Hotel was very nice and in a central location. We upgraded our room for an extra £50 but it wasn't worth it. The cooked breakfast was a huge let down, it was only luke warm and you only got one item of everything for £17.50 :-( Stayed in better hotels for less money. Overall it is still a lovely place...

We had our wedding reception at this venue and could not fault it. The day was fantastic from start to finish and the staff couldn't have been more helpful, nothing seemed too much trouble for them! Lots of our guests commented on how good the food and service was. Would definitely recommend this hotel for other couples looking for the... More

We were welcomed with a very friendly receptionist on arrival who gave us directions to the spa. The Spa is amazing and my only negative point would be that there isn't a jacuzzi. I thought this was rather odd when it has recently been refurbished but there is the pool to enjoy. Our massages were all great and we all... More

Having booked tickets to Chester races, my friend and I decided to treat ourselves to a night at a fancy hotel. We couldn't have picked a better one. Approximately a 10 minute taxi ride into Chester, perfect location if you didn't want to stay right in the city centre. On arrival, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Complimented both...

A lovely hotel with attentive staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were very clean and the grounds well kept. A lovely relaxing place to spend time away from the hassle of day to day life. I would recommend this hotel.

Unfortunately spa was under staffed and this impacted on our experience. Didn't have time to enjoy all the spa facilities as we were kept waiting so long. Staff were apologetic and offered us another spa day, shame it wasnt right the first time.

Returned with my young son this time and the service is no different,nothing is too much trouble-especially when your husband thinks he has lost his wedding ring and everyone looks for you! Can't wait to return again.

The hotel itself is lovely with superb surrounding grounds and scenery. Staff are all friendly,polite and happy to help. The room was lovely with nice extra little touches.the only negative thing I could say is the room was very hot due to the fact I could only open the window a few inches. I'm guessing this is due to health... More
