My wife doesn't like lifts and we asked if we could have a room on the first floor. The receptionist kindly changed the room for us and we unpacked in room 107. After a...

Central location down town, within walking distance from all the shops, walking streets etc. No "early bird" breakfast, so don't plan on leaving the hotel early. No air conditioner and no minibar in the room. The hotel appeared to be a bit old, even though it had been modernized.

Absolutely fabulous hotel, very friendly and helpful, especially Alice our receptionist who was fantastic, the location of the hotel, was in the centre of Chester, with good shopping facilities, and of course a bus ride away from the famous designer outlets of Chester oaks.

I don't know who awarded this place with four stars ??? Could do with a total refurb. Don't want to be too unkind to the young staff that seemed to be running the place, but , I think they could do with some guidance.
