Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Cheshire Cat. We had room 6, one of the outside cottages, which was clean and well equipped, backing on to the Shropshire canal. Our only complaint was that the pillows were extremely hard. Breakfast was more than adequate with a good selection of criossants, pastries, bread and bagels; yogurts, fresh fruit, cereals and dried fruit, cheese and preserves. The hotel is in a beautiful spot although situated on a very busy A road. A walk along the canal tow path before or after your meal is a very peaceful experience, taking in the many narrow boats either moored or negotiating the waterway and the lovely homes who's gardens also back on to the canal on the opposite bank. The food served at the hotel is good with an excellent choice of wines, although there is a Harvester just half a mile up the road easily accessible via the tow path or main road. Chester city centre is just 2 miles from the Hotel. We used the park and ride facility which is just about 3/4 mile from the Hotel. We would certainly use this Hotel again.
