A Canterbury tale
Very welcoming and helpful.
Room was a little "tired". Breakfast was adequate. Had a good nights sleep. Could have got a hotel for a little more money with more facilities. Convenient bed for 1 night but would not stay any longer.
We are glad that you found us to be friendly and welcoming.
We are a little confused about the comment about the room being ‘a little tired’ All our rooms are kept up to date and this room in particular has recently been redecorated, we would definitely not agree that the room was ‘a little tired’. We could also not understand how you concluded that cleanliness was only worth 4 out of 6 when we constantly receive excellent feedback on our many positive reviews from guests. We are proud of our breakfasts which offer a huge array of items for a small bed and breakfast and i recall opening that morning early for you by 15 minutes. We also happily arranged a late check in for you as you arrived later than our stated time. It is worth noting that you booked a single room and not a double which costs a little more. We can only conclude that you would have preferred to stay in a hotel and not someones house (my home). Our single rooms offer great value for money in Canterbury which is maybe why you chose to stay with us when booking.
I recently had to spend a few days on a business trip in Canterbury and for a change, travelled by train (from the north of England); this meant that I would need digs close to the area I was visiting and Harriet House came up trumps.
A warm welcome, with handy advice on what the area offered set me up for what turned out to be an extended stay.
My room was spotless with a very comfy bed, flat screen TV, the usual tea & coffee facilities and a small fridge stocked with soft drinks and chocolate. The en suite bathroom, a touch compact and bijou, was also spotlessly clean with superb shower and a vast array of hand soap and creams etc. Free WiFi is provided (with a code offered on arrival) throughout the building.
One of their crowning glories are the breakfasts offered - just about every taste is catered for including full English and Continental fayre, but also available are waffles and my favourite, smoked salmon with scrambled eggs.
It's a short, level walk into town where there are many eateries and just over the busy road there is a Sainsburys supermarket, a high street coffee shop which shall remain nameless and a sports centre if you are feeling that way out.
Canterbury West railway station is a 8 - 10 minute walk but there are plenty of taxis covering the area and there are also bus stops nearby. Hosts Terry and Chris work tirelessly to provide a warm and pleasant hostelry and I am looking forward to my next visit. Heartily recommended.
