Had a fantastic stay at the Oddfellows! The customer service from the staff was absolutely brilliant, they couldn't do enough for us. We had afternoon tea in the restaurant, for which I called ahead as we had a couple special dietary requirements, the place bent over backwards to accommodate this. We stayed in a suite which was absolutely kickin. Immaculately...

We stayed for one night, in room 1 (attic room with two baths!) Great room, tons of character. We also took advantage on the Wine and Dine Wednesday deal, which meant our meal in the restaurant was amazing value.

I booked the Douglas Duplex Suite for 2 nights during the week so it was quiet enough to feel as though we had the place to ourselves but still with a few other guests in the bar and restaurant. The hotel was amazing and has quirky decor (perfect for those instagram shots!) was perfectly clean and tidy at all times.....

On arrival didn't get told much about the actual hotel or explain the breakfast situation, when told a light breakfast was included you would expect more than a yoghurt and a apple in a paper bag, especially for the price of £175 a night! Bedroom decor was lovely, however was like being in a actual sauna, it was that hot...

Absolutely love this hotel! Quirky, modern and luxury! This is are second stay with the hotel and we would definitely return again! Complimentary breakfast of a light snack to start the day is so cute! All you have to do is fill in the paper bag and leave outside your door! The bar is lovely... the beer garden is even...

Had Sunday Lunch menu today with friends and family. 3 courses for £25 with a glass of Champagne. We were pleased to see that the menu was slightly more varied than last time we dined here - although the vegetarian options are still a little limited. Between us we sampled the chicken Caesar salad, pork rillets, roast sirloin, fish and...

This was a birthday meal with friends and overall we had a great time. But the meal portions were tiny and presentation is outdated and a bit pretentious. The starter of coronation chicken was 2 small pieces of chicken with 2 lettuce leaves and some dots of sauce, not what I was expecting and disappointing. My friends main of stone...

Just a drink before going for a bite to eat elsewhere. Large glass of wine and a larger shandy. Questioned size of large glass of wine. Told 250 ml. I had seen the barman pour straight from the bottle and not use the measure. Did not look large enough to me. Questioned it. Poured into measure and was significantly short....

We were served by the lovely staff who were very attentive without being overbearing and made sure everyone was topped up with prosecco, always a sign of great hosts! Then the food arrived, which I can only describe as little stacks of heaven! There was 12 of us in total and three stacked cake stands came out full of delicious...

We stayed here in October 2016 for one night. The hotel is located a stones throw form the centre of Chester and also the river. The room was well equipped with a roll top bath. There are double yellow lines outside the hotel so its a case of taking a chance when unloading bags etc. or parking a bit further...
