            I needed to stay one night in that specific location in Chester - to that end it served my purpose

            On paper, reasonably priced; arguably managed to tick the boxes, however this is bottom end accommodation, beware they accept coach tours. I have stayed in far superior B&B's for this price.

            Reception staff polite and helpful, quick check in/out. Buffet breakfast has good selection of food.

            Housekeeping standard very poor during stay, complaint seemed to go unheeded as problems weren't attended to. Advertised buffet breakfast not provided on last morning of stay, food served by waiter cold and poorly cooked. One barman at free bar resulted in very long queues, bar area poorly lit and limited seating.

            All the staff I met were great - friendly, helpful and cheerful. Breakfast was good and waiting staff particularly helpful. There was a male receptionist when I checked out on Sunday - who was also really helpful. As with most areas - you can overlook things if staff make the difference - and the staff (including cleaner who got me an ironing board) were brilliant and turned the experience into a positive one.

            rust on the towel holder in the bathroom, heavy dust in parts of the bedroom, there was no temperature control in the bedroom - it was like a greenhouse - but too cold to open the window. Bed was very uncomfortable. No remote control for the television. All this said, the staff made up for all of this.

            Nothing. In answer to Question 5 below: I would recommend a visit to the city Chester but not a stay at the Westminster Best Western.

            I booked to stay 2 nights and left after the first night to stay at another hotel because of the noise. Radiator heating cannot be turned down. Shaving lights not working. Staff not around at nights to obtain room key. Unfriendly staff. Bad decor. Room and bathroom lights poorly lit. Moved to the Premier Inn, where I should have stayed from the start - a modern and professional hotel.

            Food was excellent, Very Nice room, Comfortable, Near to town centre and train station.

            Was a bit too hot (central heating) Reception staff (women) not very friendly ie didnt acknowledge you as you passed, the en did though.

          • Older travelers

            The hotel had character which is often missing in chain hotels. For a central hotel it was very quiet and peaceful. Room and bed both very spacious and comfortable.

            Can't think of anything, all was fine during our short stay.

            The staff were very approachable and helpful, the rooms were quiet and you couldn't hear other guests, the beds were very comfortable too.

            The over sensitive fire alarm meant we were awoken at 6am by someone's shower steam! Apparently this happens quite often according to the girl at the front desk. Better to be over sensitive though I'd say.

            Breakfast was very good and the free bar also good.

            I booked the execuite suite after having stayed in the hotel in august 2010. My stay in 2010 was very good. I wasen't very happy this time. The advertised flat screen tv did not work properly and had lines and picture break up all the time so was unwatchable. Also the ipod docking station did not have a radio as advertised.. This disappointed me as this was the reason i upgraded.

            I thought the room was really tatty considering we had paid £109 without breakfast. The bathroom was mouldy and the room was so small we could barely walk around the bed
