Ignore some of the negative reviews that are around for this hotel. Yes, it is tired in places, but is undergoing a refurb. Rooms are clean, big and comfortable. Wifi is free and works well. Breakfast was very good. a well stocked cereal and fruit table with porridge and a good choice of freshly cooked hot food. The bar food...

Went to a charity night at this hotel and stayed the night. Nice comfortable clean rooms and nice friendly staff, Nice breakfast too. Very pleased with everything. Would have liked to have a better walk around the grounds and lake but ran out of time.

Visited here recently with my other half and we were impressed. The room was £52 and it was lovely. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast in the morning was plentiful. Would 100% recommend and we will be returning soon!

The room is very clean and spacious. The toilet/bathroom may be slightly dated but still very clean. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is good with a continental buffet and in addition a made to order cooked breakfast. Location - wise it is 10mins drive from Rochester or Bluewater, and 20 mins from Chatham, can't really fault the location....

Helpful staff, decent sized room and comfortable bed. Nice cooked breakfast in the morning. Room was a mishmash of different furniture but other than that, for the price, it was ok. Didn't eat in that evening so can't comment on that

Yes, the general decor is badly in need of updating but our room was large and clean with a lovely view of the lake. Comfy beds and very good cooked breakfast. Toaster needs updating as had to put bread through three times before it was toasted. Excellent value for money though and convenient for a night's stop over. Must say...

Our cousins family hired out this venue for their parents Golden wedding anniversary. The hall had plenty of space despite there being so many guests and the food was of good quality. We had a family room for 5 on the 2nd floor. It cost us £120 including breakfast which we thought was really good value. The main room was...

We have just returned from a fabulous family weekend and a family party at the Inn on the Lake. The venue was perfect for the party, lots of space, good facilities (including good wheelchair access), plenty of parking and a good dance floor. Our room was a really nice size over looking the lake. The hotel is being refurbished currently...
