6/10 Good

Very poor mattress
Everything about the stay was good or better than expected - all except the mattress on the bed which was really poor, far too soft for a couple to lay comfortably beside each other with rolling. Asking to change it (twice) got unsatisfactory responses so unfortunately its not a great review. Otherwise nice stay.

Chester stay
Check in ok but our room was dirty dust on skirting board dried coffee on skirting board and something spilt on bathroom wall the buffet was ok first night but the second night was left over pudding and the chive of dinner was very poor because of that we ate out the rest of our stay but we would have preferred to stay in the hotel if the food was of a better standard

8/10 Very Good

Very enjoyable stay
Maybe in need of a little refurbishment but great staff (especially the catering / bar staff), good location (for the Zoo etc), great pool for a hotel, good food and the accessible room was very well done (except maybe a walk in shower would be useful and there was no plug for the bath!). Suited us very well and we would definitely stay again.

2/10 Poor

First out in room farthest from reception and almost impossible to reach with cases for an elderly couple. Beds looked unchanged and untidy. Asked to be moved, and the second room was better, however it looked out onto a garden area which had not had the grass cut or tidied. Cups and trays lining corridors. Housekeeping supplies stacked in corridors :-( Breakfast ok, but slow to keep the breakfast options replenished. No understanding of their customers. Couldn’t leave fast enough!

4/10 Fair

Awful private cleaning company.
We booked 2 conjoining rooms as we have a disabled child and the hotel suited us very well in terms of lay out. When we arrived our room had been saturated in air freshener the other room was normal, it was so strong it hurt our throats but due to the room issue we couldn’t move. We found out why later on when discovered the mattress was really hard so took the sheet off to put another duvet underneath. We discovered to our horror that someone had clearly been very unwell on the bed and there was so much of it that the other side of the mattress was soiled as well. We complained to the night porter who explained that he didn’t have a replacement mattress because it was a king size and they didn’t have many but could put another duvet and a mattress protector on. It turned out they were out of mattress protectors. So I slept on the floor and my other half slept on a sofa bed. Day 2 we were told the mattress would be changed by the night porter and the hotel reception team. We came back to find the mattress had been flipped instead to the not quite so bad side. The manager the next morning told us that the company that does their cleaning hadn’t followed instructions and they were very sorry. The hotel decided not to charge us for our stay.
The good side of the light cream mattress
