Overview

Hallmark Hotel The Queen, Chester is filled with quirky features that reference its Victorian heritage -- look out for the reception desk made out of antique suitcases and bar menus resembling train tickets. There is also a chandelier in the lobby that includes the names of past queens.

The hotel is in the centre of Chester. Lonely Planet describes the city as "one of English history's greatest gifts" because of its medieval architecture and collection of Tudor- and Victorian-era buildings, all encapsulated by a red sandstone Roman wall.

The hotel is opposite Chester railway station, and a 10-minute walk from Chester Cathedral -- founded as a Benedictine abbey in 1092 -- where you can take a tour to the top of the bell tower for panoramic views of the city.

Chester Zoo, with over 15,000 animals from 500 different species including Asian elephants, jaguars and orangutans, is 10 minutes' drive away. 

Chester Racecourse, the oldest racecourse still in use in England, is a 20-minute stroll away.

One of the hotel's restaurants -- The King's Grill -- holds two AA Rosettes and serves locally sourced food. Breakfast is served in the Jubilee Restaurant and snacks are available in the Waiting Room Bar.

The hotel has secluded Roman-themed gardens, three bars, a fitness suite and free Wi-Fi.

waiting to book in the couple in front were given lots of info re the lay out of the hotel, what times meals were ,where to eat, how to get to Chester centre etc, we got nothing! Upon booking in all we got was this is your room number and its down this corridor. We went shopping and returned to the hotel and decided to eat in the restaurant, when we entered we were told we SHOULD have booked and that they would try and fit us in! We were seated eventually, but at the end of the meal I was told we had to pay as no "tab" had been set up, not a very nice ending to the evening. I queried the drink, early/late check in and upgrade (of which there was plenty available) to be told it wasn't on the system so it couldn't be done! I am upset that this was all paid for six months ago and we did not get the service that we had paid for.

A Victorian building showing signs of need for refurbishment in some areas. Small very slow lift. Comfortable but unexciting rooms. Large busy breakfast room with good selection of quality buffet items. Helpful reception staff.

Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. However was never offered our complimentary drinks in the waiting room bar. Food in the Kings Grill was beautiful and staff in there very helpful and attentive. Did have to ask for an second mug in our room for tea and coffee though. Breakfast then next day was lovely. Our room looked nice from first impressions but ceiling paint and artex was peeling off quiet substantially. also had a leaking sink in the bathroom which was dripping alll night. Was never offered a room change because of this but only had to put up with the drippping for one night.
