Christmas shopping break away
Where do you start, WiFi was poor/ no reception for best part, music supposed to finish at 1am, didn’t till 2, walking through people’s sick in front of the hotel, hairdryer had a 2pin plug, breakfast included when booking and hotel changed policy, shower door Handle loose and hanging off. Not easy to identify staff as mostly busy on the bar We like to support local business rather than the chain hotels.

Friendly staff, room clean and well presented. Can't fault the hotel for anything. We were warned of possible noise from the DJ on arrival for the Friday night but the DJ had finished when we got back at 2.20am so no problems with that.

Wonderful place to stay in the heart of Chester. Sights, shopping, market are all within walking distance of this hotel. Yes, there is a bar on the main level where you can get drinks, play some pool and mingle with the locals or other guests, something that we enjoyed. We had NO issues whatsoever with noise level. Wi-fi seems to only work in the lobby but it was a perfect excuse for us to go down to the bar and get a drink and mingle. There is a restaurant right next door that offers great service and food if you do not want to venture too far for drinks or a place to eat. Our room was roomy, spotless and bathroom had heated floors. Staff were amazing during the duration of our stay! We had an early train out to Gatwick on Good Friday and staff came in early to make us breakfast! We would definitely stay here again.

clean but loud.
Rooms very good very modern and spotlessly clean. The only problem was the noise from the bar next door the music was ridiculously loud until 3am both Friday and Saturday night we definitely wouldn't stay again because of that reason.

An experience
The hotel room we had was very nice and larger then we expected. We did stay here over the weekend however and thought that maybe the live entertainments might not be so loud depending on where our room is located.....turns out our room was directly above it so if you can manage with vibrating walls and bouncing up and down as you sit on the toilet then this place might be for you, other option is stay in town drinking until 3am =D
