kent, which we had to visit. Breakfast was great with friendly hosts David and Sandra. Best value for money for a family, we will definetly stay there again if we go to Canterbury.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floor seem to be quieter and if you are a family remember to ask for the family r...

Stayed in Canterbury for two nights whilst attending a conference in May. David and Sandra excellent hosts. Room was very nice, at front of house and road outside but noise was not a problem. Room very nice, good linen and accessories. Great breakfast. All within walking distance of the city. I will stay again if in Canterbury and would recommend to friends.

The owners really try hard to please, but the room I got was small and uncomfortable, an uncontrolled alarm went on at 6 AM and nobody stopped it and (English) breakfast was really bad as everything, from bacon to baked beans, was probably the cheapest choice in the supermarket. Not a good deal.

Thank you for your feedback. We’re sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay with us.

We're also sorry about the problem with the alarm clock going off in the room next door. As soon as you informed us, the alarm clock was stopped. There was a problem with it, which we weren't aware of at the time, and the alarm clock has now been replaced.

The room you got was the room that you had booked online, a single room with en-suite bathroom. The bedroom is 8.75 sq mtrs and the bathroom is 4.8 sq mtrs, which gives a combined area of 13.55 sq mtrs. We've never had any complaints about its size and/or facilities provided, which are what you would expect in a 3-star guest house.

As for breakfast we pride ourselves in providing good quality food, which we cook to order. The ingredients we use are certainly not the cheapest and we have been using the same ingredients and suppliers since we took over St. Stephens. We have received a lot of compliments, both verbally and in previous guest reviews.

With the exception of the problem with the alarm clock, which you brought to our attention in the morning at breakfast, it would've been nice to have been given this feedback on check out, when asked if everything had been ok.

Stayed in a twin bedded room on the last night of our stay in Canterbury area, having had a nomadic 3 nights in total, staying in different hotels or guest houses this was the best. Had a hearty cooked breakfast which was very nice. The hosts, David and Sandra are very pleasant. Accommodation very clean, big bathroom. Especially appreciated was the Information folder in the room, with usual places to visit, along with very useful information on Eateries, Taxi Services, Doctor's, Pharmacies, Hairdressers etc.
St Stephen's Guest House is ideally situated for a walk into the city, as got car park so can leave car safely parked up and have a healthy 15-20 min walk into the city. Wish we'd stayed here for at least another night. Thoroughly recommended.

I don´t normally write reviews but having just returned from a five fantastic days at David and Sandra´s B&B in Canterbury I am making and exception. We stayed in a room for three that was clean and pleasantly decorated with comfortable beds and a modern bathroom. The room was not huge, but big enough for two adults and a teenager. David and Sandra are friendly and helpful hosts. David waited up for our very late arrival on the first night and the next morning was up bright and cheerful to serve a delicious full English breakfast. Don´t miss breakfast! A lighter continental breakfast is also available for salad eaters! The location is perfect, within easy walking distance for Canterbury city centre and with easy access by car. The car park is a big plus. Overall I would thoroughly recommend St Stephen´s Guesthouse and would definitely return.

Room Tip: Don´t miss breakfast! The parking space in the corner is a tight squeeze to get out of.

I was here for two nights and it was amazing. Situated within walking distance of both the town and of the university so it was really ideal for me. My room was very comfortable, with a nice bed and a very clean, good sized bathroom. Not a huge room but that's not necessary. Both of the people were very friendly and helpful during my entire stay and the breakfast was great--made to order full English, with a continental buffet. Was travelling alone but had a very comfy double bed.

Came across this guesthouse via the Canterbury tourism website and was chuffed with my stay. Took my girlfriend for a night so we could have a look around the city and it was the ideal spot for a reasonably priced stay, within easy walking distance of the city centre, but with private parking as well.
The room was newly refurbished and extremely clean and comfortable, with a big bathroom.
David and Sandra who run the business were both exceptionally friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was fantastic.
