Ship & Trades, Chatham
Very Good8.0
A Toasty Gem Outside of the City
The staff is absolutely wonderful and pleasant. The surrounding area, particularly the marina, is such a relaxing environment. I loved it here, and I will stay, again. However, please be advised, there is no central cooling system. I was frantically searching for the thermostat (I'm American), so I could drop the temp down to a comfortable level. My search was in vain. I was informed that the building is historic and a central air system cannot be installed. Nevertheless, there were several fans in the room and I survived during an unusually hot and steamy few days in London. Great hotel, great breakfast. So glad I found it.

OK but !!!!!.
Could do with a bit of renovation, bathroom & shower needs a rethink. Paper thin walls and secondary double glazing, not very good. Very small TV. Food in the bar was good quality but expensive. Pleased I didn't have to pay for the room, free from Hotels,com.

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.
