We chose this hotel for several reasons: proximity to Chester old town as we wanted to explore, and for its spa.
Drive to Chester town is easy - 10/15 minutes or so, so if you wanted to travel by taxi, cost shouldn't be prohibitive.
Staff were welcoming and attentive (and the warm cookie provided at check in was most welcome!) and nothing was too much bother. Breakfast is good - self service buffet and has all you could possibly want. If you are booking in on the 'dinner, bed and breakfast' rate you will probably find something you would like on the 2/3 course menu that comes as part of this rate. If you are tempted to eating in the Marco Pierre White grill as an alternative - be prepared for the 3 figure bill - it is however very good.
There is a well equipped gym attached to the hotel and as a guest there is free entry. There is also a lap pool - not massive but big enough. The jacuzzi bit also has an area that is sort of outdoors - so its pleasant even when its a bit on the chilly side.
We had massages/hot stone treatments in the spa and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity just to relax. All in all, a super little break
