We stayed for 1 night, and I can honestly say it is the worst place we have ever stayed in! Filthy, mouldy bathroom, windows that didn't open, dirt and dust everywhere, couldn't get out quick enough in the morning. still having nightmares about this place!

accommodation itself was fine, although a little dated, the sign on entering said check in and chill out, unfortunately they forgot to mention the disco they had booked for that night. I have never in my 48 years on this planet heard such a volume of noise created by this dj . the vibrations alone must have cause tsunamis on... More

From a single female view Chester is safe to walk around and the area the pub in fine too. On arrival it was... More

We stayed for one night and were shocked on entering room. My husband pulled backed duvet to reveal the previous guests hairs in bed, stains, crumbs. So not clean sheets disgusting. Crumbs all over floor, previous guests receipts on unit, bit rubbish in bin, old water drinking bottle thrown and left at side of bed. We went straight out! Didn't... More

The gentleman who showed us round was polite however they did not have any central heating. Our room had a fan heater but it was too noisy to have on whilst we were sleeping and the window's were...

It's was just horrendous! Very poor value for money! I strongly advise the owners to have a good change and sort this out! Until then I... More

Do not stay here! No heat, I froze. Only heat was a small fan heater. Windows had holes in them. There was no cover on the duvet which was dirty. The room, hallway and shared bathroom were also dirty and seemed like a construction site! I was supposed to stay 2 nights but left for the hostel which was cleaner,... More
