Certificate of Excellence


Certificate of Excellence
The original 15th-century character has been respected and enhanced in this beautiful accommodation. Choose between themed rooms in the main house or modern rooms in the Stable Annexe, each with an abundance of thoughtful extras. Guests enjoy the 24-hr honesty bar, cosy lounges and bright, airy conservatory. Delightfully helpful service, free parking, free Wi-Fi & large, sunny heritage garden add to the appeal of this historically significant property which is a short stroll from shops, restaurants, bars, the marvelous Marlowe Theatre, bus and railway stations. Equally the City's historical sites and river Stour are steps away. Kent & Christchurch Universities and the famous Kent Cricket ground are all within easy proximity.

Booked following a cancellation by another hotel nearby. Weren't we lucky! At the House of Agnes, we found great attention to detail, with an accent on quality, and wanted for nothing. From large good quality towels to good breakfasts, with too many items to list in between.

On arrival you could tell the HOA was a good choice to stay for the weekend in Canterbury. A lovely friendly welcome on arrival by Michelle and Anna. We booked to stay two nights in the Venice Room - fantastic, quirky but homely at the same time. Loved the fact we had French

We booked the House of Agnes as we were going to the Marlowe Theatre to see Warhorse. The location was superb as it was only 5 minutes walking from the theatre. We chose the Venice room which was extremely comfortable and uniquely had an open plan bathroom! Although the wc was

The House of Agnes was our first stop on our road trip through southern England. We had never been to Canterbury before but thanks to the very nice staff at the B&B we got to know local tips like the Old Shed and the Café des Amis. The staff are friendly and always ready to

One more question about the cottage room: is it air-conditoned? Thanks!
The Cottage is not air conditioned.... British B&B's rarely are! You might like to check the link on my website called DISCOVER MORE ABOUT US On that link there is a PDF that shows you which rooms have tubs, where the room is located, whether they have fans or A/C. All our rooms have either fans or a/c dependent on the location.

Hello, The House of Agnes is ideally located in the City Center therefore some noise is inevitable. The trains are very unobtrusive (they're electric) but if you are a light sleeper then it's possible that you may be bothered by the seagulls, pigeons and various city noises. The Cottage room is garden facing and generally quiet but it depends on what we are comparing it to. I find that 'quietness' is relative to ones own home environment. I'm sorry I cant be more specific but I hope you will be encouraged by the fact that less that one in 2,000 of our guests ever mention a problem with noise. Kind regards, Sandie
