We loved staying with Barbara, she is an absolutely fantastic host. The room was perfect, very clean and comfortable and I super close to the train station and the town centre. Next time we are in Canterbury we will certainly be back!

Barbara was a great, very polite and kind host. When we arrived we were handed towels, hygiene articles which was very nice since we traveled with only hand luggage. Perfect room for a couple or just 2 friends.

Barbara was very welcoming and friendly and made me feel very at home. The room was spotless, the bed was comfortable, the breakfast was lovely, and everything worked fine... except that the room felt a little cold even with the heating on full, and I was woken up by noise from the railway tracks in the night. The windows felt like they were letting in cold and sound - they are not up to modern double glazing standards in my estimation. This is a great place to stay unless perhaps you are a light sleeper.

Response from Barbara:
Thanks Anna for the feedback! I'm sorry that you felt you didn't sleep well. We always try to assist our guests with their stay and had you asked about the heating I would have been happy to assist you. Regarding the temperature the room has central heating and full modern double glazing - as does the rest of the house. The room also has a second duvet in the event that the heating is insufficient for particular guests. Regarding the proximity to the station this is a feature of the house and can be seen on the map. Inevitably this means for some large goods trains you may hear some sound on occasion but should not be a surprise. The vast majority of trains are quiet as they slow down on their approach to the station. Kind regards, Barbara

I'm Argentinian living in the UK for 6 years mostly in London and in Canterbury in the last 2 years with my partner Tom and our friendly cat Punch. I'm very sociable and like meeting new people so I thought Airbnb hosting would be worth trying. Whether you are willing to share travel experiences or if you want to relax and explore, I'll make sure you feel like at home.
