Stayed as part of a lads weekend so was seeking a hotel which represented value for money and this did not miss, £21 p/p inc. breakfast is difficult to beat anywhere let along somewhere which is so close the city centre (5-10 minutes stroll).
We arrived well before check in as we had prior arrangements during the day but we were welcomed and left our luggage whilst we went off upon return a member of staff (Mel) had kindly taken this up to our rooms which was very kind.
The hotel room itself was compact as you would expect (housing 6 in 1 room) but was clean with 2 triple bunk beds (took the top bunk, not sure when I will next get that chance) and a small shower room & toilet (sink was in the room). The room was perfect for our requirements as we were not expecting to spend much time in it.
Another area of note was the seating area outside the back door which was sheltered and perfect for gathering, sharing a drink and for the end of the inevitable kebab at the end of a heavy evening.
The breakfast was full english and was fine with unlimited coffee and tea available.
The only reason for a 4 instead of 5 rating is that the area surrounding the hotel is not the best and parking is not realistically available free in the area instead you have to utilise the railway station at £5.70 for 24 hours, both these elements however are outside of the control of the hotel.
Overall I would not hesitate in booking The Bunkroom if I was visiting Chester again, thanks to all the staff especially Christopher and Mel for making us feel so welcome before and during our stay.
