The room was well presented and a great size, more like an apartment! All the staff in the hotel were incredibly friendly and helpful. The drinks and cocktails at the bar were well made and great. The dinner and breakfast in the restaurant was also very good. My only comment for improvement would be, despite the more senior staff being...

We were really impressed with the location of the hotel, overlooking the river Thames, with the barges and boats passing by. The reception and bar staff were really friendly and helpful, and we were delighted to have been upgraded to the Henry v111 Suite as it was a special celebration. The lounge had lots of comfy chairs where you could...

Stayed in the Ionia suite. Lovely views, staff friendly and good food. We go down to Gravesend from Durham (NE England) as my mam was born down there. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and will be returning next year.

I booked the hotel for one night including breakfast for £59 for a standard room via secretrooms.com . I got a confirmation very quickly from the Claredon. The hotel was about 10 mins walk from the train station and well placed alongside the river in a quiet part of town. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The immediate area...

We really enjoyed our stay as a family of five in the Ionia suite. Lovely clean rooms with a view of the Thames, it was a real home from home. The breakfast were very tasty and all needs were accommodated from fussy toddlers to vegans. Staff were very pleasant and friendly. Can't fault the place

Staff lovely we had the pork belly which was nice apart from the crackling which was like eating a pot of salt😩 Nice view of the Thames with boats passing by. You can buy drinks and sit on the lawn in front of the hotel.

We booked afternoon tea for a friends 70th birthday last weekend and although the service was good to begin with, it diminished once two large parties of people arrived. It took us over half an hour to get our drinks replenished with three requests to the staff - obvious lack of staff. With regard to the food and bearing in...
