Nice place by the Dock

Pros: Nice room
Noisy room due to some kind of fan or continues running motor outside, since I'm a light sleeper didn't get much sleep. Thats the only downside.

Handy for Chatham

Pros: Unusual fittings. Close to Chatham Dockyard.
Cons: Continual noise from fittings, staff, smokers outside.
Location: Free parking at Chatham Dockyard so a quick drive from hotel. Not far from Rochester Castle and Cathedral too. Both well worth a visit.
Hotel and staff good. Rooms well-equipped. Food mainly good. Clean hotel. Parking free and opposite. Good views. Co-op next door useful. Noise is a problem with room 10. Next to staff store room so continual banging of door. Staff start work shortly after 6am so no chance of much sleep. Near to kitchen staff door too so again frequent swinging of door. When washer is spinning next door the whole room vibrates and lights swing!! Fans running outside until early hours and start again very early. So unless you are a heavy sleeper or get a different room way away from room 10 do not expect to get much rest!
