Nice place but don't get stuck in room 11!
Pub/hotel was fine. I usually think you get what you pay for but the room we had wasn't up to scratch & hotel was full so couldn't change rooms. Small room - no problem. Paint flaking off walls - problem. Single glazed window- problem. Massive water pools every morning from condensation, running down the wall. Wardrobe - no wardrobe, just a wall bracket with a few hangers but not a big issue. Lovely bathroom apart from the shower curtain pole was stuck together with gaffer tape & the complimentary toiletries consisted of a tube of hand wash covered in someone elses makeup. Hot water pressure is non existent so don't try having a bath! Housekeeping staff where lovely as were the hotel/pub staff. It was lovely and warm though.
Broken window safety catch
Not my makeup on this!

Good stay i Chester
Location is good for either Chester Zoo or the old town, 20 minutes walk, room is well presented, positives are the big modern pub on ground floor, with 20% off food for those staying in the hotel and free onsite parking, the only slight negatives are the thin partition walls with other rooms and the gap at the door, causing it to bang from the draught each time somebody is passing through the corridor and using the front door.

Good Value but in need of update
First impression was that of a busy pub and wondered about comfort. Room was a little tired (understand they are going through a refurb) but ours was obviously still to so as there was flaking paint and a bare patch on the wall. It was also a little on the small side but then was only a base. Couldn't hear the pub, though one or two of the residents were noisy when coming back from a night out partying (but not the hotels fault). On the positive, you couldn't fault the staff - they couldn't do enough for you and were always friendly and courteous - particularly Emma who was on the breakfast shift who went out of her way to help with our needs. Food was good value and tasty and discount for staying added further value. Good base for a comfortable stroll into Chester (so avoiding the one way system and parking charges) Would we stay again? Possibly, once all rooms refurb'd (and avoiding Horse Race weekend)
