Dirvers, as you head down the road into Sittingbourne, keep a sharp look out on the left for the entrance to the car park. If you reach the Shell garage, you've gone too far by about 50 yards or so.
There's ample parking at this place and the hotel itself is very modern looking from the outside and on the inside.
The reception staff were very friendly and soon had me on my way to my room.
The room itself was one of the best I have stayed in while I have been travelling over the last 2 years with work. Spacious, well kitted out (including mood lighting and electric black out blinds for those that want that kind of thing), with a very modern bathroom and a really good shower. Enough said about the room. Couldn't fault it. I even got an Easter Egg as I arrived on Easter Monday.
Young Jon working down in the bar deserves a special mention as being exceptionally polite, friendly and professional. The bar itself, in keeping with the rest of the hotel was clean and modern and wasn't overpriced either (for a hotel) with a pint of Stella coming in at £3.85. I also had a good chilli burger in the bar which was also reasonably priced.
Sittingbourne is only a 15 minute walk away however, with the mandatory Wetherspoons serving very good beer and a more than passable steak for much less.
Breakfast was really good with a good selection of good quality food and very friendly staff in the restaurant
All in all, if this place had had a gym or a pool, this would have been a 5 star rating from me and that's the only thing marking it down. Everything else was faultless, including the mandatory free wi-fi which you always get with a Best Western, and should I be back in the Sittingbourne area again, I will definitely be staying at the Coniston.
