Two Night Break at Ramada Encore Chatham
Ramada Encore at Chatham Historic Dockyard, Kent
The hotel may not have a great look from the outside but inside it's clean and well kept. The room was basic but clean and tidy with ensuite toilet, basin and small wetroom with power shower and the bed was quite comfy. We were in Room 504 and, although on the 5th floor, it was right opposite the two lifts, which was handy. There was traffic noise from the nearby main road but, with the windows closed, we couldn't hear a thing and the aircon was great (it was very hot during our visit). We had a view across the car park and Mast Pond and, to the right, could see the Medway River. We were so close to the Historic Dockyard that we could see the entrance door and some of the buildings. The Dockyard Experience was great. We went on 3 vessels, a destroyer, a submarine and an older ship with all the rigging. The Victorian Ropery tour doesn't sound interesting but was actually very entertaining and, for me, was the best part. With the hotel being so close we didn't need to drive there, just walk across two car parks. We are so grateful for our daughter and son-in-law giving us the Buyagift two-night break voucher for our 48th wedding anniversary. Breakfast at the hotel was included so that was a bonus. All in all a very good experience. Thanks Buyagift.
