The 2 of us stayed here for one night and found our room well decorated and a good size with a big bath and comfortable bed. The breakfast was really good and nothing was too much trouble. If we had any criticism it was that we were in room 1 which is at the front of the house and on... More

Stayed with my family in February 2015, and was really impressed. The rooms were clean and spacious, with comfortable beds. There is lots of parking, and a warm welcome on arrival. I have to mention the fabulous breakfast - nothing was too much! I was really impressed and would recommend.

Stayed here with my partner, brother and his partner. Was really nice and quiet. The breakfast was very nice indeed. Canturbury is a £15 taxi drive away if you plan to eat and drink there which we did. There is a nice pub two minutes walk away called The Anchor Inn which does food but we did not eat there... More

Stayed one night Sat 6 December. Beautiful old building (dating back to 1550), rooms large and exceptionally clean, beds very comfortable. Wonderful breakfast on Sunday morning, cooked exactly to our liking. Wonderful location for visiting Canterbury (approx. 4 miles away)

We picked the Pilgrims Rest as a weekend away to explore Canterbury and boy did we choose the right place. Far enough from deepest darkest Essex to ensure it felt like we were 'away' but without a long, boring and tiring drive. We arrived earlier then our booking in time, but when I called to confirm I could leave the... More

A real delight, spotless, well appointed and comfortable with adequate parking and its own bar. Breakfast which included home made jam and marmalade was first class with a wonderful and flexible choice. Ideally situated for touring Kent or an overnight on the way to the tunnel or ferry. The fact that a good evening meal can be found at the... More

At a short 10 minutes drive from Canterbury, the Pilgrims Rest is an excellent place to stay to enjoy this part of rural Kent. The hotel has off road parking, and is conveniently situated in the centre of this small and attractive village. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, with a friendly owner who was attentive and helpful without... More

Stayed here while in the area for a wedding. The property is welcoming and well appointed, the room (room 4) was a good size and well furnished . The bathroom was clean and the water pressure was high which meant showers were a delight. The breakfast was wonderful, especially the Pilgrims full English Breakfast, made with locally sourced ingredients. Gerrard,... More
