DIRTY ROOM

tjhall01 27/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Hotel and staff were very good friendly and service was good the hotel in parts was worn and old the room was good but showed signs of wear and needs refurbishment - the room was nice with a very good bed but the dust ws not so good looks as though room hadn't been used for a long time

Two night stay

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

gerryma730 20/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Bed comfortable - nice to have staffed reception counter and help to take case to room. Also pleased that breakfast buffet is back, good breakfast. Apart from that the hotel is a bit tired and not immaculate, and the room was cold. Nowhere to put things in the bathroom except the floor. As an oldie I would have appreciated a grab rail on the bathroom wall to help to step in and out of the bath/shower.

Dear Gerryma731 Thank you for taking the time to provide your review following your recent stay with us here at the Mercure Abbots Well. Great to see that you were happy to see the breakfast buffet back. I am however sorry to hear that you found the room cold whilst you were here. I do hope that you will visit the hotel again when next visiting. Yours sincerely

A disappointing stay

RAM1058 17/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

This was a 2 day stop on route to a Channel Ferry. The hotel looks tired and dated in all aspects. The room was comfortable but the shower pressure varied from low to non existent, even after a visit from maintenance. The staff appeared very inexperienced, we were refused a dinner booking on our first night because we hadn't pre booked dinner on the Accor App, a feature that doesn't exist. The hotel is located next to a park & ride which was excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay, we do value all feedback that we recieve here at the hotel and ensure practices are put into place to continually improve both the standards and service that we deliver. I am sorry to hear that you were turned away from making a booking on your first night here with us, please accept our apologies on this.

Stephen Y 16/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

This was a return visit and we were well looked after but having visited the hotel on at least a dozen occasions my, is it tired. It’s in a good location in a great city and has the potential to be so much more were it not stuck in an 80s or 90s rut. Great and attentive staff are hampered by their surroundings. The facilities get an average from me.

Dear Stephen thank you for taking the time to provide your review following your recent stay with us here at the hotel. It's great to see that you have used us on numerous occasions, thank you especially for your comments relating to the staff, I am sorry you feel it is over dated. I do hope that this will not deter you from returning to us again in the future. Yours Sincerely

Excellent special diet catering

mhurley142 02/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Excellent special diet catering, helpful friendly staff to boot but the rooms not good. Cleanliness left much to be desired and the ground floor rooms were very noisy until 4.00am. The heating was not working, no in room controls and I couldn't sleep with the noise and cold.

Dear Mhurley142 Thank you for taking the time to provide your review, I was please we were able to meet your dietary requirements whilst you were here at the hotel, I remember taking with you and your party during breakfast, I hope that you all enjoyed your trip to the zoo and had a safe journey back to Milton Keynes.

This hotel is extremely dated and tired looking. The breakfast is passable but I would not recommend the food served at the bar or Brassiere. The staff however are very helpful and do the best they can.

Pjh Couples - 11/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hotel well located on edge of Chester for a city stay visit, useful to have Chester Park & Ride very close. Hotel was clean and well presented and staff helpful. Our experience was spoiled by there being large groups in the hotel having been at Chester races during the day and partying through the night until 03:00 in the bar / lounge area. The hotel in room allocation should have recognised us not being part of these groups and they placed us in room 114, nearest to the bar area and so prevented us from getting any sleep at all until well after 03:00

Came up for a Stag weekend and had a pleasant stay. The lady who was on reception at the time of booking in was very helpful with a good sense of humour. The bar area in the hotel is very good which also boasts a pool table. My room was adequate for my stay although could do with a lick of paint as was quite tired looking. Overall though I had a nice stay and would return if ever in the area again.

Disappointed Y. Friends - 10/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Not a four star at all. Dirty dirty dirty To say our health comes first not true. There is no way it was Covid clean, you need retraining! Dust an inch thick, spider webs and spiders in room. Shabby all the way through the hotel. Not sure what was on the curtains yuk. Dogs allowed to stay not informed of this and my husband is asthmatic so you could have caused him a hospital visit. Breakfast cold had to have it microwaved £20 what the hell. Two nights at nearly £200 total rip off. You say you will address things in your feed back... You have not, and I doubt you will. Give me Premier Inn all the way. Wish we had never seen inside your hotel

Kevin Couples - 10/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The staff are very pleasant and helpful. The food was good and plentiful. However the hotel does need updating the decor is quite shabby and the room could have been cleaner. The pool and gym facilities are good. The location is really good with the park and ride just around the corner and just £2 return. In my opinion overall I would I would say that we had a pleasant stay but it is not a 4 star hotel.

Terry F. Business - 07/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I attended a conference and stayed overnight, the day before. The bedroom was small, but perfectly fine for my needs and the conference facilities (including a very good lunch) were excellent. The gym was also very good. All the staff I encountered were courteous and helpful. My only gripe is that, having travelled 200 miles, I was not able to get a restaurant table due to a wedding party that had booked the entire restaurant. The alternatives on offer (room service and bar menu) were very limited and therefore I had to find a local restaurant to get a decent meal. Please be aware that it is a natural expectation that guests who might have travelled a distance and be tired and unfamiliar with the locality, are looking forward to a relaxing restaurant dinner. It was very frustrating to be told that this was not possible.

I am however sorry to hear that you were not accommodated in the restaurant and had to make alternative arrangements due to not wanting to dine within the bar area, we do value all the feedback and look at putting other procedures in place following this. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely,

Service was not great, rooms weren’t clean and needs a good renovation. For the price paid and the expectation of a Mercure, the standard of the hotel was poor. Location was good for what we needed but won’t stay here again.

Veronica Couples - 05/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The food was generally good except for the first night where it was a bit basic but the two nights after that had a great selection. The pool facilities were great and we used them all 3 days of our stay Location was a bit out of town but the park and ride was handy and in walking distance. There were a lot of rowdy people at 3.oo in the morning shouting in the corridor Saturday night which woke us up.

The location was excellent. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The pool facilities, when they were open during our stay were great and breakfast was great too. It may be the location and nature of guests, but we were staying as a young family and there seemed to be a lot of guests smoking, drinking around and by the foyer each time we arrived/ left depending on time. The room decor was also a little dated and worn, and the carpet seemed to need a bit more of a clean. Overall though we were happy with the visit.

Expected much higher standards for £130+ per room. Rooms were very small for the price. Our curtains had god knows what all over them, I’ll assume it was food or drink from a previous guest but I’m not so sure. Staff and breakfast were both great as was the restaurant area, we only stayed for one night but it was not worth the price.

Dear Abbott J., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Mercure Chester Abbots Well Hotel. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback.

During our overnight stay, we were overall very pleased. However, the was a lot of sound transfer through the walls and ceiling of our room (room123). There was locked adjoining door between our room and the next, which meant i could hear the people snoring from the other room. The staff and service was very good.
