The Pilgrims Rest is situated in a pleasant Kent village and the hotel has plenty of free parking spaces. We found the owner to be both helpful and friendly and the bedroom with its onsuite had all we needed. Tea and coffee making facilities were provided and we both had a good nights sleep. Breakfast next morning consisted of a...

Booked as a surprise for my girlfriend's birthday. The room was really nice and spacious, very well presented. Considering it is a converted house, noise doesn't travel and it feels very private. The owners have a lovely dog who is keen to say hello but only appears once you're in the communal areas. The breakfast was very good, the staff...

Found this B&B by accident whilst searching the web and what a find! Absolutely fantastic. Exceptionally clean room, wonderful freshly cooked breakfast and welcoming proprietors. You couldn't ask for more. Will definitely return.

We had a great stay at the Pilgrims Rest and found the staff to be pleasant, the prices to be reasonable and the B&B itself to be very pleasant with good sized rooms and comfortable amenities. Breakfast was tasty, too. It's a shame we were only there for the one night!

While visiting friends in Littlebourne, they put us up here--and what a wonderful idea they had. Parts of the building date back to the 16th century. We found that an interesting touch. The owners, Mr. and Mrs. McNicholas, are gracious hosts and turn out an ample breakfast that helped jump-start our day. The inn currently has six rooms and we...

Stayed here one night with my daughter as we had a wedding at a venue close by. The owners welcomed us and were friendly throughout our stay. I booked a twin room and we had two rooms, a double and single room! It was very clean with lovely fresh good quality bedding. I had a brilliant nights sleep, although situated...

Very warm welcome and a lovely room provided for us. Plenty of advice given on where to go and what to see. After a lovely evening in nearby Canterbury, our stay was topped off with a fine cooked breakfast. Secure parking for the bikes was an added bonus and gave us peace of mind. Also reasonably priced.

Visited on an overnight for business. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. The bed was comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. Parking onsite was handy. I had the full English breakfast which was fine. The owner was really helpful when we had to change dates the last minute.
