This is a good hotel within walking distance to the centre. The rooms are dated and for the price really need some money spending on them. Parking is fairly limited so we were given a key to park in a locked parking area at the side of the hotel.

Good location but overall very average hotel. Family room very cramped. Very warm and stuffy room . No AC or fans! Small pokey bathroom. Lights in bathroom not working. Reception staff friendly. Restaurant staff at breakfast need to cheer up. No welcome or good morning on arrival at breakfast. Good gym facilities but overall unsatisfactory. Needs more signposting for car... More

I've stayed in the mill hotel.. Many times on business .. Staff are friendly and gym and spa are good .. The only thing that let's it down is the rooms .. I would say it depends on what floor you stay on .. But business class rooms are all different.

The Mill is a very nice hotel ideally located for the centre of Chester, a walk from the train station. The use of old buildings and modern fittings spanning the canal make for a very attractive building, unfortunately there are some aspects that let it down. There is free parking on offer but you need to time it right, when... More

Stayed in a Club Class Room. Carpet had numerous stains (one sticky!!) on it in front of dressing table and around bin from teabags. One of the bedside lamps was at an angle as the mechanism had broken away from the base and didn't work. Terrible lighting generally to do makeup etc. Reception area tired and the female Receptionist seemed... More

Use the Mill Hotel every time we stop in Chester. From the minute you arrive you are greeted with a warm welcome from friendly staff. Reservations are always helpful at pre arranging your accommodation to suit your needs. Rooms with views over the canal and close to the gymnasium and swimming pool are available. These are nice and quiet away... More

Firstly excellent location if you want walking access into chester city centre. Rooms are small, but adequate. However, they are very warm and lack any attention to detail. The spa was smelly! There was tissue all over the floor, it smelt of sweat, and it was far too busy! I would say it's a local health club more than a... More
