This was a great base for exploring Canterbury. All of the rave reviews pretty much cover how wonderful this B&B is so I will try not to duplicate too much. I stayed in the room with two twin beds and a private bathroom with shower. The room and the bathroom were very clean which is obviously important. The bathroom would probably be tiny for some people but I live in Japan so it wasn't too small. It was not anything overly fancy but I was looking for a great location in a historical building so I got exactly what I was searching for.
I was about 5 or 10 minutes late for the end of breakfast and didn't expect to eat anything but the owner had waited for me to come down and my place was set in the dining room. I felt bad so I sat down and ate a little bit and drank my juice even though I didn't want to have breakfast that morning. He was very kind and offered to cook me something but I declined. Both owners were very friendly and helpful in the short time that I spoke with them.
The pub across from the Tudor House was great for a late-night pint. Also, the Canterbury Tales pub just down the street and over the bridge was a good place for an afternoon and late-night drink. The Parrot Pub had great atmosphere and wasn't too far away. I think that was one of the oldest pubs there. And then The Dolphin Pub was right near that one and was also decent. The Tudor House is very central for a fun pub crawl if you feel the need. :)
