We loved the Bul & Stirrup Hotel. It's nothing flash....but the rooms were large, comfortable & with nice big bathroom. The Staff were just magnificent & were always very obliging. Great central location too!!!

I can't believe this stay was only £50 per night!
Perfect location in Chester's city centre. Quiet clean rooms and fabulous food. Beautiful english pub and the owners were lovely.

Thank you so much!

Don't expect luxury here, but if you are after value for money, it could not be faulted. Situated right at the edge of the old town the Bull and Stirrup is in a good position to stroll to all the sights, without being in the crowded and noisy centre. It has its own free car park, so that's a bonus. The beds were clean and comfy. the towels were clean and there were nice brewing facilities. The continental breakfast included in the room price was more than adequate for us, although you could have full breakfast for a few pounds extra. This is an very old building and as such has to be continually maintained and updated, which takes time and money. The owners and staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us to make our one night stay as enjoyable as possible. If I went to Chester again for the night, I would definitely return to the Bull and Stirrup.

Bar area lovely - very quaint in keeping with old fashioned inn. Staff extremely pleasant and helpful.
HOWEVER: room terrible. Funny smell in room, damp in bathroom, rattling windows and room wasn't cleaned, towels weren't changed, cups weren't washed. Not what you want to face after a day out in lovely Chester.
Smell of cooking whilst going up the stairs was over-powering - not a nice smell either -dirty cooking oil.

Room was dark & dingy. Bathroom was very old fashioned!! The window was draughty and let in all the noise from the road below. As you accent up the stairs from the pub the stale smell becomes more apparant! It was relatively cheap but I would pay a little extra and stay somewhere else!!
