The very modern ABode was a great spot to break a journey between Gloucestershire and the Yorkshire Dales. Great, open-plan suite - parents and tweenager sharing - with elegant design, comfy beds, excellent service. Really well located, right next to the race course (prices can add ~50% during race weekends). WiFi a bit hit and miss in rooms. Great service... More

Visiting Chester in August we were impressed by the historic city offering a wide range of attractions. Would recommend the open top bus as a starter and then going back to visit the places of interest. On a lovely summers day the river was very attractive with a good range of eateries and ice cream seller. Historical sites like the... More

Reasonable size and comfortable room, ordered room service which was very good and tapas style, delivered within good time. only disappointment was that 2 of the pillows were not clean, apart from that the hotel is well situated with friendly staff.

Rooms are comfortable and very clean, but the service is poor. Staff needs to be better trained and understand what customer service means at this price of room! Do not try to book a cab through reception. Twice let down!

This is the second time we've visited + we would definitely go again when we see a special offer available. Our comfortable room was lovely, despite our reservation about a) 2 twin beds put together for a double aargh! b) beds possibly too soft for some? But no, all good including breakfast in the morning where both the food and... More

Good news: Hotel was modern and in brilliant position in Chester overlooking the Racecourse. Parking good. Bad news: However, hotel let itself down in many areas - On a four night stay the one tiny bottle of shampoo and one of body wash were replenished once with one bottle of hair conditioner and one minute bar of soap; likewise one...

We booked the Fabulous Suite or 2 nights. This was a last minute trip to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We had specifically booked this hotel as we had got some last minute tickets for Chester Races and this suite overlooked the course. My husband is waiting for a Heart Transplant and it is very difficult to plan in advance.... More
