“Great customer service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

When I arrived to check in, I found out to my detriment that the booking company had moved my stay a day later and I did not realise this with the confirmation email I received. However, Rosie at Reception and the Manager Tracey came to the rescue and really helped me out!
The room was clean, modern, funky lighting, great space and most importantly a cosy bed. Needed to review this stay and I travel a lot!!

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.

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.

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.

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.
