“Good Hotel with pleasant staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2009

Just returned from a 3 day break 2 nights DBB & 1 night BB, the room was comfortable but not very spacious. The staff were excellent, pleasent, polite and made sure everything was to our liking. We had no problems with waiting any length of time in the restaurant as mentioned in previous comments.
It is approx 2.5 miles to the city centre we used a taxi one evening which cost £5. During the day the park & ride is the best way to get to the city as parking is quite expensive
We would certainly return to this hotel.

The hotel is offering good spa break deals at the moment including overnight stay, 3 course dinner, breakfast, light lunch and half an hour treatment in the spa plus free use of the pool, gym, sauna's etc all for just £75 each!!! Whilst this isnt a proper spa, the hotel is a good standard/ value and adequate for a short relaxing break. Plus Chester and Cheshire Oaks are within easy reach, so good to get some shopping/sight seeing in too! The food is high quality, the staff are helpul (although at times a little slow and too relaxed) and the treatments offered in the spa are also very good - in fact it is one of the best massages I have ever had (and I have had many). Highly recommended.

I booked this 2 night stay as a surprise for my wife's birthday and was disappointed to find a very dated and tatty double room, over priced food in the restaurant (serving frozen chips with their steak dinner) and a spa (sauna, steam room ets) that did not live up to the hotels description. We returned from an evening out on the saturday to enjoy a cocktail at the bar, only to be told they did not do cocktails- not what you expect from a 4* hotel. One the whole the staff were friendly and helpful, the location was good and my wife said the spa treatments she received were excellent. I would not return to this hotel but would highly recommend Chester as a weekend break, lovely restaurants and site to see aplenty.

Firstly the staff were good; the reception and restaurant area is pleasant enough.

We were travelling around England for a few days and chose to stay here as it is just outside Chester. The location is fine but when we got to our room all I can say is that there was not a single thing that was anything above disappointing.

The room had a strange smell.
The windows should have been removed 30 years ago.
The decoration was shabby.
The furniture was tatty and tired.
The TV was a set on the floor so only one person can see it.
The walls were paper thin (and I mean thin).

If I had not pre-paid via a third party then I would have left and taken my chances. I was there one night so it was bearable.

The frustrating part is that this is a 4 Star Hotel and a Best Western which I thought should represent a certain standard which as you will have gathered in my opinion this hotel fell well short of any such mark. I would advise you avoid this hotel which is massively overpriced for the standard and those cheap night travel hotels have a higher standard. I have stayed in other 4 star hotels in Chester and they are worth paying the extra if required to do so.

I am sorry to be so negative but on this occasion I see little choice.

Stayed 2 nights for Chester horse racing, £99 DB&B very good value. 2 miles outside Chester. Had a bit of trouble with noise from other thoughtless guests, but room was roomy & clean. Food in restaurant was average on the set menu,but nice. Piano player in the lounge on Saturday night made the evening more enjoyable. Leisure facilities were good, although the mens sauna & jacuzzi were not working. Would stay again.

Excellent Service, Excellent Room, Excellent Food - perfect weekend. Booked with Laterooms and was upgraded, got an excellent deal with bed breakfast and evening meal. Reception staff were lovely as were all the waiters/waitresses in the restaurant. Used the pool and facilities, good car park, good location for zoo and town - impressed and would definitely return.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2009

weve just got home from 2 nights here and had a lovely time. we booked on the morning we went through hotelsconnect cos they were cheapest and everything was fine - im always a bit dubious when we need a cot!
check in was quick and simple and the room we had was fine - plenty of space even with a cot. the pillows were nice and thick too which for me was fantastic! everything was really clean and tidy including the bathroom, which again was plenty big enough with a shower over the bath. and nice shower gel and handwash!
breakfast was great - plenty of fruit, cereal and toast you could help yourself to and a freshly cooked breakfast to order - the sausages were gorgeous!
the staff were always friendly and helpful and were quite happy to provide me with milk each night for my daughter, even offering to warm it.
we went swimming in the afternoon - it was really quiet, with a separate shallow toddler area. plenty of space to change a nosy toddler who wants to investigate at every opportunity too!
we visited chester zoo and the blue planet aquarium - both were about 10 minutes away and really easy to find. it was great to arrive at the zoo before it opened and be able to stay all day, knowing there was so little travelling! chester city centre was just as close but we didnt visit.
all in all a good hotel in a great location which we would definately stay in again.
