    Rochester is very charming.

    Rochester is very charming. The High Street is very lovely with lots of quality second hand shops, if this is your thing. I was absolutely mesmerized by the castle. Well worth climbing the stairs all to the top, especially on a sunny day, the view is amazing. (check for opening times). The cathedral is really beautiful, do go inside if you are there. You can just go in and explore the cathedral or do a guided tour (also check for opening times). The town has a very rich history. You could also choose do do a walking trail along the river. The Royal Crown Pub has a lot of character and the food was really tasty.

    I think some money needs to be spent updating the decor of the hotel and rooms. The room rate is inexpensive and hotel is in a good location but it is looking a bit worn. There was a crack in the top corner of room near the front window of our room and given the connection of the hotel with Charles Dickens, the hotel undersells itself. There was also loud music coming from the bar downstairs in same hotel complex.

    Rochester is great The Royal Victoria and Bull Hotel is not somewhere anyone should trust to stay. Where was the staff? Why was the gates locked? Why was there not a message on the gate or at reception? How is this hotel allowed to remain in relation to health and safetytt?

    Different places and things appeal to different people. OK.

    Different places and things appeal to different people. OK. But I'm more than happy to put in a word for Rochester, It was, until 1998 when "Medway" (population 250,000 was created from Rochester, Chatham, Strood, Gillingham and Rainham, all today more or less contiguous) a historic and important small City. Now Rochester is just a "Town", which seems frankly ludicrous. Population only 60,000 and they have problems. The High Street includes far too many Charity Shops, although also some beautiful and historic buildings. Too close to London. But Rochester also has the second oldest Cathedral in England, and still largely Norman Architecture rather than Canterbury's huge late Gothic. Rochester also boasts the tallest and best preserved Norman castle keep in both England and France. Then there are all the links with Charles Dickens and much else besides. And then the Chatham Historic Dockyard, worth a day's time of anyone interested in British history and only a few miles from Rochester. I note the 2021 Lonely Planet Great Britain (page 162) manages just over 2 column inches on Chatham Dockyard. And that's it. Not even a mention of Rochester or "Medway" in the index. That, in my book, is all you need to know about "Guide Books"!

    The historic High Street is a short walk from the train station. The pavements and road on the High Street can be uneven, with cobbles in places , which adds to the charm. Favorite places to eat-in are: The Quills (offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails), Padrino's Pizzeria (eat in & takeaway/delivery), Cathedral Pie (offering traditional pie and mash with parsley sauce/gravy, jellied eels), Pizza Express and there are also tapas, Japanese, fish and chips and a variety of cafes and bars. The Cathedral, Castle and local museums are always interesting, with local events going on.

    We used Rochester as a meeting point for family members who had not been able to meet together for many, many years. Rochester had a lovely historical atmosphere and we were easily able to find places to eat together and to amble around the sites including the cathedral, castle and museums and visitor centre which had a great display of the flying boats built here in the past. Pity more is not made of that, on the original site which is now a housing estate. (Perhaps the road names should have been those of the boats???) Charles Dickens, a local name, was of secondary interest to our group.

    This is the second stay we have had at this lovely old hotel and it was still as good as the first. It may be an old hotel but the room was very clean, spacious, comfortable and very good value for money. The receptionist is a very friendly, welcoming and helpful lady. The hotel is ideally situated in the middle of the old Rochester with plenty of restaurants to choose from and things of interest to see right on the doorstep. If you want to view Rochester, this is the hotel to come to.

    The location was beautiful. Set in the countryside with immaculate garden, plenty of room to park and the barn has been lovingly renovated with tasteful decor and furnishings. The owners were friendly and accommodating with great suggestions of places to eat and visit. The breakfast selection was varied, nicely presented and more importantly delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return when we visit family in Kent again.

    What a wonderful experience! Truly unique piece of British Maritime history, with fascinating story. Our room enjoyed serene views across the Medway down to Rochester. Breakfast was simple but just what was needed. Inner Dowsing Lightvessel is managed by a lovely couple who could not have been more friendly and helpful. Thank you!
