... to Chester are what they call the "Rows". These are several hundred year old first floor covered continuous walkways which form shopping galleries and originated in the 13th century. From the street level this allows for two tiers of shops, with the Rows being accessed by steps at various intervals. The four main streets of Chester are lined with Rows, most of them have been renovated during the 19th century to a predominant style of black and white Tudor building with ...

Yes, we did a Beatles bus tour in a replica of The Magical Mystery Tour bus. An awesome experience is the best way to describe it.

Pretending that I haven't made my mind up to put my name down to be part of the Tour D'Afrique 2015..... Idea is to do as much cycling as possible over the next week or so and see what I think about this mad idea. Also have e-mailed the organisers to ask if it is silly for me to consider this if I am a slow cyclist. Awaiting a reply but they are moving offices at the moment in Toronto, and it is also a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Manchester Airport Marriott Hotel
Not too bad after all!
My kids and I stayed here on a saturday night while visiting family in the area. After the long drive from London we were tired and not really looking forward to this hotel .We always find it hard to find somewhere decent in the area..we are.. I am afraid to say ..hotel snobs, especially the kids!
However I booked an exec room .It was newly refurbished and the 2 double beds were lovely with crisp white duvets etc.. the sad old bedspreads hotels have used in the past..unhygienic to say the least..seem happily to be a thing of the past. We had room service which was very friendly and efficient ..food not great but not too bad.
Overall very comfortable. Breakfast was ok, although the buffet was rather meagre.
I think this hotel is great as..what it is..an airport hotel. Fine for a one night stay, but any longer and the novelty might wear off.
We will definately stay again when we come up to Hale.
Too far away!
Stayed here for a week for business. Big rambling hotel, as the others have said, but comfy marriott beds and a nice pool/gym area. Not walking distance to the airport, so no real reason to stay here unless you are a point junkie like me. Nothing special overall.
We stayed here before flying out from Manchester Airport. Yes the hotel is ten minutes drive from the airport, however they do offer a very efficient airport service. We had what they call an executive room. which had recently been completely refurbished. We wanted a good nights sleep before leaving on holiday and that is what we got. The hotel was quiet and the bed was of a high standard. The room was very clean and the breakfast next morning was comprehensive and no better or worse than any other Manchester airport hotel.
Yes the hotel is a little rambling and I was put off by this at the start but the good nights sleep made up for this.
In comparison to the Radisson, this is a much better option food, sleep and comfort wise - if you can deal with not being on the airport site and a rather rambling hotel.
Stylish and comfortable
Stayed here for 1 night to catch an early flight the following morning, and had a rate which included 15 days parking and return shuttle transfers to/from Manchester Airport.
Check in service was excellent and our early morning shuttle transfer was arranged - they're on a 30 minute schedule. The lobby was bright and welcoming and leads through to a very nice coffee bar and full bar with a restaurant off that. I liked the stylish and contemporary design of these public rooms, and indeed my guest room.
My room was in excellent condition, everything felt new. Top quality bedding and furnishings and the bathroom was perfect too.
My only criticism would be the long corridors felt a little bit like a warren, but a small price to pay for the room quality.
On our return we simply rang the hotel using the courtesy phone in the Arrivals Hall and the shuttle bus driver was outside waiting for us, we were then wisked back to the hotel to collect our car.
An excellent stay and I will certainly stay here again.
stayed at this hotel many times dut to business and have the following observations.
1. pool and gym fantastic
2. the hotel is a labrynth of rooms going off in all directions - good luck with finding yours.
3. rooms overlooking the courtyard areas are terribly dark and dismal - you have to have your light on all day meaning people can see in your room - nice !!!!
4. food very overpriced.
5. terrestrial tv channels along with sky sports and sky news.
6. staff ok - nothing great
7. airport shuttle ok for taking you to the airport but picking up can mean a considerable wait ( 20 - 25 minutes ) not what you expect from a airport hotel.
Overall unless you pick up a good deal with parking included then you can do much better for a airport hotel
Had previously stayed here and been given a suite which was great.
However, upon my return, had a standard courtyard room. Nice if a little small. BUT THERE IS NO SOUNDPROOFING. I could hear my neighbours talking, coughing, going to the toilet etc. Doors banged all night, and then someone woke me up at 5am, so not a great night's sleep.
Gym and pool are great though.
Restaurant good too, if a little expensive. Lots of choice for breakfast.
Players restaurant even better, but can't charge bills to room.
So a mixed bag. If you get a nice quiet room, should be a good stay. Otherwise, make sure you have earplugs.
Gloomy room - felt like a dark cave!
Stayed at the Marriott Hotel (the old Four Seasons Hotel) on business for one night (thankfully!) Hotel is going through some refurbishment - covered in scaffolding and building equipment. Very difficult just finding the entrance from the carpark - could do with some signs showing the way to reception. When I found reception it was slow. Only one member of staff on duty (or serving) which caused quite a queue.
Was given a room overlooking the courtyard (very nice you might think!!) Room was on the ground floor and whilst it was quite a large room (which unusually had two doors) it was so, so dark! You had to have the lights on all the time - and all the lamps had those economy lightbulbs which don't give off a nice shade of light. If you had the lights on, you had to have the curtains closed or else everybody walking by could see straight into your room. GLOOMY !!
The bathroom was a good size, but the shower head was sideways onto the bath, so you had to stand on the plughole to get under the shower.
It was quite noisy with doors banging throughout the night.
Ordered breakfast in room (not particularly cheap when compared to other hotels in the area). In the morning, I waited and waited. When I chased up they hadn't got the order sheet... why not I asked... because the night staff had forgotten to collect it !
Not overly impressed, not as good as other Marriott hotels. Need to lighten up the rooms, change the lightbulbs, oh yes, and change the night staff if they can't be bothered to collect the breakfast cards!
There are better hotels, at the same price nearby!
You Can Do Better!
This is not a great Marriot. It has a very rambling layout which leaves most rooms very far away from the lobby. Its location is not particularly convenient to the airport and it is totally isolated. The service was at best so-so with the restaurant very slow. The room was okay but not user friendly. They charge for everything including 1.5 pounds for an 800 telephone call. There is no Internet connection available in the room. You will do much better with the Radisson or Hilton which have much better locations to the airport.
Booked in here after leaving the Princess Hotel quickly (see my separate review) and couldn't have ben happier with the place.
Reception was quick and professional. The room was great - huge comfortable bed, nice decor, immaculately presented and all of the facilities and extras you'd expect - will definitely recommend it.
Gym facilities leave a lot to be desired. Hotel rooms are very poor in standard. Staff are friendly and courteous.
