The King Charles Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Gillingham
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Very clean, fresh n tidy hotel. The staff were all very helpful, cheerful and friendly. I enjoyed a very nice bottle of wine from the bar and very reasonably priced too. The room was warm, clean n tidy. The bed was extremely comfortable with plenty of pillows. The bathroom was big, warm, clean n plenty of towels. There was someone on reception when I went out for a ciggie at midnight and I understood that it was possible to go out to smoke at any time, which was good.
Breakfast was basic but with plenty of choice and again the staff in the dining room were cheerful n friendly.
Overall a very enjoyable pleasant stay and I will definitely stay here again and will recommend to friends and family.

Stayed at the King Charles one night while on business at Greenwich University. For what you pay you can’t really knock it too much, all the staff were very friendly and the food at the bar was decent enough, the breakfast which was included was obviously pretty budget in terms of ingredients used for the cooked breakfast but again you can’t really expect much for the cost.

The hotel is generally a little rough around the edges, the room while clean had damp odour to it originating from the bathroom, the bed wasn’t too comfortable but I arrived at about 9pm and checked out at 7am so not too bad.

The hotel represents good value; just don’t expect anything fancy for what you’re paying. Will be visiting again in the near future and would probably stay again.

We stayed here for three nights to visit London and Canterbury which are both only one hour of driving from the hotel The staff was very helpful, we had a good breakfast and at evening some snacks in the bar with television. The rooms were OK, spacious enough to accomodate a family with three children. No parking problem, and the centre of Gillingham is close to the hotel where you can buy some stuff to prepare a picknick for lunch. Also nice is the nearby Splashes swimming pool.

I've had 3 stays at the King Charles Hotel and can highly recommend it. It is located close enough to Rochester University and provides good value, clean accommodation to suit all needs and group sizes. The staff are extremely helpful and willingly explained the loyalty card scheme as I planned to be a regular visitor whilst my nephew was at the university. Each of the rooms I have stayed in have had exceptionally comfy beds and clean facilities. Having slept on both sides of the hotel neither side is particularly noisy despite being on a main road and there were no noisy banging doors like in some hotels. The breakfasts have a wide variety of choice and the staff are happy to accommodate any special requirements.

There are plenty of restaurants and facilities within walking distance and good public transport links.

Given such reasonable prices (definitiely shop around online for deals though their own website had excellent prices and offers) I will defintitely stay again as family room facitlities are very good and spacious (i have an 8 yr old so freeview/bunkbeds/free breakfasts are a bonus).

We stayed here with our daughter and grandchildren following our son's wedding on 29th December. We found the reception staff very efficient, friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Even though our room was road side it was very quiet. Good value for money and would use it again. Grandchildren enjoyed staying in the hotel and liked the fish tanks.
