“Great location, lovely house”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

This lovely house is located almost in the heart of Canterbury. The cathedral is just around the corner. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Our room was small but very adequate. Breakfast was quite good. Parking is available, but not nearby. We parked in a restricted lot across the street to check in and get directions to the car park.

Room Tip: There's no lift, so if you don't like stairs, call ahead. Wi-Fi works, but not too well beyo...

Fabulous B&B right in the heart of Canterbury - just a stone's throw from the High St yet no problems with noise. Everything is within close walking distance.

Lovely building, full of history and character - very fitting for Canterbury. Room and facilities comfortable and breakfast superb.

The two hosts were very welcoming and provided an excellent overall service. Very good value also - would highly recommend this as a brilliant base to explore Canterbury.

The Tudor House is a 500-year-old building on a quiet side street, but only about a block from the center of Canterbury. As one might expect in such a unique old building, the rooms are just a bit quirky, with no two exactly the same. But the inn is comfortable, and the hosts are among the most friendly we have met anywhere--helpful, congenial, and accommodating. The full English breakfast is served in an attractive dining room that reflects the age and history of the house. Tudor House is a 15-20 minute walk, or a short taxi ride, from either of the Canterbury rail stations. It would be hard to find a more convenient or friendly base from which to explore this beautiful old city.

The location of Tudor House is perfect-you are at the centre of everything yet tucked away.The hosts were so friendly and welcoming-nothing was too much trouble for them and breakfast is great!I had a fab time being so close to all the history and also 2 mins walk from the art course I was studying-Perfect!As a single traveller,the price was very competitive indeed and the history of the house adds a different dimension to your stay-wonderful.

My family and I spent a couple of weeks travelling around England. The two nights we spent at the Tudor House were my favourite of the trip. This is a large part because of the owners. Taking a 16th century building and transforming it into a comfortable and welcoming retreat is no small feat. But this couple managed it perfectly. Warm and welcoming, we were able to relax and enjoy all that this wonderful city has to offer. And the breakfast was delightful. I hope to visit again someday.

Room Tip: We had a water closet in our room and a full bath down the hall. I wasn't sure this would work...

My daughter and I stayed in this b&b for 3 days 2 nights. It is very easy to find our way from Canterbury West station, 9 min walk. Mamad (husband) was very welcoming. The b&b is very cosy. There is no stairs up as it is a very old house. We stayed on the 2nd floor, facing the street which we came in from. It is very quiet at night. The room is spacious, with 2 armchairs, 2 side tables, 1 drawer with tv in front of the bed, another table in front of the toilet for tea, coffee and a kettle. It also has a cupboard with a back of extra blanket which is tucked away next to the toilet. It has a fireplace which is not in used but is well-decorated. Cup(s), bar soap (s) and a 2 in 1 shampoo packet(s) is provided. As usual, I have the photos below for your reference :)

Room Tip: Rooms facing Best Lane is the best! It is very quiet if you are the sort that needs peace and quiet...

My wife and I stayed here in May 2013 for one night, and we don't think we've ever experienced such amazingly warm hospitality at a B&B. Mamad and Mazi (the owners) are incredibly dedicated and friendly. From the moment we arrived, we experienced superior service!

The rooms are a little quirky and "average" compared to a modern building, but keep in mind this is a Tudor house (meaning it's even older than most countries), so the windows are thin, the heating is a bit finicky, the floors uneven... To me this just adds charm to the place, and you should start to think about how amazing it is that this building is still here!

Our room had two single beds and a self-contained bathroom on the top floor but unfortunately overlooked the noisy Pizza Express next door. The location is excellent however as you're within minutes of the high street (shops), and surrounded by history at every turn.

Breakfast the following morning however was the highlight, with a huge English breakfast on offer done exactly how you like it - absolutely fantastic, and I'd recommend booking a stay for this alone!
