Good 6.0
For the price of the room, this was disappointing. The room was a little tired and average compared to other hotels I have stayed in for a similar price. The breakfast hamper to the room was lovely but no table to eat it on. The bathroom was tired, dusty and luke warm water.

Good stay, friendly stafg
Great stay, and local to all attractions, staff very friendly, only grip is the parking, hard to get on their car park, as not many spaces, and found it abit pricey per night, but the car was secure, there is a car park close by if the hotel parking is not available

Great night away
Night away in Chester. Hotel in a great location, short walk to the centre. Hotel staff were excellent. So helpful and friendly. Love Abode hotels. Must say Chester is not as nice as the Glasgow one, a lot less character and shames the restaurant and bar wasn't open but couldn't be helped. Great nonetheless. Thanks!

Fair 4.0
Great location disappointing room
Originally from the Chester area I was really looking forward to staying in Abode. The reception staff were really friendly and helpful, the location is fantastic for visiting the city and the racecourse, the room had nice views. The breakfast which is left outside the door in a wicker basket was delicious. However, the room itself was incredibly disappointing. We had chosen to pay a bit more for an enviable room, so when we first walked in we thought we'd been given a standard room in error and spent the first 10 mins trying to work out what had gone wrong. There was nothing enviable about it, I have stayed in Premier Inn rooms that have a more premium feel. It felt shoddy, like it was in need of a refurb, the grubby and marked wood floors contribute to this overall impression. The bed was two singles pushed together, a dip in the middle of the bed. Such a disappointment. The other problem is the very limited parking. With the car park full, the lovely receptionist suggested the Roodee car park but we weren't comfortable leaving our car there overnight. 20 mins later we managed to find a car park at the racecourse with security we could park overnight for £10 which meant at least we didn't have to worry. It's a good 10 min walk from the hotel. So in summary despite the location and the really lovely staff the inconvenient lack of parking and the unenviable room we felt it was poor value for money and the overall impression was disappointing. Sadly we won't be back.

Stay with friend here, twice a year summer and christmas 2 night stay. No complaints, other than did try breakfast in restaurant one year but was disappointed. Staff always friendly and helpful. Other than one occasion with reception staff in arrival. But not on this trip. Have recommended to friends who have stayed and woykd return.

Great location & spacious room; poor cleanliness
Reception staff were welcoming and helpful. The room was spacious with a generous bathroom and excellent quality beds. The location of the hotel was excellent! While the hotel carpark was full, there was another outdoor carpark available a few minutes' walk away. Under the current circumstances, however, I would have expected a better standard of cleanliness - there were fingerprint marks on the shower door, a stain on one of the towels and the phone was filthy (I took a dettol wipe to it to remove the yellow scum between the keys!) A continental breakfast was delivered to the door in a hamper as the restaurant was closed - this was lovely with plenty of choice.

Poor 2.0
Why bother re-opening!
Somewhat overpriced. Restaurant was closed, bar was closed and no hot breakfast. Not sure why they bothered opening the hotel. We had paid for a hot breakfast even though we only got a picnic box and cornflakes which arrived late the next morning. Booked a family room but they forget to put the roll out beds out! So we had to leave the room due to COVID while they sorted this. Every other hotel we stayed at the same week had all facilities open. Must be better places to go in Chester

Fantastic Suite.
Another amazing staycation at the Abode Chester. Loved the Suite. Very clean. Felt very reassured with the additional steps taken to keep guests and staff safe. Loved the breakfast hamper in the room. Helped make our stay all the more special. Thank you for a memorable stay.
