“A three day stay weekday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Our stay at the Mill hotel was very pleasant ,it is a very vibrant hotel ,friendly and helpful staff. Plenty of free car parking (always a bonus with town hotels) The restaurant is a gem very nice food and extremely slick service. The real ale bar is well priced with plenty of choice. My one downer was the advertising screens in the restaurant , but that wouldn't stop me from staying again.

Room Tip: If you like bigger bedroom go for an upgrade the cost is minimal.

Recently stayed at the hotel from Friday - Sunday. Although as previous guests have pointed out, the decor was dated and one side of the hotel was next to a busy road and the shower was difficult to adjust the hotel did have a lot going for it. It's centrally located, clean, friendly and helpful staff, good entertainment and food and a great gym and spa - there are not many in this price range that could tick all these boxes - we would defiantly go again - thank you

We stayed here recently for the Chester Marathon and it was great. It is very centrally located and the staff are brilliant. We arrived late evening and the hotel was already extremely busy, yet they still found space for 12 of us to eat together and the food was good, something for everyone.

The car parking is a bit of a nightmare and it feels a bit grotty when you arrive, but it is only a car park.

The hotel rooms are basic, 3 star rooms and very dated, but you get what you pay for. The beds are comfortable though.

The very best part of the hotel is definitely the staff, nothing was too much trouble, they are helpful, friendly and make you feel very welcome.

The best things about this hotel were the price, location and swimming pool. Within easy walking distance to the town centre which was great and the free car park meant that we could leave the car safe. The swimming pool again was free to use as a hotel guest. The only thing that we found was that the hotel is in need of some updating. The décor is old fashioned in the bedrooms, corridoors and the breakfast room. The room was plenty big enough and clean however you couldn't get to the toilet without closing the bathroom door and it was very dark. I wouldn't choose this hotel if I was looking for a luxury weekend away however for a couple of nights it was reasonably priced for the facilities.

I've stayed at the Mill Hotel & Spa a number of times on short business trips. It is well run, clean and is excellent value with gym, pool, good bar food and restaurant all in a scenic setting. It is a 10 minute walk from the station and 15 mins to the centre of town, and a free car park is available. There are a number of othe pubs and restuarants nearby for variety. Occasionally there is live jazz music in the bar which is a good place to watch football on Sky as well. Bar has a very wide range of beers with regular guest appearances. The rooms do differ (as does the price) and generally choose the cheapest but if very hot please note these lack air conditioning.

Spent one night in the hotel. It is a throw back to the 80s - decor is sad and faded. Really needs a good spruce up. As the double bed was just about a double and as the room overlooked a dual carraigeway, a good night's sleep was not had.Television only had one clear working channel and when I picked up the remote for the first time, the batteries fell out. Still, it is relatively inexpensive and breakfast was excellent.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room overlooking the dirty brown watered canal and the dual carraigeway.

Stayed two nights in a business class room, very spacious and comfortable overlooking the canal. Had dinner on first night, tasty food, good portions and good service, also has a real ale bar with fair prices. Used spa area on both days, nice facilities, also had a beauty treatment and it was excellent and very relaxing, my therapist was lovely. Overall, enjoyed our stay, all the staff are lovely and helpful, this is our third time and we will keep going back. It's only a short walk to the main shopping street and to other pubs and restaurants.
