A lovely friendly comfortable B&B. If you want a luxurious posh hotel you won't find it at Clare Ellen but if you want home from home comfort that's what you'll get. We booked a family room but were given a family room with bunk beds plus a single room for my 15 year old son who is a giant so would never have fitted in one of the bunk beds! The price was extremely reasonable & the breakfast was lovely. The beds were comfortable & I can imagine that having a fridge in the room is very handy for people staying for longer periods. The shower was really powerful.
Far enough out to be quite quiet but a nice walk into the centre. (about 15 minutes)
I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in this clean and friendly guest house for two nights during Easter holiday, really impressed with this charming place in a quite location not far from train station. We were greeted by the owner when arrived, whom showed us around the guest house, gave us a copy of the Canterbury map and explained how to get to some of the historical places, best places to eat. Our room was clean, newly decorated with hair dryer, toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities, fridge and TV. The bed was comfortable. All staff was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was healthy with fat trimmed off from bacons, all cooked to perfection and at right portion. The guest house has couple of parking spaces at the back which was off the road and safe. 10-15 mins walk to high street. Would recommend to anyone.

Stayed 3 nights at Clare Ellen and found the B&B to be very good. Excellent off street parking at the rear of the property - a bonus when Canterbury is full of double yellow lines everywhere! The Owner was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and restaurants, albeit we had chosen the latter from TA reviews and were not disappointed. The room was very clean and tidy with nice furniture, albeit the bed was a touch on the hard side for our liking - albeit there is nothing like ones own bed!. Excellent choice of cooked breakfasts - from full English, through the variations such as a bacon sandwich etc, and the Owner was very accommodating to special requests regarding 'modifications' to the choice. Although there were cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurt also available it would have been nice to have a few Danish pastries and/or croissants available just to give a bit more variety especially on a longer stay. But all-in-all a great place to stay, quiet and only 10 mins walk to the city.

Room Tip: Some (single) rooms may have an external bathroom - albeit still private usage.

Nice place, shame about the ultra early 10am check out time - WAY too early for a Sunday morning. Dinner and drinks on Saturday night meant that we were tired all day Sunday. Breakfast was 8-9 also a bit early for a weekend. Other than that very nice and very friendly staff.

I came to settle my daughter into Kent University and stayed at the Clare Ellen Guest House for six days, after which I went to London and then came back for one night. I could not have felt more welcome. The proprietor was genuinely concerned for my comfort and even allowed me to leave some luggage when I went to London at no extra cost. This establishment is run professionally with just the right amount of homeliness to make even the most wary traveler feel safe.
