Staff were very friendly and courteous throughout.

No real complaint about the accommodation though the bathroom ceiling is in need of repair as was the coating in the bath with the cracks therein giving some cause for concern as to possible leakage (non reported). Breakfasts were OK and dinner likewise without being in any way other than decent pub food. Venue would benefit from having a guest lounge and suffers from being located where two busy roads join with heavy traffic noisy as it accelerates away from the junction.

Ye Olde Boote Inn

The inn, overlooking moat/pond to castle, is run by a lovely friendly family who go out of their way to ensure your stay is as stress free and enjoyable as possible.

Hospitality/food/drink can't be faulted. Tasty meals cooked as you like them and served promptly. Room stayed in clean, homely and comfortable but en- suite in need of a bit of tlc. ( we're talking of slow filling cistern, slow hot water to sink, trims around bath and shower.....noticeable but can be lived with). Flat screen tv and tea making facilities. Good base for visiting local area, Chester, Shrewsbury, and National Trust properties. I am very happy both to recommend Inn and stay there again.

Older Boots Inn

No shower gel, no shampoo, very noisy from both the bar and the road.

Response from hotel

We are sorry that our guests could not find the complimentary baskets of shampoo, shower gel, shaving foam, razors, tooth paste and brushes, deodorant , hairspray, cotton buds, hairdryers and irons; that are provided for all our residential customers. We would encourage any one staying to please ask us for anything they require, and we will endevour to provide for them, at the time. It is a little late to complain after departure, when help is readily available from our staff through the stay.

What a fantastic break we had at Ye old boote inn.

Staff were absolutely superb, so friendly and helpful, the live music at the end was brilliant ( as were the free samples of real ale!). The inn is on a lovely spot right outside the castle. Room was spotless and a lovely touch by the owners to have all shampoos, toothbrushes and toothpaste etc all available for free to use. Also has the best collection of Jack Daniels bottles (full) I have ever seen. Highly recommended, Thankyou to all the staff for a lovely trip!

Great little hotel

This is the second time we've stayed here and we were impressed once again.

It's in a perfect location for visiting family in Ellesmere. The breakfast was lovely on both occasions. We will be continuing to book to stay here every time we visit our family.
