As previously noted the hotel is being refurbished, I think they're about half way through the rooms. Outside scaffolding and a worn out reception do not give the best first impression but the room and staff were lovely. Our double room was at the front of the building, no noise at night(Thursday). The room was very clean and well furnished...

At first glance the hotel looks quite poor with scaffolding and communal areas in poor condition - this is work in progress though and the room was newly done and lovely. Basic room but comfortable and adequate for one night. Unfortunately the hotel is near a night club and music pounding from it could be heard and felt from the...

After reading the reviews it was clear that the new owners are making a massive effort to reinvent the hotel we decided to give it a go despite the previous reviews...I'm so glad we did!!! The host greeted us on arrival and could not of...

Just around the corner from the train station, over the road from a great little cafe, a short walk to great bars and restaurants. The hotel is in the process of being refurbished, there is scaffolding outside and the Reception is still quite dated but the room was lovely! You can tell they are really spending a lot of time...

Recently stayed here for one night after a concert at the live rooms, which is just around the corner. Refurbishment is happening at the hotel....however, this doesn't affect your stay. The rooms are A* and would definitely stay again :-) Great price and the staff/owner are very friendly and very helpful. If you're looking for a good stay...BOOK HERE!

Stayed here for one night last night with my partner for a concert at the Live Rooms. The site had free on site parking which we used but is only a five minute walk from Chester station. The owner was lovely and very welcoming and explained to us that it was currently under refurbishment and not quite finished. The room...
