This is a belated review .. as I still cant get the experience out of my head. I try and make light of it now as I've have counselling ;-) It was so bad that it will form the basis of a script for my forthcoming TV sketch. Names will be changed though. The place looked enticing after a website... More

The gentleman who welcomed us was lovely and the building itself is stunningly quaint. There is so much potential to this place but for the following reason we will not be coming back, nor will we recommend it as a place to stay: - The walls and floors are very thin (no acoustic separation has been introduced to make this...

This guest house has beautiful surroundings and Roger and Susan couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The drive there alone was breathtaking! The rooms are very clean and comfortable, filled with character (the authentic beams are stunning). Definitely recommend this place. Sleeping there is a delight, it is so quiet and peaceful.

Lovely, Tranquil setting. Rolling green, animals grazing. Very quiet and pretty with a quaint and charming country cottage. Clean and comfortable bed and pillow. However, it is basic. No toiletries provided except for handwash. No hairdryer and the tower is small. It is ok but it is not cheap. I paid 78 quid so I did expect soap and shampoo... More

This b&b is ideally situated on the outskirts of Canterbury with only a short drive away from town. It has some lovely views over the valley and some nice local walks. The house was warm and cosy and the room comfortable. The owners were very welcoming, catered to our needs and were always on hand. The breakfast was plentiful, hot... More

Very nice place to stay at the countryside and walk in nature. The house has no direct neighbours, so you have a quite stay in the middle of a nice walking area. Very nice antique breakfast room. A house on such nice position you will only find if you know it is there, so you are lucky that you have... More

Beautiful country setting away from our usual city lifestyle for 2 nights. We were happy with our room, which was cosy and reflected what we thought was good value for money in this day and age. We chose this b&b on the basis that it is an old, quiet, country farmhouse with little pretence, so if what you're after is... More

So nice to make a return trip to this idyllic setting in the North Downs with superb relaxing walks.We were welcomed back like 'old friends' by the hosts which put us at ease instantly. We were in a different room this time but it still came up to the previous high standard we had experienced. The full English breakfast was... More

Although clean the room was slightly depressing and the whole place felt unwelcoming .The hosts were unfriendly.Breakfast was just adequate with a " little chef style fry".This was not a budget hostel but was poor value for money due to the lack of thought towards the guests .I would not reccommend Upper Ansdore
