“Loved this hotel!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

My husband and I stayed at Oddfellows last week, and I wish we could have stayed there longer! I loved the beautiful details that were everywhere. We enjoyed several cocktails in the bar and had friendly service from the waitress. She even asked for feedback on my husband's martini on behalf of the bartender!

The room was well-appointed and the paper-bag breakfast was a cute concept. I wish we could have made a few breakfast selections, as we don't drink orange juice or eat croissants.

Room Tip: If you choose the last available room, it might be the handicap accessible one (which we had). The...

We stayed at Oddfellow's at the beginning of June for two nights. We were instantly impressed with the quirky interior and friendly staff.
We were a bit confused about the check in process, we intended to pay on check in using cash however we was told that payment would be taken on departure, the receptionist requested a pre authorization from our card for the total room amount and a further £75 for any "room charges", altogether £225! Gob smacked we reluctantly agreed. We ended up paying using that card but the £75 was held for a further 3 days. (We were told that it would get released on check out!).
Despite this our bedroom was beautiful, we only booked a standard room but was still very impressed, unfortunately we did have to move rooms on our 2nd night as the air con wasn't working and the room was incredibly hot. Fortunately we were upgraded, the upgrade was amazing, huge round bed, sofa and stunning bathroom. Nespresso coffee machines are a lovely touch. The garden outside is wonderful, very romantic at night. We ordered a platter on the second night which was delicious, so much so we ordered another bowl of olives!
The best bit about this hotel is the staff. Nothing is too much trouble. Everyone is helpful, smiley and willing to please even down to the maintenance man who came to look at our air con. They are a real credit to the hotel.
Overall we would 100% stay again and have already recommended friends and family.
Thanks Oddfellows!

Room Tip: The only problems we experienced was the air con and loud bottle bins being emptied very early, both...

Stayed for one night mid week on business. Very well presented Hotel and obviously a lot of money has been spent on it. Lots of beautiful, quirky detail totally lacking in atmosphere, hospitality or a friendly face.

All in all not any better than any other offering in Chester at the same price.

Room Tip: Hobsons Choice I think - I was allocated a room away from the busy courtyard - with a bar. The room...

We stayed here for the first time for our first anniversary but it won't be the last time we stay. The hotel is lovely and enjoyed the secret garden area. The staff are so friendly and helpful you could not ask for better service. Our room Was lovely with a nice free standing bath in the bedroom and lovely decor. The hotel is in a great place too, just two minute walk to the river and the same to get to the very centre of the town.

Stayed here for one night with my fiancé. Booked the Douglas Duplex Suite and what can I say it was amazing, clean and tidy, different and quirky, but due to the air conditioning not working (we didn't know it wasn't, we thought we couldn't get it on but they sent a maintenance man up within an hour of us been in the room) and they moved us to the newbrook room next door. They moved us with no fuss at all and gave us the choice to move if we wanted to. The hotel is very clean and tidy and very friendly and attentive staff. When we needed anything they did it within minutes!! Nothing was to much trouble and very highly recommended and will be stayed in the near future!!

Oddfellows is a very different type of hotel to what we have been used to very quirky,for example the shower cubicle was in the middle of the room, the toilet also had very little privacy,you have got to be comfortable with the person your with.the bed was comfortable,air con a bit noisy at night .not sure how comfortable it would be on hot summer nights Saying all these things we really enjoyed our stay and would go back again
