Ver good overall, friendly and an extremely good breakfast. Bereakfast times are a little early for my wife. Check in/out times are a little early/late. Easy to find, good parking and only a short walk into the city.

We had a very nice short stay at Harriet House. The breakfast was delicious, especially the English one. The center and cathedral are at only 10 minutes by walk. The room was well decorated and very clean.

very friendly with an excellent breakfast, a lot of thought has gone into making this a great B & B. spotlessly clean and well-decorated. a little way out of the town centre but still walkable and quiet at night.

We came from Belgium for a stay of two nights. Our aim was to breath another air than our traditional daily life. We enjoyed the simplicity, the cute, room 6, the breakfast and above all, the location. Thank you to our hosts who were kind and helpful.

Perfect location, Just a short walk along the river to the downtown area. Rooms were nice and the breakfast was excellent. Best part there was parking in the back of the building. I can't say more than everyone else has already said but for one thing. The owner and his family were so gracious. My wife had a major problem...

We have stayed here on a number of occasions. It is an excellent base for exploring Canterbury and the surrounding towns. Just a 10 - 15 minute stroll along the river bank to the city centre . The room was spotlessly clean (again) and the delicious cooked breakfast set us for the day. We have no hesitation in recommending Harriet...

Great stay in warm and well-located B&B, would recommend to any sort of traveller! The hosts were friendly and informative and the breakfasts were timely and well received. The location is a shortish walk to the town centre and also close to Kent University.

Good location, nice and clean and tidy, good breakfast and friendly guys on reception and breakfast. Room was quiet, clean and comfortable and represented good value for money. Only downside was that there was no lounge seating area for guests.
