Orchard Cottage
Ranked #3 of 17 Rochester B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 January 2014

We stayed at the Orchard B&B the night before our sons wedding, in fact we booked the whole place, all five rooms for family and friends. Our stay was fantastic, Kevin and Sue made us all feel so welcome, nothing was too much trouble for them, we literally took over the whole place !
Whether you are staying just one night or more, I would recommend the Orchard B&B, it is excellent.

What can I say? We were made to feel welcome the moment we arrived and this set the trend for the rest of our 8-night stay. Our room was ultra comfortable and clean, well appointed with a wonderfully luxurious bed and our every need was catered for. We had the use of a well equipped kitchen for tea-making, take-aways, and the fridge was always stocked with soft drinks etc. Kevin and Sue are an absolute delight and nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfasts were sublime with such a vast choice - cereals, fruits, juices, yoghurts, pastries and of course THE full English cooked to perfection to specification. We shall definitely be back - really can't recommend The Orchard too highly.

We stayed at Orchard to see the Rochester Dickensian weekend which was great! We had the warmest of greetings from Keith and Sue on arrival. The facilities were superb, we had a great en-suite room and the use of a separate kitchen so we could eat a take away if we didn't want to eat out. The kitchen also had a wide range of drinks available for our use and even a bowl of Quality Street! Keith and Sue were really helpful in planning where to visit during our stay and their parking tips for Rochester saved us hours of queuing! The breakfast was fantastic, all freshly cooked, an English breakfast to be proud of. My wife had some lovely pancakes but I couldn't be lured away from my fry up.
The best B&B I've stayed at by a long way. Hope we can find an excuse to visit the area again!

When we arrived we had a warm greeting with a tour of the property, a cup of tea & info on the cooked breakfast the next day!
The rooms were all comfortable with lovely shower rooms.
We were given the option of a lift to and from the wedding we were attending which was perfect.
We felt like we were in very safe hands of a very friendly host and hostess which actually felt more like we were staying with family!
Good for friends, couples, family...anyone!

Kevin and Sue were very welcoming and more than willing to accommodate. Very comfortable, tastefully modern and clean. Fantastic breakfast! The local area is a must see with beautiful surroundings. Looking forward to my next stay at Orchard Cottage

We stayed here for just one night and the place is wonderful, great attention to detail and the lady and gentleman running the business were very friendly and made us feel super welcome. Everything about the place was fantastic and as you can see from the reviews it's a real gem. If you're in the area and need a place to stay this is it. I've stayed in many different places and this one really stands out.

A big thank you to the owners for my lovely breakfast and thank you for the comfy stay.

Book with confidence it's fantastic.

Perfect location for our pre wedding stay. Kevin and Sue were so hospitable and welcoming. Tea and scones were a great start to our stay. Rooms were perfect and everything you could possibly need was to hand.
Kevin and Sue couldn't do enough for us, from helping us in with our luggage to clearing a space on the morning of the wedding to have hair and make up done.
If you have a wedding at Cooling Castle Barn this is the place for you. If you're just touring the area you couldn't find a better place to stay and great value for money.
Thank you Kevin and Sue.
