Good location for catching up with family

We received a good welcome, and were very happy with the size and overall decoration of the room. The one jarring note was the leak in the bathroom ceiling, which appeared when the occupant overhead ... more

Almost perfect

25/11/2015 Drooper901, Chester, United Kingdom

Arrived late on a wet night having booked a superior room. Check in was fine and was given a room on the 1st floor. I must say that the room was very well presented and the bed and pillows very comfor... more

Simon C, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Cedar Court Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Drooper901, Many thanks for your kind and positive review and I was pleased to read we managed "Almost Perfect", particularly as 2 points made are immediately resolved. Firstly we have a huge car park at the back of the hotel in addition to that at the front so parking here is never ever a problem, that's a promise. Secondly, whilst all of our rooms are doubles (or twins) we set them for the expected occupancy regards toweling etc however there is always a second set of towels in a sealed bag in the wardrobe for anyone wanting two sets; aside from that, Reception are always happy to run more provisions of any sort up to a room on request. Breakfast is normally spot on so I can only apologise if you caught it just off perfection but I note you've said you'll definitely visit again and I do hope that'll be very soon and I look forward to hitting a 5/5 review from you next time! Sincere thanks again and look forward to having you back. Simon J Cotton General Manager
