Having just returned from a weekends stay, I would think that I would say this hotel is exactly what it says it is ***, it is comfortable and clean ( always a good start) but it could do with a pick me up, we were there for a reunion dinner, and the food on the night was very nice, but... More

Stayed here for 1 night a few weeks ago and had a lovely stay. On arrival the staff were friendly and gave all the information you need about the hotel. The room was spacious and had all the amenities expected - kettle, hairdryer, TV etc. The room was a little hot (it was 22 degrees outside) but with the window... More

What a little gem. Very comfortable Excellent food. The outside does not look very inviting but don't let that stop you staying. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is just off the A2 and ideal for exploring the medway towns. The only negative we had was the bedrooms were very hot.

Stayed for three nights on a visit to the Chatham area. Received upgrade to honeymoon suite which was lovely. Breakfast (cooked to order) and staff great but didn't try restaurant as there are so many options around the area.

We stopped over for 1 night on our way to France. The staff are friendly, the rooms clean and their restaurant more than adequate. The waiters are very helpful and try as much as possible to accommodate guests' special requests. Would definitely stopover again if an opportunity presents itself

The outside of the Hotel does not do it justice, stayed here for one night as part of a Newmarket Holidays trip , when we arrived I was a little dubious but once inside I relaxed. The Staff are superbly friendly and efficient, bar areas and Restaurant very nice indeed, better than some four star hotels I have stayed in.... More

The hotel has a large car park. There are 3 floors and 1 lift. The restaurant was nicely set up with candles on each table (butane) and tablecloth. The food was good but we ate as part of a tour group so our 3 courses were pre selected. The bar was small however the drinks were reasonably priced. The staff... More
