Just for balance, very minor point the TV was...

We stayed for two nights as a family, in two rooms. The front of the house dates back to 1550, but the rooms are at the back, which is a modern extension. The rooms are simply decorated and furnished with solid oak furniture. The breakfast has everything - fresh fruit salad, yogurt, choice of cereals, fresh fruit juice, toast with...

Everything was very clean and comfortable and well thought out with good attention to detail.The bedrooms (as the photos demonstrate) are plainly decorated in a contemporary and pleasing style. The rooms were warm, in...

This was a last minute booking on a Friday night and what a little gem this bed and breakfast was. Welcoming host, clean comfortable room and a delicious breakfast in the morning. Also a bonus of an excellent pub nearby for dinner. Really good location for visiting Canterbury, buses pass the door if you don't want to drive.
