    Sorry, I can't anything positive to write about the hotel and the service it provided.

    The location of the hotel was ok, but it awkward to get to because of the one way system. Only one bath towel was left in the room for two people. Even after the reception was informed of this problem, no action was taken to resolve it.

    Comfort of the bed was good, food excellent (worth going just for the food if nothing else)

    When booking the hotel I wasnt made aware the room I was booking was a smoking room, consequently there were no non smoking ones avail when I arrived 30 mins after booking, my asthma was playing up in the morning due to the lingering smells.

    Great Breakfast!

    Would liked to have seen Soap and Flannel in room (rather than ask at Reception for complimentary supplies.

    Excellent Hotel, although it was very busy, no noise whatsoever at night,the breakfast was also very good and unlike so other hotels hot.

    You can be woken up by executive jets and helicopters in the morning, as it is next door to Rochester airport, although we found it very interesting.

    Staff very attentive, polite and I felt like they wanted my business

    The staff particularly at the restaurant were genuinely friendly.

    The room was very far from the hub of the hotel. The bath was unclean. The mirror was cracked and the front door to the room looked like it had been forced by a crow bar. The food was not great. Poorly cooked steak.

  • Older travelers

    Very happy with our stay staff very friendly and room very comfortable and clean. Pool and gym great. Only thumbs down are the chairs in dinning room very uncomforable just about managed to sit in them for a quick breakfast but would not have had dinner there. Real shame 'cos food looked good.

  • Family with children

    It was nice to have a fridge in the room in which to keep cool drinks. Room service was prompt, and pleasant enough. Breakfast was excellent for both choice and presentation of the buffet. Lovely sausages, always a good sign, although the black pudding was a little dried out. The restaurant manageress was wonderful with the child guests, despite a slightly forbidding appearance, she treated both my daughter and another little with great charm and made them feel special. Definitely a good move towards giving a good lasting impression to possible future adult guests!

    The basin was cracked and damaged. The quilt cover on one bed had yellow stains on it! I have stayed frequently in Holiday Inn Expresses which I thought were supposedly a step down from the Holiday Inn proper, but not in this case. The room was a little too hot. However we did discover that the window could be opened fully. Whilst high prices are to be expected, my daughters jelly which came served in it's original Hartley's jelly pot gave away a 300% mark up on the product.

    Only stayed overnight but room was clean and very comfortable

    Would have ordered breakfast for Sunday morning but too expensive at £10.50 per person

    the bar priced were too steap. i went out of the hotel to the pub over the road. its a shame,that was the only thing that put us 3 off. we will return looking forward too any discounts coming soon.

    Can't remember if when I booked it was pointed out the restaurant would be closed during my stay (except for breakfast)?

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Friendly atmosphere and access to the swimming pool and leisure club. Close to town, motorway and countryside.

    Not able to connect to the internet because of the high price, rooms noisy at times because of sounds from adjacent rooms.
