“Better than expected !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Very clean and welcoming, stayed along with family and proved ideal. Tried other local places to eat then used the in house restaurant on the last night, wish we had tried it earlier, food was excellent and only a little more expensive.

Good sized, well decorated modern room with very comfortable bed and well thought out clothes storage. Very nice bathroom, plenty of hot water and enough space on shelves to put own toiletries. Near motorway but no noise from outside. Lovely clean hotel with helpful staff.

We recently stayed at the Premier Inn, Rochester. This was our 4th time back! The staff we met were friendly and the room was up to the usual great standard.
On previous occasions we had been given a room facing the railway line at the back of the hotel but this time had one which faced the river. We thought this was better and would also perhaps be more suitable for longer staying customers.
Noise levels have never been an issue at the hotel even the railway line was not a problem.
We did walk from Stood station which is about a 35min walk away so travellers should be aware that if you do not have a car the nearest station is not just round the corner. There is a bus from Rochester/Stood but they are not frequent. Taxis are also available. There are a number of supermarkets in Strood town centre but nothing within the area of the Premier Inn. However, there are a couple of pubs/restaurants opposite along with a cinema, bowling alley and McDonalds. There is also a nice bar in the hotel itself.
All in all a very nice Premier Inn that we shall certainly continue to use.

Took advantage of Special offers to book 2 nights to visit Chatham Historic Dockyard and found the Rochester Premier Inn to be up to the standards we have found at many of there Hotels. The room was the normal layout very clean and comfortable.Had 2 perfect nights sleep including Bonfire Night. Top marks again to Premier!!

Room Tip: The River facing rooms have a good view

Stayed her for three nights last week. Second time we have stayed here. Once again staff are helpful and friendly. Really impressive Premier Inn hotel and would stay again. Off the beaten track a little but lots to do on site. Cinema, bowling, bingo, four restaurants. Nice bar and restaurant in the hotel itself. Good breakfast but is buffet style which is always a bit of a lottery as one morning had to wait ages for the bacon and eggs to be topped up. The tv in the room would not go any higher than 25 voulme. I imagine that there may have been complaints in the past from guests saying tv was too loud in other rooms so they have restricted the volume control. However 25 was too low. My wife and I could not hear the tv properly and it really wasn't worth watching anything as you could hardly hear it! I would suggest that the volume needs to be restricted to 30 - 35 which still would not disturb other guests but would be loud enough to be able to hear it properly!

Whilst visiting Diggerland we stayed at Premier inn Rochester. It was ideal location for the attraction being only 5 mins away.

The hotel was good and fit for purpose. Good restaurant, coffee and bar lounge, above average size room.

Family room located on the ground floor was comfortable and adequately equipped. Spare pillows, tea and coffee making facilities were included. The bathroom was basic but again ok for one night.

Spare pillows and towels were only included for the adults. No towel or extra pillow for my son. I guess these would have been provided had we asked.

Premier Inn use a great night sleep as their sales pitch but sadly my night sleep was not so good. Children running along the corridor, guests in the room above, and inadequate 'blackout' lining at the windows resulted in a disturbed night and early wake up.

Despite the lack of sleep I would give this hotel another try if in the area. The price was excellent - £29 for fami room.

Always maintains a good standard of the above as we have experienced from all premier inns which we have stayed at. Good choice of restaurAnts near by as well as cinema and gym. Staff polite and helpful. Would recommend if you need a place to stay with reasonable tariffs.
