Lovely surroundings and pleasant atmosphere. We went for afternoon tea...8 of us in total. What we had was lovely but just not enough...4 finger sandwiches, a scone and 2 petit fours and a glass of fizz £25!! The desserts weren't equal either, so you had to negotiate with the rest of the group for what you had. When you go...

A really interesting building. A shame that no written history was available - I think that would be a great asset. Very helpful staff. Shame also that the only twin-bedded room was up on the top floor, with lots of stairs to climb! Nonetheless, an enjoyable stay. Thanks.

This is a charming hotel in the centre of Chester just minutes away from all the shops and restaurants. We stayed here on a Monday night for my partners birthday and also had afternoon tea. The afternoon tea was beautiful, lovely restaurant area. Waiters were lovely and attentive. Food was delicious. Very reasonably priced too. We stayed in "the newbrook"...

This hotel bar is a great place to meet friends and have a drink before going for dinner. Its very quirky place when see how it is decorated, but i think this adds to the atmosphere of the bar. It gets very busy on weekends as it a popular place to drink in Chester.

We enjoyed our stay here but there were a few problems. Before booking I checked if 2 of the beds would be made up as singles for our children ( boy & girl teens, don't want to sleep in same bed ), I was told yes when I phoned, when I booked I commented about the same thing, when I...

I have just spent the weekend at Oddfellows, and a lovely time was had. The room was comfortable, with a mezzanine shower room overlooking the bed. The toilet was separate, but no locks on doors, so make sure you know the person you're with very well! The staff were very helpful, and nothing was too much trouble. The missing star...

Gorgeous place to stay, lovely rooms. But it doesn't come cheap. There was an error with the payment which was a bit of a nightmare (they charged me twice) and the breakfast to go, doesn't get you going anywhere. In my honest opinion I think for the room rate paid breakfast should be included, even if just off a menu...
