Overview

A Victorian former railway hotel, Hallmark Hotel The Queen, Chester is filled with quirky features that reference its 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 opposite Chester railway station and 10 minutes' walk from the city centre. Lonely Planet describes Chester as "one of English history's greatest gifts" because of its medieval architecture and collection of Tudor- and Victorian-era buildings, all enclosed within red standstone walls that date from the Roman era. Walking the walls is a great way to get to know the city.

Chester Cathedral was founded as a Benedictine abbey in 1092. We recommend taking a tour of the bell tower for panoramic views of the city from 125 feet above the ground.

Chester Racecourse, the oldest racecourse still in use in England, is a 20-minute stroll away. Chester Zoo, with over 15,000 animals from 500 different species including Asian elephants, jaguars and orangutans, is 10 minutes' drive away.

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

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

We went on the weekend of Ladies day so it was quite expensive for one night but I guess that makes sense!

The room was really quiet and overlooked the street.

We booked two nights separately, the first night we had an allowance to the three course dinner. We asked if we could have this for the second night and the receptionist asked the Manager and they said no, which I thought was not very accommodating.

Our upgraded room and the proximity to the railway station
Other Comments
We were disappointed at first having booked a package that included an evening mealie October to be told via Travelzoo that this element of the package would be cancelled with only 6 days before we were due to travel. The hotel did redeem itself with a refund and room upgrade and very pleasant Reception staff. We also really enjoyed Chester and hope to return in the Spring/summer.
