Explore the historic city of Chester from this relaxing base amid two acres of beautifully landscaped gardens – includes breakfast, bottle of wine and optional dinner allowance

Enjoy easy access to the historic city of Chester with a stay at Mercure Chester Abbots Well Hotel. In a peaceful, rural setting amid two acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, here you’re just a short hop from the city centre with its half-timbered buildings, chic shops, great restaurants and famous Roman amphitheatre. Closer to home, the hotel grounds lead to the pretty canalside walkways of Christleton, and Chester’s famous zoo is also close by.

The hotel itself is an understated contemporary build – a low-rise, creamy white affair that gives way to sleek modern interiors. There’s a snug and cosy bar, with comfy armchairs and an informal vibe, plus the bright, gourmet Brasserie restaurant with lovely countryside views. One of the hotel’s main draws is its aptly named Feel Good Health Club – a destination in itself – with large free-form heated swimming pool and spa facilities. Rooms feature calming creamy hues and most overlook the hotel courtyard, ensuring a perfectly restful night's sleep.
