Reviewed 14 January 2014

Having visited Chester on multiple occasions and stayed in other local City hotels I was keen to try the Abode, and was left disappointed.

The hotel is in a great location, offers very reasonable rates and is spotless throughout the hotel.

My only real criticism was that our room (414), the heating did not work, having phoned through to reception twice to report this, I was told that they would reset it which would resolve problem, however after over an hour of waiting, nothing. No call from reception to check if we were ok or offer to swap room, I can only assume they had forgot about us.

Spent the night formy birthday upon check in we are asked if wanted to upgrade on several options which we didnt. Our room was noisy heard banging and drilling till 6pm. Went to the champagne bar first cocktail was fab then hardly any alcohol. This was not a patch on cocktails in the grosvenor. The room was nice fewchips out of fixtures. Beautifully clean just noisy. Woke me three times during the night.

Stayed here Saturday night as we like to eat in the Michael caines restaurant, always have a great time and the location is fantastic with chester town a short walk away, definitely try the indulgence package which includes a room and a fantastic meal! One word of advice if you are staying in the desirable room and your not to bothered about a balcony then go with one with a bath, the rooms seem to be bigger and the one we stayed in definitely had a bigger bed. Overall great hotel great restaurant and will certainly be back soon.

Stayed for a night in a superior room at Abode before sepnding a few days with family.

Overall the rooms are spacious and well appointed. We upgraded to exec as this had a balcony / decent view.

TV was a bit small, but bed was very comfy.

All in all a good nights stay - but at £119 per night (without breakfast) i reckon i could have done better. That said - location location location is everything and this is exectly where you want to be.

Dont get me wrong - its nice and i would stay again.

We were delighted with the hotel, the staff were most friendly and helpful. Situation perfect for walking the walls of Chester and exploring the city. The food was delicious and the restaurant very comfortable. We will certainly return!

Room Tip: Room excellent but lighting rather poor.

The staff were wonderful- friendly and helpful but we felt the atmosphere of the hotel a little cool and corporate. The bars were empty and this felt like we should be out of the hotel. The rooms were clean and tidy and very comfortable.The absence of a pool was felt. Perhaps one bar and the other bar could be a pool or lounge? The gym was small but adequate. the quality of the food was good although a little limited for vegetarians. Aside from all of this, we did have good break.

Stayed at Abode over New Year, had the most relaxed freindly warm and enjoyable experience, Dont get me wrong yes it was New Year and there where Parties Balls, Fire works Michael Caine"s Amazing Dininig ( Which was elegant both the food and service). All staff throughout the stay enabled us to have the best retreat. We will be going again Loved it,
