We stayed here after a birthday celebration held in one of the hotels separate function rooms and wow these people know how to put on a party! From checking in with welcoming and helpful Reception staff, to the clean and comfortable bedrooms and a breakfast to set you up for the day, our stay here was excellent. The bedrooms have... More

Let's face it, at £84 for the night for two - including breakfast - it was never going to be luxurious.... However after finding what looked like cocaine baggies stuffed in the handle of the kettle it was clear that cleaning staff were either partying on the job or couldn't be bothered... Now, the kettle... Where to plug it in...... More

Good standard for a budget hotel. Staff are generally very friendly and helpful with only the odd lapse at reception. Have stayed here several times. Breakfasts and dinners very acceptable. Rooms comfortable, clean and tidy. "Real Ale" in the bar needs some attention-obviously a function of the number and frequency of pints they sell. Recomend!

This hotel is very good value. The room was spacious and very comfortable, the shower was big enough to fit more than one person in. The staff where very friendly and helpful. There was a good selection of food to choose from. The breakfast was good 10 out of 10. I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends.

Came here for a wedding reception and it was brilliant. The room that was used is huge and the 2 members of staff that were running the bar were a right laugh, always friendly and chatty. The decorations in the toom were perfect, there were lovely chair covers and the little sprinkles of sparkling gems on the table. Everything was... More

An interesting building, originally built as a very large NAAFI and now converted into a pleasant hotel. Plenty of on-site parking and only a short walk to the centre of Gillingham for pubs, eateries etc. Easy, no fuss check-in and pleasant reception staff. The room was comfortable, and spacious, the beds were comfy and the whole place was nice and... More

friendly staff, good breakfast, comfortable rooms. We liked it very much. Nice hotel with own parking and a good base to go for trips in the area. Rochester is very close and the way back to Folkstone was easy.
