“Get what you pay for”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Stayed with my father in the twin room and window was broken - March, and was cold. Milk was gone off on the tea and coffee tray, rubbish was left in the bedside drawer from the last persons that stayed there was we discovered there was no bin in the room or bathroom? Old building and could here all movements of the persons staying above us. Breakfast was basic but nice - cereals, tea/coffee/juice, toasts, ham and cheese, spreads. Owners were lovely and welcoming but like I said, we got what we paid for.

Room Tip: Don't book the twin room!

We booked this hotel for the 31st May for three couples from my Family, varying ages 24- 50, so that we could all have a family day out at the races. We booked three rooms in January looking forward to a family adult day out. I was told today 21st May via email that they could not accept a group booking due to previous disturbances upsetting guests and that they would be cancelling the booking. They stated that on the website it was clear regarding group booking and late rooms were aware of the group booking policy, whom we booked the rooms through.

We booked via telephone through Late rooms with no mention of the "group booking policy" also having scoured the website I am unable to find the policy to which they refer. We are now left with race tickets and no accomodation, with the rest of Chester being booked up, turning our family day out into a BIG problem.

Having tried to rebook Latymer using three seperate bookings it is now full. I suspect a double booking has occured and perhaps the new successful guests paying more, Latymer giving us this as an excuse.

Thankyou for potentially ruining our trip even before it has begun.

Friendly welcome and good car park , but that's as good as it gets . No heating , couldn't sleep it was so cold ! Uncomfortable bed with flat pillows. Breakfast was half there - cereal but no milk , jam and butter but no bread , juice but no glass etc. etc., found another place near hand for the remainder of trip !

Stayed April 2013, travelled on business

stayed for 3 weeks [working local] room very comfortable and clean, i was in room 1, i did not bother with breakfast because of early start but toast and cereal where available if required,this is not a hotel but a guesthouse so for the price you will not in my opinion go far wrong,the area has a good selection of take aways and 3 pubs with asda a 2 min. walk away ,chester city center and race course a 25 min.stroll away, louise our host a gem ,nothing was too much trouble ,pointed us in all the right directions for food and drink ,will definitely look to stay at the latymer when visiting or working in chester again

Quite cheap accommodation in many ways- but I wasn't bothered since it was only a place to sleep and nothing else.
You have to pay cash when staying here-so be aware of this.
The owner was as others have mentioned very friendly and helpful faultless.
There was no tea and coffee in the room- so take your own- there is a kettle. Never made breakfast so cannot really comment upon this, simply got up, washed and went! Talking of which the shower cubicle was slightly on the small side.
The place is convenient for Chester and therefore very handy when you are able to leave the car here at no extra cost etc.
I wish the owners well!
