Stayed here last minute for a night in chester with hope of a shop around in the morning. Had cocktails before eating out else where.

Maybe a little more is required in the management of the restaurant where matters can be a bit hit and miss The smoked haddock florentine was nicely presented though the plates in particular the side dishes could have been hotter

Having stayed at other McDonalds hotels, this is a little disappointing. Booked through Booking.com a bit last minute for New Years Day Night. The room was ok in itself but accessing the compact and bijou bathroom was quite something so avoid room 119 and probably 118 and 120 too, Sat in the bar with only 2 other couples at 5.30...

Booked a family Afternoon tea just prior to Christmas, beautiful presentation with finger sandwiches and a selection of scones and cakes which were of excellent quality and we were served by a very accommodating member of the Hotel's team who was happy to replenish us with a fresh pot of tea and bring water for my grandchildren.

We booked the Christmas special with extra added days at the New Blossoms, and were not disappointed. It's not cheap but you do get more or less what you paid for. With only a few small tweaks this 4-star hotel could surely achieve a 5-star rating..... The pros - lovely friendly staff, one really shouldn't name names but I must...
