Unfortunately our overall stay was very disappointing for the short space of time we were actually at the hotel.
The hotels priority is clearly the weddings that take place with no consideration whatsoever for paying guests. We were given a room (417) directly beneath the wedding party and the noise continued on until 1:30am. The music stopped at around midnight, which was fine, but then it sounded like a building site....there was constant banging and what sounded like someone dropping lead weights from a height. I must add that on arrival we were advised by the receptionist that a wedding was taking place purely to inform us of the facilities that were unavailable i.e. the restaurant, but no mention of the noise considering where our room was located.
It surprises me that it hasn't been suggested to offer these rooms to the wedding party, just a thought. If it couldn't get any worse, to my annoyance the remote control wasn't working so my poor exhausted husband who drove a little over 4 hours from London to Chester was up and down changing the channels. I mentioned this to the receptionist on checking out and she said 'oh dear' she'll get someone to take a look....not even an apology or thank you for letting her know. Again, she too busy worrying about the next arrival of the wedding party. I understand that weddings generate a considerable amount of revenue but I also think it is important to treat 'all' your paying guests fairly. We eventually got to sleep around 3am only to be woken up by the loud ringing of hotel alarm at 9 o'clock, which turned out to be a false alarm. At this point sleep deprivation has kicked in and being 4 months pregnant I regretted booking with aBode especially as it was supposed to be a little treat for our wedding anniversary. At this point I am looking forward to breakfast, which we paid an additional £15 each. We ordered it to our room and it arrived on time, a good start. I ordered the hot continental breakfast and my husband the cold. The baguette was literally dipped and dripping in butter but having paid £15 I attempted to eat some if it seeing as I paid for it.....it was a mistake as I spent the rest of the time in the bathroom being sick. So including our parking (£12.50) we paid a total of £155 for the above, would you pay.
Poor choice of artwork and no TV remote...
The artwork in our room was of a processional cross which was inappropriate considering that this may offend some guests depending on their backgrounds.
I had to request that glasses were cleaned (after the cleaner had been in) as they hadn't been cleaned since the previous day.
There was no TV remote and the manager couldn't seem to find us a replacement... On the positive side, the food was very good.
