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

Went for dinner on Saturday and were lucky to get a table at short notice. Usually not a fan of formal "white table cloth" dining but the food was all excellent, a bit much of the menu was dedicated to steak for my liking but ideal if that's what you like. We never went long without a drink and the... 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!
