Conveniently situated in the heart of Medway, Kent and surrounded by Maritime history, The King Charles Hotel in Gillingham is a family-run, independent 3 star hotel that prides itself on being welcoming, friendly, affordable and flexible towards our diverse range of customers. Our staff and management have over 35 years of experience in the independent hospitality industry which has been built upon, year by year, since we first opened our doors in 1980.

From coach holiday groups to continental stop-overs, weddings to corporate functions, our team is on hand to offer an exceptionally accommodating and personal service that remains bespoke to you and your stay here. Because we are an independent hotel, we recognise that everyone has different needs and expectations when staying away from home, so we always strive to ensure that your stay is exactly how you desire it to be.

We are framed by Chatham and Gillingham town centres, and are just a short drive from the Gillingham Business Park, the Medway City Estate and Strood and Rochester. With excellent transport links to London, Ebbsfleet International and the Channel Ports via the M2, M20 and M25 motorways. We are also an ideal
base to explore Kent, the South East of England and even France.

Sites of interest in our immediate area are Chatham Historic Dockyard, The Royal Engineers Museum, Fort Amherst and Rochester, Castle and Cathedral which are all just minutes away.

For those wishing to explore further, London is just 30 miles away. Bluewater Shopping Centre, Lakeside Shopping Centre, Leeds Castle, Maidstone and Canterbury are all a short drive away.

If you prefer to leave your car behind, Gillingham (Kent) railway station is a 10 minutes walk. Trains from here go straight to Ebbsfleet International, London Victoria, Charing Cross, King's Cross St Pancras International as well as Canterbury, Dover, Folkestone and the South East coast.

The hotel makes an ideal stop over for coaches heading to and from Europe and we offer excellent rates for groups.

Love Marriage
The King Charles Hotel has over 30 years experience in the planning, organisation and running of wedding receptions. Both staff and management will be delighted to be part of your day, giving you help and advice on every aspect.

With two rooms and our outdoor garden gazebo licensed for the solemnisation of weddings, we can offer you a small informal service in our Trafalgar Room or a larger more grand affair in our Cavalier Suite. The maximum number of guests depends on your chosen room - we can hold up to 200 guests in our Cavalier Suite and 50 guests in our Trafalgar Room.

The ceremony is conducted and organised by a registrar from Medway Register Office but we make the initial booking or enquiry on your behalf.

Civil ceremonies can be very simple and pleasant but there are many 'extra' things you can add to make it a truly memorable and personal day. Many people find having the wedding ceremony, reception and accommodation in the same building a very relaxing and enjoyable experience - also cutting down on travel costs/time and minimising weather worries.

Several of our rooms are available for either a sit down and evening wedding reception or a more simple evening finger buffet. For further details regarding our banqueting or function rooms, please complete the enquiry form.
