Whilst I acknowledge hotel prices in Chester are artificially high when the races are on Chester Town house leaves a bitter taste after sounding over £300 for two nights stay
There is no parking or set down so overnight parking is suggested in a NCP about 150m meters up the hill at a further £40 for two nights
Upon arriving the Hotel offers a very striking Georgian facade
It's down hill from here
Struggling from the carpark with the remnants of two weeks on the road and was greeted a set of very steep steps
Upon arriving at a desk I presumed was reception I deposited my bags called for assistance and eventually a member of staff finally came to my aid
Checking in I offered the keys to my room and some directions that sounded as if I was being guided to the North Face of the Eiger!
I requested help with one of my three bags and the receptionist lead the way.
Up , down, up again via very tight stair cases I was struck by the complete deficit of any of the exterior beautiful Georgian features exhibited on buildings facade
Veneered panelled doors added nothing to the buildings beauty
Upon arrival at room eighteen I was shown a featureless room devoid of any character
Looking around for a light switch revelled the only lighting was Floor mounted or on bedside tables
Drawing back the curtains to peruse the beautiful view of the ancient city of Chester I was greeted by a dinghy black shed and somebody else's carpark .
Venturing into the bathroom ( a obvious pod defacing the lost Georgian splendour of this building)
I was greeted by a tiny sink, minuscule broken shower cubicle and unflushed toilet
Terrible, seldom have I stayed in such a disappointing over priced location.
Deserves no custom!
