Location great friendly and helpful staff Kim and Kelly get 5 stars each they took care of all our requests
Hotel is in process of being refurbished and the rooms are to be perfectly honest tired looking and room only terms apply, also some rooms do not have an on suit W.C. However this is clearly stated when you book and the price certainly reflects this providing probably the cheapest price in Medway. Great value and staff kindness gave us a happy experience. Wish them well with all the hard work they are undertaking.
I like the fact that the hotel is right in the middle of town, or on the hight street. the old Victorian building is always amused me. and found the pub with live football just on the first floor, is really a big bonus.
well of course the noises, but what do you expect? I was staying at the weekend, so there are party all around. there's no soap in the soap dispenser, I think that is the house keeper mistakes. forget to filled it up.
Location, excellent. Staff, very helpful Carpark, easy access, late key. Plus the fact that it is being upgraded and just not left to go to pieces, even whilst I was there, but it was no problem ! My room was alright !
The fact that there is not a lift.
Nothing except the location
It was cold, no meal meant no breakfast either, I did not expect thast. Shower must have been 40 years old, car park was full I had to park and pay down the road. Room etc was so dated it felt dirty even if it was not
Great view of railway from my room. Suited my love of trains. Superb location in Central Rochester. Very near book shops and great pubs, cafés and restaurants.
No breakfast available due to renovations.
The lady at reception was exceptionally pleasant, friendly and helpful throughout. My room, though old-fashioned, was large, attractively decorated, with lots of storage space, and overlooked the historic High St. It was nice to have a china teapot in the room, not just mugs. There was a hairdryer and TV, but no other amenities. But the location was perfect for the High Street, the Cathedral and the biggest second hand bookshop in England.
I recognise it's an old hotel, but it was looking tired. My bathroom was small and awkward to move around in. All the lighting was very dim, and reading in bed was almost impossible. On one occasion my room had not been made up when I got back in the evening, and although the pleasant receptionist immediately went and did it herself, I felt they should know if a room has or has not been made up. I had no difficulty myself, but their very strict check-in times (no later than 8 pm) caught other guests on the hop. I see no reason why it should be so early.
ITS VALUE FOR MONEY, CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE.
DECOR IS A BIT DATED.
The four poster bed
The place is being refurbished but not bad in the circumstances
The two receptionists were the only staff I saw, but they were both friendly, helpful, empathic and good fun, The location was ideal for my purposes since I was on foot and wanted to be in central Rochester.
There were no breakfast facilities because of a major refurbishment programme - although, in fairness this was flagged up and there are loads of good cafes and pubs doing breakfast. I used Wetherspoons. The room was cold so what it will be like in the depth's of winter, I have no idea. The room I was in was very limited in its facilities: No safety mat for bath: shaver light did not work: lino in bathroom very scruffy: no bedheads: no easy reach for over-bed light: TV miniscule. Again the staff did all they could to obviate these deficiencies and I felt able to cope. But luxury it was not!
The receptionist was very helpful with the telly and taxi numbers.
The room smelt a bit of fresh paint and looked a bit tired, but it was very comfortable for the money.
friendliness of staff when checking in.
arrived back to hotel and couldn,t open the gate to courtyard, causing me a lot of stress. Had to put ca round corner.
The location of this hotel is right on the main high st, finding your way by car is a challege. Best way is by the north off the ring road. This hotel has character by the loads and they are trying to update the decoration. The two nights we stayed there were an experience. The linen was clean and the carpet was new. The beds are comfortable. Around the hotel there are signs of it's age and they are trying to fix it up on a budget. The central staircase has shallow steps and is easy to climb. We do not see this as a disabled access friendly place if in a wheelchair. No lift and narrow passages. To sum it all up, you pay your money and take your choice. Do not expect this place to be a grand hotel Brighton. The hotel does not provide food, but you have a wide choice along the high st. Staff were excellent.
Bathrooms in need of re-fit. Parking is in need of a proper revision. there are too many rooms and not enough spaces. Take your own hangers for heavy coats.
Bedroom was to cold
Great value, good central location on high street, 10 mins walk from train station. Good for if you just want somewhere cheap to stay for the odd night. Hotel has character - the staircase is quite impressive.
The rooms were a bit tatty and in need of redecoration and modernisation. Lighting was not great - quite dim and some of the bulbs did not work. Bit noisy from nearby nightclub. Bed not that comfy but ok for the odd night. Early check out time (10am). Nowhere secure to leave our luggage when we went to look round town after checking out - they let us put them behind the reception desk but it was clearly visible and the desk was not manned at a times.
Wallpaper hanging off wall,shower held together by gaffer tape to the wall ,tiles coverd in mould! Filthy dirty room and I mean inches of dust dirt and filth! Staff what staff? Have pictures to back up!
comfortable bed,en suite.
wallpaper peeling from walls, room needs to be decorated
The staff are good, but nobody on duty after 8 pm . There is currently nothing good to say about the hotel except I got a full refund for the two nights spent there
Appalling is a good description, room totally falling apart, on suite filthy. The toilet unacceptable.curtains hanging off rail, wallpaper peeling. You can study insect life of Rochester by looking between partial glazing.
Price for what we got
The booking was lost and had to stay in a sub standard room
Liked being right on the high street...within walking distance for restaurants. Would use hotel again.
Bed was a little uncomfortable, bathroom needed attention.
The ground floor bar area looked modern, clean and cavernous, apparently a focal point on weekend evenings.
Black scale/ filth below waterline in loo, bath surround adrift and heavily stained, wallpaper peeling from bedroom walls, bedroom window frames rotten through and poorly fitting secondary frames, curtains shabby and secured with string, no seat or writing area, Reception displayed two AMEX credit card signs but did not accept AMEX, very noises high street activity in early hours below windows which could not be closed
Location and staff. Would stay there again and look forward to seeing it renovated!
the ancien style big rooms proximity of the Castel and town center
saturday night in Rochester Hight street
It was in good location yes it does need redecorating but once decor done it will look nice
Did not think the price of 45 pounds just for a room was good other places cheaper and with breakfast included apart from that it was ok
LOCATION STAFF OK
