Very central location - close to shops and restaurants.
Beautiful hotel room was different from picture on Internet found out due to noise there is workmen in refurbishing the rooms. The cooked breakfast was fabulous only found the waiter staff were not very happy did try to talk to them but sadly not much response. Yes I would go back it’s a great place ...
The pied bull was everything we expected and more. An old pub which still has so much character. The staff were really friendly and the food was lovely too. Thank you!
Very easy access to everything I needed to see and do in Chester. Loved the Club Loung
Really friendly staff who were very welcoming and accommodating. Room was gorgeous (we were upgraded to the party vault) and very clean. The location was ideal for town and the river which was lovely.
Great location. Lovely rooms and helpful friendly staff. We also ate there both nights and really enjoyed both meals.
Fantastic view over the race track. Conveniently close to the city centre.
Great location in the center of the city. Excellent staff that couldn't be more friendly. Hotel itself is funky and unique with a high standards of finish throughout
Excellent service including upgrade for first visit. Nice touch
Cheshire is replete with great attractions, from castles and abbeys to theme parks and racecourses. The Romans were the first to come here and leave their mark in a positive fashion, building monuments, walls and roads as they went and establishing what would later become great cities. Chester is a case in point, with its beautiful walls and extensive Roman remains such as the amphitheatre. Book in to a Cheshire hotel or guesthouse close by and you can enjoy the city's many attractions, including the famous Eastgate Clock, the second most photographed clock in the United Kingdom after London's Elizabeth Tower (incorrectly referred to as 'Big Ben'!).
The Eastgate forms part of Chester's ring of ancient stone walls, which are one of the city's main attractions. Although the gate which visitors see today is Georgian the original one was built on this spot by the Romans. The clock was added later to celebrate the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria. It's one of the city's major landmarks and in its final form was unveiled in 1899, when the queen turned 80. Like many famous landmarks such as the Shard in London and the Angel of the North, it was at first controversial, with many people considering it garish because of its elaborate ironwork frame and bright red and gold finish. It certainly continues to clash with its surroundings - one of the charges against it - but is now considered to do so in an interesting and creative way - how times, and tastes, change!
The Eastgate Clock is a useful landmark as well as an important and iconic one in Chester. It has clock faces on all four sides, and appropriately given its location uses Roman numerals. The clock is illuminated at night and is invaluable for orienting yourself in the dark streets. Once you have the clock in your sights you know precisely where you are. It had to be manually wound once every week until 1992, when an electric mechanism was installed. Don't miss this delightful and beautiful Chester landmark when you visit the city from your Cheshire hotel or B&B.
