We would highly recommend this hotel
My husband and I booked an evening reception for our wedding at the Mercure in Chester on August 10th 2019. Having been married in Italy, we wanted to hold a party to celebrate with extended friends and family and felt that the Mercure was the right size and appropriate location for us. We began the proceedings by meeting with Alison in the Sales Department back in November 2018, who gave me a tour of the venue including the events room which opened out onto stunning gardens, as well as the rooms and fitness centre. We were also given some valuable advice on how to go about having the room decorated, and guest rooms for the night were reserved for ease of booking - a massive help to us.Sent on 21/08/2019
As we approached the date of the party, the preparation for the reception was excellent; Alison met us around a month before the event where we discussed our booking for DJ, band, photo booth and decorators, and Alison contacted all vendors prior to the event to ensure things ran smoothly for us. We were given a range of choices for our buffet - everyone commented on the delicious food - and there was plenty of it for our guests. The whole event was an absolute joy for us; at no point did we feel stressed or like we had to micro-manage anyone because it had all been taken care of, leaving us to enjoy our party. Additionally, the rooms themselves were spacious and all our friends commented on what a lovely hotel it was to stay in. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering booking for an event or an overnight stay.

5 star performance from booking till last orders!
We booked our wedding 18 months in advance, our wedding planner Alison was so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and she managed to take almost all the stress away from us. On the day of our wedding the General Manager Louis was so helpful throughout the whole day, making it one very special day for the two off us. We cannot thank the staff enough for their warmth and kindness. One off the main reason we looked at Abbots Well for our wedding, is because, we attended a friends there a few years earlier we was impressed than, and even more so now.Sent on 19/08/2019

Brides parents thank you email
Hi Rachel and Alison,Sent on 28/12/2018
Just want to say a massive thank you to you both for Sarah and Rob's wedding last Saturday.
Alison, we appreciated your planning, patience, help and advice before the wedding day. You were always prompt in replying and gave us answers to the questions we asked, even if they were stupid and we were going over board.
Rachel, it was lovely to meet you on the day before the wedding. We were very happy with the way you managed the day for us. We had many comments from guests how well it had gone and the slick service in the dining room. We appreciated that anything we asked was done no trouble. The day was perfect.
We would not hesitate to recommend Abbots Well to any friends in the future.
Val and Geoff
