Chester Town House

Reviewed 13 May 2017 via mobile

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!

Excellent location for visiting Chester. Rooms are on the small side and could do with more attention to detail regarding cleanliness and room touches ! Breakfast was really good ! Price was expensive compared to other bed and breakfasts we have visited but obviously paying for location rather than facilities.

Great location inside the city wall. Car park at the end of the road then straight over the cross road. We were made to feel really welcome. We were leant a couple of chairs when we went to the outdoor cinema. Surprised at some of the recent comments for the price and age of the building it was really good. Breakfast was good as well. Only shame is the owner said she was retiring so get in there quick!

I stayed for just one night in the "cottage". Very cramped and in serious need of a good clean. Had to go to the main house to pick up wifi. On positive side, very quiet so did get a good night's sleep and the lady owner was very helpful. Breakfast was delicious, freshly cooked to order.
