we were welcomed at the door by the owner, very friendly guy, who showed us to our rooms upstairs telling us to ignore the state of the reception as it is being redone with plans to finish next year, the room was nice and warm (lovely as it was freezing weather when we arrived) the beds are super comfy and...

Shabby reception does not give the best first impression. Rooms are basic, the tv is located behind the headboard of the bed so difficult to watch. Owner wanted extra money to store our cases for an hour on the day if departure. Not somewhere we would stay again.

Staff were lovely and really helpful. The room was clean and tidy and the bed was really comfortable. The only down side was there was no mirror in the bedroom but I would definitely recommend this hotel

I booked a night at the Ormonde guest house as I was working in Chester and needed to be close to the train station. When I walked in around 3,30pm, I couldn't believe how bare the place was. A man asked me my name told me “that's £40” then took me to my single room. The door had been kicked... More

We visited the ormonde last year before the refurb... The owner told us of his plans.. So we gave it another chance.. Wow! What a transformation...only - is he didn't have our booking? Despite 10 emails.. We were swiftly given two rooms (a single and a double) instead of the twin room we had booked for the first night until... More

Single room was modern and well funished/spotlessly clean/bed was amazingly comfortable and literally a stones throw from Chester Train Station and "The Live Rooms" venue. Owner was very friendly and quite dishy. Only downside was they didn't offer breakfast but there is a lovely little cafe right opposite. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone... More

We were shown to our room and we were delighted with the cleanliness and how well decorated and equipped it was. It had all we needed for the 1 night stay. TV, clean bathroom, comfy bed, tea making... More

Stayed for 1 night with my partner in July. Before arriving I contacted the hotel regarding an early check in, I received a very prompt reply and my request was carried out.
