Holiday Inn Express Chester - Racecourse

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Stayed just before and just after christmas and a stopover to break up a long drive. Easy to get to from the M6 with plenty of parking. Fairly typical HI express - modern, clean with excellent staff. Brakfast is always a bit ordinary but to be expected at this chain. Brilliant location for walking into chester and the walls. Circa £40 pre christmas and £60 post.

We stayed here on New Years Eve. The hotel is right on the racecourse and our room on the thrid floor had nice views over the course. The room and the hotel is very clean and modern looking. The staff are very polite and curteous. The breakfast is what you would expect for an express in, minimal choice but all fresh and well set out. Only a five minute walk into the centre if that.

If you choose this hotel for a short break it will suit your needs.

This hotel is in a good location- a five minute walk into the town centre, and the breakfast isn't bad. However the rooms are pretty small and the service at times was a bit ropey; one evening I asked to book a taxi and was told to come back in the morning as they couldn't get through, and when my manager left his plug adapter in his room, the hotel were very unhelpful about it and I couldn't get it back even though I was still there! On the first morning the shower head fell on my head, although they were quick to replace it. All in all a pretty basic, no frills hotel- I wouldn't choose to stay here again, but it wouldn't be the end of the world if I had to.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room and got one on the third floor- it was facing the road but there wasn't...

A group of friends, we had a weekend break here, it is in a great location for walking into Chester main shopping area, the river or walls. Clean, comfortable and we had a good view of the race course. We could have free tea, coffee or hot chocolate in the dining area on tap, the continental breakfast is fine. Joining the Priority Club is a must as I have had some great deals from Holiday Inn while saving points for free nights

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in the summer. The hotel is literally on the racecourse; a few minutes walk and you amongst the shops. The rooms were of average size but clean and perfectly adequate. Breakfest was included and ok, although we went towards the end of the breakfast service one day and felt a little rushed. Staff were ok but could be more welcoming.

Hotel is 5 mins walk into the centre of Chester so ideal. Free parking too when staying at the hotel which again is excellent. Rooms are small but everything you need. The rooms on the back of the hotel overlook the racecourse. Breakfast all self service but again all you need. Staff on reception very helpful booked a taxi for us for the evening to go out.
