This is a lively pub with rooms above. We arrived on a Friday evening and was staying for two nights, the pub clientele appears to be builders who come straight from site, a few seasoned drinkers and a large young noisy set. There was no proper welcome at check-in, one of the bar staff just gave us our key and... More

We arrived at the hotel to find it was really a pub with rooms. The entrance to the car park was through a narrow gateway. When we checked in they told us that it was the Landlord's birthday and there was a party on. The original room we were given overlooked the courtyard with people smoking below so it was... More

We stayed at the Dolphin on Saturday the 8 August 2015. A charity event was taking place so no parking and loud noise until 12.30 at night. It was a hot night but we couldn't open the windows because a live group was playing just yards from our bedroom window. I had booked the rooms for my family who have... More

In a good location with its own car park to the rear, it is a rather basic hotel which could be run better. But it is picturesque and seemed adequate for our Saturday night stay. Unfortunately, our room overlooked the rear courtyard where drinkers were sitting in the open - not a problem during the day but extremely annoying at... More

Okay for an overnight stay if you do not like Travel Lodge/ Premier style hotels . . Breakfast fine but problems could occur if you stay at the Pub/Hotel on a busy night . Staff attentive but building and rooms need slot of TLC . Not exactly quirky but good location in the centre of town.

Was let down by an overbooking at my original choice nearby so was not given much option of where to stay. Basically a pub with rooms. My room was very clean and no issues. Also well furnished by a local fair trade furniture supplier and I ended up buying something there too. Evening meal was perfectly acceptable and breakfast (included)... More

We stayed as part of a wedding group and it very quickly became obvious that the venue has got so much potential but is very poorly managed, (if at all). Our room looked out into a forecourt that had young local drinkers screaming and shouting until gone 1am. No effort was made to ask them to keep their voices down... More

Needed an overnight stay around Gillingham for work, it happened to be the Glastonbury weekend too. Lots of locations around and about were too pricey or too far from Gillingham. I settled for the Dolphin and booked B&B in a single room for £49. Pretty good? On arriving at the Dolphin I was informed that they only served breakfast from... More

We booked 5 rooms as part of a wedding party thinking it was a local hotel for an evening stay. When we arrived, it was a typical pub with grotty carpets and very very dated rooms. We literally dropped our bags before the wedding. On our return we were greeted with a shed load of drunken kids outside which was... More
