Booked a one night stay - wished we could have stayed a week. The hotel was super. Reception staff were courteous and efficient. Our room overlooked the racecourse. The room was comfortable and clean. Furnishings were modern. Room was well stocked etc. The bar / brasserie was fine but the gem was the champagne bar and restaurant with the balcony. I admired the surroundings and kept forgetting that I was about to be eating in such a wonderful restaurant. The food was splendid. ( a further review to come).
Breakfast was very good too - many hotels fall down here but not this one.

Room Tip: some have super views over the racecourse.

Our room was ready earlier than expected so we checked in just after 12pm. Reception staff were very courteous and helpful. The room itself was light, airy and clean, with a view towards the city. The bed was huge and very comfortable although the pillows were overly plump and could have been a little flatter if I was to try pick fault.

The hotel is really well located, right next to the racecourse and just 5 mins walk into the centre of Chester. We started our evening with cocktails on the balcony of the bar on the 5th floor with it's great views. Expensive drinks but great for a treat!

We stayed on a room only basis and when making morning tea, realised that we didn't have any milk. One call to reception and we had a jug of fresh milk within 5 mins.

Yes, the carpark wasn't brilliantly signposted, and it cost £10 however, it was secure, well lit and very convenient.

We would definitely return to Abode in Chester and have no reservations in recommending it.

At any hotel people always think they can do better. Well i would like to think no one could have made our stay any better than it was. From the excellent service to the attractive view over the race course.

Room Service - Quick, easy and great food. What is a bonus here is there is no delivery charge just service charge which helps the pocket when ordereing more than once for drinks and food.

Dinner - Exquisite. Michael Caine you should be proud of your chefs. Food superb. Opted for the tasting menu, as I can never decide, and every course was superb. 1 course had ran out but was swapped with another course with apologies and a lovely glass of champagne to compensate which was not needed as we were not fussed but a lovely gesture in all. Staff here very friendly and you get a feeling they ant to be there which always helps.

Breakfast - still thought we were having dinner the food the same standard and plenty of it with the buffet to help us along. Saw someof the same faces from dinner working and they were still smiling and happy.

i can be honestly say it was the best weekend break I've had.

Down fall was the group complaining at breakfast and at reception about different issues. My advice to these guests get a grip and enjoy one of the Norths finest hotels.

Stayed here for 1 night. On the whole this was a good experience - nice modern room and spacious bathroom. Great location with access to shops and eating venues.

The menu choice at breakfast was not extensive - very few options for
veggies. The restaurant was fully booked for dinner but we coffee at the grill which was good.

Our main criticism was the air conditioning in the bedroom. The room was very warm and it was't possible to control the temp. When we spoke to reception they said they controlled the A/C from reception. This wasn't very effective and the room remained too warm!

We stayed here for a night away. I booked a desirable room which was disappointing to say the least - the bathroom was spacious enough due to the fact it didnt have a bath in it!! Shower only, which only went luke warm with water pressure I would expect to see in a 2* hotel. We had lunch in cafe bar and grill, the waitress was nervous but friendly, the chef was rude to the waitress which we witnessed and did not find very professional. The food was lovely. Breakfast was whole other experience - we were sat down quite quickly however the waitress was short and almost rude when taking our breakfast order. It wasnt until 40 minutes later when we enquired about out breakfast that it became apparent we had been forgotten about. The manager did apologise however when our breakfast was brought out the bacon was undercooked with bits on tinfoil on it, the mushroom(1 each) was cold, tomato cold - the only hot things were the sausage, black pudding and egg. Overall disappointing for the cost. Would not go back.
