The rooms are small but not unreasonable for the price. The location is great and an easy walk into Chester. The breakfast was disappointing and i only ate the toast in the end and the trays make it feel like an old peoples home. The hotel was ridiculously hot as were the rooms! The staff were unfriendly and dismissive

Good room but no aircon and the little desk fan didnt really do it for us. Very hot summer but the design of the hotel means it is hotter when you walk inside than when you were out. Good breakfast and staff are ok. Comfortable bed, and a 5 minute walk to the lovely old walled city of Chester.

First time using this brand and would rate it above Travelodge and below Premier Inn. However we found the location for our 5 night stay ideal. The room(s) was clean and well decorated with all the facilities you require, including a fan which was very welcome during the hot weather during our stay. The beds were very comfortable. We started... More

We have stayed in this hotel before and as the location is lovely, right beside the racecourse and with free parking we will continue to use it as long as the price is right. We arrived at 1.50pm and our room wasn't ready so we were offered a free coffee which we had and I used the free internet too.... More

I know it's a rubbish title for a review, but it is and it is A Sunday night cost us £52 with continental breakfast (which we didn't make it down for). We had a view of the racecourse and the room was a touch better than Travelodge standard. They also have a bar for late night revelling, but everything is... More

Stayed for one night and was surprised how good hotel was. We had a good size room overlooking the racecourse. There was a fan in the room which helped keep it cool as it was a lovely hot weekend. The bed was a little soft but there was a choice of pillows. The bathroom had a good shower and large... More

Newly referbished hotel in a good location for shopping and right next to the racecourse. A large number of racegoers, hen and wedding parties so look elsewhere if you want a peaceful hotel but otherwise a perfect city centre location at a reasonable price.
