Stayed here for one night in December for the Christmas market and fair. It was the Dickensian weekend . The rooms were very comfortable and cosy , very clean . The small touches were unexpected , tea coffee biscuits and bottles of water . Unfortunately we didn't get up in time for breakfast so can't comment on that. The staff...

Somewhere to tell my tale since the website I booked it on seem to have chosen to ignore all the facts and put the bare minimum making this place look like an OK place to stay. Also because I contacted the hotel manager as he/she wasn't there when I checked out so I emailed but a month later....nothing, so I...

What's good about it? The location, and some of the staff are friendly. We chose this hotel for an overnight stay as it is in the centre of Rochester, opposite the cathedral. We are not fussy travellers so despite reading the reviews decided to give it a go as we felt that for a central hotel the price of £85...

Visiting Dickens Christmas markets today we could only get a seat in here for food as everywhere else packed. Thus we realised why. The table cloths had shower curtains covering them the toilets were really disgusting. I am sure Trading Standards would not pass these. The roast very unappetising dry roast potatoes no Yorkshire puddings in all pretty sad looking...

Decided to try again after a bad experience some years ago. What a change! Food price A1. food very good, hot, big home made Yorkshires, separate gravy pot, 4 veg + roast potatoes. Service a little slow, but on an event day in Rochester, understandable. Will definitely be back. What ever you've changed, keep it there, it's now right.

Me and my family stopped here for a Sunday dinner. It looked like a nice kept pub and the pricing was good. The restaurant was to the left as soon as you walked through the door, looked nice and there were a few other couples so we continued. All four of us had a roast dinner which was really good,...

The Hotel proved to be very rundown scaffolding around the building the room was small and very tired needing a update the breakfast was limited and not that good The location was ok for seeing the cathedral and Castle but the high street proved to be rather popular with the clubbing set and turned into a noisy evening/night?

Perfect location. Situated close to everything you could need. Great service. Warm and friendly. Rooms are a decent size and each with their own tassimo machine and fan (it was a scorching weekend). Will definitely be staying again....here's to next time! Oh and the view from the room.........

The location of the Hotel was excellent no need to take transport to an attraction. However the Hotel does need a face lift to bring it to 21st century. The showers in the rooms did not work to capacity and shower pump would solve the problem in all rooms. A painter and decorator should be used to make the rooms...
