For the May bank holiday weekend we made a 2 night reservation at the Village Hotel Club St Davids Park near Chester. The hotel is actually in North Wales but has excellent road links if you wanted to explore the North Wales Coast, Chester or Liverpool.
When we arrived at the hotel we were met and greeted by Ashley on reception who gave us an introduction to the hotel, what times the children’s swimming times were in the pool before explaining where our room was located.
The Village Club St David’s Park is such as warm family orientated hotel that is perfect for families.
Our room was fantastic and spotlessly clean , we reserved a family plus room and I would highly recommend that you pay the extra for this type of room over a standard family room.
Within our room the girls had a nice welcome gift which was a nice touch.
We have stayed in many hotels across the UK and our room had to be the biggest and was very spacious.
The room had 2 queen size beds and a double sofa bed and the room had a modern colour scheme.
Leading to the bathroom were 2 large wardrobes which was in an area just before the bathroom
The bathroom was modern and clean with 2 vanity basins and a separate bath and shower.
If I was being picky for the upper deck rooms I think they should also offer upgraded toiletries for families and not just for the adult upper deck rooms.
The TV had full SKY TV included so it was perfect for the children, who took over the controls and were watching the Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, Sky Disney Movies etc.
Having this option was a nice touch for families over the standard list of channels you normally get at many hotels.
If you needed to work there was ample work space at the desk, with plenty of power points and a comfy ergonomic chair.
Within our room were tea and coffee making facilities, along with complimentary water.
Our room was on the top floor and had a nice view of the central courtyard.
The girl’s were excited to go swimming as soon as we arrived at the hotel which they enjoyed
There was lots of public meeting space in the hotel and a lovely bar area to relax at night. However it did become very busy which could have been because it was a bank holiday weekend.
We had a wonderful family meal at the hotel restaurant and although it was busy as it was bank holiday weekend the restaurant was chilled and calm and the level of service and the quality of the meals was excellent.
It was my mum’s birthday during our stay and when we arrived at the restaurant the hotel decorated the table with celebratory balloons and at the end of the meal brought out a birthday desert and candle. It’s these little touches that really makes a difference.
Breakfast was of a good quality with a good standard of service. You had a range of hot options which were replenished quickly so the items were always fresh and not dried up as is the case in many of the buffet style breakfasts.
There was also a good range of cereals and yoghurts on offer. However I do like these to be in individual boxes rather than the setup that the Village Club offered,
The only negatives was there was no air conditioning in the room, which we found strange in a modern hotel.
We didn’t need it during our stay but in the warmer summer months it could be uncomfortable without this feature, although we did find a fan in one of the wardrobes.
We would be perfectly happy to come back to this hotel in the future, it’s a great base to explore Chester and North Wales and had terrific levels of customer service coupled with a great room.
