Dating back to 1650, Macdonald New Blossoms Hotel is an elegant hotel in Chester city centre, near the famous Eastgate Clock -- believed to be the most photographed clock in England after Big Ben.

Chester was originally the site of the largest Roman fortress in Britain, and the city walls that encircled it are less than five minutes' walk away.

Chester Racecourse, believed to be the oldest racecourse still in use in England, is a 10-minute stroll away. Chester Roman Amphitheatre -- Britain's largest Roman amphitheatre -- is 150 metres away and is the site of seasonal military re-enactments.

Erddig Hall, an 18th century country house, is 30 minutes' drive away and the National Trust's Little Moreton Hall, an iconic Tudor manor house, moat and manicured knot garden, is just over an hour's drive away.

The contemporary 1650 St Johns Restaurant serves international cuisine made with locally sourced seasonal produce. The lounge also offers a range of cocktails.

The 67 individually decorated rooms have period features and come with free Wi-Fi. High room categories include bathrobes and slippers, a Nespresso machine and an iPod dock.

Room very clean but showing signs of wear. Looked tired & a little dated. No atmosphere in the restaurant as it was so quiet. If breakfast hadn't been included I certainly wouldn't have bothered. £19.50 per person was breath taking with the added cheek of £2.75 supplement if you wanted smoked haddock or kippers. Staff were great but we had to find someone when we wanted a drink from the bar. We would probably go back because of the location & only if there was a good deal.
