"Great stay in Canterbury"

A really good place to stay - excellent location and very interesting apartment. Close to all the many attractions in Canterbury and around.
Very helpful owners.
You could get by without a car as near buses and 2 Rail Stations.
Thoroughly recommended

"Cozy artsy house"

The old fire station house was very nice and artsy.

I was there with my family ( 4 people in total and 1 additional person on a first night).

Sebastian has kindly provided some teas, coffees and milk at the house during our stay. The beds were comfortable and the house was very quiet and clean. Clean towels were provided for every individual of us. No molds or dirt was seen in the house. The house is in close proximity to the railway station (10 mins walk), to the downtown and shopping, cathedral, Canterbury tales.

The only issue that we had there was that the house was abit cold, the heater was set to be turned on 8 hr per day, it would have been nicer if the heater was run longer or continuously throughout the entire day.

I recommend the place for a family gathering to have the entire house for yourself with some privacy. Sebastian was friendly and answered all our questions very well.

"Great location, a real home from home with everything we needed and more"

We stayed here for a week over Christmas and had a lovely time. It's perfectly located in Canterbury, a short walk to all that the city centre has to offer yet not amongst the hustle and bustle. I stayed here with my wife and two infant boys, it had everything we needed, with the owners adding a cot, high chair and other things which meant we didn't have too much to bring down in the car. They even dressed a Christmas tree in the lounge for us and added some decorations, so it was very Christmasy, especially with the backdrop of Canterbury and it's amazing history and architecture. It offers good sized rooms all round,with two generous bathrooms and a real quirky lay out. The owners were very helpful, always at the end of the phone, yet, left us to it, giving us our privacy. A great place to stay and discover Canterbury, we would certainly recommend it and will stay there again when we next visit. A massive thank you to Sebastian and Adelle!

"Fantastic Property, Great Location"

We stayed here for a family gathering and it was the perfect choice. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. I really enjoyed the quirky decor and the location was excellent. The owners were so helpful and nothing was too much. I would recommend this property.

"Great space for a group or family in Canterbury"

The Arthouse is a great space just outside the city centre and perfectly located a 5/10 minute walk from the station. We were in Canterbury for a wedding and, as a group of friends, were looking for somewhere to stay where we could relax and get ready together in comfort rather than in separate hotel rooms. We were in the main building meaning we had 2 good size bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a lounge, dining area and kitchen all to ourselves. Everything we needed was already there, including a great range of teas and coffees, cereals and milk etc and the kitchen, although small, still managed to house all utensils and crockery needed for our stay.
A lot of love and care has obviously been put into the Arthouse and the owners have a good eye for detail, with lots of artworks (obviously!), books and nick-naks to investigate.
I'd definitely return to The Arthouse and recommend it for anyone looking for something a bit different when staying in Canterbury.

"The Perfect location, a comfortable home from home feel."

We came down with our son & his family for his graduation. It was so much more convenient than an hotel, with off road parking & WiFi. Easy walk into town. We could babysit whilst quite relaxed, bedrooms are comfortable & original artwork quite imaginative. Kitchen adequate, dining area really nice-nice touch with teas n coffees etc. Only one criticism is low backed settees are difficult to relax back on otherwise a very enjoyable weekend. Thank you.
