Dear guest, Many thanks for taking your time to provide feedback about your recent experience. I would like to apologise for the poor service you received at breakfast. Looking into the system I can see that the majority of our guests came down to breakfast at the same time which caused it difficult to manage on the day which I am sincerely sorry for. Kindest regards, Craig Phillips General Manager

Nice Hotel, nice location, all extra's

Pros: Good kerb appeal. Booked ebookers.com - not use search engine agent again as displayed as free breakfast; confirmation said room only - refund refused
Cons: Breakfast quality. Entering from car park, floor tiles broken and place in need of a coat of paint. First impressions need improving.
Location: Location, close to Chester City Centre overlooking race course. Nice shopping on rows. Lovely "Roman" amphitheatre and Roman historic wall etc.
Enjoyed stay, disappointing that car par extra, breakfast extra, offered upgrade as rooms available extra (have experienced in other hotel upgrade free for goodwill). Breakfast in lovely dining area, pity about the quality; over cooked even though restaurant not busy at 0900 am.

No hot water - no response to email

There were a few minor issues with the hotel, but more notably no hot water! Apparently the boiler was broken, no appology and no response to my email

Lovely hotel, will definitely stay again!

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the Abode. We arrived earlier than the check-in time & our room was ready for us. We were very impressed with the room; modern, spacious, clean, welcoming & the bathroom was particularly nice! We did not have an evening meal at the hotel but after our delicious breakfast the next morning, we will next time. The breakfast was one of the nicest we've had & nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We had a drink in the rooftop cocktail bar on the Saturday night & this was not disappointing, lovely cocktails & again staff were very polite & welcoming. I would definitely recommend this hotel, the location is spot on. We have stayed in a few other hotels in Chester & in our opinion this is by far the best....we will be back!!

Perfect location, fantastic room.

Stay here a couple of times a year and can't fault it. Beautiful clean rooms, perfect location and plenty of parking.

Slightly overpriced but a nice hotel

Pros: Clean room, good size and great location.
Cons: Parking charges and view from the room (straight into the offices opposite!)
Location: Great location, within 5 minutes walking distance to centre. Piccalino's is a must!
Overall the hotel was nice, although we could have stayed at the 5* Grosvenor for an additional £30 (and they park your car for you!) We stayed in what they called the Enviable Suite, which was comfortable and for the 1 night myself and my partner stayed it was ideal. Great location for a stroll into the centre and a Miller & Carter Steakhouse next door (although we ate at Piccalino's which I highly recommend). The room was clean and we were provided with dressing gowns and slippers, which were needed as the room was freezing when we entered and took a while to heat up. Staff were friendly and welcoming, although little attention was paid when we were checked in and the receptionist asked us the same things twice. The thing that lets this hotel down is the fact you have to pay for parking. I understand that central parking is expensive and never normally free, but we have stayed in places that charge a small amount for the entire stay. The Abode charges £10 PER NIGHT! Extortionate! We were made aware of the actual parking fee once we had booked and received our confirmation email, initially you are just told that there is a parking surcharge. Upon arriving at reception they take your card details from you, and when you leave they tell you to just press the buzzer to get out of the car park. No mention is made that the £10 will be charged to the card given upon checking in.

Lovely hotel

Ideal location room basic but clean. Bed very comfortable last time we stayed had an upgraded room( special occasion) so was a little underwhelmed at the average rooms. Still had a nice time.
