Quirky old hotel. It is a little like being in a weird fawlty towers episode. The staff are very friendly and get everywhere. I say this as we eat down the road at the Thai. The same staff. owned by same lady, who sat and chatted with us until 1am. It looks dirty and messy and could put people off.... More

We stay there recently and enjoyed it so much we went back again !!!! The staff were the friendliest we've ever met. Breakfast was delicious. The staff went above and beyond to help us out in a few situations. We will be pre booking this hotel in the years to come. Dennis and Laura :).

Despite only 4 people dining in the whole hotel, service was slow. Some of the cutlery was sticky, bread came in horrible plastic baskets, and the food was devoid of all... More

We only needed to stay there for one nightso we decided to give it a try and I really don't see what all the negative reviews are about. It's a 2 star hotel so people cannot expect too... More

We were staying in this hotel for a 50th Birthday we were attending at the hotel. It was booked by someone else on our behalf so I didn't have a clue what the hotel was going to be like. Let me say, I was shocked when I arrived! The staff were rude on check in, was given our room key... More

oh my word, please don't stay here .. I arriveud to a typical Rochester high street greeting, namely a woman profusely vomiting directly outside, the hotel had a funny smell to it ( think mould/damp covered up with glade and febreeze) The room was a disgrace and the mattress appeared to have a ginger stain on it, I wouldn't like...
