Expert review of Curzon Hotel

A small and traditional hotel, with homely personal touches and great service.

A number of Yvonne and Gordon Mitchell’s guests at the Curzon Hotel have remarked: “It’s like being in somebody’s house”. I couldn’t agree more. And while the traditional, some might say “chintzy”, style isn’t to my personal taste, I know plenty of people who love little imprints of personality in the 16 bedrooms such as a cuddly toy on each bed, hat-boxes atop wardrobes, ornaments, tissue box covers and trinket boxes. Another word that constantly crops up is “comfortable”; it certainly is, and the hotel – built in 1867 - makes for a cosy base during a visit to Chester.

Location: 

Within walking distance of the city centre (10-15 minutes), the hotel is on a main residential road, which stretches towards Wales, though traffic noise isn’t an issue.

Bedrooms: 

High ceilings and huge windows add to the large size of the rooms to create a really strong sense of space and light. And while they could never be described as modern, each of the differently styled rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Ask for views of the Welsh hills, and for a treat, upgrade to one of two rooms with a four-poster bed. A number of really large family rooms are also available and kids are made to feel most welcome.

The Curzon is a traditional hotel - with 16 rooms, it's good for small groups as well, but the owners are approachable and friendly so you can be sure of good and attentive service however many of you there are. It's got a decent-sized bar, with pool table, and plenty of on-site parking as well. Location-wise it's on Hoole Road, which I'd say is around 15 mins walking time to the centre of Chester, but an easy cab ride. The thing that struck me most here is how friendly and genuine the owners were. Nothing seems too much trouble and they have been running the hotel for 13 years so as a guest you are in capable hands staying here.
