We arrived here after a couple of days in the Hotel Una in Brighton and we both felt that the Cottage in terms of value for money far outweighed the Hotel Una.
Our room was in the old part of the cottage overlooking the back garden. The room was very generously apportioned and was filled with everything you could reasonably expect in a B&B. Generous helping of chocolate biscuits always works wonders, as does some quality sachets of hot chocolate. I guess if your used to your plasma 40 inch TV and a DVD library running into the thousands, you probably won't be overly impressed with an 18 inch LCD TV - but we took the view that we weren't visiting Canterbury to watch TV at night anyway.
That said, and this is more of an observation, the cottage does lie next to a busy road and if your expecting to hear a pin drop at night, you might be disappointed. For us, the road noise quickly became background noise and we slept absolutely fine on both nights.
Breakfast was amazing. Everything freshly cooked or bought. Decent portions which is no bad thing these days.
