I go to this hotel on a regular basis. It is always clean and the staff is wonderful. Always greeted with a warm welcome. The beds are so comfy and breakfast service is always good. I know it is a bit off the beaten path but Chester is a unique town.

I always travel to Chester by train as the hotel is outside the station. Saves trying to journey on the dreaded motorways up to here from London. Very comfortable rooms. Great breakfast and near town. Quiet area. But don't get room to the left of front of the reception facing hotel. The linen is delivered very early and the driver...

Chester may be a small town, but the Best Western there serves up HUGE accommodations (including Popeye greeting you at the entrance of town). The rooms are reasonable and clean and comfortable. The people couldn't be friendlier (love that midwestern "vibe"). Breakfast is included, but you had better like high sugar and carbs -- however, it's still enough to get...

We have stayed at this Best Western many times and have never been disappointed. Everyone is very helpful with all your needs, the beds are comfortable, towels are the best we've had in any hotel and the room is one of the cleanest we've seen in our 5+ years working on the road.

I've been staying here for business over the last several years. They were having phone issues this trip, but their expanded and very upgraded breakfast was a very pleasant surprise. A wide variety of hot and cold options make anyone happy for breakfast including the kids with the waffles. Always a friendly staff so no reason to look elsewhere when...

Even though we arrived late and left early, there was a good 'inn' feel as we entered the hotel with fireplace and tall ceilings. Bobby at the desk was great and helped us feel at home. He helped us find a place to eat late and was very courteousl. Rooms were clean and the rest of the staff I met...

Was really unsure what to expect from this hotel in such s small town. I was pleasantly surprised. First of all, this hotel was CLEAN! Which is very important to me. Second of all, I was soooo surprised at how comfortable the bed was. The breakfast was very good with coffee that beats most. The little hotel has a lot...

If I had written this on the evening of arrival, I would have said - soulless and deeply depressing. The decor of the common areas is drab and the atmosphere is far from welcoming or comforting. However, the room was well appointed with a bath, huge bed, and a recliner chair. Good TV and good Wi-Fi. As always there was...
