Arrived today to check in after booking 5 weeks ago, couldn't get in and was told by a person inside,who refused to open door to speak to us, that hotel had shut down a few days ago. We had no phone call or email to inform us and had to find another hotel at ridiculously short notice.

the pro's were it was affordable and the price included breakfast, the location was good, it was pet friendly, and we were allowed to leave our case at the hotel the day we left so that we could enjoy a bit more sightseeing. However, the beds were not that comfy. I was originally put in room 2 and there was...

The Eaton Hotel is an older, probably Victorian, building situated alongside the canal. It is a small hotel in a street with several modern, larger hotels. In my view it offers good value for money as a base for exploring Chester, or as I was, for an overnight business trip. The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable. The shower...

I stayed at the Eaton August Bank holiday weekend 2015 to celebrate my friends' 1st wedding anniversary. We were 2 couples & had requested rooms nearby each other. Nope - we were a floor apart - one above the other. My room (6) was large & clean enough, except some short hairs mysteriously appeared in our basin on the 2nd...

Had approached this hotel and booked by telephone as required a hotel where our 13 year old son could stay close to us, and were allocated an "appropriate" room by the staff.
