Booking was rather formal with strict Ts and Cs (checkout by 10am is pretty early, isn't it?), but everything was great. We were in a lovely Tudor room in a lovely Tudor house with an ensuite shower somehow squeezed into the room. We're not fans of carpeted toilets either, but overall it was very comfortable. The host was friendly and unobtrusive, and very attentive over the lovely breakfast. The location is great - just off the high street in the middle of the action (though we didn't stay out late at night with all the barely-clad students roaming the streets!). Definitely recommend the B&B though.

I stayed at Tudor House in July with my husband for my graduation at the Cathedral. It's position is extremely convenient, but also quiet. The bed was comfortable - very important - and breakfast beautifully prepared. The owners are friendly and accommodating, without being intrusive and the price is incredibly reasonable. If you don't mind the historic, sloping floors and slightly "rustic" feel about the place, then it is absolutely for you. It does not have the clean-cut perfection of a large chain hotel, but is well worth staying in and good value for money.

Canterbury was the second stop of our recent 2-week vacation in England after several days in London. Tudor House was a great place to spend a night so we could enjoy Canterbury within easy walking distance of everything since it's inside the wall. We specifically looked for lodging that would be of historic interest, and were completely satisfied with our choice.

We traveled with my husband's mother and father who are elderly but in good health, so booked two rooms, theirs being a short flight of stairs up, and ours a floor up from theirs. Both rooms were quite comfortable with bathrooms inside. We all had a good night's sleep after enjoying a lovely dinner in the historic Weaver's House which is just around the corner. There is a pub just down the street as well, and an excellent bakery on the corner, just a few yards walk. The location of Tudor House couldn't be better.

The host was quite helpful in assisting us with parking, providing all the information we needed weeks ahead of our trip as well as upon our arrival. We had help unloading our luggage from the car as well as carrying it to our rooms. Because parking is not allowed on the street, we were directed to a nearby car park and provided a token for the night.

Breakfast was served in a lovely room with a large hearth, and is a traditional English breakfast or lighter variation on your request. Everything was delicious.

Our only complaint is that we wished we'd had more than one night at Tudor House to enjoy more of Canterbury and Kent.

I've stayed in many hotels and B&Bs in Canterbury over the past 3 years since my son went to uni there, and a last, we found the perfect place! I was persuaded by the glowing reviews I'd read and it did not disappoint. Warm, cosy, charming, we had a wonderful breakfast, and the owners took such good care of us! It was nice to meet the other residents, and linger over coffee chatting. Very relaxed. Will definitely return. We would not want to go anywhere else now.

When you're doing sightseeing in London and you need some rest you should visit this B&B in Canterbury. The owners give you a warm welcome and give you nice tips on what you should visit in the town. Also, the home cooked, breakfast is better then in most hotels.

Lovely bed and breakfast very convenient to visit Canterbury. It's true that the place is old but it is really neat and clean and doesn't feel old-fashion in a bad way!
We really loved it and found it very calm and relaxing although our room was facing the cathedral. I would not recommend it to people who have trouble climbing the stairs though.
The couple who owns the place is extremely helpful and nice.
