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.

Public areas

A large lounge bar with pool table and a green and blossoming back garden.

Eating and drinking

The Langdale Restaurant is residents-only and head chef Michelle Barron does a sterling job with local ingredients – including some fruit and veg from the Curzon’s own garden.

Service

Friendly and most welcoming, nothing is too much trouble.

Who stays there

Mostly leisure guests, lots of regulars and families.

Price advice

Breakfast and parking included (there are ample spaces at the back of the hotel). There’s a two-night minimum during race events.
