                Amazing accomodation. The 73 steps to the penthouse keep you fit!

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Very clean and spacious and great amenities and location.

                Too hot and unable to adjust the thermostat correctly

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Excellent, especially the hospitality of Stuart, beyond our expectations! Loved the GUEST night met some really interesting neighbours.

                Could benefit from more coffee/tea/ designer lovely but Kenco! coffee would have been the hit in the morning.

              • Couple
                8.8

                All staff very helpfull. Room was fantastic. Also liked the free drinks and canapes on saturday night.

                The only real minor thing that may be a problem for older people or people with other health problems is we had the penthouse which was 4 flights of stairs.

              • Group of friends
                9.6

                The room was very luxurious, and the service was amazing. Will definitely, definitely stay there again - I'll recommend it to all my friends.

              • Couple

                Amazing staff, incredible rooms and décor, fantastic experience, would recommend to anyone!

                10.0

                This place is so amazing, you have got to stay there !!

              • Couple
                9.2

                An excellent residence with a lot of gadgets inside the house. Great and polite staff. Very modern and stylish apartments.

                No breakfast service you have to order it every night for the following morning and the quantity is poor. Also only cold breakfast is served. The fireplace wasn't working as well as the heating for the towels in the bathroom. (we complaint about that the first day but they didn't fix it. Maybe because was at easter season.)

              • Family with children
                10.0

                The room was outstanding with all amenties you could wish for and the staff were also excellent and helpful.

                Parking outside the hotel could be a problem as vast majority of street parking is for residents of the houses next to the Chester Residence.

              • Family with children
                10.0

                the staff was excellent and helpful. Our accomadations were amazing and worth every penny.

                A little out off the main city centre but the accomadations made up for it. Especially when we stayed in another hotel on Saturday night were the street noise did not quiet down until 4am!

              • Single
                8.2

                Amazing apartments - I mean really really lovely - we all wished our own houses were this nice

                Staff - they were really bad compared to the apartment - they were ok but let the place down- they needed more of them - had to wait 15 minutes when I first arrived as there was no one on the desk, brekkie sucked as well

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                We loved the luxury of having more space in contrast to staying in a hotel room.The service from the friendly young staff was excellent. I also enjoyed having food served in the apartment and being able to sit at a dining table to enjoy!

                Only one small compalint......the cleanliness of the bathroom and kitchen floors could be better as could the bathroom basin.

              • Family with children
                6.2

                The bill at the end wasn´t correct. The meals , roomservice, was terrible.

              • Couple
                9.6

                The Chester Residence is first class. Everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Excellent location with no expense spared on the decor and layout of the apartment. Fantastic place to relax and unwind. Keep up the good work..!
