We had evening meal and breakfast. Had room only booking so had to pay for both meals which were very nice if a little expensive (breakfast £13.95) Had full English which was very hot and freshly cooked, serve yourself buffet for everything else with excellent selection. We shared a ploughman's at lunchtime which was enough for both of us

I hadn't been here for a long time but called in for lunch a few weeks ago. It was OK, nothing more and nothing less which is a shame as it's a really nice spot. One more thing... Despite it being listed on the Gourmet Society website they refused to take my card!

Great facilities, friendly staff, superb value for money and very close to Chester ! The Suite was simply enormous and very well equipped. Is this one of the best kept secrets in the UK ?

We had been let down by a local restaurant so reverted to the hotel. The food was of a hotel nature but pretty good, well served and tasty. Excellent hot espresso!! Not bad at all

Menu was average as was the prices. We both ordered steak and was good although nothing special. The atmosphere was a little flat and we had an issue with the next table constantly on their phones so we asked to move tables which was not an issue. They even gave us free desserts afterwards which showed they went the extra... More

Stayed her for 4 nights. Room ok size wise...bathroom layout not good...large area but not well lit or laid out. Room serviced every day.... Our room was on first floor facing car park and could get a bit noisy at varioys times what with arrivals and departures. Watch out for noise between room walls. We received a call at 8.35pm...

Not much atmosphere although staff were attentive after initially having to go to bar myself to request drinks. Menu was reasonable in choice of meat dished but could have done with a wider variety of fish choices. Main gripe though was 10% discretionary service charge put on to bill without this being advertised prior to booking or on menu.

I have visited the restaurant twice but haven't stayed in the hotel(which looks lovely). Unfortunately the restaurant misses the mark. The staff were brilliant though - no complaints there. Unfortunately the same can't be said of the food. The menu is in a time warp. The mussells starter was disappointing - mussells were tiny. Sauce was nice but the bread... More
