We booked to stay at the New Blossoms Hotel so we could be in the city center to meet up with our daughter. Unfortunately were were moved to Craxton Wood which wasn't in such a good location for what we required.

We were well pampered with expert back massage and facials and manicure/ pedicure.The steam rooms and swimming pool were pristine. The hotel itself was warm and welcoming with... More

Really good location outside Chester, excellent restaurant with wide choice of British dishes for the traveller but with wonderful presentation. My stay was allocated a huge room on the ground floor with room for 4 sleeping, being on my own made it seem exceedingly spacious. Overall quality of hotel very high standard and would highly recommend if you are in... More

A comfortable stay at a busy time. Staff very helpful but chef needs to understand the requirement of medium to well done as evening meal awful. Overall a good stay at a competitive price and would return!
