We booked this hotel to take advantage of their Chester Zoo special offer, and we're very glad we did! The offer was two nights, with zoo tickets for two adults, plus a three-course meal on the first night and £10 to spend at the bar. When we did a few calculations, it was actually cheaper to take this offer and... More

Great service with a smile from everyone we bumped into. The room was comfortable and a great price through hotel.com. The breakfast could have been better is my only complaint. I had a poached egg that was made to perfection, and the sausage was top notch, but the plate seemed empty with no potatoes offered and since I turned down... More

The reception was very helpful & gave me a list of places I could contact. I arrived earlier than check in allowed so concierge took... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Macdonald hotel for one night. The staff were all helpful and friendly. We had breakfast in the morning which was included in our booking, fantastic food! It is in a great location just off the main street, although there isn't any parking there is a car park round the corner which was cheap,... More

Having just moved from one hotel of the Fawlty variety, this made a welcoming difference. And we arrived at Happy Hour for half-price cocktails. Just the start we needed for an evening of wall walking. This hotel, one of the oldest in town but full of 21st century comforts, is just a few yards from the clock tower entrance to... More

I took my partner here for some R&R. The hotel is located in the pedestrian zone in Chester centre and as such we couldn't find it at first due to road closed no access signs saying I couldn't go where the sat nav was sending me. Tell the wardens where you're going and they'll let you through the barriers. Checkin... More

Tiniest bathroom. Knees touch the bath when you sit on the loo. Toilet didn't flush. View of a brick wall from the window A bit like prison with nice sheets😳 cocktails £9.50 each. Dessert £8.50. Eat out!

We booked via Late Rooms and had a third floor room. The lift was rather small but understandably in a hotel that was built in 1605!!! The room was PERFECTLY clean and of an adequate size. There were the usual amenities but a lovely touch was a welcome plate with a chocolate, small cake and a strawberry. We chose not... More
