First of all, the customer service was probably the best I've ever seen in any establishment. We arrived at 11am to ask if we could leave our luggage (check-ins are normally from 2pm) and come back later when the room is ready. The person at the reception was very friendly and told us that we might be able to get... More

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. My mum and I were shown to our family room, my mum's case was taken for her which was a lovely touch. Towels were on the bed with a chocolate on top, the presentation was lovely and the room was clean and tidy. Although it is on the main... More

We stayed at lovely Canterbury. We would recommend this accommodation for the following reasons: very clean, good wi fi, good breakfast ( they cook a hot brekkie to order ), room was well appointed, free parking right out the front and the 2 owners were super helpful ( although we have vowed, in future, not to ask for owner recommendations...

This place is great! We hired a car and chose this place because it has parking. You can really tell the owners really care about the guesthouse as their business. The rooms were great, and a short 10 minute walk into town. Breakfast was great, the rooms were just what we needed too, and included a TV with freeview. Our... More

Visited the City of Canterbury B&B for 3 nights recently with a friend and was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of the rooms and good, traditional style service in a beautifully presented guest house only 10 minute's walk from the city centre. I'd certainly recommend the City of Canterbury to anyone.

Staff couldn't have been friendlier. Very welcoming and great for local attraction advise. Location is walking distance to centre city and a short drive away from the beach. Room we had was quiet and private and worked perfectly for us with a small child. Would recommend if you prefer staying in a B&B vs a hotel.

Thank Melanie H
