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.

Hotel and service were excellent. Room was clean, tidy and very comfortable! The bar and restaurant were lovely and the food was good

Lovely welcome, nicely decorated, clean rooms, lovely room staff too. Great breakfast with good variety. My only small picky gripe is I would have liked a really nice coffee or cappuccino and nine of us could eat the weird tasting sausages but had forgotten that until this survey!
