We have just returned from a 2 night stay here in August. Having recently had a Premier Inn family room it was a pleasure to stay in a family room that actually had space for a family! There was lots of room to move about and the beds were great. I'd give 5* for this aspect alone. We ate in... More

Booked overnight stay to celebrate my mum's 70th birthday. Had two treatments at the spa which we both enjoyed. Then a delicious dinner at the hotel which was four star prices but it was an extra special occasion. Breakfast was also good and the first hotel I have ever stayed in that had skimmed milk as well as semi-skimmed. I... More

Hotel is very well posotioned for Chester and The Wirral. Rooms although spacious are very dated and also very dark which was a theme everywhere in the hotel. I have to say the receptionist was delightful and very helpful and also the pool and spa was excellent I was particularly disappointed at breakfast. Having just come out of a very... More

We received warm welcome from Sam when checking in at reception. The hotel was very nice and not far from Chester zoo, the reason for our stay. We enjoyed the use of the leisure facilities which were very clean. Katie on reception was really lovely and couldn't do enough for us.

I came here for a murder mystery evening for a hen do. On arival we were greeted by a lovely gentleman who escorted us to a seating area ready for our night to begin. The hotel was lovely inside and out. During the nights events the staff would bring in drinks and our courses many of them were very miserable... More

My family and I stayed 1 night. After a very long day at Chester Zoo we checked in and found the Receptionist very friendly and helpful. Rooms were good as well. The enormous let down, which spoilt it for us was the catering team. Food not great at all...over priced for what you get, service very poor as we were... More

Stayed one night at the hotel and had no complaints. The room was clean, the beds extremely comfortable and the breakfast very filling. We also had a spa day with a few treatments and were extremely impressed with both the spa and the staff. The atmosphere throughout was so relaxing and the staff were polite and helpful, but also unobtrusive.... More

Hotel spotless, great staff with superb local knowledge & so helpful. Breakfast excellent, basically order what you want. Plentiful supply of fresh tea & toast, nothing too... More
