We got a good deal with this hotel, which included a meal with wine. Food was very good, breakfast was great, cooked fresh for you, also room was very spacious and bed huge. Will definetly use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Room 206 was at back of hotel, so no noise from main street

This hotel is a great place to stay if you want to shop and have a night out in Chester. The staf are very friendly and helpful. The hotel restaurant is a bit pricey but this is reflected in the excellent food, although the menu limited.
Breakfast is very good and the staff ensure that tables are cleared and places set again as soon as they are vacated making for a pleasant environment to eat.
All in all a great place to stay for one of the best shopping cities in the UK and so picturesque. Chester also has some of the best street entertainment as well

Room Tip: Rooms at the front may be a little noisy a there is a popular pub and night club nearby. Don't...

visited in october lots of problems gave my mum anchovies in her salad knowing she is a strict vegetarian then offered bread as a alternative starter.The bread was covered in blue mould and was clearly days out of date after a lot of fuss offered us a free return visit of our choice only to find 48hrs before had,nt booked us in so had to stay where they had room for us which was a sister hotel in the middle of nowhere. Paola the hotel manager let us down badly and the area manager stephanie hocking made nothing but excuses for her staff when there is no excuse for how we have been treated just cannot compete with marriot and hilton and a travelodge would give them a run for there money :(

Poor experience on arriving for early check in, but sorted out eventually. Hotel was built in late 19th century so comes with some atmosphere but poor plumbing so don't expect a power shower. Well located, but noisy if you have a room over nightclub entrance/exit. Breakfast was OK. Booked the room early, so value was pretty good. No parking though, which is a bit of a pain(£10 for 24hrs in nearby public car park).

Room Tip: ask for room not overlooking night club entrance

Pricey compared to some other hotels but despite a rather small bedroom we got the quality we have come to expect from Macdonald Hotels. Clean and comfortable room, nice bathroom. Dissapointed not to have ipod dock as we have had in other Macdonalds. very friendly and helpful staff, from check-in to check out. Great location for central chester shops and attractions. We did not eat at the hotel as we thought £15 each for breakfast was a bit steep so cannot comment on the food, but the restaurant and bar area did look welcoming and comfortable.

Room Tip: we were at the back, suspect front facing rooms maybe noisy

My partner and I visited the hotel for a long weekend. The hotel is situated in the heart of Chester and a great location.

On arrival we found that we had been upgraded to a suite as they knew it was a special anniversary. The staff on reception were attentive and welcoming. Richard Brown in particular made our stay extra special with his attention to detail and organising flowers. The suite was spacious and comfortable and very clean as was the hotel. Whilst we didn't eat in the restaurant, the breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice and the staff were always on hand. I would definately recommend the hotel for the service, location and value for money. Many thanks again to the staff for making our stay special.

This hotel is ideally placed for visiting and shopping in Chester. Having stayed here last year, the staff have really up their game, and are now politie, helpful and welcoming. Our room was very nice, and as I requested, at the back of the hotel, as the front rooms tend to be affected by the noise of late night revellers. The breakfast was excellent, and the staff were happy to attend to your every request. The carpark only costs £10.00 for 24 Hours, which is more than adequate for an overnight stay. We will be booking again for next year, as we have yet to find a such a reasonably priced and welcoming hotel to stay in.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room at the back of the hotel. You won't get any views, but as Chester is very...
