“Overpriced”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

My comments are based on the price I paid for the room.
Room very very small. I was told it was their cheapest package. Paid £130 plus an extra £10 each for breakfast. Room had recently been decorated but it had stains on carpet. Water marks down the wall and mould in the bathroom with the seal hanging off the shower divide. Bathroom exceptionally small. Shower head been replaced in a totally different metal. The noisiest extractor fan I've ever heard. 2 chocolates in our room with a quarter of 1 strawberry. Location fantastic. Right in the centre. Complained but only the same sort of room available

From the moment we arrived at Reception to checking out the next day we received smiling, helpful and courteous service from charming staff. We were most favourably impressed. They seemed to really want to help and for our stay to be a pleasant one.
We were also pleased with our room and the restaurant food was of good quality and nicely presented. Full marks all round well deserved.

We stayed at the New Blossoms Hotel on a busy Saturday night in Chester and the Hotel was also hosting a wedding party. Despite this, we were warmly welcomed and throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. All staff were welcoming, friendly and very helpful. Our room on the first floor was spacious with a comfortable seating area and the bathroom was larger than expected for an older building and well planned. The room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was a real treat with plenty of choice including speciality bread, individual yogurts with compote and the cooked options were prepared freshly to order. I overhead a lady on the next table who was visiting from Ireland also raving about her stay in this hotel.

Never visited Chester before. We stayed in the blossoms hotel great location in the centre of a first cc lass city. We travelled to Chester by train and arrived to find a beautiful hotel in Chester. The staff were very welcoming, spacious bedroom, very clean bathroom, tea and coffee. Comfortable bed. Wonderful breakfast every morning. The bar staff and facilities were a bonus. We have booked again later in the year to stay here again and have a flutter at Chester Races. The town is welcoming and there are some first class restaurants.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and had a very comfortable stay. We booked a suite which consisted of a bedroom with a four poster bed, separate lounge area which was very spacious and also had a TV (in addition to the one in the bedroom) and a bathroom which had both bath and shower. We booked using the hotel's own website and it cost less than £100 per night including breakfast which I thought was very reasonable.
There were some nice little extras in the room including the chocolates on arrival and the Nespresso coffee machine. However, it would have been nice to have some cotton wool and cotton wool buds as part of the bathroom toiletries.
I liked the fact that breakfast was ordered and freshly cooked unlike so many hotels these days where you have to queue up and help yourself to hot food that you don't know how long has been hanging around.
The hotel is right in the centre of Chester so everything is on your doorstep.
All in all I would recommend this hotel.

I stayed here in a last minute deal when I was on a night out with work colleagues. It was functional and ok value for money but I would have been disappointed in it if I had been travelling with family as it could do with modernising but simply as a place for sleeping it was fine. Only part of the service that I was disappointed in was that I didn't get a receipt after pre-paying.
