We stayed for one night whilst enjoying the sights of Chester. The Pied Bull was in the Camra Good Beer Guide so we thought it would be a good pub with ok rooms and the website sold it to us. The only room available was the four poster room (3).
The staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. The pub, the beer, the room and the breakfast were all distinctly average.
The blanket on our bed was dirty, the bathroom shower curtain was too short and so attacked you as you used the shower. No hairdryer unless you went down to reception. Lots of noise from other guests. I burnt my leg on the towel rail, it got dangerously hot.
Room 3 had a four poster bed, this was a divan inside a 4 poster frame. It was ok but I wouldn't pay extra for it. The room was large and had a sofa and 2 armchairs but they were a bit past it.
We parked in the market car park down the road, it cost almost £10.
Breakfast service was slow. I expected a bit better, we got 3 half slices of toast between two of us so had to fight for the final piece. The lack of attention to detail let the pied bull down across the board.
We weren't expecting 5* but I wanted a good nights sleep and a yummy breakfast, we got neither.
