Shabby reception does not give the best first impression. Rooms are basic, the tv is located behind the headboard of the bed so difficult to watch. Owner wanted extra money to store our cases for an hour on the day if departure. Not somewhere we would stay again.

Staff were lovely and really helpful. The room was clean and tidy and the bed was really comfortable. The only down side was there was no mirror in the bedroom but I would definitely recommend this hotel

I booked a night at the Ormonde guest house as I was working in Chester and needed to be close to the train station. When I walked in around 3,30pm, I couldn't believe how bare the place was. A man asked me my name told me “that's £40” then took me to my single room. The door had been kicked...

We visited the ormonde last year before the refurb... The owner told us of his plans.. So we gave it another chance.. Wow! What a transformation...only - is he didn't have our booking? Despite 10 emails.. We were swiftly given two rooms (a single and a double) instead of the twin room we had booked for the first night until...

Single room was modern and well funished/spotlessly clean/bed was amazingly comfortable and literally a stones throw from Chester Train Station and "The Live Rooms" venue. Owner was very friendly and quite dishy. Only downside was they didn't offer breakfast but there is a lovely little cafe right opposite. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone...

Just spent a lovely couple of days in Chester and chose The Ormande for the night. Check in was quick and easy. We were shown to our room and we were delighted with the cleanliness and how well decorated and equipped it was. It had all we needed for the 1 night stay. TV, clean bathroom, comfy bed, tea making...

Stayed for 1 night with my partner in July. Before arriving I contacted the hotel regarding an early check in, I received a very prompt reply and my request was carried out. I had read previous reviews so was aware the hotel was under refurbishment and knew what to expect. The hotel manager greeted us on arrival and was very...

Stayed for 2 nights as it was cheap with the girlfriend. Pulled up to scaffolding on the outside which looks bad and they never warned us on the phone. Being led to see our room for the 1st time had me scared what I would see as creaky floorboards, flaking paint and old carpets made up the halls. The room...
