“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was definitely the most modern we've stayed in for a long time. Friday nights can be noisey as it holds a disco club from 8.00pm until 2.30am for the over 30's and guests allow their doors to slam when coming to their rooms. Very annoying when you're sound asleep.

Thank you for choosing to stay @ the Best Western Plus Coniston Hotel and taking the time to post your very valuable comments on the Trip Advisor.

I was pleased to read that you found the modern features of the hotel to your liking and had an enjoyable stay.

We hold the over 30’s night once a month and I was sorry to hear of the annoyance you felt due to the inconsiderate slamming of the doors during your stay.

The Superbreak deal at this hotel was fantastic value for money. Hotel was modern and clean. Super King bed was to die for but our room only had two small windows so a bit claustrophobic. Couldn't get the hang of the mood lighting and window blind control but struggled through. Dinner first night in their restaurant was pleasant. Food was very nice and we had a very good waitress who looked after us well. The right hotel in the wrong town though! Not much in Sittingbourne to recommend.

I was pleased to read that you found the hotel to be a great value for money and enjoyed the food and service.

Although Sittingbourne itself is a quite town it is in a very convenient location and short distance to some very popular tourist places such as Canterbury, Whitstable and Leeds Castle.

Thank you for your recommendations and we trust that you will choose us again for your accommodation needs in the area and look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel

Excellent spacious room, immaculately clean Hotel, with very friendly and helpful staff. We did have a problem with the air conditioning which would not turn off and the room was extremely cold, but it seemed to be just a problem in our unit. The night reception young man was on the case as soon as we complained and sorted it out for us. Would definitely go back to this Hotel.

We were blown away with the pleasant and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. The meal in the restaurant was excellent and the service was outstanding. Lovely spacious room with all amenities and a lovely king size bed. I could go on, but just go there if in the district. You will not be disappointed!

Sittingbourne itself has little to offer but this modern hotel was an oasis. The room was really large: lovely big bed, separate large area for a work station, zone lighting, good sized bathroom, safe. Coffee and iced water in foyer a nice touch. Well located on London Road but very quiet. I didn't mind that the window looked onto a blank wall as there were black-out blinds: always handy in the summer months. We didn't have breakfast here and regretted it as there are no cafes nearby.

This is the fourth time I have stayed at this hotel and it is definately the staff that make it, in particular one of the Managers' Jamie, who went well out of his way to make our stay as well as can be. Clean, air conditioned rooms with very comfortable beds and pillows ensuring a good night's sleep. Never disappointed with food in the bar, restaurant can sometimes be hit or miss, with quality of meals.

We have just returned from a two night weekend break here with the first night dinner and breakfast offer. It was excellent value, the staff were so friendly and pleasant, always smiling and happy to help.
The room was a decent size,plenty of sockets and mirrors, the only thing I didnt like was the glass door on the bathroom, you couldnt lock it and there is a gap under the door- every sound can be heard from the bedroom so it wasnt very private.
The meals in the restaurant were beautiful, I can recommend the salmon starter or welsh rarebit, the beef was gorgeous for the main as was the chicken, and the sticky toffee pudding was the best we had ever had.
The breakfast was buffet full english with everything that you would expect from a four star hotel, the hash browns were really nice, you could eat as much as you wanted with an excellent choice.
There were two weddings on whilst we were there so it was a bit noisy outside, it was quieter in the bar and it was nice to people watch and look at the various dresses etc.
I would highly recommend the hotel to anyone and would definitely go again.
A big thank you to the staff for making our stay so nice.
We visited Whitstable -excellent, well worth a visit as was Herne Bay and Faversham. We did go to Margate but only stayed there for half an hour as it was full of chavs.
