having booked this hotel for our annual twixmas visit to chester (27/12/13-30/12/13) and then reading other trip advisor reviews we went with a certain amount of trepidation!
our first impressions were good - the hotel reception area was welcoming and spotless.
after a very friendly and swift and early check-in off we went to our room. on our way we did find that the carpet on the corridor was a bit threadbare and the floors a bit creaky but no more so than other hotels such as the holiday inn etc.
we had asked for a quiet, upper floor room and in room 231 that is exactly what we got.
the room was very clean, a good size and had a decent sized and very clean bathroom. the bed was very large, spotless and as we found out later very comfy! we had the best nights sleep that we have had in a hotel in recent years! the tea coffee making facilities were fine and with a good selection - on our second night we wanted a few extra sachets and asked at reception and this wasn't a problem.
breakfast the next morning was buffet style and with enough choice for most. the food was topped up on a regular basis. I asked for camomile tea and this was brought straight away. I also asked for veggie sausage on two of the mornings but this did not appear - perhaps the chef wasn't in the mood. the breakfast staff were all very friendly and a great asset to the hotel.
as for noise levels-this isn't down to the hotel-it's the other guests you are with that create the noise-where there are other people there will be noise wherever you stay! we were lucky we had a quiet break.
one strange thing though-you do have to take your room towels to the health centre which is a bit odd-perhaps the hotel could review this policy?
would I go again ? yes I would. we got good value for the price we paid.
