Spent 2 pleasant days at The Albion, during early August. It’s an original Victorian building that has retained its layout and is perfectly situated right next to the roman wall. The main bar rooms have been decorated in the style of the times and are filled with memorabilia from WW1. This unique combination creates a special atmosphere that you just won’t find anywhere else.
It advertises itself as child ‘hostile’ as children aren’t allowed on the premises, so expect a strictly adult clientele.
On arrival, the owners will issue you with a permit to park on the adjacent side street, but finding a space can sometimes be tricky
Our room was furnished in Victorian style, but with modern en-suite bathroom facilities. One small criticism was the lack of a TV; it’s not that we want to stay in watching it all day, but it’s nice to catch up with the news first thing in the morning. Nonetheless, that’s just a minor point.
Evening meals and breakfasts are superb and everything is perfectly cooked and served by hospitable and friendly host, Christina.
I highly recommend The Albion as a unique place to stay in Chester.
