We booked the hotel without reading any of the reviews and after reading the reviews I was tempted to cancel our reservation. We only needed to stay there for one nightso we decided to give it a try and I really don't see what all the negative reviews are about. It's a 2 star hotel so people cannot expect too much! The location of the hotel is beyond perfect; it is opposite the cathedral and right on the high street. We had asked for a family room with 3 beds and instead they provided us with a room with 5 beds split over 2 rooms, it was like out very own appartment so that was a great surprise! Staff were extremly friendly and no the breakfast isn't great but it will keep you going until lunch! If you don't fancy the breakfast provided by the hotel there are many cafs and bakery's along the high street!
If I have to return to Rochester, I will defintly be staying here again. We paid 85£ for 3 people for one night which I think is a bargain! NOT dirty but is in need of refurbishment.
