4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had a 2 night stay in August 2014. Very quaint and cosy! The location is great as it is only minutes walk to the attractions bars and restaurants in Chester . We had room 12 which was certainly big enough and was very clean but basic. The floor was on a bit of a slant but was all part of... More

We were singing at the cathedral and chose this place to stay as it was within easy walking distance. The staff are very helpful and beer is brewed in the cellar. Our room was on the first floor and right at the end so we did not hear a lot of noise. It was small for two but we weren't... More

stayed here in late July, very pleasant and helpful staff, great food and ales. Great situation right in the middle of Chester with a reasonable parking rate, they were very accommodating when it came to getting our two motorcycles securely parked away from prying eyes. Comfy bed and very nice breakfast.

We paid a return visit to what was one of our favourite hotels on the return leg of a touring holiday. Things did not go well from the moment we checked in and our views on the standard of this hotel changed dramatically. At the time of our visit the town was in the middle of a heatwave, so we...

Myself & my husband spent I night at the pied bull and wish we could have stayed longer. If you want a generic room with all mod cons stay in a brand hotel. The pied bull is charming and quirky, the staff are incredibly friendly and the hotel is situated in a perfect position, close to all chester has to... More

This is an Old Coaching Inn offering a fine range of ales near to Chester 's main shopping areas and local attractions such as the Cathedral and City Walls. We were given room 4 which can only be described as a small unpleasant room at the rear of the building. The bathroom had not been cleaned (or even toilet flushed)... More

Booked 2 rooms direct with staff, spoke to very friendly chap called Luke who said after taking the booking if he could help any further just to let him know. We could only stay 1 night with our friends who were over from Australia which was very disappointing as we were then on our way to Wrexham. On arrival staff... More
