“Fantastic modern relaxing hotel”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Phoned the hotel direct to book a room for 1 night away from the kids for me and my partner to celebrate my birthday. I was asked on the phone if there was a special occasion and I duly told them the reason for our visit. The staff were very friendly and welcoming when we arrived and on getting to our room I the receptionist arrived with a birthday card and we were told that they had upgraded us to an enviable room. The room was clean, modern and fantastic luxury with a wonderful roomy bed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, all the staff were so friendly and helpful, the champagne bar was stunning as was the cooked breakfast in the restaurant. The races were on but in complete contrast to the hustle and bustle outside the hotel was an oasis of calmness and relaxation. Great parking facilities also. We can't wait for our next visit.

Recently I was fortunate enough to attend a champagne evening at the Abode Chester.

First of all this was my first time at such an event and also the same for my partner, I can honestly say from the moment we entered the hotel we were looked after, on entering the champagne bar and dining area we were greeted with a glass of champagne and canapés which were delightful, we then proceeded into the dining area which was not only set out beautifully but had a fantastic views over Chester Racecourse and Chester its self which was made even better when watching the sun set.

We were then ready to start the five course meal with matched champagnes ( perrier jouet ), before each course the food was announced by the chef and representative from the champagne house also gave a description of the wine we were about to drink and some interesting facts about the company but in no way boring or scripted.

Overall the evening was fantastic and this was down to the hotel, views, service and the atmosphere that had been created by the staff and hotel, I would certainly recommend this experience and other events to anyone even if you have not done such an evening before.

The receptionist was lovely. The building itself is impressive. The cost of drinks and food is average for Chester. The rooms are well equipped with a proper size iron and board. The hairdryer is powerful. The toiletries(body/hair wash and soap) smell great very fruity. You don't get earbuds etc...so bring them. Location is excellent it is a stone throw away from the centre. The pub next door is lovely on a summer' day and is very popular. The bed is lovely and soft and the curtains block out the light-also we experienced no noise population. They advertise a beauty/spa. The lady comes in via appointment only so pre booking is a must. Overall the hotel is lovely and worth every penny-so enjoy your stay!

We stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was small but modern, clean and well equipped. We loved both restaurants and the champagne bar. The views from the restaurant and bar of the race course were beautiful,
On our second night the races were actually on and there was a real buzz around the hotel. We really enjoyed it. Would definitely stay here again.

Modern, spotlessly clean and ultra quiet. Absolutely nothing to fault for the room. We were only in a standard room but, other than a bath, there was nothing to fault. There were guests in the next room but we never heard them, and because most rooms are on little "cul de sac corridors" general corridor noise was non existent. We had good view out over the racecourse. Breakfast (at extra cost) was delicious - freshly cooked and good quality ingredients. All staff were very polite and helpful. Car parking is under the hotel (extra cost) and convenient.
There is a small gym, should you wish it. There is a bar on the front of the ground floor which has pleanty of seating outside, on the pavement, under the trees and on a narrow terrace round the side of the hotel away from the road.
Is about 5 minutes walk from the city centra and two from the racecourse.
All up nothing to fault.

We stayed for one night on 6 July and was delighted to find that we'd been upgraded to a deluxe room to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The room was clean, modern and had lovely finishing touches. The bed was massive and extremely comfortable. Location was perfect for a night out and would definitely stay again as love the modern rooms. only downside is very expensive breakfast at £11.20 but not necessary to pay this as location so close to chester it was east to pick up something from elsewhere.

Hotel is well situated being within walking distance of the city but not so close that it's noisy .the rooms are really well presented,however some balconies were very narrow with only room for a single chair and no table.bathroom lovely,bed great it was huge.the hotel very clean and a credit to the staff who were very pleasant,friendly and helpful.
The only negative would be it's a bit expensive compared to other similar hotels who provide evening meal and breakfast for a similar price

Room Tip: Some rooms have a view of Chester race course
