Spent last weekend at this establishment and were very happy. The owners were very pleasant and polite, rooms very clean and high standard, the breakfast was excellent and a good choice, we have no problem in recommending this little gem.

Warm welcome, good room, comfortable bed, great breakfast and free parking. 15 minutes walk along river to centre of town. Our bedroom (#3) had good views - only downside was the noise from the busy road which continued into the night.

A very pleasant and friendly atmosphere. Comfy beds and good breakfasts. Suited all our needs. Would definitely stay there again. The only drawback we found the parking a little difficult. Apart from that we had a very enjoyable time. The owners were very friendly and helpful when we needed directions to places of interest.

Harriet House is a lovely B&B perfectly situated for a stay in Canterbury. Very welcoming, clean, tidy, spacious - really nice. The breakfast was excellent. Would stay again and recommend friends and family to do the same.

As we used the double we didn't have to share. A fan was very welcome as it was hot upstairs. Everything was spotless. The breakfast was fresh and... More

We had a very comfortable overnight stay at Harriet House. Owners were very welcoming, offered help in finding our way around. The room was excellent and breakfast was good. B&B close to the city centre. would definitely recommend and will stay here again if we visit Canterbury again.

Everything very good indeed; very friendly & helpful owner Convenient position just 15 mins walk away from centre. Breakfast just what I wanted - the scrambled egg & smoked salmon looked wonderful, but I resisted the temptation!
