Fab pub with rooms
Fab restaurant and rooms. Great value for money and great service

Decent Hotel
Service at the front desk was extremely friendly and welcoming. Which is good, because the appearance of the reception is a bit down-trodden. The carpets throughout really need replacing. However, the room (minus the carpet) was fine. Chatham is a decent enough town in an area of England that maybe isn’t the most picturesque or exciting.

Highly Recommended
Excellent service from staff from the moment we arrived. We were able to check in early and found a clean comfortable room. Breakfast choice was good and Sophie who attended to us was great. We ate in the restaurant on the second night and the service from Amy was first class, with a bubbly personality and a good knowledge of the local area with useful tips. A great location with plenty of other places to eat and drink and we would highly recommend.

Excellent stay.
Hotel staff very pleasant welcoming and courteous, check in was quick and painless. The room was very clean and tastefully presented with lovely views of the marina. It was very well equipped with hairdryer fairly large LCD TV plenty of tea and coffee as well as shortbread biscuits. The bed was very comfortable plus very importantly although the rooms are above the bar there isn’t little noise. This is the second time we have stayed here and both times the experiance was wonderful. This is not the last time we will be staying here and can’t recom this hotel enough especially if you use the restaurant as well as the food is superb.

Ahoy there!
loved the hotel .Great room furnished on a nautical theme as you would expect. Very comfortable Top class for cleanliness. Breakfasts plentiful and very tasty. Also had dinner one evening - pichana steak to die for and great chips - scrumptious steak and ale pie. Starter of deep fried baby squid wow! Just not so keen on tandori prawns. Staff very efficient, friendly and attentive
