Fabulous 8.6 From 1,236 reviews

Very good 8.0
Nice clean hotel and well situated for getting to the town centre with secure parking. Just a couple of niggles. The pillows were not very comfortable one was very lumpy and also the radiator in room was not on/working so the room was quite cold in the morning. We used the electric heater provided but this did not really heat the room very well. Breakfast was a little disorganised we only wanted continental and provided our written order and arrived at the booked time as requested but items still didn’t arrive at the table and we had to ask a couple of times for our drinks and the rest of our order. We did not appear to be the only table having issues and the waitress did not know the table numbers although it would of helped her if these were visible and not just a tiny piece of laminated paper on the table.

Fair 4.0
Very poorly maintained room, room itself small and uncomfortable with low ceiling and cramped feel to it. Staff were very pleasant and courteous tho.

A bit disappointed
Nice hotel with good parking at a price. Good restaurant and bar with reasonable prices. The double room was a bit small but comfortable. We were disappointed that the bed and bathroom were not cleaned during our stay, the heating and phone were also broken. We paid extra to be able to use the spa but found out the steam room jacuzzi and sauna were out of action. Lastly it was bad that hotel residents are not allowed to use the showers and changing rooms but gym members could. Overall a bit disappointed

Weekend stay for family
Excellent location for Chester centre and on the canal. Parking £7.50 per day not bad but the extra charge of £5 per hour if you need longer on checkout is a bit over the top. We were supplied with a baby travel cot as requested however it had no mattress. Spoke to reception and they said that is how they come. We had to stuff towels into a cot sheet to make it comfortable for the baby. The following day we saw a baby mattress outside a room being cleaned so asked the cleaner for one and literally less than 5 minutes later a clean mattress arrived. One of our party requested a dairy free breakfast which on the first morning came without an egg. When we asked the waitress why she said they cooked the fried eggs in butter (never have I heard of this before). The following morning the same dairy free breakfast appeared with a fried egg and we questioned the waiter about this explaining the previous mornings comments and he assured us the eggs were cooked in olive oil. apart from these 2 problems we had a lovely stay, I found the beds really comfy (however I do like a hard mattress). Covid restrictions were in place although some of the guests chose to ignore them.

Good place to stay
Enjoyable stay, found the hotel to be in a good location to make the most of the city. Friendly staff, nothing to much trouble, breakfast was plentiful and tasty, was to sure about chips for breakfast, but a twist on the normal. Nice bar area with a view of the canal. Already thinking of returning in the near future. Parking was good, but has a small fee per day. Many thanks to the mill, ideal place to stay for a break in chester.

Good hotel
Great hotel, great staff and great measures in place for COVID19 felt safe at all times. Disappointing couldn’t get booked into spa but understandable under the circumstances. Would definitely recommend this hotel to any one looking for a stay in Chester close to the centre
