The Chester Hotel


The Chester Hotel


The Chester Hotel is an elegant boutique hotel set in the heart of the fashionable West End of the Granite City.


Set within a series of listed granite villas – a hallmark of the city – The Chester Hotel is a luxurious venue and is a firm favourite with both locals and visitors. The contemporary Signature restaurant, which has two AA Rosettes, is the star of the culinary show. Elegant, not posh, the menu changes with the season and features local and Scottish produce. Part traditional cocktail bar and part modern palm court, the IX Bar is lively and vibrant, serving a fantastic and extensive cocktail menu, fine wines and beers as well as bar food. An outside seating terrace is perfect for sunny days. There is also an onsite gym.


There are 71 bedrooms and suites. Classic rooms are petite but come with a punch and all have a double or king bed. Grand rooms are extremely spacious and airy, with some interconnecting. Club rooms are on the top floor of the original 19th century buildings, offering stunning views to the south of the city. The Rothesay Suite takes you back in time, with period features, fireplace and separate living area. The Chester Suite offers pure luxury, with a seperate living area, free standing bath, rainfall shower and television rising from the foot of the bed. Accessible rooms are also available.

When To Go

Being a relatively small country it is surprising how much the climate can change from one region to another and add to that how unpredictable it can be, you will often experience all four seasons in one day!

Summer (June-August) – These are normally the warmest months in Scotland and due to the high latitude the summer days are long with often extended twilight. The northern islands normally enjoy about four hours more daylight at midsummer than London. Average maximum temperatures range from 15 – 17 degrees Celsius.

Autumn (September-November) – Travelling to Scotland during the autumn months is a colourful experience as the trees change to eye-catching and vibrant autumnal colours. A great time for photography and woodland walks. Average maximum temperatures range from 8 – 14 degrees Celsius

Winter (December-February) – Temperatures drop considerably to an average maximum temperatures of 5 degrees Celsius and considerably lower in the highlands. Snow falls for much of this period making it the perfect time for a winter sports break. It also the best time to experience Scotland’s designated dark sky areas and take part in astronomy.

Spring (March-May) – One of our favourite time’s to visit. Flowers are in full bloom and the wildlife is starting to stir following the cold winter months. Average maximum temperatures range from 7 – 13 degrees Celsius and you may experience a shower or two but hotel rates are generally cheaper.
