Very poor quality food from a limited unappetising menu. Would have been even more disappointed if we had been staying at the hotel and that was the food on offer.
I ordered a steak, medium cooked which arrived well cooked. For dessert I had sticky toffee pudding which came smothered in whole hazelnuts which tasted quite stale. My husband had the chocolate pudding which was miniscule in size compared to my portion of dessert.
The surroundings are jaded and not exactly spotless Quite loud music playing of the 'thump thump ' nature.
Then the bill!! We were charged for drinks amounting to over £8 which we did not order. A mistake ? Possibly. But mistakes like that should not happen in such an establishment. But for the fact that we always check the bill( and point out if we have been undercharged as well as overcharged)we would have been charged for someone elses drinks. Nice try!!!

I stayed here with my husband for the weekend we usually stay in the near by holiday inn but this was fully booked so we thought we'd give this a try and I'm glad we did, we stayed in the upper deck double room and it was clean and comfortable with sky tv iPod docking station and Starbucks sachets, the only downfall for the room was the window wouldn't close fully which left a cold draught blowing through, breakfast was quite nice plenty to choose from and the gym was great the equipment was really high tech I just wish I'd brought my swimming costume to have a swim but next time I will, I will make this my new choice of hotel to stay in from now on when visiting family in Flintshire.

We had an overnight stay enabling us to visit Chester and use the leisure facilities in the hotel. We had a double family room which is big enough for 2 adults and 2 children, the room was clean my only issue would be that the bathroom was tired in decor, although it was clean. The leisure facilities were fine and good that the pool has a baby section. The restaurant for the evening meal we felt was poor, the standard of the meal was low and I would not choose to eat in the restaurant if we stayed again. The location is quite far out of Chester but not a major problem. Overall this overnight is good value for money for a family of 4.

We decided to stay at this De Vere hotel following a recent stay at the De Vere chain in Blackpool, which we thought was excellent. it was a good location for Chester Zoo and the Designer village.

We were equally pleased with the Chester branch, although it was slightly more worn. That said we upgraded to the upper deck double in Blackpool but had a standard room here and didn't really notice much difference (other than the bed), both were equally impressive.

First impressions were good with a nice entrance lobby and pleasant/ quick check in service. The room we were given was slightly awkward to get to with our pram as there was some steps to manoeuvre before we got there - to be fair we only booked last minute on a busy bank holiday weekend so was understandable.

The room was a good size with bed, sofa and cot - already set up for us which was handy. The cot was decent quality with nice fresh blanket and sheet. The room was generally of a good standard, clean and well decorated. Plenty of gadgets etc to play with - ipod dock, large flat screen, free WiFi etc. Bed was comfortable although not as luxurious as in the upper deck double rooms. Bathroom was well decorated, not the best we've ever had but above average. Plenty of wardrobe space with a separate area for making tea/ coffee/ hot chocolate.

As mentioned the hotel was very busy due to it being a bank holiday at full capacity. This had its downside as we couldn't use the onsite pub to eat in as it was full/ loud and we didn't fancy the restaurant so we can't comment on the onsite food choices for evening meals. No real issue though as there is a pub directly next to it that we ate at - food was of a good pub level. We did have the breakfast in the morning which we enjoyed very much, plenty of choice.

We only stayed 1 night so didn't get chance to use many facilities but there was plenty on offer including a pool, fitness gym etc.

We had an issue with some guests across from us having a party in their room, not ideal as we were trying to keep our baby asleep and we couldn't get hold of reception to let them know over the phone. However it wasn't long before a member of security asked them to be quiet or head down to the bar, which killed the noise straight away.

Overall we were very pleased with our stay and felt the higher price tag was justified given the facilities on offer and the standard of accommodation.

We stayed in Family More Room for 2 nights over the bank holiday weekend. The hotel was clean and our room very spacious with a large bathroom which was ideal for our group. Rooms are dark and lighting limited especially by the full lenght mirror in the room.
We used the pool & sauna/steam room which were adequate but busy with families and we
didnt manage to get in the jacuzzi as it was always full.
You need to have breakfast early to avoid the weekend queues and have freshly cooked food. The first morning was fine but breakfast was spoilt on our second morning by a couple of tables of women in dressing gown and slippers. We are not talking spa type dress more like scruffy bathrobes. Having worked in hotels for many years I feel this is unacceptable attire for a restaurant and that guests should be made to dress in T shirt & joggers as a minimum and not be able to slob around as though they have just got up - Village please take note.
Dinner on the Saturday night was good on the whole, we chose the fixed price menu £12.95 for 3 courses. The starters were awful(eggs benedict and salmon & beetroot salad) neither were as described on the menu, but the main courses and desserts made up for the disapointment.
We enjoyed our weekend visiting Chester and Cheshire Oaks and would return here in the future.

Room Tip: Family More room was very spacious - 2 king size beds and a sofa bed. Room also had an additional so...

24 of us went to this hotel for a 60th Birthday, to see the ABBA tribute band, the package included a 3 course meal.

Firstly I must say the ban were excellent, and everyone was dancing and everyone one in our party and the others parties that were there really enjoyed this tribute band.

Unfortunate every one, certainly all I our party, found the food to be absolutely disgusting, the main taste for both the leek and potato soup (neither vegetable or taste was distinguishable) and the Chicken Chasseur was that of cinnamon ( although some thought it may be aniseed) as we looked around for some one to ask if all was OK, no one was to be found, the waiters were doing a sterling job especially amongst such criticism of the food from many people, but surely someone must have seen the quantity of food being returned!

After the main course was not eaten by myself and as I said many others, I was now in the need of something to eat, there is a carvery type Pub next door, who were great, not wanting a table, I asked for something quick such as a beef sandwich so I could return to my friends as quickly as possible, they were only to happy to help, and apparently according to the staff at this Pub it happens a lot, even the Taxi driver on the way home said that most people say that the food here is not good at all!
