Historical Traveler Reviews The Delafield Hotel

Great place


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 Perfect!


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..

Little treasure


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.

... I am used. Their classes last an entire school year so I am starting each course in the middle. Because of this, I only have one assessment at the end of the year in each class. It is basically a 2,000 word essay about something in that course. This is totally different than Agnes. I'm used to constant papers, homework, and tests. Although the outside work is on the light side, my entire ...

... in 1837. There are only 2. The oldest is Whitechurch and is outside the town. The second is St Hillary's built as a garrison church to Denbigh Castle by 1335 and the most commonly used in 1837. It makes sense they would have been married here. In 1871 St. Mary's was built to replace it and St. Hillary's was allowed to become derelict. All that remains in the ruins of the bell tower. We visit the ...

... off the leash, she is unmanageable ;-) Fortunately, when she pulls at her leash to go attack a German Sheperd (for instance), I can keep her easily just with one hand.

During the walk, we have 2 stops, in large grass fields, where I let them run after the ball. Lots of stress, since, while they run, I need to see if someone comes with a dog, and then, hope to get Belle before she sees it! Fortunately she is "close to the ground" so I am ...

Exploring Chester and Missioning Back to London

... waiting at Waterloo station I went for a wander around. Wow. Every now and then we get moments where we think "Hells yea, all that hard work was worth it". Standing on the bridge over the Thames seeing Big Ben and the London Eye at night was a prime example of one of those.

Finally Liz (bless her) made it back after taking the very last bus from Fareham and we got to bed by 1am. What a mission! We have to be up tomorrow at 5:30am to start our bus trip. Can't Wait!

A comedy of errors

... that another error was revealed, and also the scene of the final error.

First up, I was yet again forced to admit that I had made a major error the week before when I had mistaken one of the regular old fellas for someone much younger, and had been talking to him convinced that he was who I thought he was. My confusion was borne out of a recognition error (see beer goggles). You see, there are these two blokes who go to the Lord Clifden every Friday ...
