People work there so friendly not even open account there . But the one in Gravesend that we had open account there there are absolutely joke not even showed their expression for caring customers .What they only said is the rule. And even their custo.ers relation head office us completely joke too. The recent I gave 3 * they should received 5 but the head office their customer services like the one in Gravesend. So I can imagination that anything's when wrong they won't look after customers at all. Very shame of head office managers . I requested for talking.g to managers in head office they said their boss busy or go holiday. Now nearly 1 months not even heard anything's. What kind of customer service is that???. If u have money need to tho ked about their customer services.

The Nationwide website is basically fine - there are few difficulties in using it and it is generally accessible 24/7. If I had a criticism it would be that it has so many adverts on it that speed of access is sometimes reduced - as you wait for the ad to load before you reject it. While I understand the bank's enthusiasm for advertising it's products to its customers, I do occasionally think that a simple switch to block adverts that customers see repeatedly would be a good idea (as well as a good selling point!). Some of us simply want online access to our accounts with options to choose other services rather than a continuous barrage of products - many of which we have no interest in.

What an amazing practice! From start to finish my experience has been 5 star. I feel that Rajiv really listened to what I wanted and delivered above and beyond!! My new smile is great and I’m a very happy customer, don’t hesitate to use this practice from minor things to more complicated fixes. The staff and dentists are all so welcoming and accommodating it puts you right at ease!! Thanks to all the staff

I have had a lovely experience with this Dentist. Rajiv done an amazing job with my teeth. He is quite the perfectionist and has taken the time to make sure I am happy with the results. Thank you to him and his lovely assistant. I also found the receptionists here very welcoming, particularly Helen, who has been ever so kind and has a real warm and friendly nature. She always made time to speak to me and my son. Thank you. Gee.

Ark-G Dental Centre

12 Crayford High St, Dartford DA1 4HG, UK – 01322 527415

The staff are very friendly and understanding. I need several treatments and the dentist explained the options NHS and private. I am currently undergoing a combination of both private and NHS treatments,so this is available. Premises are always sparkling clean and the nurses are always one step ahead which is what you want when you are in a little discomfort. I would recommend this dentist as they are very professional in all aspects of the visit.

I recently went there with my children. My kids were very scared but the lady dentist, she was so kind and gentle with them. All the staffs are very nice and lovely. The very young Asian nurse was very friendly and reassuring with my kids. I cannot emphasise on how impressed I am with this surgery. The staffs were all polite and professional. They also gave me some free toothpaste sample which was a plus. I would definitely recommend this practice to all my friends & family.

Northumberland Heath Dental Surgery

First visit was with my 8 month baby and needed advice about his tooth that was sore and red. They saw him straight away and were extremely helpful and gave good advice. Since then I have signed up my family with this dentist and they are very helpful and treat each patient with care. Customer service is really good they explain everything to you.

Great dental surgery! Everyone is really helpful and friendly. As someone who is really scared of going to the dentist they put me right at ease and explained everything they were doing. I would definitely recommend this dentist to everyone I know!!

I don't understand the bad reviews here; I cannot fault this company - very nice chap on the phone; skip delivered within an hour of me phoning! Would definitely use this company again. Update, May 2018 - used them again and still give 5* for excellent service; drivers good, staff on phone very pleasant.

Have used this company three times now, and never had a problem, needed the skip collected due to having work done on the drive couldn't do that day and gave me a time of between 7 and 9 the next day true to there word they came at 7.20. Would use them again.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Dartford

Royal Siam Thai Restaurant

85 Lowfield St, Dartford DA1 1HP, UK – 01322 288887

Visited with a fairly large mixed age family group and found both the food and service top notch. It was a Saturday night and busy too. The only problem was the stuck up woman sat nearby with her husband who took exception to a diminutive 88 year old woman in our party standing next to and talking to someone she hadn't seen for 45 years. So glad this woman turned her nose up, got her food put in takeaway containers and "huffed off" with her poodle husband in tow. Perhaps she should have gone somewhere more expensive and exclusive?

I normally go out dinner there and the food is great, but this time i wanted to try the lunch buffet but was a bit disappointed. Not many choices of dishes although it's value for money. The plates were cold and you already lost your appetite. The staff was more than happy to warm the plates for me although they do not normally. The food was on the salty side. It's value for money but I would not really recommend. I prefer to stick to the à la carte. Unless, there is a major change in the lunch buffet. Nevertheless, the staff was courteous, polite and ready to help.

Very good junior school - the teachers are very skilled and child-friendly. They do not push your kids too much but they make a great impact on the start of your child's life, wising them up and preparing them for 'big' school.

Very good school

Our Lady's Catholic Primary School

7 King Edward Ave, Dartford DA1 2HZ, UK – 01322 222759

The teachers were quite nice and caring, and the school also had a sense of community. I met a few nice people there but the school lacked challenge. I hadn't learnt anything from Yr 4 onwards. The number of assemblies were excessive (maybe even an understatement). The only music lessons I recall having were in Yr 4. The only other instrument was a recorder, which only practiced hymns for the local church. They also lacked in drama. The only time I remember practicing drama in the school was in Yr 6, practicing the end of school play (which is essentially the bare minimum). As soon as I got into secondary school, I was completely unprepared and had a tough time learning certain subjects because we had not even briefly covered them in primary school. The school maintains relatively good behaviour however. I would say that both the negatives and positives balance quite equally. That's why I rated the school 3 stars.

best school i have ever been to hi everyone its Ben Tanner keep up the good work.

Fleetdown Primary School

Lunedale Rd, Dartford DA2 6JX, UK – 01322 226891

Was an awful school, but since ms kon left, it has gone SKY HIGH

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to 180 Year 1 & Year 5 pupils at Fleetdown Primary School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff and found the hall prepared just as I had requested. The day was well organised with all groups arriving on time. The excited students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, travelling across a future colonised Solar System and learning about the various types of stars. Thank you Fleetdown Primary for a very pleasant visit.
