Tried to enquire regarding making quite a substantial booking for a wedding party as this accommodation is recommended by the venue. However, the owner is quite possibly the rudest person I've ever encountered. The answers given to my questions were not only blunt but incorrect, suggesting I was in the wrong when actually she did not hear my question as... More

My daughter tried to enquire about about a stay here for multiple people for her wedding next year. The lady answering the telephone was very rude from the start and unhelpful. Resulting in terminating the call . Why would an owner of a B and B be so inarticulate and rude. We will let our friends and family know to... More

I emailed the owner to find out about their T&Cs before making a booking - namely with regards to deposits and refunds, due to be being stung recently after an illness. This was their reply: "Morning again, We don't do 'provisional' 'cancel at the last minute' bookings, if that is what you are asking. However if we get adequate notice,... More

Warm, clean and very accommodating hosts. The room was a good size and the breakfast was plentiful The accommodation is very close to Winter Barns, which made this an ideal choice of location when staying overnight for a wedding reception.

Fantastic place, great secure motorbike parking, comfortable room and welcoming owners. Jackie went so far out of her way to accommodate us, she was amazing! My husband was taken to hospital by ambulance the day we were due to stay, leaving me in Whitstable with 2 motorbikes, 2 lids and luggage, with no idea where the B&B was. AA didn't... More

I felt compelled to write a review with the hope that some of my feedback may be taken on board. Firstly, room was absolutely beautiful and the house itself lovely. Secondly, breakfast was cooked to a very high standard. Cottage too far away from Canterbury if you are planning on easily visiting the sites/shops. Now to the main issue, our... More

We have stayed at the cottage a couple of times. In fact my nervous husband stayed there the night before our wedding with the nervous groomsmen. Lovely living space. Very high quality breakfast. Lovely owners. My husband says it's a home from home

This guest house is situated on a busy B-road, with a 40mph speed limit (but which most drivers think reads 70mph) on the outskirts of Canterbury, within walking distance of Kent cricket ground, a Sainsbury's local store, some pubs and the city centre. Arrived to find the obvious parking area had space for 3 cars and was currently occupied by... More

sylvanc0ttage, Owner at Sylvan Cottage, responded to this review

We are only a very small B&B but are fortunate to have enough parking space for 6 cars. We know that parking in an unfamiliar space can be difficult, so deliberately never hassle guests to move their car unless requested by other guests. On this occasion the reviewer’s car was unknowingly parked across the enclosed back garden entrance, where bikers... More

The kitchen is well equiped with dishwasher, washing machine, oven/microwave. Wifi in the whole house and in spatious garden. Canterbury is within walking distance although we took the bus back after diner. We... More

We were attending a wedding nearby and stayed there overnight. We were made to feel very welcome and we appreciated being allowed to check in a bit earlier so that we could change into our wedding clothes. it was very clean and comfortable and had everything we possibly needed.
