The owner is OK and the lady he employs to clean the rooms is wonderful and should have a pay rise! My room had excellent views. That is all I can say that is positive, unfortunately. The office area is incredibly messy, I was not helped with my luggage, the TV did not work (the owner could not fix it,...

The actual room was basic but ok, whether it was worth £49 is open to question, I've recently stayed in Peckham, London for £36 and that was much better. The heating was switched off, there was no hot water in the shower even though I left it running for 15 minutes. We left a note telling them about it but...

Stayed here for 5 nights from 15 Jan 2012 whilst on a training course from work. As the title suggests, the room was very basic but clean - all that was needed for getting your head down after a busy day. Breakfast was also very basic - help yourself to cereals, fruit juice, toast and tea/coffee but fine by me...

I made the mistake of saving £20 by booking for a family visit. It really does seem to be a 1980's care home that one night shut down and opened up next morning as a B&B. All a bit tired and creepy, the nearest I can liken it to was the old budget rooms in the now shut Butlins hotel...

Definitely the worse accommodation I have ever stayed in. The room was awful, the food was awful. The manager was strange. It was as a previous reviewer stated like the worse kind of old people's home. Never again. Do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else.

My partner and I decided to go to a nice little town for a weekend at last minute and Rochester seemed to fit the bill (which it did). Upon our Arrival we were met by the manager outside ( as it is not lived in by owners, and not staffed other than when checking guests in and being cleaned) and...

Should have realised that if they had rooms when all others were full, there must have been a reason. Manager extremely helpful on the phone. Said we could have our rooms at 15.00 but when we arrived at 18.00, our room had still not been made up. Breakfast things had not been cleared from that morning. Rooms were adequate, though...

Having searched for a room at very short notice on a budget this B&B exceeded our expectations wonderfully. The manager was very helpful and courteous, and even let us have the larger (1 double, 2 single beds) family room (downstairs, adjacent to communal kitchen, with large window and clear glass patio door with access to terrace) at the same rate...

Was on a recent business trip to Rochester from N. Ireland. Searched the internet for accomodation and came across Riverview Lodge. On arrival was met by the proprietor whom I found to be a very pleasent and helpful man. The room itself was clean and comfortable with an ensuite shower and TV. Views of the river especially at sunset were...
