As a regular business traveller I appreciate a good hotel when I need one. This Hotel has never diss appointed me in the half a dozen times I've stayed here. Polite, efficient and friendly helpful staff, immaculate warm and modern rooms with a fresh and tasty buffet breakfast. Well done and I look forward to staying regularly.

stayed here between the 25th and 28th of August. The hotel room was spotless, comfortable and airy. Breakfast was basic, with a choice of cereals, free tea and coffee, fruit salad, yoghurt and a cooked option of scrambled eggs, beans and sausages. All were very tasty. With the wonderful historic city of Chester and all it has to offer just... More

As part of a hen party package we were booked into the hotel and I didn't think anything of it as these hotels are often much of a muchness. However from the minute we arrived and checked in the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The receptionist was only too happy to arrange our rooms so that we were in... More

It's hard to find fault with either the hotel or staff. The hotel is located within 5 mins walk of Chester's centre, has free parking and breakfast is included in the price. The staff are extremely helpful and always did more than we expected. They helped arrange food when we arrived fairly late on the first night and allowed us... More

My fiancee and I stayed here on Tuesday night after booking the room direct through Holiday Inn's own website. Positives: we arrived at 11am and were able to check in early; the Hotel is located only 5 minutes walk from the centre of town and only 11 minutes drive to Chester Zoo so ideally located for tourists; the room was...

Yes there is free parking, breakfast is included and the price is good. But that’s is. This hotel barely meets Premier Inn standards, and is certainly... More

The location is perfect, a very short walk to the town centre and all sights and amenities so if you are looking for a cheap-ish, easy place to stay then it is perfectly serviceable. That said, the is no air-con in the rooms so in the middle of a very hot August we were roasting. The lift was very small... More
