I stayed here for 2 nights - Monday and Tuesday - in a very small single room overlooking the car park. It was not noisy but could be on Friday/Saturday nights. The staff were friendly. I decided to have the hotel breakfast when I paid on arrival to save me having to go to a cafe each morning. Unfortunately that...

we stayed here as it was near to our friends house who were having a gathering and we didn't want to drive home the same evening. Its situation is good for seeing the whole town. The room we had is a little dated and in need of a little tlc but overall our stay was good. Beds very comfy and...

This is a lush little boozer with the rooms upstairs. Old fashioned decor which I like. The pub is directly opposite the station as soon as you exit. Perfect location for train travellers. The lady on reception was very helpful and friendly. I had the large double room which was ideal for size and a very comfortable bed. The shower...

I stayed at the Railway Hotel last night because I was attending a 50th birthday party nearby. The Victorian pub was nicely turned out and the bar staff were very friendly. The twin bedroom was furnished nicely and had a decent shower in the en- suite. The breakfast the next day was nice (£8 extra though). Recommended.

We had lunch here today and they fitted 11 of us in at very short notice. The food was fantastic - really properly lovely - and the service was so friendly and professional. Our noisy children were looked after and we drunken adults were indulged and made to feel really welcome. Thank you!

This is a very welcoming "Hotel", which is really an Inn with rooms. The rooms are spacious, very clean, and maintained to a good level. The staff in every area are friendly, helpful and always very polite. The breakfasts are on a separate basis, but there are so many places to eat in Faversham which gives a choice for every...

This is sold as a small double bedroom...but now they have moved the bed it is perfectly adequate and would compare favourably to the average size of a Premier Inn..We use this hotel regularly when visiting family as it is right opposite the railway station and a short walk to the high street....including a Wetherspoons for breakfast.The hotel charges £8...

This is a clean, comfortable, well furnished and well maintained hotel. The room had high quality linens / towels. Be adventurous and try something different from the Travelodge! You might get a surprise..

Well, I'm not wishing to critise the main hotel rooms as they are probably great... But we were sold the flat for 90 quid a night and to be be honest it was not to standard. It was obvious that someone was living in these rooms as there was clothes in the wardrobes and a bag of clothes on the...

I am disappointed to read this. This staff flat is available in emergencies for people who are stuck without a room. We don't advertise it and it is not part of the hotel. It is an empty 2 bed, kitchen, lounge and bathroom staff flat in clean and fair condition. Your complaint that someone was living there would be valid...

The previous reviews are quite accurate. The hotel is nice enough but the rooms are dated and tired and in need of modernising and sprucing up a little. Oh and the breakfast slot of 8:30-10:00 must be reviewed. An 8:00 start would be better!!!
