We have spent a few days at Debbie's B&B and would definitely recommend it. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the breakfasts with fresh fruit and cereals and of course the cooked breakfast were excellent. The location is really good, just a 10 min walk into Canterbury and the parking around the back is very safe. Although it's...

Stayed here for 1 night recently, and found it to be perfectly suitable. It was close to Canterbury town, the room was lovely, breakfast good, hosts welcoming and friendly- the only downside was the cleanliness of the bathroom. There was a suspicious hair on the sink, and rust dripping off the shower hose causing an orange pool in the shower....

Thank you for taking the time to review our bed and breakfast. I am so very sorry regarding the shower hose I assure you it was perfect when I cleaned the room. We had tried a new strong chemical cleaner for the first time and possibly it was down to this. We have now addressed this with a new shower...

I've been travelling to Canterbury for the past 3 years and have always stayed at the Carena. Debbie and Baz are very friendly and welcoming hosts and the rooms are always immaculate. They also offer an excellent breakfast choice. The B&B is not far from the city walls with the Cathedral and major sights only a 20 minute walk away....

Debbie's B&B was one of the highlights of our recent vacation in England. Debbie was a big part of it - very friendly and funny, and most accommodating. The rooms were bright and clean. Breakfast was delicious. Short walk to the city centre passing through parkland. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for one night as we had tickets for a comedy show at the Marlowe, room was clean, the host Debbie couldn't be more helpful, distance to the City wasn't as far as I thought, easy to park in the side street, would definitely recommend.

My husband and I stayed at this lovely B&B for one night as part of a weekend trip. The room was clean and comfortable, it was just a 15 minute or so walk into the centre of Canterbury and we received a really warm welcome on arrival. The breakfast the next morning was absolutely delicious, with everything cooked to perfection....

I booked this B&B, originally back in November for a single night as I was attending a local sewing course. When the course was cancelled at short notice I phoned Carena House and spoke to Debbie who said it was no problem to cancel the booking. She did not charge a cancellation fee and said to let her know when...
