“Friendly Staff Great Position”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice friendly, warm hotel. It is close to the Roman Wall and the city centre. Furniture is a little worn but clean and after all it is a very "old" hotel. Free WiFi and the breakfast is excellent.

A decent enough pub to stay in - very good location, excellent beers. However, I feel that the 10 o'clock in the morning check-out and ( at weekends, anyway ) breakfast times of between 8am-9am is there more to suit the people running the establishment, than those who are paying to stay there.

Stopped by for lunch while touring around Chester. The place is full of history... so old. Originally was a coach house that offered, food, ale and lodging for travellers. It was quaint to a tee. The staff provided good service though the food was not as good as I expected for English pub fare. Had the scampi as they were out of my original choice. The serving size was small.

Just spent the night at this hotel which is in the centre of Chester. Had a room at the back of the hotel which was not too noisy, it was small but adequate for my husband and myself.
We both found it very warm.
The only meal we had there was breakfast I asked for scrambled egg,bacon,tomato and mushroom they brought sausage bacon and tomato but they did take it back and change however my husband had finished his by the time they returned it.
But I would say that the hotel had character.

Room Tip: This hotel is in the centre of Chester no parking but you can park in a very close by car park which...

Back from a two night stay which met all our needs. A place with real character & service was excellent. Nothing too much trouble and the selection of home brewed ales second to none. Great location and the breakfasts cooked to order.Tempted to return for the New Year bash.

Room Tip: Wor lass wouldn't have been happy in room 8 after reading about the spectral presences.

We have just returned from a Friday- Sunday stay in Chester. Can't fault the location. Can't fault the food. Can't fault the friendly staff. The rooms are clean but so cheaply decorated you feel the place is overpriced. The bed frames are new I think, and maybe the mattresses too, but the mattress in our room was too small for the frame. My pillows kept disappearing down a void between mattress and headboard!!! Cheap decor. What a shame!

Room Tip: we stayed in room 2 at the rear, quiet. sister in room 6 facing and was kept awake with outside nois...
