Good value for money
Tommy on reception couldn't do enough for us & was very helpful throughout our stay.
My only gripe was the sausages for breakfast, they weren't very nice. Overall a good value for money hotel
The hotel is well situated for access to major roads and so makes access to Chester and North Wales very easy.
Room was clean and had everything we needed. Didn't have evening meal but saw some plates come out and it looked good. Breakfast was buffet style, basic but perfectly adequate for our needs.
Convenient location between travelling
Great location to conveniently stop over and explore Chester on our way back from Wales.
Dogs allowed which is a great bonus, make sure you look for dog friendly places to eat out as dogs cannot be left unattended if you leave the hotel. We didn't have chance to look at or use the spa facilities but heard and read good reviews. Rooms are surprisingly big for the money paid, great value. Plenty of pilliwsm small wardrobe but adequate for a couple of nights, desk and two chairs, large window letting in plenty if light but with added blind alongside curtains to block it out when needed. The bathroom was a decent size for a hotel, clean with fresh towels,liquid soap and shampoo supplied. Breakfast was average, a few pastries or fruit cocktail would have been welcomed. But saying that there was enough choice to please anyone, cooked, cereal, yoghurt, apples and oranges, toast and preserves, tea, coffee and juice. All staff were pleasant and helpful, welcoming and friendly. Whilst this hotel is conveniently placed next to very busy roads (with a pub opposite) there was very little noise, even with the windows open. Would definitely stay again.
Cheap, and you can tell
Accommodation was ok, room was adequate, but not particularly clean.
Bathroom looked liked it might have been cleaned a few days before my stay. Dining area was a little 'tired' and the seats were dirty; both ground in grime and fresh food crumbs from the previous occupants. Food was edible, but was clearly microwave meals. Breakfast was very good though, for the money. Help yourself buffet, both continental and cooked options.
This is an ok place to stay if you just want somewhere to sleep for one night after arriving late, and then heading off first thing next morning.
great value clean rooms
All great, Pool even better after a long day.
Business Trip / Overnight stay
I booked the room for a business trip and arrived at the hotel at 9.15pm.
The restaurant was closed, but a limited menu was on offer (pizza's) but I didn't order any of the food. Breakfast was buffet style and very busy due to many families staying at the hotel (Easter holidays). Although I only had tea and toast, there appeared to be a fair selection of hot food on offer.
Sat Nav's don't seem to like the hotel postcode and doesn't take you to where the hotel is located.
The hotel should really update it's website explaining a better postcode to use when getting there by sat nav. We arrived 25 mins before check in which we thought the receptionist may have let us check in even if we couldn't go to the room just yet. She explained we couldn't check in until the check in time (25 mins away!) when we asked if we could at least leave our bags she looked shocked that we asked, which i didn't think was an unreasonable request. The room was basic but clean. Later when we asked if we could book a taxi to take us into the city centre we were advised there was a wait time of 2 hours for taxis. The receptionist was really helpful though and when a cancellation came a long she booked it for us straight away which was great customer service.
The room was supposed to have a hair dryer which was missing. The receptionist did bring one up to the room for us though. There was also a pool at the hotel however when we arrived we were told there were swimming lessons taking place 8 to 10 am so we couldn't use at these times, check out time was 11 so didn't really give us time to use this facility. Overall the hotel wasn't bad but i think there is room for improvement
Staff really polite room was good comfy night
Much nicer hotels available.
We were not impressed with the hotel, from the moment walking into reception to be greeted by a mumbling member of staff, to the room which was not as clean as possible, mould around the bath and big crumbs on the floor.
The room had an adjoining door and we were woken by their residents singing loudly at 07.00hrs. Breakfast was not included in the price and if we chose to have it the price differed on the different days.
Days Hotel Chester North, formerly the Gateway to Wales Hotel
unfortunately we were disturbed by a child shouting on the landing outside our bedroom,the door next to our bedroom at times was allowed to bang shut,and a workman decided to use a chainsaw to cut some small trees down in the field under the bedroom,thair was no facility to make a cup of tea in the bedroom which is standard i believe in most premier inns.other than that the room was comfortable and clean also a nice welcome from the young lady on reception
