Well sited hotel to explore Chester. Many roads not accessible due to building and roadworks confused sat nav. Air conditioning not working and windows didn't open. Asked for live in handyman to sort it twice but he didn't appear and staff never got back to us. Given a small fan for room which circulated stale hot air. No non slip shower mat in Bath shower but you could ask for one no grab rail assist with getting out of bath/shower. . Restaurant was closed. Went out for evening meal on our return a note was pushed under the door to say only continental breakfast available in morning. Car park was £10 and no discount offered for staying at this hotel despite a previous email saying there was. No refund for breakfast which was included in price.

Party of 4 in separate rooms. Convenient location, lovely old building lots of character but poor window glazing, over bath shower impossible to regulate without getting a cold blast, or water all over floor if one tried to regulate from outside the bath. Very noisy at night due to lots of bars opening till early hour in the vicinity. small lift for only 3 small persons, key cards for rooms never worked and had to go back to reception from 3rd floor each time to re-calibrate. Good breakfast. nice toiletries.

Stayed on a Sunday.hotel handy for or a stroll around the city walls. Plenty to see and do. Hotel was clean and the staff very helpful. Only downside is that there is a bar under the hotel which was open until 4am. Lots of screaming and yelling at closing time. Wasn’t expecting that at 4am on a Monday morning. Should imagine would be a nightmare on busy race days.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very disappointing stay. Bar and restaurant were closed. Full breakfast turned out to be a limited delivered to room option, and on one morning we didn't get everything we'd asked for. Room could not be serviced "because of Covid" so nothing was replenished during our stay despite asking for extra toiletries at reception. Bins emptied by us and left outside room for collection but no replacement bags provided. No bathrobe in room and when asked was told "not allowed because of Covid". Generally poor service and felt that Covid was being used as an excuse by the staff for everything. Checked out a day early as didn't want to stay any longer. Discussed issues with team manager. Awaiting a response but would not recommend.

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We booked a superior room, our room was pretty basic, the shower never got hot and we were not advised before we arrived that there was no restaurant, and we would have to have breakfast and any drinks we wanted in our room. As we had not been anywhere for months we were really looking forward to it. It was so very disappointing. So much so that we cancelled our 2nd night and lost money. The only positive thing I would say was the location.
