This Hotel is a good budget hotel in an excellent location,overlooking the racecourse and within easy walking distance of the city centre. Our room was of reasonable size and clean and comfortable. We had tea and coffee making facilities and reasonably quick Wi-Fi. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the buffet breakfast was plentiful and of good quality. We... More

This Holiday Inn is in a great location with free parking and short walking distance to Chester town. We did have to take a little while to convince the rather miserable car park attendant that we were staying at the hotel and not trying to park for free and visit the racecourse, that did annoy me a little as he...

I have stayed at many Hotel chains over the years but this is my 1st stay at Holiday Inn Express for 10 years. If this is a 'standard' for the chain I will certainly return. Location great, on the Racecourse and 5 minutes from the city centre and the River Dee. Room faultless, spotlessly clean and the most comfortable bed... More

Stayed Easter Sunday after visiting the food festival at the racecourse . Ideally placed for Chesters pubs and restaurants . Free parking , comfy beds , good shower , decent free wifi , all for £65 including a half decent buffet breakfast . What more could you ask for from a no frills hotel was just the job for us... More

Stayed here for a night on March 21, 2014. It was a welcome surprise to find out that the hotel was perfect. The room was spacious and the bed more than comfortable. We had a good night sleep and breakfast served next day morning was excellent. On the plus side the hotel was a short walk from the city centre... More

One of the better sited Holiday Inns I have stayed in but this needs to be offset by the very tired appearance of the bedrooms and slightly gruff attitude of the staff. This was my second stay in this hotel and i still could not get the heater in the bedroom to give me heat! I think it was actually... More

Nice hotel, very pleasant staff and good customer service but my room (201) was right next to a busy railway line. I prefer to have a window open a little but that proved impossible. Great location, and the room was overlooking the Race Course, but either take ear plugs or ask for a room at the opposite side of the... More

No complaints - did what it said on the tin. No food available in the evening but they have a good selection of take-away menus to help late night pangs of hunger. Staff were courteous and efficient Breakfast was hearty and plentiful £74 - you can't argue with that
