My husband booked this hotel through Laterooms.com and we were not disappointed, we had never been to Chester before so decided to have a night there as treat, we had a family room as we were with our 9 year old Daughter, the room was clean very spacious with a full size single bed for our Daughter and a massive kingsize for us, the bathroom was also very clean with everything you could need for an overnight with shower gels, shampoo etc, there is also an iron and full size ironing board should you need it and a hairdryer.
The staff on checking in were very helpful and cheerful and it was explained to us about the wifi, restaurant and leisure facilities etc. just a note though be careful when you are signing into the wifi as there is free wifi but also a superfast wifi which is chargeable and when signing in its seems to default you to this one and you have to uncheck it to get the free one!
The leisure facilities were also very good, with a pool, hot tub, steam room and a sauna, there is also a gym but I didnt get around to using this, when I first entered the pool I thought I had stumbled into a swingers club as the only other people in there were two couples who were both engaged in a very 'romantic clinch' I thought 'get a room' but then remembered we were in a hotel they had a room!! But anyway it soon sorted them out when my 9 year old joined me in the pool and started splashing around them, oh I bet they just loved our company lol!!
I cannot comment on the food here as we decided to take a 2 min walk out of the hotel to a Harvester restaurant where we got a main meal, unlimited salad, an ice cream sundae and unlimited soft drink for £9.99, I upgraded my drink to a glass of wine for an extra £1 (this unfortunately was not unlimited though) the food was very good and excellent value., if you cross the road and turn right as you come out of the hotel the Harvester is about a 2 min walk.
This hotel is not in the centre of Chester but not too far, you can walk into the city if the weather is nice along the canal or if you turn left out of the hotel around a 3 min walk away is a park and ride where you can catch a bus for £2 return for adults and free for kids, the buses are every 15 min or so but make sure you have the correct change for tickets as it is a machine and there is no attendant.
All in all a very nice hotel, helpful staff and good size clean rooms, we fell in love with Chester and will definately return sometime and would also look at staying here again if the price was right!
