This is a great value hotel, our room was clean and bright, lovely comfortable bed and modern bathroom, it has everything you need without the silly little shampoo bottles etc. The lounge areas are very comfortable and relaxing, the garden areas are superb, and the food was truly outstanding, both at breakfast and dinner, but the best thing about this place is the staff, nothing was to much trouble, and they are truly the nicest most pleasant people I have met in any hotel. This is a really well run family hotel and is outstanding value for money, we stayed 3 nights but wished we could have stayed more! well done we will be back again. Frank N.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the running track, these are very quiet at night.

Excellent value & very friendly and efficient staff. What else can one say. Thoroughly recommended. Just the place to stay when visiting the Historic Dockyard at Chatham or indeed anywhere else in the locality.

To read that you found us ‘Excellent Value & Very Friendly’ is the best review we can receive. They are two of the most important values to us as an independent hotel, and it is good to know that we are achieving this.

The hotel offered good value for money. We found the bar snacks suited our mood so didn't use the restaurant. The breakfast was good with a good vegetarian selection. Friendly, pleasant staff made the stay even better.

The hotel coped admirably with the influx of a very large number of former naval people and their families for a major anniversary, which included a large dinner, attended by a number of VVIPs. The service was fast, efficient and friendly at all times, the catering of good quality and the rooms clean and comfortable. The function rooms were large, bright and comfortable There was ample parking space and all the normal services worked well. The hotel's efficiency and service made a huge contribution to the weekend and I would recommend it to anyone seeking to take a break or hold a function .

Stayed here whilst attending an event at Chatham Dockyard, a few minutes drive away. All the staff we encountered both whilst booking and at the hotel were charming, polite and friendly, even lending us Sellotape. Room was clean and had everything needed, for a budget hotel this is much better than many chain competitors and also much cheaper. Great to see somewhere with enough staff to give excellent service, not two people desperately running around. Breakfast was good, with lots of choice and essentially for us they could cater for a coeliac, and made this a simple request and not a big deal. They even provided gluten free bread. Drinks at the bar were reasonable too. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and will certainly be returning.

It is very important to us that we offer good value for money, and it is nice to read that you experienced that.
As an independent hotel we have more flexibility to cater for special diets, and I thank you for your recommendation.
