Having recently undergone a multimillion-pound refurbishment, this prestigious hotel with excellent location (just a short distance from the centre of Chester) oozes Victorian elegance with all the amenities and facilities you would expect from a hotel of this calibre. Guest rooms benefit from cable television, high speed internet access and a games console, and when you’re not enjoying them there is an onsite gym and restaurant as well as gardens to explore at your leisure. A business centre complete with fax and photocopying services is also available for guests use.
There are an abundance of tours available to explore the city of Chester, but for a relaxing and unique perspective you should take a Chesterboat River cruise. Choose between a half hour or a two hour cruise with the captains commentary or you can combine it with a bus tour so you can explore the city throughout. Every Saturday evening, the cruise supplies a barbeque dinner and disco- perfect for socialising with friends and family.
Highlights of Chester include Chester Cathedral which dates back to 1093 and Chester Racecourse, a great day out for anyone interested in horse racing or indeed first timers who want to experience the electrifying atmosphere the sport commands. History buffs should ensure they squeeze in a visit to the Cheshire Military Museum, which details the regions role during various battles and wars including WWI and WWII. In the evening, enjoy pre-dinner cocktails at the Arkle Bar and Lounge at the Chester Grosvenor before heading for dinner at Michael Caines restaurant at Abode which overlooks the racecourse with floor to ceiling windows. Those looking to continue the evening should head to Rosies nightclub with three floors each playing different music so you’re bound to find something you like.
Gulliver’s World theme park is situated in nearby Warrington and is the perfect place to take children between 2 and 13 years of age.

For older children, Go Ape! Tree Top Adventure at Delamere Forest is a must! This award winning outdoor experience gives you the chance to swing through the trees like Tarzan and navigate your way across rope bridges and zip slides all in the forest canopy, 120 feet from the ground!
