We stayed here in the four poster room, which might I add was nearly as long as the length of our home,the staff were really nice, breakfast was lovely, just enough without being overfaced, and plenty of choice, would highly recommend here to anybody xx

Room Tip: For a couple wanting a treat, we loved our four poster room , tea and coffee in room, ensuite bathro...

we have just returned from a two night stay at the pied bull it is a great hotel/pub the staff are fantastic and very friendly, the food is excellent and very tasty. The resident ghost can be heard sometimes walking the corridors of a night (she kept me awake the last night there). The building is fantastic very olde world, just beware of the stairs i had a very bad fall down them they are very steep and un even but the staff couldnt do enough for me after my fall.

We stayed at the Pied Bull In Chester for a night away,the location is fantastic just around
the comer from all the shops and restaurants.
but if you are looking at the pied bull for luxury accommodation you will be bitterly disappointed.
although it was clean it was not very inviting the room was very basic and the heating went off at 5pm. also they gave us a remote control on checking in for the television as they keep getting them stolen.
had to leave the breakfast not very good,there was dried egg on the side plate i presume
from the day before.
the only thing the pied bull has going for it is the location.

this is a great old pub almost in the centre of Chester. The staff are quite friendly and the rooms are above basic but still good for the age of the building. the pub has lots of character with lots of history boasting its own ghosts. the floors are crooked as to be expected for a timber built property dating back hundreds of years and yet the décor isn't too dated nor too modern which makes it very comfortable and in keeping. comfortable beds, warm room and nice big breakfast.

Visited this hotel on Saturday 15th December as my birthday treat . The hotel is absolutely spotlessly clean and has a lovely atmosphere , full of character . The room was also very comfortable and spotlessly clean and exactly what you would expect from a building of this age . The staff were very friendly and polite and the breakfast was faultless !!! Highly recommended and will definitely visit again !

Very nice historic hotel, full of character. Situated in Northgate, it is perfect to get around central Chester. Friendly helpful staff on the 1st night of our stay, but on the 2nd night the service in the restaurant was below par. If it had been, the pub would have got 5 stars. Check out the in house brewed ales. They are worth visiting alone

Room Tip: If you like the idea of stopping in a haunted room,ask for room 8!
