My review is based on what I've been told - we arranged an overnight visit for my parents' 45th wedding anniversary. Although it was booked online, I had to email and ring them for a few things. The spa were a bit slow to reply to emails, but the hotel itself were great.
The room was very big and spacious - my parents stayed in the old part of the hotel - with the bathroom nearly as big as the bedroom. There was a bottle of wine and fruit in the room on arrival, my dad was considerably impressed with the huge selection of gin in the bar downstairs, and the 3-course evening meal was excellent.
Location, location, location is the key. Right in the heart of Chester with easy access to the Cathedral, the Castle, the race track and the town hall. The continental breakfast included in the tariff was excellent. Overall a great experience.
We stayed here for 2 nights when I came to Chester to do the marathon. The spa was a godsend on the Sunday afternoon after the run! The spa is nicely set out with a large pool, although we had to wait to get in on Sunday afternoon as it was too busy.
The room was well presented if a little small although it had everything we needed.
The food was brilliant for the whole stay from the sandwich on arrival to breakfast on the last morning. The only disappointment was that Ciro's brassiere didn't do a set menu on Sunday night only a carvery. This meant we ate in Nelsons instead. The food was top notch in there though.
I thoroughly enjoyable stay, will come again.
If in Chester try Pacino's on St Anne's St. Don't be put off by the location and appearances from the outside!

Me & my husband have just spent a wonderful few days at The Mere Hotel. It was everything I was hoping for, the hotel itself has lovely decor of a very high standard. The bedrooms are spacious and well equiped with adjustable heating and the bathrooms are also very good with under floor heating and lovely showers. We tried both restaurants during our stay: the bar restaurant is very nice and the food is of a good standard, Browns restaurant is also very nice and the food is of a high standard, well done to all the chefs for providing such lovely meals! The swimming pool and jacuzzi are very good, it was nice to have a jacuzzi that was lovely and warm, so relaxing. The various thermal rooms were also very good. Me & my husband enjoyed these facilities immensely. The hotel is in lovely grounds with a view of a large lake and golf course, unfortunately neither me or my husband play golf so I can't really comment on the golf course apart from the fact that it looked to be kept in immaculate condition. Finally, the staff, what can I say, they were so friendly, always giving a smile and asking if you were enjoying your stay. They were all efficient and polite, going the extra mile to ensure your stay was an enjoyable one. Many thanks to them all for making our stay such an enjoyable one!

We travelled from London for a one night stay and I was positively surprised about everything! Very romantic and remote location!
The staff very friendly, smiley and helpful! I've noticed a very relaxed atmosphere coming from the busy city!
The room was very clean much better than any other hotel We stayed in and around London!
I would recommend it at any time!

"Hotel was well appointed with excellent location."
We were extremely pleased with the hotel, and made full use of the leisure facilities, including the steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi, swimming pool, which were all well maintained and clean. The Receptionist endeavoured to upgrade our room upon discovering that we were on honeymoon having married on the previous Saturday. Sadly the hotel was fully booked and she was unable to carry out the upgrade. The food was superb based on the set menu as part of the deal and waiting staff very efficient and helpful. We would not hesitate in recommending the hotel and would really love to stay there again, perhaps as an anniversary treat! Location was good in relation to the various popular Peak District towns, and Peak District activities.
All of the hotel staff are very helpful and friendly, Car parking is close to your room even if you are in the annex. The food although a bit more pricey than you would expect was top notch,might even impress my wife if I brought her? Will definitely stay here again if I am in the area.
