We have stayed in this hotel several times and our most recent stay did not disappoint our previous high opinion of this hotel. Conveniently situated right opposite the station and within easy walking distance of beautiful Chester, this hotel oozes charm, opulence and originality. We have always stayed in the Kings annex, the rooms being opulent, spacious and decorated to an incredibly high standard. The bed could not have been more comfortable and the bathroom was large, immaculate and classy with a fabulously huge bathtub (so many hotels nowadays are putting in slimline baths which don't encourage relaxation) as well as a massive free standing shower. We booked the stay, wine and fine option this time, which included dinner and a free drink each. Dinner, served in the modern but classy smaller restaurant in the kings annex was excellent quality. You do need to read and consider the unusual choices carefully to ensure clarity, but the staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and well trained, and the dishes beautifully and creatively presented, as well as mostly very tasty. No complaints re value for money whatsoever. And a free after dinner drink in the historical lounge was greatly appreciated. The hotel is beautifully decorated, in keeping with it's history, and the communal rooms are beautiful, as are the outdoor spaces. Breakfast was also wonderful : lots of choice, well cooked and I loved the made to order omelettes! Our 3rd stay, this time with friends, and we will definitely be back. Thanks again, the Kings at the Queen hotel! less
