Dropped into this B&B without booking ahead an managed to secure a room. Was very well looked after in a large room with comfy bed and tastefully decorated. Breakfast in the morning was to order and was delicious - couldn't fit anymore in if I had too! Thanks so much for the stay - great value for money within walking...

We have stayed at this guest house several times over the last three years whilst our daughter was at the University. It has always been very clean and welcoming. Breakfast is always freshly cooked to how you like it, with good choice of cereal, yoghurt, fruit etc. Ample tea and toast. The host is very welcoming and we have had...

My boyfriend and I came to visit Canterbury and came across this fantastic place by chance - we received an incredibly warm welcome from the owner and his daughter, and the owner was fine about sorting us out a room with a double bed - the room had just been refurbished with a nice new bathroom . The hotel is...

Stayed for 1 night and found the hotel very clean, friendly and at a great location. As the B&B undergone recent refurbishment it is really well decorated with new soft carpet through out. Very good facilities and excellent choice of breakfast. Would definitely recommend to others.

A lovely friendly comfortable B&B. If you want a luxurious posh hotel you won't find it at Clare Ellen but if you want home from home comfort that's what you'll get. We booked a family room but were given a family room with bunk beds plus a single room for my 15 year old son who is a giant so...

We stayed in this clean and friendly guest house for two nights during Easter holiday, really impressed with this charming place in a quite location not far from train station. We were greeted by the owner when arrived, whom showed us around the guest house, gave us a copy of the Canterbury map and explained how to get to some...

Stayed 3 nights at Clare Ellen and found the B&B to be very good. Excellent off street parking at the rear of the property - a bonus when Canterbury is full of double yellow lines everywhere! The Owner was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and restaurants, albeit we had chosen the latter from TA reviews and were not...

Nice place, shame about the ultra early 10am check out time - WAY too early for a Sunday morning. Dinner and drinks on Saturday night meant that we were tired all day Sunday. Breakfast was 8-9 also a bit early for a weekend. Other than that very nice and very friendly staff.

I came to settle my daughter into Kent University and stayed at the Clare Ellen Guest House for six days, after which I went to London and then came back for one night. I could not have felt more welcome. The proprietor was genuinely concerned for my comfort and even allowed me to leave some luggage when I went to...
