Wonderfully comfortable stay

Staying alone at the Kings head inn for two nights I felt incredibly safe and welcome.

The room was very clean and beautifully furnished, with lovely original features. Toiletries and tea and coffee facilities were great and free (and very good) wifi was an added bonus.

There was an excellent choice for breakfast in the morning which was of a high quality.

The inn is in a good location approximately 10 minutes walk from Canterbury centre.

Overall great value for money, thank you.

Great little B&B

Me and my husband really enjoyed our stay.

The room was great and the first thing I noticed was how perfectly clean it was. There was everything you needed there for your stay and a very comfy bed. The breakfast was absolutely lovely, we were pleasantly stuffed. Also the staff were friendly and helpful too. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you x
