About the hotel
Boasting a stunning marina setting, the Ship and Trades is a unique place to eat, drink and stay. The contemporary bar, restaurant and hotel overlooks one of the yacht basins at the former Royal Naval Dockyard, with extensive waterfront seating offering panoramic views of the pleasure boats and across the River Medway to historic Upnor Castle. Visitors can also enjoy the view from inside the Ship and Trades’ wrap-around restaurant with floor to ceiling glazing overlooking the marina.
The 15-bedroom hotel also has a comfortable lounge area and two ‘snugs’ for more intimate gatherings. Its décor is inspired by its nautical heritage, as the structure was originally home to dockyard offices and an engineering shop in the late 19th century. The pub is a short stroll from Dickens World, The Historic Dockyard Chatham and Dockside Outlet Shopping Centre and just a mile from Rochester, with its Norman castle and cathedral.

Review of ship and trades
What a find!
I booked this for my fiancé's birthday as we were in search of some history in the Rochester area.
I loved the uniqueness of it and the fact it was near Chatham Historic Dockyards. Right from the start the staff went out of their way to help, we were able to check in early. The room was amazing. We had a feature room complete with our own balcony. Albeit we were in a marina situation and above the outdoor section of restaurant, there was no noise we felt completely tucked away. The hotel generally was clean, bright and the standard of the included breakfast the next day was absolutely superb. Very impressed and would definitely come back again.
