Devonia Lodge Hotel
Excellent host and excellent hotel.
Lovely, cosy, stay with pleasant, friendly, helpful staff.
Room was very COSY and warm, Lovely and clean and looked like it was work in progress with decorating quite not finished, but that wasn't any problem to us. Only thing for me was NO full length mirror which a lady likes to use. Breakfast was lovely, piping hot and plentiful.
Value for money
Very poor value for money.
I would expect at least a table and chair for this price. I have paid less for en suite rooms with better facilities.
Basic b&b not far from central Chester
You get what you've pad for.
Rooms with the shared bathroom are small and reminds prison cells (both double and single). Hosts are trying to be welcoming, but I experienced much better attitude in other b&bs. Breakfast basic, not exactly the best one. I would not recommend the place, better to pay a bit extra. From the positive sides, good parking facilities.
Located for easy access into Chester.
Friendly staff. Clean and welcoming and overall value for money. Would stay again and would recommend.
VERY basic accommodation, but it was clean at least.
I had difficulty finding any room on this particular night,[near Christmas 'party' season] but would not stay here again. It was noisy and the room was sparse.Not even a chair in the room. Poor quality bed, so bad nights sleep.Comparable to youth hostel. I would rather pay a little more and would have done if there had been somewhere else.
Response from hotel
It’s always such a shame when guests don’t come and complain when they feel something is wrong and that they would rather create a spectacle on review sites! But like everything in life we have to take the rough with the smooth. I always think if something was only worth scoring a 1 out of 6 then surely you would say something at the time. Whilst we know we aren’t a quirky boutique hotel we are in fact a very friendly, family run B&B (of over 50 years) with a cosy newly & tastefully decorated lounge bar. We take
great exception that you would compare us to a youth hostel, we also get VERY good comments for our breakfasts. For you to give it 1 out of 6 is very puzzling. As we are a small B&B we feel that offering a guest a single room with use of a bathroom shared by one other room and a full English cooked breakfast plus a choice of cereals, toast, juice, tea or coffee, free parking and WiFi for a total of £40.00 is outstanding value for money in Chester. All beds are of a good standard and mattresses inspected regularly.
You also mentioned that it was noisy, on this particular night. We had a family of 7 staying in 3 different rooms with a very young baby. They used the bar when they came back from their meal and were laughing and joking which causes a certain level of noise but they were never raucous as their own baby was asleep upstairs in the room next to yours. The bar closed at 10.30pm. As you were at a works Christmas party we’re not sure what time you came in but we are on site 24/7 to be there for any problems guests may
encounter. We also spoke at breakfast as you were the first of 17 guests down that morning so you had a perfect opportunity to speak to us in private, such a shame!
