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...

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.

My friend & I decided to visit Canterbury and take in all of the sites so had to stay somewhere overnight...we found this lovely B&B. The welcome was really friendly, and breakfast fantastic (my friend pleased to find they had glutton free bread) Also brought us a fan as it was extremely hot that night. Throughly recommended !!!
