ABode Chester
Ranked #16 of 44 Hotels in Chester
Reviewed October 3, 2012

This hotel was faultless from the cheery staff at reception to the very comfortable bed. I stayed on business and would definitely stay again. Some minor points to note dependent on your point of view:

The menu in your room isn't the same either food or price wise as the restaurant. The restaurant is al a carte so if your hungry go out or order room service. The hotel is close to good local restaurants

If your a light sleeper all of the rooms ending in 03 so 103, 203,303 & 403 are right next door to the door to the lift so you will be able to hear the door and the lift if like me you do sleep lightly.

Otherwise very impressed with the staff, the rooms and the location. There is a small gym which is handy for a couple of nights stay. It was incredibly easy to log on to the free wifi and the layout of the room and un-intrusive lighting, as well as even the bathroom mirror has been well thought out. Finally even the free coffee isn't sachets, you actually get those one cup coffee filters

We booked the hotel online and I had never heard of it before so must admit I was a tad nervous but read the good reviews and decided to go for it. The Abode did not disappoint. The location was great, we walked into town in the day for some shopping and also at night for food and drinks. The rooms were clean and spacious and the staff were very helpful and polite. The bar upstairs was lovely and served nice cocktails. My only slight negative would be the breakfast the next day. The eggs were very undercooked and it said it came with beans but I literally got about 5 beans!! Other than that it was a thoroughly enjoyable stay and we will be going again and would recommend.

The Abode is a truly beautiful hotel, with lovely views and intelligently thought out rooms, including plenty of power points, a modern bathroom, spacious, thick curtains, a safe, and so on.

The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, the hotel-wide wifi worked perfectly and the bed is really comfortable.

It is a genuine luxury hotel without having to pay the full whack you might expect. As someone who has to stay in hotels somewhere around the country once a month or so for business, this is one of the nicest places in the UK that I have stayed.

We stayed at the Abode for a trip to Chester Races. The location really couldn't be better as it overlooks the racecourse.The room was nice enough, good sized, modern and smart. Everything you expected.

We had breakfast included which is served in the Michael Caines restaurant. On the first day it was very good if rather fussily presented. On the second day - a Sunday - there was obviously a B team in the kitchen and while everything was ostensibly the same, the quality was just not there.

The reception staff were really superb, very helpful at all hours. And, when we mentioned the problem with breakfast, they just apologised and took it off the bill without any discussion. They turned a bad experience into a good one.

It was quite expensive, but that's to be expected on a race day, and for what we got it wasn't outrageously priced. I'd definitely stay again.
