          • Couple
            9.6

            Very good location just a 5 min walk into centre. Decent rooms and breakfast and free on site parking was a massive bonus :-)

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Proximity to city centre and ease of parking

            Very limited cooked breakfast, beans, scrambled eggs and sausage every day

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The breakfast menu needs to be reviewed, there is not enough choice...

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            Pleasant rooms and facilites. Staff were helpful especially when this website messed up the booking and they found we had 1 room reserved for 2 nights instead of 2 rooms for 1 night! They found a room even though they were busy and supposedly full. Presumably someone else lost out.

            Booked.net let us down initially having messed up the booking; initially one member of staff was not particularly helpful at the hotel but the duty manager was very helpful and sorted out the problem.

          • Older travelers
            8.4

            The hotel was in a good location with free, convenient parking. The staff were kind and the room comfortable. The price was really good for what was available.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            good value, everything you needed, great location so near town and facilities, free car parking, helpful smiley staff, little extras showed thought ie hot beverages. We liked interconnecting doors- worked for us. Would stay again. Discounted Zoo tickets were brilliant.

            Breakfast was o.k. rather hit and miss according to timings and limited availability of certain items which was a shame. only just enough table spaces etc. Stain on duvet cover/ carpet of both rooms but we didn't complain.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            relaxed atmosphere, excellent service and accommodation.

          • Family with children
            5.0

            Very good location, easy walk into the city. Free parking

            Over priced for basic accomodation. You could not order Sunday newspaper from reception.

          • Couple
            7.0

            Location is very accessible to the town center, good housekeeping services, good breakfast.

            No restaurant within the hotel. You still need a reservation at the nearest 1539 restaurant even for lunch.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            It was clean and comfortable with very pleasant staff. The parking ideal and only a short walk into centre shopping area and river. Nice view from room over the racecourse.

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            Clean rooms and a nice breakfast included for the budget-friendly price. The free parking was also a bonus.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Ideal for Chester Marathon which was the purpose of the visit.Especially liked the City of Chester and hope to come again.

          • Couple
            7.8

            Locality, value and comfort of beds.

            Reception staff rather unwelcoming and never really available unless you go looking for them.

          • Couple
            6.2

            Onsite free parking and close proximity to the city centre.

            The beds weren't too comfortable and there was only two teabags (it's a hassle ringing reception for extra teabags). The lift was small and slow. The breakfast was very average and they ran out of bacon before 8.30am.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Easy parking and the hotel is very well run
