Short family break

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Nicola Families - 30/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We booked the Abbotts Well for its location, being near to local attractions and having a swimming pool for my son. The restaurant service and food was good, albeit a little slow, but as there is a shortage of staff this is fully understandable. The bar service wasn’t great from all team members and was incredibly slow, Adam was very good though. It is understandable that the cellar was struggling to keep cool but running out of post mix really was quite poor, with Sainsbury’s just round the corner a staff member should have been sent round to buy bottles of lemonade and coke etc, this would have stopped the amount of complaints from other guests. We stayed during the heatwave so the bedrooms were very hot, nothing could be done about this, housekeeping did kindly provide us with a second fan that did help my 9 year old get some sleep.

Friendly staff but room was falling apart

Customer review rating 3.0/5

S. Families - 30/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We thought the Breakfast was excellent. The hotel is in a perfect location with beautiful gardens. The room however was very disappointing, It was so warm in there with no Air conditioning working. The plaster underneath the window was hanging off the wall. I mentioned this to the staff at reception but nothing was done. We also found a small amount of rubbish underneath the bed but other than that the room was clean and tidy. The shower in the room took a long time to get warm And the pressure was Awful. The swimming pool was excellent and kept the kids entertained.

Very disappointing stay

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Iwan Couples - 27/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Positives - good location to explore Chester, nearby canal and Christleton - friendly staff - free parking Negatives - on arrival, we were advised that we had been upgraded to a privilege room. We had, in fact, booked a privilege room in the first place. However, on getting to the room, it was obviously not a privilege room, with none of the additional amenities expected in a privilege room. When we complained and showed Richard on reception the photos on the Accor website, we were informed that the room was a DBA ( whatever that is), that they were not in fact Accor but in fact a Jupiter hotel, such rooms did not exist in the hotel and it was impossible to move us as the hotel was full. Additional amenities were provided and we were compemstated for the confusion; however, as a first impression, it was not a good one! One of the reasons we chose the hotel was due to the outside area. We were keen to sit outside in the good weather but were disappointed to find no seating area ( again different to the images on website). When we queried this, we were informed that a prom party has destroyed the furniture the previous weekend. As a consequence, we walked into Christleton and spent our money elsewhere! There were a significant number of new staff in the hotel and this was very obvious. It is very unclear if they have received adequate training as they were very unsure of processes. For examples, asked in reception about arrangments to clean the room as was told that she didn’t know as there had been several lockdowns! Inconsistencies in room cleaning arrangements with room cleaned after first night but not after the second night. Difficult at times to get hold of additional towels - left message with reception but no luck! Coffee machine in room was not compatable with coffee pods provided.

Quiet, fulfilling breakfast with lots of options

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Paul L. Friends - 27/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very quiet hotel clean with comfy bed. Shower over bath and shower curtain. Good power and perfect temperature. Lots of space around basin. Fantastic cooked English breakfast which included black pudding and fried bread I enjoyed the peppered mushrooms although my fellow guests found them spicy. Good coffee at breakfast although only instant satchets in room. Hotel decor feels a bit tired altho probably early 2000’s. Out of town and nothing nearby which is a shame. For its comparison Travelodge/premier inn are better equipped etc. Although the food here is better. Due to Covid not allowed to approach the bar. Tried to order drinks but after 30 minutes gave up. Couldn’t use the spa either due to Covid.

Ideal for our trip

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Gemma Families - 27/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a lovely stay at your hotel in Chester. Staff were friendly, room was a good size, all proper beds and were comfy. Air con was a god send due to the heat and so we could keep windows closed to block out any noise over night. We were visiting the zoo which was only 10 minutes away and there was a local eatery with an outdoor play park ideal for my children.

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Karen Families - 26/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We have stayed with you many times over the years and most often in this particular hotel as it's convenient for visiting relatives. Although the staff are unfailing polite and helpful you have clearly not updated the rooms during the Covid closures. They were very tired and run down and definately not worth the £100 per night price tag we paid. This didn't even include breakfast! When we returned to our rooms on Friday no service had been done and when we queried it we were told this was another Covid measure. Well that's a joke! You didn't even leave more drink refills outside the door! A warning would have helped. No, customer service has been sacrificed and we won't be returning :(

We have stayed a number of times and have always found the staff friendly and helpful. My main gripe is £ 16.50 for a measly hamburger, a LOT over the top.

Disappointed, stayed as a virgin experience gift, what a waste that was of a gift. The room was in need of a refurb, chipped paint on the radiators, chipped enamel in the bath, sealant missing around the bath and the towel rail was falling apart. Definitely an experience.

delboy264 21/07/2021 TripAdvisor review

I wasn't impressed with the standard of the suite we stayed in however I found the majority of the staff to be excellent. Wasn't supplied with complimentary slippers, robe or newspaper as stated. Found bathroom to be very disappointing and had several other small issues throughout our stay. The stay just didn't live up to my expectations and unfortunately it's unlikely that I would return.

Good morning, delboy264, first of all my team and I are so sorry your stay wasn't perfect from arrival to depart. secondly if you could please email me your contact number and when would be a good time to call you that would be amazing once again please accept my sincere apologies and i really hope we will see you again Mark and the team mark.starkey@mercurechester.co.uk
