We both really enjoyed our stay at the Ship & Trades (brewery hotel). Room 1 was clean and comfortable. The breakfast is taken in the restaurant with great views across the marina. The breakfast was really tasty with the thick bacon slices and a scrumptious sausage.
Staff were attentive. The bar is trendy and the popular. Nearby is the historic dockyard. Great spot.
Family in Rochester, wanted to stay close but not under their feet, 3 of us (one nearly 90 years old) found everything we needed at Bridgewood Manor - no stairs to reach our rooms, good breakfast buffet, friendly staff, and the swimming pool was the icing on the cake.
I was attending a course nearby in Rochester for the week. My partner booked my accommodation as the ones I was looking at were absolutely awful. I arrived the Sunday night pleasantly surprised. A nice traditional pub with rooms. Being a non local, I was still made to feel very comfortable. The landlord promised me a lovely breakfast in the morning, he was not lying!
We have stayed in this hotel about 10 times and it never disappoints. Excellent value for money bearing in mind that it's only 2 miles from the town. Price included full English breakfast plus full use of the gym,pool etc. There's a really nice river side walk to maidstone which takes about 30-40 minutes.
We were very pleased with the Best Western Manor Hotel. I visited many times different kind of hotels, also worked for a while in a 5 star hotel, but comparing with my overall experiences that was the best hotel so far. I have many reasons to say this, first of all the reception staff was very helpful and kind to us. We arrived quite late there, our room was very clean and well provided with everything, I felt home and I had the best sleep in this year because was very quiet and comfy (room, bed, good atmosphere). We got everything what we requested and some extras as well.
The main reason why we definitely recommend the hotel, because we made a fatal mistake on our behalf did not bring British pound with us and just realised one day before our trip back to home we don't have money to hire a taxi to get to the train station. It was a very stressful situation because that happened in the middle of the night and we worried about that won't be able to get the train in time back to London to reach our bus, so the night porter/shift leader exchanged the money for us to help out from that terrible situation otherwise we couldn't travel back in time. Unfortunately we don't know his name but we want to say a big thank you for him and for the whole hotel staff who kept tidy our room and cheered up our stay. Thank you very much. I hope we will have the chance to go back to visit the Hotel and the beautiful and friendly Gravesend again.
