The hotel is currently being renovated, but don't let that put you off, The room I stayed in was completely refurbished, clean , new with tea/coffee facilities etc. Staff was very helpful ,friendly! Fantastic value for money. Will be staying here again next time I'm in the area!

Recently stayed here for one night after a concert at the live rooms, which is just around the corner. Refurbishment is happening at the hotel....however, this doesn't affect your stay. The rooms are A* and would definitely stay again :-) Great price and the staff/owner are very friendly and very helpful. If you're looking for a good stay...BOOK HERE!

Stayed here for one night last night with my partner for a concert at the Live Rooms. The site had free on site parking which we used but is only a five minute walk from Chester station. The owner was lovely and very welcoming and explained to us that it was currently under refurbishment and not quite finished. The room...

We came to Chester to do some Christmas shopping. We booked the hotel way back in April or May last year, and when we read the reviews on tripadvisor we where a little sceptical about going. We arrived yesterday to a very warm welcome from Baz he explained to us that he had taken over the hotel in June and...

Stayed here a few times now over the past years. So it`s Tudor style and not befitting the attention of a Tudor king but all the criticisms I may have are withheld. The future will see this Guesthouse refurbished to a three star hotel by the enthusiastic new owner. No doubt the cost of a sleep-over will be raised but...
