“Excellent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

I stay in the Blossoms hotel every year for a 2 night weekend break in November with 3 other ladies. It is our Christmas shopping venue of choice.
It is so central that once we have parked the car up on the Friday we don't use it again until we go home on the Sunday. The hotel itself has been refurbished in the last 5 years and I have no complaints about the rooms or the decor, the staff are really lovely and helpful and the bar and restaurant are really nice.
The location means that you can shop like mad and then unload your packages in your room and get back out to shop some more.
Plenty of places to dine nearby including the Grosvenor Hotel for a fabulous Champagne afternoon tea if you fancy a real treat.
I cannot recommend the New Blossoms hotel enough.

Room Tip: I've had rooms all over the hotel with no complaints, the inner rooms away from the street are o...

Stayed here for 2 nights. Excellent hotel right in the centre of town. We had one meal in the hotel restaurant. The service, meal and price were all excellent. The hotel staff were very good, nothing was too much trouble.

Have stayed here before and was happy to do so again. Service excellent although room on this occasion very compact. I was travelling for business and it really was just a place to sleep however had I been travelling as a couple the room would have given cause for concern. The room booked was a classic double which I am aware is the lead in category. Fine for one person but would recommend checking with the hotel if you are a couple as to the size of room allocated.

Just got back from a one night stay, Christmas shopping with my partner. after only paying £84 for dinner, bed and breakfast and after reading previous reviews my expectations were not high. what I actually found were very pleasant staff giving excellent service in all areas. The hotel was well located for the shops and city centre, the room and en suite were well proportioned, clean and provided all that you need and the restaurant served well cooked food of a high quality with a breakfast offering lots of choice. I will be visiting Chester in January and will be booking here again.

We stayed on a Saturday and Sunday night for our wedding anniversary and the hotel was lovely, the bedroom we had was a little small but nice and clean and a nice comfortable bed.
Their is a nightclub over the road and a wine bar underneath, you could hear the revellers til the small hours but not excessively noisy.
We didn't have a meal at the hotel just breakfast which was very nice, we saw the menu for the evening meal and did look tasty, 3 courses priced at £25, we would definately stay here again, location a bonus right in the centre.

Had a lovely overnight stay at the Blossoms. The receptionist was very friendly when we arrived and we were able to check in earlier than normal as our room was available. Room was very clean, cosy, quiet and comfortable. Ideally located for shopping in the city. Lovely choice of breakfast. Have stayed here on several occasions and would definitely go back.
