Free parking at hotel on Chester Racecourse grounds. Friendly staff. Room clean. Beds comfy. Over warm in bedroom but portable fan in room. Self service breakfast buffet, basic but adequate. Only a 5 minute walk (up hill) into stunning Chester. Would stay here again for convenience and price.

Me and my fiance stayed here a few months ago and thought this place as a whole is one of the best hotels we have both been to ever.
