We stayed in this B&B on BH weekend Saturday night. Room was lovely and clean with all the facilities you need and the breakfast and service was outstanding. I totally recommend this beautiful characteristic B&B. There is a pub close by if you wanted to eat and have a drink.

This is an excellent little hotel. With only 5 rooms, it has a warm, cosy feel. The rooms are deceptively spacious and comfortable. The hotel is very clean and the proprietors are very friendly and attentive. Breakfast is excellent with generous portions. Littlebourne is a small village, conveniently placed for striking out to explore North East Kent. although the hotel... More

We stayed at the Pilgrims Rest for two nights as a base for touring the Kent coast. It was perfect in every way. Good hospitality, spacious room, large bathroom and excellent breakfast. We would recommend it.

Stayed overnight due to a local wedding. Great location, good parking. Quiet, clean room, has everything you might need in a B&B. There was newly delivered furniture in the lobby so they clearly invest too. Breakfast could not be faulted, generous selection and portions, fantastic quality food and good service. Very friendly owners, all very straightforward and pleasant. Thank you!

Would like to state we didn't actually have a chance to stay here due to my partner being ill. So we tried to cancel and was willing to pay a fee but didn't think we would have to pay the full price of the room. The so called owner was very rude to us and told us they de didn't... More

Your "review"has been brought to my notice and I thought it was appropriate to give a little more detail to put your comments into context. You booked via booking.com for a one night stay at our bed and breakfast for Saturday the 18th of July which meant we were then fully booked that night. At approximately 6.30 pm on the... More

10 of us stayed there for a wedding in June and we were made most welcome. The owners were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was divine and the home made jam was too die for. I would recommend this place highly. The rooms were exceptionally comfortable and clean and the little village was lovely. We will... More

A great B&B handily located a few minutes drive from Canterbury so great as a base to explore East Kent. The room was very clean, uncluttered and well appointed with everything we needed. The bathroom had a great shower,plenty of hot water. Breakfast was great with a good selection and my favourite fried bread (slice) with the English breakfast. The... More

Great B&B, room was nice and cosy, Breakfast was very good, staff very helpful. Good area for getting around, also good bus routes if you don’t want to drive. There are a couple of pubs in the village, bit on the expensive side but close at hand. Canterbury is a short ride from the accommodation. In all I would recommend... More

We were also given mild vegetable soup tasters, it was lovely. They were all very welcoming and even more so when we back in the... More

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
