“Return Visit”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

We stayed for one night on our way to visit friends. The room was better equipped with chairs tables TV, bedside tables etc than either a Travelodge or a premier inn. The beds were comfortable and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was a little tired and needed decorating.. Coffee and tea making facilities good. We did not have a meal in the restaurant although the menu seemed quite reasonably priced.. The location of the hotel was ideal for visiting Chester or Wrexham and parking facilities good. The rooms are separate from the hotel more like a motel . Although fully booked we were not disturbed by noise or traffic noise. Will use this hotel whenever we visit the area again

After needing a room at short notice and with travelodge and premier inn and the like being booked up, we decided to stay here, well I would of rather of slept in my car
The room was tired and dated there carpet looked like it had been there for years on end, there was cobwebs all over the place and coffee spillage stains all down the built in cupboard and bedside drawers. and upon opening one of the drawers there was mouse droppings all inside it!! The television was constantly losing signal and was a very tiny tv so could hardly see it from the bed! Talking of the bed it would of been comfier sleeping on a bed of nails!
The bathroom was dirty and mouldy, the bath panel was hanging off the bath and the toilet seat was dirty as well, shower screen was full of mould and mildew at the bottom and quite obviously hadnt been cleaned properly for quite some time
The staff werent all that friendly when we arrived basically taking my payment for the room and tryed to explain where the room was, never being here before actually taking us outside and showing us would of been better!
We didnt eat or drink at the pub so cannot comment on the food
Certainly wont be staying here again

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel lol

As another reviewer has more or less said, the quaint, friendly pub where you check in (a former coaching inn) raises hope that are quickly dashed as soon as you get to your room.

Basically, the accommodation is in two annexes built or converted in the 1980s, which have apparently not been touched since. Our room had a shabby carpet, patched with gaffer tape, and equally tired-looking furniture. The bathroom, complete with feebly dribbling Mira shower and basin plug with snapped chain, presented a similarly jaded appearance.

Breakfast was OK - one sausage, one bacon rasher, one egg, etc - you get the picture. However, like (I suspect) the majority of people on a weekend away, I personally would have preferred proper coffee in the morning, rather Nescafe sachets and a hot-water geyser, and a choice of juices would have been nice.

At £59 per night including breakfast, this was not expensive, but then neither is your local Travelodge, which is at least normally less delapidated.

In short, come here for a cheap stay, but don't expect country-inn ambience.

Reviewed 3 July 2011

we have just returned from a coupleof nights round chester and stayed the saturday night at the trevor arms. to be honest i booked it on late rooms asit was one of the cheapest and had availability as there was a festival on in chester and a lot of the hotels were booked up.
i wasnt expecting much given the reviews on here but i was pleasantly surprised.
the staff were all very friendly and welcoming as were the locals in the bar. the room was in an annexe and although there was no view from the window (a bit of a dumping ground for old outside furniture etc) it was spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. the bathroom was a little tired but again clean and had a very good shower. the bed was comfy and we slept much better than the previous night in a travelodge. the tv had freeview which was a bonus.
we ate in the pub restaurant having booked a table on arrival and had a lovely meal with drinks for under £20 my husband had the lamb biryani and i had steak and kidney pie which we were reassuringly informed needed half an hours notice. both meals were mouth wateringly good and were served in their very attractive restaurant with excellent service from their friendly staff.
breakfast was full english and really really good compliments to the chef!
in short we will stay there again if we are down that way.
we only paid £55 for bed and breakfast and i cant imagine what other reviewers think they can get for the money. we have stayed in a lot of more expensive places that have been alot lot worse than the trevor arms.

Room Tip: get upstairs room. noisy early risers

Reviewed 22 September 2010

This is architecturally a fascinating pub / hotel set in a very unusual and attractive village. The pub was clean and had a friendly atmosphere from the locals. The ale was good and the food was excellent. The bar staff were friendly but the waiting staff were not. We never had a hint of a smile from the girl who served the food or indeed any friendly chat.
Strangely this place shuts at 9.00 pm on a Sunday night. We were warned of this before we booked and were told it is because it is so quiet on Sunday evenings. On the night we stayed though there were good numbers of customers in the pub at closing time. It was when we found our rooms that we got a shock. The rooms were shabby and needed cleaning. My duvet cover was stained and the matress seemed about 3 inches thick so it was like sleeping on the bare boards of the divan. These rooms looked nothing like the ones advertised on their website so be warned. Just to confuse matters breakfast in the morning was excellent.

Checked in early, hit by strong smell of air freshener/'shake & vac', but warm day so opened door and windows to help clear it. After 30 mins in room at night, however, realised the overpowering smell - almost a taste - meant there was no way we could spend a whole night there.
Approached manager in a reasonable way, but just got excuses: 'never had complaint' (he didn't even bother to see the room). Offered another room but told air freshener was used in all rooms. By now it was 11.30pm, we decided to drive 90 miles home rather than endure this. Informed that full charge would apply, I said that I was trying to be fair, but that this was unreasonable. Ended up paying £30 just to get away from the place.
