The Vines is located in the heart of the historic city of Rochester, aptly named from its close proximity to the Grade II listed Vines gardens. With an impressive avenue of mature London Plane trees, bordering the “Broad Walk”, the neighbouring park is a shady and tranquil spot in the centre of busy Rochester, Kent.
Just a short walk from our luxury hotel and restaurant is the characteristic and charming high street. Its boutique shops are dwarfed by the grandeur of the Castle and Cathedral that dominate the cobbled streets. Offering an array of exquisite independent shops and beautiful views across the estuary, Rochester is the perfect place to spend your time.
By choosing to stay and dine at The Vines hotel and restaurant, you are perfectly located to discover an array of visitor’s attractions. Rich in history that surrounds its most famous resident, Charles Dickens, you are welcomed to celebrate and remember through various festivals, events and museums.
Enveloped amongst the distinct countryside atmosphere, you will forget how close you are to the hustle and bustle of central London. Just a stone’s throw from the mainline Rochester Station, this provides the perfect transport link to connect you with the capital and surrounding areas.
Long or short stay, The Vines of Rochester is the perfect backdrop to indulge in the culture of Rochester and experience the warmth and luxury of our boutique hotel and restaurant. Book a table, grab a morning coffee or enjoy a lazy cocktail afternoon. With food available throughout the day we are excited to be opening in Autumn as the perfect accompaniment to this already beautiful city.
