A lovely apartment near downtown and train station

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Americans, don't be alarmed that this apartment is near the train station. You'll never hear a single train as they are very quiet. The apartment itself is in a very quiet neighborhood and convenient to downtown Canterbury, the train station, and a small grocery store. It is also surprisingly large with three couches in a very large dining/living room. The kitchen is well equipped and we made breakfast every morning for the nine people in our traveling party that were staying in nearby apartments. There is also a washing machine in the kitchen with two folding racks for hanging clothes to dry. The upstairs bedrooms were comfortable and the bathroom is large with both a shower and a bath tub. Richard met us at the train station even though we were several hours delayed (we texted him when we knew our arrival time at Canterbury West) and showed us around the apartment.

Good place to stay near city centre

  • 4 of 5

Canterbury is a wonderful city and this flat is in easy walking distance from the city centre/Cathedral.

Supermarket nearby, very close to the station (with hispeed trains to London) and with own off-street parking for one car. Kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and oven.

Only point for taking off one star: the bed in the master bedroom was slightly too short and hard for my husband.

Great location and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for three nights while touring the area and loved staying in the apartment. Location was convenient, with grocery store, restaurants, etc. close. Apartment had everything we needed for our stay. Richard met us on our arrival and gave us a nice overview of the apartment and where everything was located. Highly recommend.

A recommander

  • 5 of 5

Adresse idéale pour visiter Canterbury ( 5 minutes à pieds ! du centre commercial ET touristique ) et le Kent, si l'envie vous prend : Rochester, Margate ( station balnéaire défraîchie mais qui tend à renaître ), Ramsgate,

Whitstable ( charmante rue commerçante ) sont à une poignée de miles.

L'appartement est très bien équipé : belle cuisine ( lave-vaisselle, lave-linge

etc), deux grandes chambres, SDB avec douche ET baignoire, salle de séjour cosy avec TV, lecteur DVD, WIFI... et parking ( quand on sait que tout stationnement est payant, ce n'est pas négligeable). Seul (petit) bémol:

la (très) petite fenêtre du séjour qui l'assombrit de façon constante. Heureusement la pièce bénéficie d'un éclairage judicieux et de la clarté naturelle de la salle à manger ( grande baie ).

Excellent contact avec M. BOARD, disponible, attentif et, à l'image de son

appartement, charmant.
