“Great Hotel ...don't be put off by the exterior”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Nice clean rooms, faultless service from friendly helpful staff and a great breakfast. From the outside the look is decidedly from the 70's - 80's, but inside all is well. It is a clean and well presented hotel inside and the staff couldn't do enough to help. Breakfast is a joy and the staff there were clearly proud of the offering and their hotel - it showed ! Rooms are clean and theres a nice large flat screen TV with Freeview HD - if you need it. Beds are great and the bed linen too.
Can't fault this hotel and we will be back. Parking is free.

I couldn't fault any of the staff or service given. The poor location was served by a frequent and late running (last @ 2310) bus route raising the status given. Unless you want to explore the beautiful business park next door there are no other facilities within walking distance. The rooms are comfortable and are supplied with a LG HD TV which is a bonus and although fridges aren’t provided ice buckets are available from the bar. The food served in both the restaurant and the bar were excellent with the bar prices also being very reasonable although be aware of the dreaded 10% service charge automatically added. The only downside to the week was the cost of the internet @ £16 per 24 hours. Would I return? Yes, if the company I work for are willing to pay for the internet, unlike the last trip, but if not then only for a couple of nights.

Had a great 3 night break over the early May Bank Holiday in Holiday Inn Chester South - lovely comfortable beds, everything clean and convenient, excellent breakfast and meals in the restaurant for the 3 evenings were faultless - staff were extremely friendly and helpful - nothing too much trouble - would DEFINITELY stay here again - it is perfect for visiting Chester and had an open top bus ride around Chester which was very interesting, also visited the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct which was fun but there is much more to do and see in the area so we will be back!! Oh and nearly forgot to mention the pool which was great too. Thank you to all staff at Holiday Inn Chester!!!!!

Room Tip: We had a room upstairs.

Hi's a Holiday Inn with a health club, so oyu know exactly what you are getting. This was exactly what we expected...with one difference.

For £20 they do 2 course and 2 drinks and, being tired, we decided to give it a go.

The food was simply superb - a real cut above typical hotel food and great value compared with most hotel food.

On first appearance the hotel looks dated but don't be put off. I stay in a lot of hotels thought out the year on business and despite the 'old' appearance I have to say this is one of the best. All the staff are very friendly, from reception, bar and cleaners; ICH Group you should take note from here. The food is great and good value especially if you buy the £20 voucher from reception which includes 2 courses and 2 drinks. Only down side is the cost of Internet which is the whilst the same as other hotels should be free no days - I understand that it will be free in all ICH for platinum members of priority club from July - about time!

The outside look is dated, reception nice and check in efficient. Room ok but the detail is not there. We were in the executive room so the larger TV etc, the sink was loose, and the paint on the bathroom door frame was worn away. There was a towel with a dirty mark on it, I had enough towels in the room for it not to be an issue.
Bar area very nice along with restaurant at breakfast, staff really nice and friendly.
Went to use the swimming pool after work and it was closed between 18.15 until 17.00 due to aqua aerobics, very inconvenient and disapointment
