I've grown up in Chester so spent many days (and nights as a teenager!) walking past the Grosvenor doormen with their top hats and wandering how nice it was inside.
And it is, very, very nice. We went for one night for my wife's 30th birthday over the Jubilee weekend.
Now I don't want to sound like I'm complaining at the hotel (please see my previous reviews - we don't normally stay in hotels like this) but we paid £230 for a stay of approximately 15 hours and unfortunately the experience never got beyond very nice. Maybe if you stay at these places regularly then that's fine but for me £230 pn means the hotel has to provide something more.
For instance, the basic £210 room DOESN'T come with a TV and ours (the one price level up) whilst having a TV had no complimentary tea and coffee facilities but lots of room for packaged sweets at £5 a throw!
The room itself was fabulously decorated, the staff were very helpful but I'm afraid this is what I would expect here. The continental breakfast included in the price was ok (the surroundings are lovely) but why should I have to pay extra to have scrambled egg and a sausage when I've paid so much to stay in the first place?
It's well located, it's comfortable, it's .... nice.
But it wasn't what I was hoping for.
