I can't really add anymore than I have in the title - our stay was perfect! The staff were friendly. It was like a home from home with everything there (we all commented that they had thought of everything).

Stayed for one night with friends in between Christmas and New Year. Stunning apartment with large kitchen and living space. Lovely outdoor garden space if staying in summer. Spotlessly clean rooms, kitchen, etc. Amazing beds and shower rooms too. Would have loved to have stayed longer. Only negative is the parking. Think ahead and don’t expect to turn up and get an on street space.

Myself and my partner visited the hotel for a fourth time and The Owners Residence for a second time this week. Although the hotel is amazing, the standards had slipped since we last visited. Usually on arrival, my suitcase is taken off of me and it is brought to my room, this time, there were no offers to assist me in taking my bags to the room. When I got in the room I noticed it had a bit more wear and tear. Also, it used to be Molton Brown toiletries which have now been replaced. There is also no Sky TV, which has been replaced by freeview. Although these small things didn’t ruin the experience, they certainly did take away from the luxurious experience of the hotel that we previously had. Not sure I would pay the money for the Owners Residence again as a result.

Response from ChesterResidence, General Manager at The Chester Residence
Responded 17 Jan 2020
Hello jdf1994, It's always lovely to welcome back guests who come to stay with us regularly. Over the last year we’ve been asking our customers for their views on how we operate and we’ve taken the feedback on board. This included asking if our customers wanted their luggage to be taken to their rooms. A very large majority of our clients prefer to take their own bags, but I can assure that, anyone who requires or requests assistance will have their bags carried. I am sorry if we didn’t meet your expectation and I will continue to monitor this. We’re now using Noble Isle toiletries; a quality British brand which is also stocked by Fortnum and Mason and Harrods. We have Freeview for all guests and a large collection of films and DVDs for guests too. I do hope we will welcome you back to The Chester Residence in future. Kind regards Kenny
