I was looking for somewhere to stay I would feel safe and comfortable as I was staying on my own. This b and b was wonderful. The owner was very warm and helpful.

Would certainly recommend this guest house and would stay again. Comfortable bed, quiet room, dressing gowns provided and lots of nice personal touches. I had the smoked haddock for breakfast which was delicious.

Arrived in the morning, made extremely welcome. House and rooms exceptionally decorated, very clean with everything you could wish for in the room. I would recommend the Magnolia house to anyone who want to stay in Canterbury.

The attention to detail that Isobelle creates is nothing short of amazing. Clearly a love of providing a showcase of her tastes and styles, which in a privately owned B&B makes a nice change from chain properties. Fantastic quality ingredients at breakfast and piping hot. Very comfy bed in thre garden room - personal taste aside, an all round good...

My partner and myself stayed for a weekend break while visiting family and found this guest house totally exceeded our expectations. The host even taxi'd us to our event on our first evening there! I have to mention the breakfast...being vegetarian its great to see a full English veggie breakfast on the menu and the eggs are fresh daily from...

My two friends and I stayed here for two nights (Friday and Saturday). On arrival we were offered a drink and were shown to our rooms (one single and one twin). Everything was very clean. The shower/bath was excellent but the shampoo, shower gel and conditioner were all in tall, narrow glass bottles which balanced precariously over the bath. My...

Hostess was very professional and a bit aloof. This was more of a guesthouse than a bed and breakfast and so if you are looking for that type of place -- it is fine. We prefer to stay in bed and breakfasts where we can meet other guests and get tips on things to see and do and share stories....

Excellent location near to centre of Canterbury. Small but comfortable room with lots of nice touches, minifridge with complimentary wine, water & beer. Nice decor if a bit tired. A pity nobody had cleaned the toilet and hand basin since the last guests. Pleasant garden for use by guests. Breakfast good but served in silence, owner has a rather aloof...

Dunstans, Owner at Magnolia House, responded to this review

I am sorry that there was the awkward situation on your departure, when you had forgotten to bring your Daily Mail vouchers with you in order to claim the substantial discount for the room, but thank you for putting them in the post, even though they were incomplete. I am also really sorry that everyone, including you, arrived very early...

I stayed here with my daughter when she visited the University. The owners had clearly thought about what guests might want - everything from a small fridge in the room to a clothes brush. For breakfast, there was a good choice of delicious fresh food. Magnolia House is easy to find, approaching Canterbury from London. There is off-street parking, and...
