"Stylish, comfortable stay in a beautiful place"
We only stayed one night, but having arrived very early, we were made to feel most welcome and able to leave our car in the car park while we walked the short distance to explore the delights of Canterbury. Our room, The Garden Room, was beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable and we had a restful night's sleep. Breakfast next morning was beautifully cooked and consisted of high quality local produce. A very enjoyable stay. Read less

Excellent location, only a 10 minutes walk to the old town.
We had a large room (the garden room) and overlooked the back garden. Very nice and friendly host, supported us with a lot of useful information. Read less

as mentioned above
Dislikes:
we would have preferred a bit more flexibility regarding the breakfast (changing the compilation of the fixed breakfast menues was obviously not possible).
The shower was not in the least powerful.

"Great B&B experience"
Booked the Artists Room, a well-decorated room with a lovely king-size bed, for a couple of nights.

The room is great but it overlooks the main road out of town to the university campus, so with the single glazing ear plugs are definitely needed to sleep at night! Read less
Likes:
The room was large and well looked after, the bathroom very clean with a massive shower cubicle, and the owners were very friendly.
Dislikes:
The pressure for the shower could have been a higher, and the English breakfast fuller, but these are just quibbles!

"Superb quality experience"
No dull check-in procedures here! No, siree. You're an expected guest at The Retro B&B or at least that's how we've experienced it. After a warm welcome we were guided straight to our room. Our boys (3 & 9) were in the sky with the London bus bunk bed. Both hosts are such lovely people, you'd just want to hug them. For the record, we didn't do that, that would've made our stay a tad awkward. Breakfast was great and plentifu.
We really enjoyed our stay here and will recommend this most lovely B& Read less
Likes:
The cleanliness of our room and bathroom was impeccable. The house feels all warm & fuzzy, a much appreciated cosy interior. Above all, I can't stretch enough how friendly & welcoming the hosts were.
Dislikes:
The road where the premise is situated is quite a busy one. It wasn't all that bad but did wake some of us up at night. Getting the temperature in the shower right was somewhat of a challenge.

Overall rating: 4.8 out of 5
 We only stayed one night, but having arrived very early, we were made to feel most welcome and able to leave our car in the car park while we walked the short distance to explore the delights of Canterbury. Our room, The Garden Room, was beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable and we had a restful night's sleep. Breakfast next morning was beautifully cooked and consisted of high quality local produce. A very enjoyable stay.
