Welcome to The Ship & Trades

Boasting a beautiful marina setting and a stylish modern design, the Ship and Trades is a unique place to dine, drink and stay in Chatham.

It’s a contemporary bar, restaurant and hotel overlooking one of the yacht basins at the former Royal Naval Dockyard - with extensive waterfront seating offering panoramic views across the River Medway to historic Upnor Castle.

The views are every bit as special from the inside, with a glass-panelled wrap-around restaurant serving up supreme marina vistas along with delicious fresh food. In the bar, meanwhile, you can feast your eyes on an extensive range of local cask ales, world wines and international lagers - all kept and served to the highest standard.

There are 15 beautiful boutique bedrooms here too, each stylishly designed with a nod to the location’s nautical heritage, and promising some of the best accommodation in Chatham.

A peaceful night’s sleep, a tasty breakfast and the chance of a magical marina view are just some of the reasons to make The Ship & Trades your base for a  memorable Kent getaway.
