Absolutely fabulous hotel, very friendly and helpful, especially Alice our receptionist who was fantastic, the location of the hotel, was in the centre of Chester, with good shopping facilities, and of course a bus ride away from the famous designer outlets of Chester oaks.

I don't know who awarded this place with four stars ??? Could do with a total refurb. Don't want to be too unkind to the young staff that seemed to be running the place, but , I think they could do with some guidance. Don't fall for the free parking either , you actually get £1 towards your fee. In...

Haven't stayed so can't comment on the bedrooms. Public rooms ok if unexciting. Bar not inspiring and drinks expensive. Better off in pub next door. We had buffet menu and again unexciting. However great position so consider if you get a deal.
