We stayed at holiday inn ellesmere port, whilst visiting Cheshire Oaks outlets. The hotel itself was a little confusing to find, but once you're there it's worth it. The location is great, with the hotel being situated on the 'basin' of the canal, so a nice peaceful view, with a small amount of parking out the front (although i think there was an overflow parking area, a short stroll from hotel doors).

On arriving, check in was a breeze, quick and simple with the receptionist being pleasant, we were on the third floor and overlooking the carpark at the front of the hotel. The room itself was spacious enough, with a large LCD TV, desk, chair aswell as a tub chair, the room was clean and modern, bathroom was also very clean with complimentary shower gel/handwash.

Overnight the hotel was nice and quiet, and we ended up having a good nights sleep, after the long day shopping! We got a great rate including breakfast and when we got down there the following morning we were greeted by friendly staff who were very happy to help. The breakfast itself was great, it had an amazing choice of hot food, and all the usual breakfast buffet suspects!

There are leisure facilities at the hotel, however we didnt use them so cant comment on those.

Overall we had a great overnight stay at this hotel, great staff, great breakfast and great room - a real gem for Holiday Inn. The location is good for exploring the local area, great access to cheshire oaks, Chester, Chester Zoo, Waterways museum to name but a few close by.

quick tip if going into Chester... use the park and ride, so easy, 10 mins into the centre, stress free, £1.70 per person.

We attended a wedding here so booked a room overnight. The room was as you'd expect from Holiday Inn - comfortable size, very clean, well equipped (although no safe or trouser press) and nice bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and well sound proofed so we had an excellent night's sleep and breakfast the following morning was super. It's a modern, purpose built hotel so the bar and restaurant are lacking a bit of character but they are comfortable and service is good. It's an excellent hotel for sizeable events such as the wedding we attended and I have previously used it for conferences as the staff are well trained and helpful. Ellesmere Port itself is not very exciting but the hotel is convenient for Cheshire Oaks, Chester Zoo and of course Ellesmere Port Boat Museum which is a lot more interesting than it sounds. If you fancy a change from the hotel's own restaurant, Jabula is a very good African restaurant just a short walk from the front door.

Room Tip: Wherever your room is, you will have interesting views of the canals and waterside buidlings.

We recently spent a very enjoyable long weekend at the Holiday Inn Ellemere Port - an ideal location for Chester, Cheshire Oaks and the zoo. A great deal from the holiday inn is that kids stay and eat for free - a good saving for a family break. The hotel is a little hard to find initially but once found the return trips are easy. The rooms were cosy - when the sofa bed was out there everything was very close. A clean bathroom and everything you would expect from a holiday inn. We had dinner one night and the food was good - the breakfast was ok. The setting is nice overlooking canals and the pool is in an old boathouse. An enjoyable break and the kids have a ball and cannot wait to visit again.

We have stayed here a few times, and have enjoyed all our visits.
We always stay here when visiting the City of Chester, Chester Zoo and Cheshire Oaks retail park.
Its in a great location on the old canal systems, with a restaurant looking onto the large locks, a great place to feed the ducks with the bread they give you in the restaurant, The kids also love it because the hotel has a leisure complex with pool next door, free for guest to use.
One of the better budget hotels.

only booked a few days before we went - got fab rooms overlooking the canals and all next to each other. Why can't other hotels accommodate this??
Booked on a dinner bed and breakfast rate and the food was exceptional for a chain! The final comment though goes to the staff. They all seemed local and nothing was ever too much trouble. Any probllems or requests were reeted with a smile and even the offer of a cooffee on one occasion when we had to wait for a more senior manager to sort out an issue with the bill.
and only 3 miles from cheshire oaks for a couple of hours retail therapy!

Room Tip: ask for one overlooking the canals
