I stayed here for one night whilst on business in Aberdeen. The room was stylish and very comfortable. The menu in the dining room was not to my taste, nothing simple on it. Definitely a special occasion restaurant. On checking out in the morning, I asked to have coffee served in the lounge because I didn't want breakfast. One lady...

Nice decor, really stylish furniture. New tidy and good colours. Good good but expensive. Busy hotel and restaurant but pushed for time to serve quick enough. Good choice of food though. Well dressed staff and smart.

I stayed for one night at the Chester whilst at a charity rugby dinner in the hotel's Granite Suite. Have to say that the hotel is very good on all fronts. It has recently been refurbished to a very nice standard. I got a Grand room which was large with a huge bed and nice furnishings. Decent shower over bath....

I visited this hotel as a vendor at a ladies charity event. This is a beautiful chic hotel, very modern and fab location. There was an issue with vendors being fed a simple miss communication with the organisers. The staff came up trumps and fed us all a lovely hot meal. Thank you very much.

After staying here earlier in the year and thoroughly enjoying it, we decided to return again. The first stay we thought was excellent - the room the food and the staff. Our second stay we decided to pay a bit extra for a 'superior' room, which in all honestly it was probably worse apart from a little extra space between...

Dear L1690, Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate that you took the time to give us both the positive and constructive comments. I am not sure why you were given an accessible room as a GRAND ROOM. An accessible room is the same category as our CLASSIC ROOMS, unfortunately I am unable to investigate due to not knowing your...

The hotel was easy to find in a fashionable location. Recent renovations have resulted in an exceptionally stylish hotel. Clearly a lot of money has been spent recently on this sumptuous hotel. Parking was easy with extra spaces to the rear. The hotel reception is small but beautiful and staff were very warm and welcoming. Our room was reasonably priced...

I visited the Chester last night with my girlfriend and can safely say that we were blown away by the quality that was on show. Every detail was treated with delicacy and passion. The food was incredible and the excitement from the kitchen was evident. The canapé's were both a great touch and extremely tasty. I cannot express my delight...
