I attended a function with some trepidation but it could not have been more enjoyable . Food was great -even when catering for over 200 which is some feat. Staff were fantastic--plenty of them , well trained and very helpful. The function room is separate from the main hotel with excellent toilet facilities and very well appointed. Will be back...

We really enjoyed our stay at The Chester Hotel. The front desk staff was absolutely fabulous and our room was very cozy. I had a lot of great chats with the front desk clerk named Linda. I do hope she's still there, she answered all my crazy first-time oversees silly questions and never once made me feel they were silly.

Made a restaurant booking but was advised by others to change to a bar booking but not to sit in a a booth location. Did that and had a call to confirm a table near the fire but when we turned up we were placed in a booth. Eventually we were given a table within the bar and given free... More

A beautifully furnished hotel just a 5 minute taxi ride from the town centre. Recently refurbished and the rooms are very cosy. Nespresso machines in every room. The restaurant is fabulous with a wide variation of tasty meals. Super breakfast choice with continental buffet, warm buffet and a choice from the menu including omelettes and great porridge. Alternatively in the... More

The hotel entrance looked impressive lit up at night. We had a pre dinner drink in the bar area (which is quite small) but it wasn't too busy, then we moved up into the restaurant. There are booths next to the bar where you can also have food. We sat near the front of the restaurant on the first level... More

Hotel is beautiful, lovely beds and Nespresso machines in room. All the staff members I spoke to were very friendly yet professional and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. My husband was on a training course and I unfortunately had laryngitis so we arranged a late check out which the hotel were only too... More

Rooms are of good size, loved the bed/pilows/bedding and I am quite fussy with these, not too hot or too cold!!! food was great and above all the personnel... More

It was such a pleasure to stay here! No expense was spared with this multi million pound refurbishment. A warm welcome by friendly reception staff who could not have been more helpful. My room was large and beautifully appointed. Big bathroom with a big bath and power shower. All the modern cons that you need in the room and a... More

We stayed at the Chester on 31 Jan. We were trying it out as an alternative to the Malmaison where we normally stay. The room was small but with enough space for a 1 or 2 night stay and the bathroom was reasonably well appointed. The shower in the bath is not ideal but to be fair it was excellent... More
