On a very wet n windy day we got invited to this hotel restaurant for a business lunch after our corporate meeting, didnt expect much fun usually from this sort of event but it had turned out to be a very nice surprise. The restaurant looks newly refurbished, chic n has a modern setting in this elegant hotel. The menu... More

I was here as a guest for a wedding, the hotel was lovely. We stayed in a brand new room (1st guests) in the new wedding venue block. The hotel was lovely with all the lovely touches you could imagine. Only issue was it is patio doors onto a public walk way so you can't really open them and so... More

This was our first overnight stay at The Chester since our wedding reception there and we were certainly not disappointed. We were given a very warm welcome on our arrival. Our room was faultlessly clean and very comfortable with every amenity that you could wish for. Bed very comfortable and nice quiet room. We had dinner in one of the... More

Loved the tea menu, champagne amuse-bouche and generous but dainty selection of sandwiches, scones & cakes for our family birthday celebration. Excellent, friendly service in a smart, chic setting. Thanks!

Absolutely lovely bar meal with friends. The decor and atmosphere were brilliant and the staff were attentive without being overwhelming. They were there when you needed them and happy to help with our requests. Overall, I was very impressed and will be returning very soon.

Another lucky draw for me and a colleague after being unable to go offshore due to weather. The Chester oozes class, beautiful and elegant monochrome decor, the elegantly dressed staffs outfits reflecting the colour scheme. The rooms are beautiful, quiet, comfortable, sumptuous, iTV's, nespresso machines, all with the same quality design and colour scheme. We ate in the bar in... More

From the minute we walked into the Chester Hotel for a wedding celebration yesterday until we left the evening reception the only words to express the whole event ...WOW. The venue is beautiful, the food was amazing, staff and service was spot on and it was an amazing and enjoyable time. We didn't stay in the hotel but will be... More

Denise, events manager, was so helpful in organising my daughters graduation dinner. Restaurant manager and her team were quietly efficient. Food was superb and I do not recognise any of the criticisms which previous trip advisor reviewers have made of this hotel. The chef, of his own volition, made a lovely mortar board chocolate desert which was brought to my... More

What can I say, WOW....just WOW. Since the re open the place just looks amazing! Drinks list is spot on, food amazing... but the thing that really sets it apart was the service. Not too in your face, but always there! Top marks to the management team - you have done very very well with this! Didn't stay in hotel,... More
