If you are looking for a perfect weekend "get away from it all" experience this is the place to go. In the recent past I have stayed in 4* Hotels and the Green Bough is, without a doubt, the best. Nothing is too much trouble, you only have to ask and it is done.
The greeting at Reception, whether by the owners or staff, is warm and friendly. You are shown to your room and invited to partake of tea or perhaps some other refreshment and maybe watch a DVD. I was meeting my friends for dinner and as I had time to spare beforehand I was able to relax with refreshments and a DVD.
My room consisted of a sitting room in which there was a settee and TV. In the bedroom itself there was four-poster bed (the most comfortable one I have slept in!) with a welcoming Teddy on it, a spacious wardrobe (containing two bathrobes), full-length mirror, dressing table (with a hairdryer in one of the drawers), flat screen TV with radio and DVD player. Tea and coffee were on the dressing table.
The bathroom was a good size with plenty of hot water and the soap, hand-wash, bath, shower and shampoo are by Elemis. Wonderful and a nice quality touch to the stay. Everything was clean and shining.
The dinner was excellent with the staff being attentive in the right way. We were able to enjoy our meal and have conversations between ourselves. The choices on the menu were mouth-watering and the selection of wines and spirits extensive.
As for breakfast, it was the best English one I have ever had in a Hotel and I made this comment to the Janice. I was pleased to learn that the Green Bough has been given an award for their breakfast - and very well deserved.
I left for home towards lunchtime and I felt that I had been away for a lovely, leisurely weekend instead of just one night. I would highly recommend this for a weekend away or an even a longer holiday. There is so much to visit and see with the historic City of Chester only a 10 minute walk away. What could be better after a day's sightseeing than returning to the Greenbough for an evening of relaxation, wonderful food and excellent service.
This hotel was perfection!
I have recently written a review mentioning a hotel that was well over my usual budget... well this is it!
The 4* Green Bough hotel is situated on Hoole Road, Chester... great access for the centre of Chester by car, and not too far to walk if the weather is nice.
Myself and my girlfriend stayed in one of the four junior suites for one night which including breakfast put me back £99. This price was due to a late deal and is normally priced at £249.99 per night, to be honest, had I of paid full price I most definitely wouldn't of raving about it... then again I simply couldn't afford £250!
Reception & Staff:
I can't speak highly enough of the staff, we arrived at the hotel after a trip to Chester Zoo (also reviewed) at approximately 4:30 pm. We went to the front desk and were welcomed by a very welcoming, friendly female receptionist who signed us in and made polite conversation before showing us to our room. After this we didn't see her again but every member of staff couldn't have done any more to be of help with anything. They arranged a DVD and chocolates (complimentary) to be ready in the room for our return 9:00 to be shown to our seats and offered a wide selection of drinks and a breakfast menu. Service was extremely quick and there were no mistakes at all.
Absolutely amazing room! Very spacious with a large 4 poster bed right in the middle, there was a dressing table, full length mirror, full sized wardrobe & flat screen t.v, and still plenty of floor space to move about it comfortably. The en-suite was a very decent size, with a shower/bath at one end with a small dividing wall between that and the toilet and sink.
I couldn't have asked any more of the hotel! There was nothing that I would have changed about the night, it was a last night away for a while for myself and my girlfriend as she has just left for university so really was a perfect way to end the summer! Nothing but a huge thank you should go to everyone at the Green Bough hotel.
