“Good accommodation friendly and helpful staff and good restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2010

We have been staying at the St George Hotel on a regular basis for the last few years and have always found the staff very welcoming and accommodating. We have found that the rooms are all good, but particularly the rear rooms which have a fantastic panoramic view of the river Medway. Rooms cleaned every day with fresh towels etc. The breakfasts are very good with choices which can be altered slightly to accommodate particular needs. The staff in the restaurant are friendly, helpful and efficient.

I've been staying here occasionally for business, and am pretty happy with the service provided (after trying the Holiday Inn and deciding i wasn't getting value-for-money).

I've been staying in one of the Superior rooms. I get a good-sized room with a great view over the river. It's clean, and the bathroom is pretty nice. My only gripe is that there is an open bathtub with a hand-held shower-head, and it's pretty-much impossible to shower in there without covering the floor with water. I'd love a shower-curtain in there so i wouldn't have to worry.

The TVs are large, modern and have dozens of chanels available (there's a DVD player available too). It beats the limited hotel-TV that most hotel chains will offer just so they can charge loads for movies. I couldn't get wi-fi in my room, but the free service in the bar is really useful.

The food is really top-notch and good value. The restaurant is nice, but was a bit too quiet and empty for my liking, so i've taken to eating in the bar area instead (which seems to offer the same menu as the restaurant anyway). Staff are helpful, and usually friendly. The location gives really easy access to Chatham and Rochester, and the place is ideal for business trips. I'll be coming back soon.

We got married on 13th Aug and held our wedding sit down meal and evening reception at the St George Hotel. Due to the rain we had to head to the hotel straight from the ceremony (an hour early) but that was no problem for the hotel at all and they made sure everyone was welcomed. The food was fabulous - all home cooked. The management and staff went out of their way to make us feel special and made sure that everything ran smoothly. There was a total of 60 of us, and about half of guests stayed in the hotel with us overnight.
Everyone was happy with their rooms, lovely and clean and again breakfast was great the next morning.
I would heartily recommend any couples considering a wedding reception or party in Chatham/Kent to consider the St George.

The hotel is pretty basic, but the rooms rate are also very affordable. Rooms are rather small, but do have TV with a large selection of channels. There's quite a bit of noise seeping trhough from adjoining rooms. There's WIFI in the ( tasteless ) lobbu. The breakfast is surprisingly good. Service is friendly overall. The location is quite good, between Chatham & Rochester, and close to the train station. There's a nice park in front of the hotel.

Many thanks for your review. Sorry the lobby not to your taste but it is being refurbished in 2011 and wifi should also be available free of charge through out the hotel soon.

Location: About 5 minutes walk from train station (at a reasonably brisk pace), on a main - but not overly busy -road so I felt quite safe getting there on foot even in the evening.

Reception: efficient and pleasant. Payment on checking in. No deposit required, simply paid for my stay on checking in. Nice selection of local tourist information leaflets.

Room: I had a single room on the 3rd floor (309 - easy for me to remember as K.309 is my favorite Mozart piano sonata but I digress). There is a speedy elevator that takes you right up there but the stairs are very manageable being only short flights, also the staircase & corridors are pleasant to walk through.

Room: very pleasant impression on entering. Fresh, clean, tidy, modern, & spacious enough. Furnishings are excellent. The furniture are excellent quality. Plenty of storage space. The carpet & soft furnishings are real nice. The bed was extremely comfortable & very cleanly made. The Philips wall mounted LCD tv screen was excellent with a clear, sharp picture. There was the usual tea & coffee tray, and the mini kettle was very clean (looked new, even, and a quality brand - Russell Hobbs).

The ensuite bathroom was a nice size & very clean. Toilet had a good strong flush. The shower was perfectly adequate & powerful enough; it is open plan with a shower curtain enclosure, which is no problem at all for me; the water did not - should not -get everywhere, in fact it was remarkably dry as the floor drained very efficiently.

My window had a nice view over the meandering river.

Breakfast: included in the room price. I opted for the full English breakfast, which I thought was cooked well & most satisfactory. I was also given a rack of toast slices which was plenty for me. The breakfast room & tables are very pleasant. The breakfast staff are best described as efficient.

Overall, I enjoyed my overnight stay and it is a place that I would be happy to stay for longer. I read the owner's comment in reply to a previous review that it is a 2 star hotel, but I would put it at 3 star standard easily. It certainly is as good or better than some 3 star-rated hotels that I've stayed. Trying to find a decent place to stay, especially in SE England where high demand means a lot of places don't make any effort, can be a bit of a minefield, but I can - based on my experience - heartily recommend the St George Hotel as a very decent place to stay at a very reasonable rate (£44 for my single room one night midweek stay). I would be very happy to stay there again next time I am in the Chatham/Rochester area.

We were made most welcome by the friendly staff, who were very professional in booking us in and showing us the amenities of the hotel. The room was very comfortable and clean with panoramic views over the Medway. We love our tea/coffee making facilities, which the room had. Evening meal was excellent quality and value, promptly serviced and piping hot. Breakfast was equally as good with friendly staff catering for all our needs. In a word brilliant and we will have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and will be using it again whenever we are in this part of the country.

From booking in to departure, the hotel provided a smooth and professional approach and service. In addition to very reasonable rates for the location the hotel provides an excellent complementary range of cooked breakfast's and if required can provide a pack lunch for guests upon request. Rooms are of a very good clean standard with on suit, TV and ample complementary tea/coffee making facilities.
Many rooms have views over the busy River Medway and Chatham Historical Naval Dock Yards with the added advantage being within a very short walk to Rochester and the home and museum of Charles Dickens.
In summary a hotel well worth considering.
