Address: 20-24 City Road, Chester, CH1 3AE, United Kingdom

Star rating:

3.8

Everything you need from a hotel with very cheap rates if you book early.

You know exactly what you’re getting with a Premier Inn, and while that cuts out the element of surprise, it’s also a positive if you’re simply after a comfortable and clean bedroom. I’m a fan of the air-conditioning here; not many hotels in Chester boast it. It’s not exactly a deal-breaker when it comes to booking a hotel, but it’s a nice bonus.

Location

Between the train station and the city centre, the hotel is convenient for both. Late at night I’d avoid the subways that connect the hotel to the city – there are overground alternatives.

Bedrooms

The Premier Inn standard – crisp white linen with a purple bedspread, purple wall art and a purple headboard, can you spot the theme? Half the rooms offer a bath and shower, half shower only – express your preference. There are open wardrobes, full-length mirrors, a small hospitality tray and flat-screen televisions, and some rooms can accommodate up to two children. Buildings, roads and the internal walls of the hotel greet guests looking out of the bedroom windows, but this is a good place to base yourself, rather than luxuriate in your room.

Eating and drinking

There’s a Costa Coffee concession within the restaurant/bar/reception area. An all you can eat buffet breakfast costs £7.95 – though children under 15 eat for free.

Service

Pleasant, if purely functional.

Who stays there

A mix of business visitors during the week and leisure visitors on a budget at all other times.

Price advice

Book very early to take advantage of extremely low rates. All rates are room only.
