The bed is a king size and very comfortable. Seating in the room so as... More

We visited for a wedding reception and spent very little time in the room, which was a shame because it was lovely. Very modern, clean and comfortable with every amenity you would expect. The venue for the reception was spacious and well decorated. Bar service was good and the buffet food served late, nearly midnight, was excellent. We had burger... More

We had an amazing lunch at the Chester today. The food was brilliant and the service was spot on. We had a small baby with us and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Great value for money!

My myself and two friends visited for a bar lunch. When we entered it was really awkward as the staff behind the bar didn't say anything and we had to wait until a waitress came to attend to us. Service was really slow despite there being hardly anyone in, we waited quite a while to order and to be cleared.... More

Very friendly staff. Hotel has just been refurbished to a high standard. Hotel food is very good, but like most of Aberdeen on the expensive side. Would recommend the lamb. Quiet location, our of the city centre.

Staying in room 44, VERY noisy its near the stairs from bar to toilets. Have been in the room a couple of hours now, goodness knows what the noise will be like later on. Also no double glazing on window, noise from Queens Road.

A real missed opportunity to be an excellent eatery. Having had a very disappointing meal at the chester some time ago I wrote a very friendly letter suggesting improvements however, the letter was not acknowledged. I should be surprised but given the management style and service in-house, I'm not. Service is poor and particularly casual given the self proclaimed high... More

First stay at The Chester and will definitely be back. Room was modern and immaculate throughout. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Hadn't looked at this hotel before thinking it would be vastly overpriced but I got an excellent deal including breakfast and in comparison to Malmaison next door (which was more expensive) I think the rooms at the Chester are...
