Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ENMH4 Excellent welcome and top class service
After our recent holiday we decided to stay at the Holiday Inn Rochester as we have done many times before. The experience was fantastic with friendly staff who are prepared to go the extra mile, great rooms, super pool area, delicious food and a cracking breakfast the following day. We have stayed in many hotels as we travel the country on a regular basis but this hotel is definitely superior to any other.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ian28 Comfortable hotel
A comfortable hotel situated ideally. Road can be noisy at night if you have a room overlooking the road. Also, smoking outside the hotel is an issue.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JenAndThomas Booked a room on Holiday Inn website but full when we arrived to check in
I booked a room at the hotel and had confirmation it was booked. My husband and two young children arrived to be told despite booking the hotel was full and we couldn't stay. We spent nearly an hour very late at night with one tired and one sleeping child whilst staff went and checked thing and made phone calls but the conclusion was there wasn't a room at the hotel despite booking. The hotel staff were far from polite, some of the comments were, I quote "everyone is unhappy tonight", "there is nothing we can do we don't have a room" to which I was most unhappy and ask the member of staff to call another hotel as where were we supposed to sleep for the night. I had always thought if you booked a room it meant it was reserved for you but clearly not. The hotel staff did say there system had been down for 3 days and they had no idea who what was going on but I don't feel this was acceptable.

Due to all aspects of hotel running being computer driven, when the IT stops working, so does everything else! I stay at this particular hotel around ten days a month and this usually wonderful hotel crashed and burned...... it was only the dedication of the staff that kept her afloat!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 First Class Stay Again
We have stayed at the Rochester - Chatham hotel on many occasions over the years. As always the reception staff greet us with enthusiasm and make you feel like family members they have not seen for a while. Always friendly and helpful. The quality of the room was exceptional and most importantly we always get a comfortable nights stay. As an IHG member we get that special touch all the time. Well done. Mr

We enjoyed a relaxing two night break at this hotel. Staff were very helpful, friendly and the room was clean and in very good order. The swimming pool was warm and a lovely place to relax. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious and the restaurant staff were very helpful and friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Valvic10 A pleasant, comfortable and friendly place to stay.
We use this hotel 2-3 times a year as a base for visiting family in Kent. For us this works really well and
as a bonus, our 12 year old grandson who accompanies us from Cornwall enjoys the swimming pool when we return to base in the evening.
The breakfast is good and great value, served by friendly staff. The rooms with fridge and a TV are clean and comfortable serviced by an efficient and pleasant staff.
We would recommend Holiday Inn both here and in other locations we have visited.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by glass half full red Night in Chatham
Stayed overnight for a business meeting the next day. At check-in it was quite busy with a queue forming as I arrived at 3 in the afternoon. Had a problem with my rewards account, which the lady at check-in was very patient with but unable to resolve, which would have meant no internet, however she worked around that problem. Room was very comfortable, and mostly clean, except the mugs and spoons, which were clearly not cleaned or replaced. The hotel has a swimming pool (didn't use) and nice restaurant, and is very well decorated with comfortable surrounds. Not a cheap hotel, which charges for internet unless you are a rewards member, and over £12 for breakfast. Overall, quite a nice hotel but seriously overpriced
