"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.
