Had planned to stay in Premier Inn but was fully booked by the time we got round to doing it. Found the Sovereign B&B on the internet so didn't know what to expect. Only stayed one night as we had drove our daughter from Birmingham to UCA university. Welcomed on the boat by Bob who offered us a much needed... More

We stayed on a Saturday night - in yellow cabin. Made to feel so welcome from moment of arrival. Greeted with a lovely cup of coffee. Nothing is too much trouble for hosts Bob and Sue. Lovely clean, large + very pleasant room. Entire ship is spotless and has some beautiful art pieces. A very novel and interesting B +... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and the boat was very interesting. The room was spotlessly clean and the breakfast very appetising. We walked from the boat into Rochester along a pleasant path and enjoyed a meal in one of the many restaurants in this really lovely town.

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.
