What to Look for When Choosing Your Hotel in Chester

Published

Whether you’re after a romantic getaway or a night out with friends, Chester has a little bit of something for everyone. But when it comes to booking your hotel, there are a number of different considerations to take into account. Would you rather stay centrally or do you prefer the outskirts? What attractions do you intend to visit? These are just a few of the questions to ponder.

We have created a list showcasing the benefits you should look out for when choosing your perfect hotel in Chester.

Where do you want to be based?

The most obvious question to ask yourself first and foremost is what would make the ideal location for your stay. Chester isn’t the biggest of towns and has good transport links in and around the area so getting to and from locations won’t be an issue. That said, you should still determine where is the best area to stay and in particular, what activities you intend to do during your stay. If a relaxing getaway is your priority, then you may not be venturing far from the hotel. On the flip side, you might instead be looking for a night out in the town and would prefer to be close to the nightlife action.

Are you after picturesque views? Then Chester is the perfect destination for you with stunning sights all around. At the Townhouse Hotel we are just minutes away from the beautiful River Dee as well as some of the town’s best boutiques, restaurants and bars. Our hotel features historic Roman walls and boasts views of Tudor and Victorian architecture.

Dining during your stay

You won’t struggle to find lush places to eat during your stay in Chester. Whether you fancy Chinese, Pizza, Steakhouse or Italian, you’ll find something to suit. There’s even a range of quaint cafes perfect for grabbing a bite to eat in peaceful surroundings. But what about when you fancy a late night snack or don’t want to head out to eat? Consider the food options available at your hotel before making a booking.

We are delighted to be able to host our very own restaurant. The Brassiere 1699 is the epitome of stylish fine dining which serves only the very best in fresh local produce. Our menu features light bites, soups, main courses such as beef sirloin steak, and sweet desserts for afters. We also have a relaxing lounge area and a secret garden for when guests want enjoy our delicious menu in a different type of surrounding.

Who will you be staying with?

Your decision making of course won’t be complete without deciding what is best for those who will be joining you on your trip to Chester. For couples, the decision can be pretty straightforward as only two people need to be accommodated. The main question to answer will be whether you opt for single or double beds and how premium the room will be. For instance, at the Townhouse, we offer a Classic room right through to a Superior room which brings an added layer of comfort. Should you have children, then a Family room would be of more use to you, another one of our options.

Things get a little more complicated when large groups are travelling and not every hotel is equipped to deal with this type of capacity. You should always check that not only is there enough accommodation and facilities for your group, but that the hotel can still achieve your overall satisfaction. We recognise the need to cater to multiple party sizes and are delighted to host Chester’s first party pad. Our luxury apartments can sleep up to nine guests and offer all the facilities you need to have a good night.

Make the most of dedicated packages

If your visit is to primarily commemorate a special occasion, check with the hotel to see if they have any special packages available. This will typically allow you to receive exclusive access to areas of the hotel and special features just for you, all for a bundled price.

The Townhouse Hotel can create packages to suit your needs. If your wedding day is approaching, we can help make it the dream event. Perhaps you have a baby on the way?
