Thanks to city chic rooms and a recent £20 million refurbishment, Hallmark Hotel The Queen, Chester and its staff have a number of awards to their name. Our wacky, ultra-imaginative interiors really set the tone for your stay!
Walk through the colonnaded entrance of our magnificent brick and stucco Italianate hotel and you’re following a trail blazed by some extraordinary guests. Since opening in 1860 to serve first-class rail passengers, we’ve entertained the likes of Charles Dickens, Cecil Rhodes and Lillie Langtry. We’re a hotel of many firsts. We’re the original railway hotel, the first of our kind built to service the many rail travellers to the city. With no other blueprints upon which to base the hotels’ design, our architecture was unique, many say the first skyscraper of its time and students from across the world still visit just to marvel at our structure and design.
