Arrived on a "Ladies Night", which was taking place in ballroom. Not intentionality! Many ladies/hen parties were staying overnight. When the ballroom was declared open & the ladies left the Reception area, quiet reigned. The only drawback was that "ordinary" guests couldn't order food between c 19.30 & 21.00 hrs. In the circumstances the staff coped magnificently! 50 + Masters... More

Stayed over one night break in a journey, booked through Booking.com at a very reasonable price. We did not know what to expect but found a surprisingly good, clean, large privately owned hotel. The evening meal was superb, the breakfast good, the rooms were large, clean and comfortable. Well worth the money, very impressed.

Thank you for your recent review of the King Charles Hotel in Gillingham We feel that Breakfast is a very important meal, and this is why we believe in offering it free of charge to all of our guests. We are trying to persuade our fish to stop having babies, but I think they are too happy! More

Bit anonymous, but that's ok, and staff seemed fine. Room decent enough, but towels in bathroom appalling - old, threadbare and grubby looking. Breakfast only just passed muster. Nothing to see in Gillingham, and unless you use your car it's a drag getting to and from Rochester where there is lots to see.

Thank you for your recent review of the King Charles Hotel in Gillingham I am sorry that you felt your towel was not of a satisfactory standard, but we are in the process of replacing all of our towels. There is a train or bus service which goes to Rochester, and the station is only a ten minute walk from... More

We did an overnight stay at this hotel on our trip from Dover to Wales and we were very impressed with the service, staff and value for money. The beds were extremely comfortable and the family room was spacious. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all.

I stopped there for a couple of nights for work purposes, so didn't want or expect much. It was superb value compared against a near travelodge costing £3.00 more per night with limited parking, the usual just 10 TV channels, expensive wifi and breakfast not included. This hotel offered everything the near Travelodge doesn't for less!! Loved the breakfast being... More

I heard this was a family run hotel with some character so chose to stay here for a short while whilst visiting some family nearby. It definitely has character as the furnishing are very old and I don't think they've updated anything much over the years. The rooms are tidy but old and in need of some modernising. The bed...

We've been to Gillingham to meet family, so we didn't spend a lot of time at the Hotel. Breakfast is nice, if not for the slow procedure of toast, the staff is great and the bar has perfect opening/closing time. The room has no frills, but overall comfortable, just misses a mini fridge (useful for some medicines) and a wider... More

We stayed while visiting relatives for a couple of nights. We were looking for something cheap but not nasty - with breakfast - and a real bed for our 12 year old - not a sofa bed or put-you-up. This is a budget hotel - so don't expect posh, but what you can look forward to are pleasant, helpful staff,... More

Thank you for your recent review of the King Charles Hotel in Gillingham We do not believe that children should have to sleep in ‘sofa beds’ or ‘camp beds’ like some hotels, so we always have real beds in our family rooms. I am glad that you enjoyed the fish, and I hope you will visit us again. More
