Me and a colleague popped into have a spot of lunch in between meetings. I have stayed here before and it was really good - we walked across Chester as I wanted to show my colleague this really cool place. The service was so poor I wish we had not bothered. 12.30pm on a Thursday lunchtime and it was dead,...

Location - fantastic Decor - amazing and unusual Bedroom - brilliant Welcome - solemn Bar staff - great Food - gorgeous Service - needs improving Value - worth it To round our stay up , something different , don't expect friendliness and warmth , it's a city centre boutique hotel which is worth a stay but not worth 5 stars

This hotel was recommended by a friend who had recently stayed. I took my wife for her birthday for a two night stay. There is no on site parking, car park nearby with a discount but it adds another £17 to your stay. Staff are polite and efficient. Ordered the light breakfast in our room for two, only one breakfast...

Recently popped in to Odd Fellows to have a beverage with my friend and I was actually appalled! The whole restaurant was pretty quiet with NO staff in sight for a good ten minutes I was walking around like a headless chicken looking for staff to get a coffee, I was waiting for a hay barrel to roll across room....

To say Oddfellows in Chester is expensive is an understatement your unlikely to get much change, if any from £20 2 drinks but worth it, the staff, the decor, the drinks even the customers from time to time are first class. I've even been a wedding there which was a lovely event. It's not really a place to send the...

the room was alright and clean. What disappointed however was the lack of clarity over prices. We were told 'breakfast included' when asking at reception, this was confirmed by a waiter. Then, on leaving- we were asked to pay for the continental breakfast which they said was not part of the £147 a night. The toilet in the bedroom could...

Management response:

Dear non22017 Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your stay with us. We always take feedback from our guests seriously. Sorry to hear there was some confusion over prices. The room rate does include a light breakfast-to-go with our compliments but this is not intended to replace a full cooked breakfast or continental breakfast which...

We called in just for drinks while in Chester, the decor or the place is lovely apart from the big sticker pictures or birds in the main bar/lounge area? Not sure if the connection or relevance to a beautiful room? We had a couple of drinks pity my glass of wine was stale, the taste, colour and the aroma when...

We visited with our little girl for afternoon tea which was splendid. We took advantage of the special offer. Tea for two for about £30 with prosecco. This has to be pre-booked. Well worth it. Lovely place.

What a fantastic hotel - very quirky and a bit bonkers! Room with circular bed - got to try it! Yes, make sure you are happy to see each other shower and no real door to toilet. Beware. Bar area and garden busy with good vibe. Would love to visit on a Friday or Saturday for full effect. Friendly staff...

As a hotel, bar and restaurant, Oddfellows brings a fresh and unique experience to Chester. The 18 exclusive boutique bedrooms each have their own charm and combination of iconic and contemporary furnishings.

Complete with The Garden by Simon Radley -our Mediterranean-inspired restaurant - and The Secret Garden - a unique indoors/outdoors oasis; Oddfellows provides the ideal escape... ... more   less
