We had a fantastic 3 night stay with Michelle and Joe. We had two well equipped rooms. Both ensuite and with enough room for two peple. The original English Breakfast is very good, including fresh fruits and a selection of cereals every day. The hosts were a great help for planning our day-trips and finding good dining locations.

I must impress upon visitors to Canterbury how wonderful it is to stay so close to the city but enjoy the amenities with a host who covers all the bases. A welcome smile, a lovely garden , off street parking and well cooked breakfast to suit an individual's requirements. Why stay in some chain hotel when such establishments exist. So...

We've just spent 3 nights at the Wincheap Guesthouse and I highly recommend it. Joe and Michelle are welcoming and friendly, and gave us useful tips (especially regarding payment for the Dartford Crossing!). You won't get a better welcome, I'm sure. Our first floor room was spacious (family room, although just 2 of us) on the first floor at the...

I just spent one night in Wincheap Guest House but if I had the chance I would stay more days. Booking the room was as easy as just sending an email. No paperwork, no prepaid, no credit cards... They had a room perfect for 3 people, clean, comfortable, quite, well decorated... I didn´t expect that, really impressed. The guest house...

This is a Victorian town house on several floors Always very clean, used 4 of the 6 rooms available now as our 4th visit. Stairs quite steep if you have heavy bags (we havnt!) Rooms quiet despite main road, Very friendly helpful staff, good price, breakfast awesome. Small special touches around like toothpicks on the table, lollipops by the door!....

Fühlte mich von Anfang an geborgen und willkommen!!! Das Zimmer ist sauber, groß genug mit gemütlicher Ausstattung und sehr ruhig. Joes Frühstück ist ein vielfältiges Gedicht:mindestens 8 Sorten von frisch geschnittenenem Obst, Trockenfrüchte, Nüsse, verschiedenste Müslis, full English breakfast sowieso und leckere Cookies auf dem Zimmer, selbstgemachte (und auch abgepackte) Marmeladen ......bis zum Abend war ich gut versorgt. Prima Ideen...
