"Reasonable"
The bed was very comfortable although was woken up at 3.30am by people coming in, very noisy for well over an hour if not longer. That's not the owners fault though. The breakfast was lovely.… Read more

Likes:
Very friendly staff and couldn't do enough for you.
Dislikes:
The noise at 3:30 was a real nuisance, perhaps the visitors should be told to be in at a reasonable time?

The building was first registered as an ale house in 1803 by Flints Brewers of Stour street,Canterbury, the City of Canterbury had 3 bars and a shop selling local produce. Originally the building had a thatched roof which was later replaced withKentpeg tiles. At the rear of the building, which was originally the kitchen, a large slab was discovered beneath which was a well, behind the building was originally hop gardens.

In 1971 the City of Canterbury closed its doors for the last time as a public house and was converted in to student accommodation servicing the local St Edmunds School.

We reopened the doors to the public, as a guest house, in August 2002 initially operating just 3 rooms. We have now expanded, due to increased demand, refurbishing further rooms to the present level of 8 rooms, all offering en suite or private facilities. Although the original 3 bars have been removed we have retained the original feel and period setting now used for our reception and breakfast area, also a comfortable lounge with views across the city.
