Historical Traveler Reviews The Delafield Hotel
We read about this place in an old Fodors and were surprised to see how much better it is today. The hospitality was wonderful, breakfast great, and rooms luxuriously appointed.
Simply the best
We stayed at the hotel in February and found that we could only compliment the owners on everything from the first greeting, the beautifully decorated rooms , the lounge you felt at home in and then there was the food. Wow! Impeccably served and flavour bursting from every course a wine list to die for and deserving a Mitchellin star rather than 2 AA rosettes. A truly relaxing place and worth every penny. We will be back sooner rather than later.
Just a most perfect hotel - one of the best I have stayed in anywhere in the world. Fully deserving of all the awards it has received.
My husband and I stayed here in September 2004 and our experience was absolutely wonderful. I couldn't believe how beautiful and comfortable our room was. And the food!!! It couldn't have been better. Janet, Philip, and Wendy were so accomodating and helpful that our visit was perfect. I would stay here again, for sure! Every time I think about our stay, I just have to smile.
Hyped up B & B
Premises clean and tidy, however very disappointed when i was shown my double room (standard) in the main lodge. It was on the top floor, no heating on, carpet worn, tiny bathrooom and generally not of the high standard i had expected. Other rooms may have been better. The suite next to me where my parents stayed was fine. When i complained to the owner he was very offended and did not reply in a proper manner. I was shocked with his reponse. I also found it poor value for money - just a hyped up run of the mill B&B.
The most amazing small hotel that you will ever visit
My boyfriend and I spent our third year anniversary at The Green Bough and from the moment we walked through the door the staff were extremely helpful, chatty, polite and cannot do enough for you. Anything that you want they will do it for you, they advise you on where is good to go, on how to get to the city (which isnt far at all). Every part of the hotel is spotless and all the staff are just brilliant, they are so friendly and enquire into how your trip is and what you have been doing, they make you feel right at home. I would reccommend this hotel to anyone who is going to chester and can assure you that you will have a great time there..
Our anniversary weekend away was made even more special, by the suroundings and staff of this wonderfull hotel.
The food was nothing like we'd tasted before.
The hotel was spotlessly clean, well decorated, comfortable and very relaxing.
The staff were helpful polite and very knowledgible about the produce and the local area.
There was only one small thing that could have been improved, we were lucky enough to have a very hot weekend and there is no air con in the dinning room, something which I hope they rectify.
A small little treasure in a wonderful city.
No children ... No smoking ... No mobile phones ...
The Green Bough is a quality small hotel which boasts genuine 5-star service. Nthing is too much trouble for the staff. Our stay was made even better by the hotel's strict policy of no kids, no smoking and no mobile phones! However, it suffers from being located on a busy road approximately one mile outside of the Roman Walls.
The most beautiful hotel in a beautiful city
The city of Chester boasts the Roman walls, the historical Rows, a spectacular town hall, a truly beautiful cathedral and ... the Green Bough Hotel. And what a little gem of a hotel! While it is located along a road of sub-standard B&Bs some 1000 meters from the walled city itself, its sublime decor, rich furnishings, spotless cleaniness, efficieny/friendly service and outstanding food are unparalleled in a city not known for providing quality accommodation/food nor value for money. It is a credit to Chester ... now if only someone could do something about the litter and dog excrement which fouls the 1000 meter walk to downtown.
Green Bough Hotel
A most tastefully decorated and superbly run small Victorian hotel, within 15 minutes walk of Chester city centre. A heaven from the stresses of modern life - no children or smoking allowed and mobile phones are not permitted in the public areas!
The food is excellent +!!!! Proprietor and head chef Philip Martin worked at the Savoy Hotel in London. Vegeterians are very well catered for with a choice that changes daily on both menu's.

... hours in the Museum of Liverpool (free entry) which was very interesting and worthy of a longer visit. The fog cleared a little bit as we headed to Lime Street station to start the trip home via Manchester and Sheffield so it did allow us to see the mythical 'Liver Birds' atop the Liver Building overlooking the River Mersey. A return visit to the city will be had at some point as there is plenty more to see and do and maybe have a side trip to Southport ...
... was surprisingly light and we made good time to our first stop to stretch and walk around near Lockerbie. Back on the motorway we drove past Glasgow before crossing the Scottish border at Gretna. We didn’t stop at Gretna to take the “border” photos as we had been there in 2007. The amount of traffic increased as we made our way south and we made a second stop to stretch and walk around near Preston before driving into Liverpool.
... heading in to take in the pregame atmosphere and soak up all I could of game day. The pregame rendition of You'll Never Walk Alone was even better than I had imagined and left me truly speechless. The game itself was a bit like Liverpool's season so far - promised much but at the last touch failed to deliver. It looked like Liverpool had snagged a winner in the 77th minute before ...
... hours scrolling through the family archives of photos and other pieces of paper that have been passed down to Rosalind. As with Dad (and by certainty Simon, Gus & me) there are lots of photos we have no idea who might be photographed. Had a dinner all together at The Red Lion in Dodleston which was all very pleasant and a sad farewell as we head off to London tomorrow ...
Terry wanted to visit to the Imperial War Museum at Manchester, so we drove up, it only took about an hour on the freeway. It was exciting to see the Manchester United Football Ground, ITV where they film Coronation Street, the big BBC studios and the sign to the Old Trafford cricket ground. We had coffee and an Eccles cake before we went into the museum, which was not as good as I'd hoped, being more themed ...
