Our "executive room" overlooked the rail station concourse which was undergoing 24 hour refurbishment work (which we seldom heard) but we work on the adage win some lose some for what was lost in the vista was more than made up by the room.
This was a large room very large by modern room standards with an equally spacious well supplied bathroom. It was a little tired in decor (cup heat marks on the dining table rather spoilt it) and it was rather dark however with highly polished period furniture offering a multitude of storage spaces plus a super huge wonderful comfy bed, a settee plus much more it made up for a minor niggle or two.
We were blown away by the kindness of the reception staff and this can be said of all the other staff we came into contact with but especially the Breakfast Manager who presided over the best most comprehensive breakfasts we have ever had anywhere, also the great kitchen & restaurant staff who were ever attentive & just wonderful. On Valentines night well over eighty covers of superb food were served smoothly efficiently and always with a smile.
Try the steaks they are simply delicious but then over our stay we had many dishes all were excellent.
A great hotel for well aged such as I only a cock stride from the station and just a short walk to Chester's brilliant city centre. A very clean vibrant hub with a multitude of things to see and do
steeped in history. Our short three day stay was nowhere near enough to take in all the amenities we hoped for. We shall be back soon and probably many more times after. Our thanks to a great hotel and great staff.
