Good location for wedding we attended two doors down. Stairwell/corridor absolutely dire. Luckily room had recently been refurbished so was slightly better, however, needed a good clean and not even sure if sheets has been laundered prior to our stay as there were small hairs on them!!! Curtains only covered half of the window so woke up with sun in our eyes at 5am...

The turd that came to visit q
Arrived to find green water in the toilet .....cleaning solution you may reasonably expect, however , brown sludge at the bottom of the toilet indicated another culprit, confirmed by flushing of the toilet - it was in fact a fungating turd .....fabulous !

Convenient location for Rochester high street. Rooms are directly over the pub so noise to be expected. Lovely friendly staff and unique Dickens themed decor.

Very Much a mixed bag!
This hotel was part good and part poor. The staff were very friendly but the accommodation was variable. Room 11 was fine, well equipped but without any tea cups or mugs? Room 9 was very basic and need urgent refurbishment. The staircase was very dark and uninviting. All in all it is about ensuring you get a refurbished room
