I have just returned from a 2 night break at the Queens and I had to write to say what a wonderful trip it was. The hotel was very easy to find and as you dont have to drive into the centre of Chester you dont have to mess about with one way systems etc. The car park is right next door and is charged at £10 per 24 hours. We arrived at 14.00 on Friday, checked out at 11.00 on Sunday and were only charged £10. There are some comments on here to say the car park is not large enough but there were plenty of spaces when we were there. The hotel is situated right opposite Chester station and the walk into town is only 10 mins max. There are mini buses running every 6 mins outside the station that go into town.
The hotel itself is victorian and is seeped in history. There are cabinets dotted all around with newspaper clippings and memorabilia. The reception is at the bottom of a sweeping staircase in which you can see right up to the top floors.
Our room was just a basic room but was very grande and spacious. The bathroom wasnt the most luxourious I have ever seen but was very clean and by no means shabby. At night it did get very warm but we were able to open our windows.
The only small gripe we had was the price of the drinks in the restaurant in the Kings quarters. The meal was fantastic and was thoroughly enjoyed but when the bill arrived we nearly fell off our seats when we discovered we had been charged £6.25 for a vodka, lime and lemonade. We did mention it to the waitress who was very apologetic but explained they had to charge the lemonade as a bottle @ £2.00. I would recommend not getting a mixture and drink in the main bar.
The breakfast was very good. The service was excellent and the food (buffet syle with plenty of choice) was spot on.
I was also treated to a treatment in the spa and chose the Indian Head Massage. It was out of this world and I walked out feeling I was floating on air.
All in all this hotel is lovely and we will definatly be returning.
