Stayed for 1 night with my partner in July. Before arriving I contacted the hotel regarding an early check in, I received a very prompt reply and my request was carried out. I had read previous reviews so was aware the hotel was under refurbishment and knew what to expect. The hotel manager greeted us on arrival and was very... More

Stayed for 2 nights as it was cheap with the girlfriend. Pulled up to scaffolding on the outside which looks bad and they never warned us on the phone. Being led to see our room for the 1st time had me scared what I would see as creaky floorboards, flaking paint and old carpets made up the halls. The room... More

As previously noted the hotel is being refurbished, I think they're about half way through the rooms. Outside scaffolding and a worn out reception do not give the best first impression but the room and staff were lovely. Our double room was at the front of the building, no noise at night(Thursday). The room was very clean and well furnished... More

At first glance the hotel looks quite poor with scaffolding and communal areas in poor condition - this is work in progress though and the room was newly done and lovely. Basic room but comfortable and adequate for one night. Unfortunately the hotel is near a night club and music pounding from it could be heard and felt from the... More

After reading the reviews it was clear that the new owners are making a massive effort to reinvent the hotel we decided to give it a go despite the previous reviews...I'm so glad we did!!! The host greeted us on arrival and could not of... More

Just around the corner from the train station, over the road from a great little cafe, a short walk to great bars and restaurants. The hotel is in the process of being refurbished, there is scaffolding outside and the Reception is still quite dated but the room was lovely! You can tell they are really spending a lot of time...

My second stay at this Hotel, convenient for the Chester live rooms, music venue & the Railway Station (Both just around the corner), It is currently being refurbished, the rooms are clean and tidy, the manager is very helpful, the only downside for me is they don't have breakfast facilities or a bar, I am not sure if this will...

Not a bad place to stay if you like a memory foam mattress and hard pillows .. we struggled to have a decent nights kip due to the mattress..The customer service you can't fault But hope the refurbishment continues 👍
