Travelled as a family of 3 in February for a long weekend. We arrived after 9pm and Mike the owner told us where he had left the key with a handwritten note in an envelope - lovely personal touch. The room was on the ground floor, and was quite spacious. Mike was on hand to answer any questions and advice on places to eat and what to do in Chester. There is limited car parking on the forecourt but ample free parking on the street. Recommend breakfast at the Hungry Horse pub on the other side of the street. The lodge is within 6 minutes of Chester City by car and approx 25 minutes if walking. Would stay here again.
