Positive Reviews


Chester races: and back in The Saddle.

Rooms are well decorated and furnished with comfortable beds. Some are not en-suite as such but with private bathroom facilities adjacent. There’s a real homely feel to the place,as displayed by the staff. You can even leave luggage early and/or pick it u


A winning tip for Chester races.

The bar can be full of race goers so there’s a great atmosphere. Breakfast too, is impressive and served piping hot. All in all, whether a tourist or business guest, this place is on odds on favourite for overall quality and value.


Authentic + convenient.

Chester seems to wallow in an atmosphere of days gone by, at the turn of every corner. It's a popular tourist haunt and along with The Saddle; a real winner!

Negative Reviews


Mid-week starvery.

There are no evening meals here, mid-week. The sister establishment, 5 minutes away on foot, does serve food, as do numerous outlets in this city centre area.


NCP = No Chester Parking.

There are no hotel parking facilities here. You can, though, ‘drop off’ luggage, plus you can get from the hotel, a discount ticket for putting the car in the NCP car park, about 5 minutes walk away.


Historic room complaints.

They’re somewhat drab and cramped. General cleanliness is a bit of an issue; so too is heating which can be ineffective.
