Quite disappointing, we booked an executive room which clearly wasn't, threadbare carpet and tired decor, so short staffed but the staff really did their best and were really pleasant, at one point one of the staff was trying to manage the breakfast room and reception at the same time, on speaking to staff they say this is a regular occurrence, a lot of waiting around

Central location

Pros: Location, helpful staff-particularly housekeeping.
Cons: Consistency. restaurant prices and identity-each visit seems to have a different focus. breakfast range.
Location: Close to transport, rail link and service buses. short walk to cinema/theatre. Great tea, cake and more at Beatons-by the cathedral, to the right.
Using public transport, this was an ideal location, near Marks and Spencer, bank etc. Room was lovely and warm, beds comfy. A few changes to previous visits; individual biscuit, no water initially-previously large filled bottles. nothing major, just little changes. Didn't eat in the hotel this time, based on past experiences the breakfast can be great and varied, to ok and limited choice, a shame that the hotel seems to be different each time, particularly re the restaurant. Overall, room rate was good for location and the new member of staff was particularly helpful-thanks.

Noisy

Pros: The room was fine, the staff were pleasant but I suspect that anyone only staying for one night is allocated a room affected by the noise from the club.
Cons: Noise until 4.30 from nearby club otherwise would have been fine.
Location: Chester is a lovely town with added interest from the canals, beautiful river and superb Cathedral.

Great value stay

The hotel was very clean. Every member of staff we had contact with was very friendly & helpful. We had dinner at the hotel which was a reasonable price & was very nice. Drinks & coffees were expensive. (coffee £3.50) My bed was not very comfortable but nothing is like being in your own comfortable bed. Despite poor reviews Ive read I would 100 recommend staying at this hotel.

Lovely hotel, shame about the night club!!

Booked the hotel for my mum and stepdad. Everything was lovely apart from the nightclub underneath. They didn't get any sleep until after the music stopped at 3:50!! Should really warn people about this

Great hotel but pricey

Nice historic building the the centre of Chester with lovely friendly staff. The room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was very spacious and modern. The linen and pillows were of high quality and the beds were comfortable. There was no safe to lock away valuables and no fridge in the room.

Weekend getaway

Hotel was good but we feel the breakfast could be improved. The toast tasted like plastic not at all like freshly toasted bread.. The juices were not tasty and there were only vegetarian sausages on the menu no pork sausages. Loud music heard from next door pub at night till early morning.

Heart of the City

Staff were all very helpful and knowledgeable. Building old and quirky, but modernised where appropriate. Lashings of hot water. Great location in the heart of Chester. Easy to find off inner ring road. No car park but discounted nearby shopping centre parking very close, with a short walk across city wall (steps) rather than round corner by road.
