Terms & conditions

Guaranteed Reservations and Deposits

All reservations must be guaranteed to a major credit card or debit card (American Express, Visa, MasterCard or Switch/Maestro) at the time of reservation.

Please be aware that due to unforeseen circumstances we may need to move you to a different room however we will never downgrade your booking.

If your reservation cannot be honoured, we will arrange your accommodation in another serviced apartment/hotel at our expense, and provide transportation to and from The Chester Hotel as reasonable.

Please note, the hotel does not accept stag/hen parties or bookings of a similar nature. Failure to disclose this information will result in a direct cancellation of your booking.

Cancellation Policy

Please note, if a booking is cancelled after 2pm the day before check in, then The Chester Hotel will charge 100% cancellation fee of the total amount due. For additional details of cancellation policies contact us directly on 01224 327777.

Where a booking is cancelled and third party activities/services have been purchased (on behalf of the client), the cancellation policy of the third party company will apply. Any relevant charges or leniency is at the discretion of the third party company.

Deposit requirements

The deposit will be subtracted from the total amount due at your time of departure.

The deposit is entirely non-refundable should you cancel your guaranteed reservation, regardless of whether this is done by the Required Date as discussed above. However, for the avoidance of doubt, should you forfeit your deposit by cancelling your guaranteed reservation, you will not be charged an additional cancellation fee in accordance with the above cancellation policy.
