Perfect family place in Canterbury
Great location a 7 min walk from heart of city. Spacious bedroom and bathroom, very tidy, very clean and great decoration!! Very nice and helpful host. Perfect family room (union room) which is ideal for kids and parents! Nice cold and warm breakfast (suggestion to make it even better: having some fresh fruits available).

Having stayed in a number of B&Bs in Canterbury we found The Retro very warm and welcoming. It's reasonably close to the town centre (15 minute walk). I surprised myself and was up and ready for breakfast before the 7:30 start. The breakfast was very good, with all plates being cooked to order. Wonderful bacon! We will try to stay again the next time we are in town.

First class bed and breakfast. ***** 5star.
Excellent, very accommodating with our needs, requiring an early check in to enable us to get to a wedding in good time. Room tasteful and lovely, beds comfy, breakfast great. Kerry and Tony are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. Highly recommended this b&b good value too.
