Sunday Lunch over looking the Thames with attentive, friendly staff and very reasonable prices.

The sirloin was a generous portion, delicious and tender, served with jus rather than gravy, seasonal veg and a large, light Yorkshire pud...

I would highly this family friendly hotel as a drop in for a great meal and pleasant environment with stunning views and great staff (Dan, Josh and Shannon).

Booked for a Christening weeks ago, was told discounted rate for guests of £70. Went to book and was told due to party size needed to pay £145and would be put in honeymoon room, fine went with that. Now 24hrs before arrival just been informed that we cancelled our room a week ago. I think not!!! Hotel obviously over booked. Very Poor Management!!

We spent this weekend at the hotel as a wedding party with a reception at the gravesend old town hall which is in walking distance. We were treated very well and any special request was accommodated. There were a couple of small problems but they were dealt with immediately by a keen and helpful staff. Rooms were good and clean.

How wonderful Shannon is. Thoughtful, beautiful, helpful and very good with her guest service. Well done Shannon. A credit to you and the management there.

If you are not the manager then you should be as you were amazing and we all loved you today. The whole place was you. You are the rainbow of Gravesend :)

The rooms are super, bed extremely comfortable and well appointed room, the bar is very nice and comfortable. Unfortunately the hotel had changed hands since we made the booking so we did not get the three course meal in the evening that we had expected. But if we stayed again we would do a bed and breakfast . The bar meal was very tasty but not what we had expected as an anniversary dinner. The staff were very good and very helpful and polite so we did enjoy the break after we got over the initial shock of no dinner the first night but we did find a lovely pub not far away.

Room Tip: we had a river view , you could hear the boats going along the Thames which did not bother us at all...
