The Pied Bull is centrally located in the middle of Chester. For a pub it was surprisingly quiet. Service friendly, casual but impersonal. An interesting old building; our room was well adapted for modern use although the floor had quite a slope! The room was clean and pleasantly decorated and the bathroom modern and spacious. Chose not to stay for... More

Despite its website this really is a very overpriced place to stay, the reception is at the end of the bar, the pub itself is really quite tacky with lots of tacky offers, e.g. Sunday lunch 9.99, it is not the boutique style of inn the website aims to portray, our room (3) had a 4 poster bed and was...

We stayed here on a Saturday evening and as we had arrived a little earlier than check in times we were able to leave our bags behind reception before heading off to explore Chester. The hotel is very centrally situauted so perfect to head out and explore! Upon our return, check-in was efficient and easy and the staff were friendly... More

We chose to stay at the Pied Bull as we'd been there 17 years ago after our wedding. Pleased to find out that the rooms had been renovated. We had room 14 which was very clean and well appointed. The bedframe was a bit wobbly and moved when we sat on it. The bathroom has been modernised with a big... More

What a lovely oldie worldie place - was a nice place & staff where first class. Only problem was the noise in room 16- noise was horrendous from the main road & from the sanaflow system in the bathroom- every time you either flushed the toilet or turned the tap on the noise was really bad. Food was lovely.

We booked a room for 4 people and were pleasantly surprised with the 2 bedroomed suite that we stayed in. It was very clean and comfortable, with TVs (one with dvd player) and free WiFi and a gorgeous bathroom!

my wife bought me a groupon voucher for the Pied Bull brewery tour which my friend & I went on last Saturday. The tour started at 6pm & the very knowledgeable tour guide (sorry didn't catch his name) showed us round the micro brewery which is located in the pub cellar. It was very interesting to see the process of... More

Stayed here as a surprise birthday night away. Overall a very nice place but unfortunately our room was just too small to rate any higher than 3 stars. We were in a standard double which, at over £150 per night, I had hoped would offer slightly more than it did. The bed was comfortable and the linen clean, fresh and... More
