We stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights in July , decided to have a standard class room . The standard rooms are quite small but clean and well enough equipped, but they are so hot and stuffy even with the window open. The beds and pillows are just passable for comfort . For a short break to recharge the batteries this was not ideal.The public bar provides plenty of choice if you like your ale.The restaurant provides a splendid evening meal, quantity as well as quality. The gym and pool are great for those who need to keep the flab away. The restaurant staff are always friendly but one or two of the bar staff were at times bordering on ignorant. We have stayed here before and have found the overall quality of the hotel on the down grade.

No problem on arrival, checked in and parked car in nearby car park which belonged to Hotel. Had paid for an up-graded Classic room with balcony. The room was very nice but the light coloured carpet was in a terrible mess with stains all over. Called reception and they said they would get housekeeping to check it when they came on duty in about 2 hours time. The 2 hours passed and I called them again and advised that nothing had been done and I was not happy with the condition of the carpet. They offered me a club room which I was told was an upgrade but at no extra charge. I inspected the Club room and it was acceptable. The meals at the Hotel were very good, especially the pub grub which was excellent. Found that the smokers area outside the pub looking on to the canal was very noisy at nights until 0100hrs.

ideally situated for centre of chester. sits astride the canal i.e. built on both sides of the canal connected by covered glass bridge.rooms very small but appear to be newly decorated.only one lift which was a little out of the way from reception.check in easy.plenty car parking space. buffet breakfast was alittle limited. mushrooms and beans had to be ordered if required which i thought was a little odd.overall ideal location and facilities for short break in chester.

My husband and I have just returned from a 4 night break to this hotel, we had an excellent time, the hotel is very centrally located, and within walking distance to all of Chester's amenities. The breakfast times were ideal- served until 10.00am, when away not everyone wants to get up early for breakfast!! There were lots of options for mealtimes, but we only tried the food from the hotel pub, which was delicious!! so much so we ate there on 3 of our 4 day stay! The pool, sauna and jacuzzi were an added bonus to this fab hotel. If i had to write any downside, it would be the size of the room, we stayed in a standard double, and its the smallest we have stayed in yet, however dont let this put you off, the room is just a base after all. We will definately return to this hotel.

we found this hotel by chance and what a find, spanning both sides of the canal this hotel boasts a superb restaurant at reasonable prices serving a great full english buffet breakfast, a superb real ale bar with canal frontage at better than pub prices, a great gym,spa and swimming pool, superb large bedrooms, even though ours faced the main road there was no noise at all. it even has it's own barge for evening meals and to top it all it's own car park. being only 4 minutes walk from the centre of chester makes this hotel a must.
we can't recomend it enough

I stayed in this hotel for 5 days. The hotel is almost in the city center so you can walk to the downtown. It is also very close to the train station if you wanted to take a trip to London or Liverpool. The hotel has a very good service, at least 3 restaurants and bars, it has swimming pool and the gym.

The food I had in the restaurant was absolutely great! 3 course dinner was only 14 Pounds + drinks. So excelant quality for value.

The rooms are nice, the bed was comfortable. I really liked the hotel.
