Stayed recently at the Premier Inn, Rochester. Check-in was excellent.
There is a keycard system to access the lifts and rooms but, the keycards proved rather unreliable. We had to have them changed a few times over our three day stay. Reception staff were very apologetic and changed them quickly each time. Our rooms, however, were lovely and comfortable. Everything was perfect. They were clean, crisp and fresh. We were at the front of the hotel and there was double glazing and air conditioning. The beds were very comfortable. Each day we were there, we returned to a very crisp and fresh room. Excellent housekeeping, lovely staff.
Although the breakfasts were all you could eat for £7.99, we did feel that this was a bit expensive for couples who only wanted bacon and egg and a slice of toast. However, if you have children with you, then your children eat free, which is very good value. There were lots of children tucking in and enjoying the foodfest. We felt, however, that we were subsidising the families.
They do serve a limited menu of 2 meals for a tenner, from 12.00 until 6.30 pm which looked good value. We ate later, however, and felt the meals were not good value for money and rather small. We had to wait quite a long time. There are a lot of food outlets around though, all within walking distance. There is a Mcdonalds (opposite), Frankie and Bennys, Chiquitos, Exchange. We went to Frankie and Bennys one evening. A very vibrant eatery, but that will be the subject of another review! For those who like a spot of bingo, there is a Gala Bingo hall next door! We had a look in there! If you join (free!), you can enjoy competitive bar prices and they even serve food! Prices were good there. We did join, sounded like fun! Got a free "Fan Dabber Dozi" pen, but unfortunately, didn't get to go and sample the joys of bingo. May just try it another time! There were lots of places to eat with offers at each. There's even a cinema if you want to watch the latest blockbuster! There's a Diggerland within walking distance to keep the children happy.
The staff in the Premier Inn are brilliant! Nothing is too much trouble. In particular, Mike, Jamie and Katie were so helpful and friendly. The attitude of all the staff is excellent.
I would definitely return to the Premier Inn, Rochester and recommend it unreservedly, especially if you have kids who like their breakfast!
