Please note: Due to Government Guidelines some hotel services may be limited during your visit. Built opposite Chester station to serve first-class rail passengers, The Queen Hotel Chester, BW Premier Collection has an illustrious past. This magnificent brick and stucco Italianate building was said to be the first skyscraper of its time, and you'll be following in the footsteps of some rather famous guests with a stay here. Since opening in 1860, it's hosted none other than Charles Dickens, Cecil Rhodes and Lillie Langtry, to name but a few. The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the center of Chester. Here you can browse the boutiques of The Rows, a unique two-tiered shopping gallery, tour the magnificent medieval cathedral or see the ruins of the largest Roman Amphitheatre in Britain. Families can have a fun day out at Chester Zoo, 4 miles from the hotel, while racegoers can try their luck at Chester Racecourse, the oldest in the world. Whether you're here for the Roman history, excellent shopping or business facilities, we're sure to have a room that fits your needs. Each floor is dedicated to a country, with every suite named after a king of that nation. All our 221 bedrooms have superfast fiber optic Wi-Fi, satellite TV and 24-hour room service. Some of our most luxurious rooms have Tencel mattress toppers, roll-top baths, Nespresso coffee machines and four-poster beds fit for royalty. When you're not relaxing in your room, enjoy a drink in one of our exquisite Victorian lounges or take arty photos on our sweeping four-story staircase.
