We stayed here to attend a 40th birthday party in one of the hotel's function rooms. The room was clean, nicely furnished and comfortable. The bathroom was large well appointed and with a fully functioning shower. Our room was upstairs at the end of a corridor way from staircase and other rooms so it was nice and quiet. The staff...

We booked his hotel so that we could visit Rochester Dickensian Christmas. It was 2 bus rides away but this was very easy to do. The room was very nice but only a double bed, we are used to a king, and room was very hot but we were able to turn heating down. My only 'complaint' is that the...

Recommended by other service persons, we arrived at the Hotel late. First we had problems with the Parking and lack of a space for the unloading of our cases in the rain. After a bad journey, we really needed this. The blue badge spaces had vans parked in them, the following day I was approached by a youth about parking...

Thank you for your recent review of the King Charles Hotel I am sorry that there were other guests parking in the blue badge spaces. We do monitor this as best we can, but unfortunately there are some inconsiderate people around. As soon as we find out that another guest has parked in one of those spaces without a blue...

I stayed here with my friend and two dogs to attend a seminar in Chatham. The hotel is ideally located for having dogs with you. There is a huge grass area opposite which is perfect. There's a leisure centre right next door to. Our room was nice, however for November it was boiling, we had the radiator off and had...

I stayed here with my boyfriend and we paid only 35 pounds for the room. It was well worth the money as the room was clean and cosy. The bed was comfortable and the pine (wood) furniture gave the room a homely feel. The tv was very small with bothered my boyfriend but I didn't mind! The bathroom seemed to...

Thank you for your recent review of the King Charles Hotel We think that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and our complimentary Breakfast is always cooked fresh to order, rather than warm and hard on a buffet bar!

Thank you for your recent review of the King Charles Hotel All of our rooms have individually controlled radiators in the rooms, so I am not sure why you did not have heating in your room. We have an energy management system that keeps the hotel at a constant temperature, and still allows for the room temperature to be adjusted...

Thankfully I had to stay at this hotel for business reasons and not pleasure. Before I start this review I would like it to be known that I stay in hotel 4/5 nights per week, every week, throughout the year, so I know a little about hotels. The hotel is very dated and in need of a refurbishment. My room...
