Stayed 21-24th July whilst attending a course held in the hotel. A bit tired looking in places but spotlessly clean and staff very friendly and helpful. Special mention to Mark the bar supervisor, a more attentive and friendly hospitality professional I've yet meet. Food was very good though opted for bar meals so not sure if restaurant is much different... More

My wife and I made a reservation as we were going to Chester Races for the day. On arrival we saw some friends in the hotel bar, so why my wife spoke to them I checked in. The check in was speedy and the receptionist was very polite and professional, even recognising that I am a IHG Member. The building... More

I liked the bar service here and the staff were very helpful, Hayley on the front desk was particularly helpful in sorting out my WiFi woes. Food is also pretty good. The thing that lets the hotel down isthe poor state of repair (it's not as slick as most Holiday Inn's and could do with a refurb) and the gym... More

The outside looks awful! So much so that we were going to turn around and leave without going in! But inside is a different story . It's a lovely little hotel. The bar area is lovely and they have a small Starbucks in there as well. They automatically add 10% service charge to bills which I think is a bit... More

From the outside looks a bit drab Staff were all polite helpful and efficient Rooms clean tidy and presentable, albeit showing signs of age. The door was a bit tight, reported on checkout as not a big issue Eat in the restaurant first night, the young lady serving us was cheery polite, and of good humour, and enjoyed a chat... More

Well situated hotel very close to the A55, but no disturbance from passing traffic. Check in was fast and friendly. Allocated room on ground floor quite a walk away from reception. Noticed that some of the flooring sounded like hardboard along the corridor. The room was clean, but not the mugs in the room. Good internet strength (free). Unfortunately I... More

This was the dearest place for Wifi that we found in our UK travels. Just outrageous! It was several miles from town, so you could not use neighboring places for Wifi - there were none. Apart from this, the room was clean and the food good, particularly in the downstairs bar area.

I have been staying here for busines over the last few months, the hotel meets all the requiremetns for staying whilst travelling - food is good, rooms are clean and the staff are friendly. The hotel is about 3 miles south of chester so it is not great if you want to stay close to the town center.

We had a great stay here with my step son and godson. They loved their little bunk beds and the black out shutters. Their favourite thing though was the pancake machine at breakfast The hotel is lovely and breakfast is amazing, the only criticism is the price of the wifi as there was hardly a signal for us on EE....
