My wife and I stayed for two nights in the Canterbury room. It was just what we wanted - full of character and charm. The uneven floor and creaky boards add to the charm . The staff were incredibly helpful and polite. Anna and another young lady served us breakfast happily and efficiently. The owner Sandie, is very helpful and...

Attending a wedding in Canterbury, we stayed here as a large group. We were in the Canterbury Room; fabulous decor, including period four-poster bed, yet with enough mod cons to make it a really pleasant stay. The next morning we all had breakfast, and both the food and service were excellent. If you ever need to stop in Canterbury then...

As visitors to Canterbury for one night we wanted somewhere comfortable, well-managed, attractively presented, with wifi, parking and breakfast; great value for money, conveniently central and reflective of the history of one of England's most interesting and ancient cities. Yup, we totally nailed it choosing House of Agnes. For just over £100 we really enjoyed our stay in one of...

We stayed here for a weekend break whilst returning our son to Kent Uni. Perfectly placed, just a stroll from the main city area but on the right side to access the Uni. Everything was faultless from the comfortable, cosy stable room to the plentiful, fresh breakfast. We loved the little library and games area and although we didn't have...

Privately owned and personal service in a period building. Best location with parking included. Suites are decent and stable rooms opening to the garden quite fine. Honesty bar is trendies with great local beers and fair selection of wines, and some spirits. Breakfast is great quality and just a pity that it finishes much earlier than other places nearby. That...

A really lovely place made special by Sandy and her staff, you really feel cosy as soon as you step through the door, we stayed in the stable block rooms which were very inviting, everything you need for a nice break away, tea and coffee making facilities in room. The breakfast was amazing. Next time we visit we will try...

Stayed at the House of Agnes with other relatives in order to celebrate a birthday. Three couples in total and we all had a good stay. this is a great place to relax and close to the centre of Canterbury. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good also. Quintessentially Dickensian English throughout.

We stayed at this beautiful hotel for our wedding anniversary just before Christmas, the staff were amazing, nothing was too much trouble. They very kindly left a beautiful card and some chocolates in our room for us which was a lovely surprise. The rooms were spacious clean and had everything you would need, tea/coffee, biscuits, toiletries and a hairdryer. Breakfast...
