The staff were exceptionally nice and helpful. Without going into a big story, they were all very nice and went out of their way to help, literally. The location was good, with great parking. The atmosphere was spot on friendly. I would stay there again without a moments hesitation.
There was initially a mix up with bookings however the staff dealt with this very efficiently and even upgraded us and provided us with a complimentary drink. The staff were very friendly.
The shower didn't work.
Location Friendly staff
Bed Noise level
Great staff, clean and central location with free parking.
Location in town centre: perfect for numerous eating places-and city walls! (Small) Car park on premises- Had small (portable) fan in room if hot- Continental breakfast: pleasant choices of food including croissants, muffins, large variety of yoghurts, choice of cereals, bread, fresh fruit etc-- Waitress very fast worker and helpful. Bar staff pleasant and friendly-
Bedroom lock was weak and woobly(I reckon could have been forced wih a big shove)--No kettle, not even papercups--In my room no paper basket/bin (though could have been an oversight as I noticed one in another room?)-Only mirror in bedroom is a large 5 ft square resting on FLOOR and against the wall at an angle, away from window: not ideal for putting make up on (taking over communal wc+bathroom mirror just for that delays other clients!)-- Corridors walls & woodwork overall very shabby!
Easy to locate on arriving in chester, close to centre able to park easily staff were friendly pleasent during stay
no english breakfast
Location was great. Staff were lovely and very accommodating. Breakfast was basic but good
Very poor bed quality, I had to put the spare quilt over the matress due to the springs. Had to share a bathroom and toilet with the rest of the hotel. Basic decor was very old woodchip and door did not lock easily to our LITTLE room
Staff made you feel most welcome
The location was excellent near all shops bars and restaurants. The bar at the hotel was good and spacious. The landlady was really down to earth and friendly. We booked a triple room for 3 persons for £50 that's roughly £17 each for night including a breakfast in the morning which was served by a lovely old lady! Breakfast was continental but non the less very nice. You won't find a cheaper room for the night including breakfast in any town in England
Mattress springy needs some new ones. Most things looking a bit tired but it was 17 quid a night so just go with it
excellent location- 2 minutes from city centre, and free parking, good pub and cheap drinks.
used half bottles of toiletries- advertised as complimentary, stained towels, the bed smelt slept in, toilet brush disgusting and level of cleanliness very poor, dust and dirt under the beds. Advertised as B&B - doesn't specify toast and cereals only.
Great 2 days, the landlady (Sharon) was great, had a really good sense of humour , had the best laugh with her, would recommend this hotel to anyone.Location was great couldn't have been any closer to the city centre.Meeting Sharon was one of the high lights of our trip to the uk from Australia.
The breakfast was extremely poor. Nothing cooked and hardly a thing to choose from. The hotel needs drastic refurbishment. Stayed in other much better hotels for a similar price.
Staff were nice.
DIRTY! Bathroom mould on curtains etc toilet was placed to close to wall and you can't sit down in the normal position you have to sit sideways lol but true !!!!!
Windows would not stay open and it was a very hot night
friendly staff, good bathroom
poor wifi, small bed, difficult to find from railway station
Staff very friendly, and helpful. room clean
Too many stairs. three flights to family room
Location very close to town
Hot small room, shabby bathroom with tatty towels with holes. Very out dated and needs good over hall
Central to town
Room filthy, Thick with dust, Toothpaste in sink and Holder, Dirty floor in bathroom, toilet unflushed,toilet seat not fixed on properly, towel stained, no hot water in the morning to shower.Cups dirty- kettle dusty. Had we thought we could get accommodation elsewhere that evening we would not have stayed.
Good location a five minute walk from the town centre.
Although we stayed midweek it was rather noisy - drunken revellers passing by in the early hours. The room was clean but the bed felt uncomfortable and lumpy, which didn't aid a good nights sleep. Although we booked via booking.com at a discounted rate, the member of staff on reception asked usto pay the full price. To remedy this I actually had to physically show them the booking confirmation email. Check out time is early at 10.00 a.m as opposed to the more standard 11.00. Breakfast was rather basic. I asked to take a tray up to the room with breakfast for my partner - this was definitely frowned upon. Generally a very poor experience....I won't be staying again and I certainly wouldn't recommend.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was nice with everything we needed for our overnight stay. Location ideal for getting into the city centre. Would stay there again if going to Chester again.
No real ale available
Great Location, staff were friendly and very cheap.
Walls were thin so could hear everything going on. With being central location you could hear the drunks outside.
Had to wait as I was overbooked and they were "full" apparently, even though i'd already pre booked. Rude staff, animals, hotel owner & friends keeping me awake until 2.30am on a Sunday night chatting and giggling below. 5 minutes late for breakfast and a look of disgust from the cleaner, maid, chef. Overall not a very nice experience.
Friendly enough staff. Clean bed linen.
No warm water throughout stay. No free toiletries as advertised. Sash windows don't work. Bedroom dusty. Very dated decor. Continental breakfast very average. More like a hostel, £40 would have been fair.
Staff excellent. Especially Sharon. Best landlady.
