Sue & Bob are great hosts! Staying on a boat was great fun, the rooms were clean and airy, the bed was comfortable and the nights were quiet. The breakfast was amazing, they were a little alarmed that we weren't eating enough, but we left the table stuffed every morning!

A lovely experience to spend a few days away on this boat moored on the Medway. Bob and Sue are very welcoming hosts and Bob provides a hearty cooked breakfast. I can recommend this b and b to anyone visiting the area who would like to try something just a little bit different.

This was our second stay at the Soverign as a group of friends touring the area. Big welcome and cuppa on arrival. Rooms clean and comfortable. Location quite unique. Sue and Bob are great hosts and have worked hard to convert this lovely boat into a successful B&B. Cooked breakfast was man size and set us up well for the... More

For a B & B with a difference this is strongly recommended. Don't expect a marina like Monte Carlo (it is more mud flats and some rotting 'hulks') but obviously very nautical - great views of the Medway and at high tide the B & B does float! Sue and Bob are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much... More

My Husband and I had a two night stay in the Yellow Cabin and it was perfect, we only wish we had longer to spend on the Sovereign . All your needs are looked after by Bob and Sue and we were made to feel like part of the family. Always a cuppa on hand and a smashing breakfast that... More

Delightful b+b in Rochester at Medway Bridge Marina. Lovely experience watching the river and the boatyard activities. Bob and Sue most welcoming - after minutes of meeting we felt we'd known them for years. Couldn't do enough for us. Hope to be back sometime and will definitely recommend to friends visiting the area.

A warm welcome, mugs of tea, comfortable room, hearty breakfast - what more could you want in a B & B? We would definitely stay there again. Warning to shower users (in Blue room) - you'd hit your head if taller than average - however, corner bath more than compensates - plenty of horizontal room!

Lee says now that the b+b boat on the isle of wight is no more, a genuinely unique experience. run by the friendliest of people and most comfortable at a reasonable price, i'll be back (tomorrow), also can't wait to stay here in summer.

Had the weekend at the Dicken's Festival and needed a place to stay - The Trip Advisor reports are true - Bob and Sue are very welcoming, the boat is wonderful and the rooms are great. You enter via the Medway Bridge Marina, park up and the boat is twenty yards away through the gates. Cracking breakfast and a smashing... More
