A historic Chester hotel with superbly decorated rooms and refurbished AA Rosette-awarded British restaurant - includes breakfast and optional dinner
Age before beauty isn’t a choice you have to make when visiting historic Chester. Founded by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago, the city’s ancient walls wrap enchantingly around medieval buildings and former Benedictine monasteries. As historic as its surroundings, the sumptuous Hallmark Hotel The Queen makes its home behind a Victorian facade, too.
Make your bed here for the night and you’ll be following in the footsteps of Charles Dickens, Lillie Langtry and Cecil Rhodes. The decor may have changed a bit since their day, though, thanks to some Alice in Wonderland-inspired pieces offering a lovely touch. A modern British restaurant, plus a lounge that has been serving afternoon tea for more than 150 years, will also keep you well-fed before a good night's sleep.
