Through work we were staying 3 nights in Chatham. When I checked their website I just loved their décor. I phoned 2 weeks in advance but my first two choices of rooms were already booked. The staff recommend the Sky as a calm room.
The Sky has cathedral ceiling in the bathroom with a sky light. The shower is totally awesome. Three shower heads. One is the stationary kind with the adjustable head, one was hand held with the adjustable head and the other was from two parallel bars with pin hole water spouts. That was like having a massage. Could have spent hours in that shower. There was even a chair in shower.
Light to medium coloured wood is my choice over the darker colours. The whole room was done in "light pine" (I don't know woods). Had a kitchen area with sink, microwave, fridge, toaster and coffee maker and all the utensils glasses and dishes.
The bed was huge and comfortable. WiFi connection helped me stay in touch with the family.
The last night we were there we went to check out each others rooms. A colleague is an avid reader and loves books. Her room was the Study and she loved it. Suited her to a tee. They were all special. Wish I could have seen my first two choices, but maybe next time. Next I'll try for the Sky as my first choice.
The staff bent over backwards to help. As I sat in train station l could not find my ticket. Calling the hotel I asked if it was left in my room, which it was. I asked that they send it over by taxi, but one of the staff jumped in their car and got it to me in time for the train. Never have I seen that level of service anywhere I've been.
Totally unique, totally awesome.
