Found this little gem of a place whilst looking for somewhere to stay near Chester Zoo. We were not disappointed and stayed for an extra night. The hotel is spotless, bedroom very comfortable and the food excellent value. The staff are so welcoming and are obviously happy to be there. We were fortunate to have good weather to enable us to sit out in the large beer garden. it has been well thought out for social distancing so very safe. Our drive to the Zoo took 15mins so all in all an excellent choice if you are in the area.
