Nice location but we didn't stay here for whatever reason. We were moved to their sister accommodation called the Three Kings Studio's which was great.

Good value overnight stay.
Nice room, Small TV, bed was a memory foam which was not to our liking, building was very warm. Continental breakfast ticks all the boxes with fresh fruit, cereals, pastries toast etc. Just an over night stay for us. Good value.

We had a lovely welcoming when we arrived and the room was lovely. Breakfast was everything and more you could expect from a continental. Lovely extra touches too which made our stay even better.

Superb stay
Check in was very welcoming and informative,, room was very spacious and comfortable with excellent facility’s and very clean breakfast was good with a varied choice and you could also help yourself to bottled water and bottled juice drinks also fruit,biscuits and sweets from the dining area at anytime during our stay The owners were very friendly and helpful Excellent positioning to walk in to city centre and for places nearby for an evening meal and drink Would definitely recommend the limes and if returning to Chester would check for vacancy’s before looking elsewhere
