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

We stayed for 2 nights in the blue cabin, and wasted so much time gazing out of the window at the ever changing view, totally fascinating. The warm welcome was accompanied... More

I booked the Green Cabin at very short notice, but it was worth it. Bob and Sue are very friendly and welcoming, making me feel good about my possible moving to the area. Bob cooked breakfast which was very tasty and filling. p.s. If you read this Bob and Sue, I got the job! Thank you for your kindness, it... More

The rooms are attractive and spotless; Bob cooks his renouned breakfast to order and you are made to feel welcome from the moment... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights for her masters graduation. Great boat, really big and lots of room. Rooms where spotless and the breakfast was great. Sue and Bob make this B&B, and they have some great stories. Would definitely recommend it to you if you are down in Rochester!

A truly unique experience! We're were up from Italy for our daughter's graduation from Uni Kent and really wanted a family environment. Sue and Bob are top B&B hosts - wonderful breakfast to your specifications (down to how crispy you want your bacon); unique, well-planned rooms; lots to see in the area (if you have a car or are a...

I stayed in Rochester for work and was put up in the Sovereign by my client. I did not expect my accommodation to be on a boat and I was equally pleasantly surprised by the exceptional greeting and outstanding service offered by sue and bob. A truly memorable experience and possible the best b&b I have ever come across! Highly... More
