“Great Hotel , Fantastic Location.”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

My wife and I decided to visit Chester and stay over , we enjoyed our stay so much we stayed an additional night.
Check in was very simple and handled efficiently , The rates are very reasonable for centre of Chester , the room was more than big enough , very clean , the bed was enormous , my only complaint would be it was too hot !!!! , in the middle of February , seems unfair to complain about that , we were overlooking a very bust street , but you could not hear any noise whatsoever, Breakfast was first class , all this made for a very enjoyable stay in a very beautiful City , We would definitely recommend and will definitely return again.

We stayed over the weekend 3rd to 5th February 2012 expecting a reasonable hotel; what we got was superb staff who treated us royally on our weekend break which was to celebrate my wife’s birthday.
We were upgraded to a superior suite which was stunning and made us feel very special.
The reception staff were amongst the most helpful I have come across even finding me a pair of Blackberry charges after I left ours at home.
The restaurant serves delicious food but my wife had to forgo fish and chips they had sold out, not a problem as she had the lamb cutlets which I had had the previous night, they were lovely. So despite really poor weather not showing off Chester to its best the hotel staff ensured we had a wonderful weekend thanks to the dedication and friendliness of all the staff.
This was our first stay in a Macdonald Hotel, it definitely is an experience to build on, amazing value for money.

We stayed at Blossoms on the 27th and 28th January 2012. Could not fault this hotel, our
rooms at the back of the hotel were perfect. Both rooms had a bath, extras included an iron, ironing board, fan, tea making facilities (including a tea pot). Nothing was too much trouble for the staff all very nice. We asked for ice and extra milk and have to say it was delivered
to our room in minutes witha smile.Breakfast was fantastic, a wonderful buffet and a full
cooked breakfast served at the table. All very fresh. Richard is really good, very helpful and pleasant. The location is perfect

Room Tip: If you like peace and quiet you are probably much better off requesting a room at the back we did...

We stayed 1 night in the hotel, it was lovely and warm, we had a lovely welcome by the receptionist who was very helpful. Anything we asked for was no trouble (even food at 2am) was no bother, amd everything was done with a smile. Would definately go again.

We stayed at Macdonald New Blossoms Hotel over Christmas 2011 - we had an amazing time and they couldn't do enough for us, from the General manager to the restaurant staff, everyone was very friendly and helpful.
Our room was beautiful, we stayed for two nights and were so relaxed and rested that we thought we'd had a weeks holiday!
We have stayed in the hotel before and noticed significant changes in the menu. The breakfast was much better with a full vegetarian option which you don't get in a lot of hotels of the same standard. As a vegetarian myself I really apreciated this.
We stayed there at Christmas and the staff had to do long shifts over the holiday but they managed this with a smile and helped to make our Christmas special. The reception staff were always on hand and were very knowlegable about the city.
We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed on a 2-night break, courtesy of our Tesco Vouchers. Easy to book, and thanks to previous reviews on here, we booked a room at the rear of the Hotel, to avoid the street noise, mainly emanating from the Red Door nightclub (more of this place later). Unless you sleep very well indeed, I would recommend a rear Room.
The twin room was more than adequate for our needs, and requests for extra pillows were promptly dealt with.
The breakfast was very good, with plenty of choice.
We had pre-booked an evening meal on the second evening, and were not disappointed with the food, which was of very good quality. Can't believe I got stung by the old chestnut of ordering bottled water (at £4.95 a bottle), so I would have tap water next time. Nevertheless, the evening meal was most enjoyable, and cost me £15 pp, which gave an allowance of £25pp off the Menu.
Despite having a rear Room, it was still possible to hear the 120-140bpm emanating from the night club on the Saturday evening, up until 2am. However, the fact that everything else on this stay was really good, I wouldn't go overboard about this - just to let you know what to expect.
The location is superb, just yards from the shops. My football team played at Chester FC, and won, so that was nice! (Hednesford Town, if you are bothered, which I know you probably aren't!).
When checking out, they presented me with a Bill of around £140, which I had to prove was wrong, by showing them my original confirmation from Macdonald Central Booking. As it was over £80 difference, you may wish to note this, if you are staying courtesy of Tesco, and take your confirmation with you as well.
Finally, the Grosvenor Shopping Centre car-park is nearby. You do NOT have to get your car-park ticket validated at the Hotel. Just present it into the machine at the Pay Station, and you can pay for 2 days stay, either by cash or card. (£10 per 24 hours).
A most enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Rear rooms are quieter, but take some ear plugs on a weekend to drown out the nightclub beat.

My wife and I stayed in the New Blossoms for a short break over Christmas, and enjoyed the holiday so much that I felt I had to write to thank the management. Every single member of staff we encountered simply could not have been more polite or helpful. Excellent.
