Nice Hotel, Nice View. Good Value. Unfortunately the personal is sometimes not really kind or polite and slightly aggressiv (especially at the restaurant).

Room Tip: Don't chose the 309

Stayed here for the 3rd time for our 28th Wedding Anniversary ! Room was lovely with views of the racecourse. The bed as usual was HUGE and very comfortable. Breakfast choice excellent and served with great efficiency. Staff helpful throughout our stay.

Room Tip: All rooms are decorated to the same standard, views of the castle or racecourse are preferred.

Stayed in the Abode Chester on the 21st March 2012 with friends this was our second stay, first time was 1 year ago and the standards have not changed, they are still very high. Hotels in the UK could learn a tremendous amount from the Abode. Our standard of hygiene is very high and this is the only hotel we have ever stayed in that we cannot fault in anyway. All the staff are very accommodating nothing is two much trouble. We look forward to our next stay. Thankyou

A special occasion deserves a special treat and the whole family were delighted with the star treatment we experienced during our weekend stay at the Chester Abode. Service impeccable, food glorious - oh soooo glorious and beautiful appointed modern rooms. Well done Abode for making our visit memorable. ps my mother still talks about "that huge bed"

Room Tip: Outward facing rooms are the best - Race course or City views

My wife and I stayed for her birthday, I booked us in a Desirable Room. They kindly provided her a birthday card and choccies which I thought was a nice gesture.

I was however disappointed with the bathroom we had. There was smeared water marks on the black wall and it looked a little grimey.

The bed was amazing! Bit smaller than I imagined but credit where credits due - a very cosy nights sleep.

We enjoyed our stay however I really do believe it's overpriced - and maintenance need to have a look at the bathroom.

We stayed at the Abode for our anniversary, overall the hotel is lovely, nice clean rooms, helpful staff on reception and a luxury feel to the rooms.

The only problem we found was on arrival in our room. We had paid for a Desirable Room and had been promised a view of either the racecourse or the city (that was the selling point and why we paid extra), however when we arrived we found that we were facing a horrible block of offices! We called reception and were told there were no other desirable rooms available for the night. We were offered a 'Fabulous on Sixth' room for an extra £100 which we could not justify. We ended up giving £50 cash and being upgraded to a 'Fabulous' room. And although it was impressive, it was only what we were promised and were expecting from our desirable room! The only difference being the balcony which, to be fair, was huge! I assume we were put in the cheapest of the sixth floor rooms because from looking at the fire exit poster on the back of the wall, ours was by far the smallest!

Plus points though: Staff were helpful, rooms were clean, got our full breakfast delivered to the room for no extra charge (although the bacon was terrible!), free snack selection in the room.

I'd recommend this hotel for couples looking for a romantic treat.

Room Tip: Request a nice view. Perhaps even worth specifying that you do not want to be facing inwards towards...
