When I was a small child I used to visit Chester regularly during school holidays whilst visiting relatives who lived in the area. Every Saturday I used to walk past The Chester Grosvenor and imagine myself staying there one day.....
Well that little girls dream became reality this week when, after telling my husband about my childish imaginings, he booked us a 2 night stay through Secret Escapes and I have to say I was not disappointed. The hotel is very plush and posh and the staff made us feel very welcome and perfectly comfortable in such opulent surroundings.
The room was very clean, well equipt for a comfortable stay and generous in size. The bed was enormous and offered a comfortable nights sleep.
We ate in La Brasserie during our first evening and the food was tasty, well presented and the service was excellent. The cocktails were delicious although rather expensive but this was a treat after all. We received 20% off our restaurant bill because we booked through Secret Escapes which was a bonus.
With its central location, comfortable rooms and total lack of "stuffiness", I would definately recommend The Chester Grosvenor to anyone looking to explore Chester for a short break.
If I had to give a negative it would be about having to pay extra for a cooked breakfast, this seems quite bizarre when other hotels of a lower star rating and cheaper tariff can stretch to including this in their room price...it does smack of being a little greedy and tight when you offer 5 start service but toast and jam for breakfast!
