Stayed on the 19th July with the wife for a romantic one and had one of the entry level Caldecotte rooms for £120.00. I must say that compared to hotels in Manchester is was better value and offered better comfort than £200+ rooms. Restaurant food was good however they kept bringing me food for the table to our right which... More

Without doubt the location of this hotel is first rate, and we found the staff to be helpful and friendly. However, it's decor and design are an aquired taste. I have to say it felt quite cheap and tacky rather than 'quirky' but that is personal taste. We stayed in the modern block of rooms at the rear of the... More

Great place to stay, in the middle and close to everything. Some lovely food places I would recommend the Italian across the road but book in advance. When in arrival felt like me and my partner weren't as welcomed as we thought we would have been, felt like we should know where to go and what to do I had... More

My husband booked Oddfellows for our 1st anniversary, and I have to say he done me proud. The hotel is amazing, in all honestly this is probably the best I've ever stayed in. The rooms are massive, decor is quirky and the service is 5*. My only bug bear would be the breakfast, but that's because I'm fussy.

Stayed in Chester many times for business, and I would never chose anywhere except Oddfellows. Quality luxury boutique hotel at a reasonable price, every room has the same effort and level of class, service is attentive, and location is awesome. Nice touches: the Roberts radios playing classical music upon entering your room, and the back garden drinking/smoking area, amazing.

Arrived for a one night stay (forgot it was race night) staff were exceptional - special mention to the lovely receptionist who tried to sort out an problem for us that was nothing to do with the hotel and the barman who not only created cocktails but took the time to write down what he had done . Little touches... More

We stayed at Oddfellows for one night while in Chester recently, but were sorry we couldn't stay longer. This is one of the most beautifully designed hotels I have ever seen. So much attention has been paid to every detail. Our room was absolutely lovely and so was the restaurant, but my favourite space was the delightful cocktail bar. As... More

Lunch today could not have been more perfect. Cold wine, great snacky starters, amazing bread, lovely mains, smiling staff - perfect. No snobby behaviour from the staff. A gem. We sat in a booth outside and the atmosphere was great. Lots of nice people to brighten the place up as well!

My husband and I stayed at Oddfellows last week, and I wish we could have stayed there longer! I loved the beautiful details that were everywhere. We enjoyed several cocktails in the bar and had friendly service from the waitress. She even asked for feedback on my husband's martini on behalf of the bartender! The room was well-appointed and the... More
