"My boyfriend surprised me with a night’s stay at the Abode for my birthday. The day was truly amazing. The spa treatments were perfect and the food was incredible. Staff were helpful and polite, especially Kerry and Sarah from reception who really went the extra mile to make our stay even better."


"...dropping you a line to thank you for the superb service you provided when I went to Chester races a couple of weeks ago. Jo and Sian really looked after me and I felt a million dollars!!" Maureen


"We stayed at the Abode on a Saturday night for my partners birthday. We live in the area so were purely going for a night out at a hotel and a good meal. I can honestly say this is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. We booked a suite on the 6th floor and they are certainly worth the price. The room was spacious, very nicely appointed and the view was amazing. I booked my partner into the spa where he had a lovely massage and then we had dinner at the Michael Caines Restaurant."
