    Historical Traveler Reviews Green Bough Hotel Chester

    Great place

    from

    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

    from

    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 Perfect!

    from

    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.

    Wonderful!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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..

    Little treasure

    from

    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 ...

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    ... when William Lever, co-founder of Lever Brothers, wanted to build good and pleasant housing for his workers in the soap factory here. He was ahead of his time and enlightened in that he considered that workers would work better if comfortably housed with surrounding gardens and open spaces. This was in the early 1900s. The houses today are not allowed to be changed, but they have been maintained and are ...

    Despite travelling without commitments, occasionally we find that we have committed ourselves to be somewhere at a particular time. This happened at the beginning of August, when we heard that a good friend was turning 70 and was planning a big party. So, of course, we had to be there! That meant that when ...

The church is open and we are able to look at church records from the time but are unable to find anything. We don't have exact dates and are told that sometimes marriages and births are recorded much later when the family finally gets around to it. I get some web sites where ...

    Our next stop was Haughmond Abbey, a ruined Augustinian abbey near Shrewsbury, another casualty of the dissolution of the ...
