Hotels in Gillingham or Medway (or near) in Kent

Found 5th Nov 2010
Have a private medical appt in Medway Maratime Hospital in Kent. We are going up the night before.Have looked at a few hotels in these areas. Just wondering if there is another area of Kent, not too far away with a bit more going on.We do have the car so can stay a few miles out. Thanks in advance.xx

Gemmy...well, there are a couple of obvious places - dunno if this is the kind of thing you're looking for. About 25 minutes to the West you've got Bluewater - a big old shopping centre with a cinema and a growing number of lovely restaurants...there's a Travelodge just round the corner from that. About 30 minutes to the east you've got Whitstable - a harbour town with farmers markets, fish markets, loads of quaint independent shops and a ton of great restaurants. Just last weekend I stayed in a B&B in Herne Bay, which is about 5 minutes away from Whitstable. 75 notes for a deluxe double room with sea view and full English the next morning...fab! Herne Bay is a bit quiet though...

Is that the kind of 'more going on' you were after?

There a Ramada hotel in Chatham,fair bit to do in Chatham.

On the hotel sites under their hotel information it should say if they got onsite parking.
