Just a one night stay at this very central guest house in Canterbury. The owners were friendly and most helpful in giving me directions for the places I needed to visit. The room was not the largest I have been in but it was adequate for the purpose - a comfortable bed, a clean bathroom and a very good breakfast....

We stayed here by mistake, having intended to revisit Alexandra House two doors along, which had very high standards. We found the Alicante adequate, but the room was tiny, the bathroom extremely tired though functional, and the whole decor in desperate need of updating. All this would not matter if the guest house were given 2 stars. In fact they...

Even though our trip down to Kent was to go to Herne Bay (25 minute drive from Canterbury) for my Army reunion weekend, there was only one place we were going to stay. We love staying here, and fortunate again to have the 4 poster room. Terry and Jean fantastic hosts as ever, breakfast superb and as always our stay...

My employer put me up here for two nights, on the second of which I had to leave in the middle of the night for onward travel. The owner of the establishment helped my colleagues and I move our bags upstairs when we arrived, and made sure that we settled in OK. The service was friendly, and the breakfast was...

Stayed at the Guesthouse in a twin room with a colleague for a conference. The room was nice and clean, the breakfast (vegetarian) amazing and the hosts very friendly and helpful. The location is ideal: close to the town center and only few minutes from the train station yet tucked away from the busy nightlife. Would highly recommend!

Stayed in the room with the four poster bed and the very big bathroom. It certainly is a very big bathroom! Stayed on the 16th of June, 2012. I thought the room was very good for the price and certainly no quibble about the 4**** rating. The breakfast was lovely and Terry is a fine host. My wife and I...

First trip down to Canterbury in about a year, down for Jubilee weekend. First time with my new partner and as I had spoken of it so much to her, could only stay in one place. Since my last stay the guesthouse has received a makeover. I've just seen a review put on by IAXPYC (on the right hand side...

Sad conditions for the price. Could have stayed at the Cathedral Lodge (budget rooms) for £10 less, with breakfast on white table cloths. But left booking too late, and Jubilee weekend, so ended up in this 4**** rated accommodation? Are they serious? Delapidated room. A very nice man, however. And basic breakfast. But the place needs a serious makeover.

We had best room in the house with the four poster bed and the big bathroom. It was nice and quiet, spotless, good internet and other bits and bobs to make the stay comfortable. The chap is very helpful and is an excellent host, and they also knock up a decent english breakfast. It is also only 5 minutes walk...

Lovely people who run this B&B. You can ask them everything, they called us a taxi, they were very flexible concerning picking up our luggage. They helped us a lot with our questions. Both owners are very friendly and like to have a chat with their guests. It's our second time that we stayed in Allicante and each time we...
