Stayed here for 1 night to celebrate my birthday with my wife. Fantastic location and great value at £41 including breakfast! Rooms were very clean and tidy and we'll presented and we were lucky to get one overlooking the racecourse. Bar area was very modern and reasonably priced so overall very pleasing. I added on my comments when booking that the stay was for my birthday and when we arrived I had a card and bottle of wine in the room which was a lovely surprise. Thank you! All in all a very pleasant stay and no negative comments at all.

I have just returned from my daughters hen weekend ,we stayed one night in this holiday inn and as we were so impressed by it I came straight home to write this ,
The staff are so friendly they will do anything for you nothing is too much trouble, the atmosphere is so relaxing you can tell the staff enjoy coming to work and you could see when they were busy and they help each other out . It is a few minutes taxi ride away from chester centre and about a ten to fifteen walk , the rooms were really clean and the beds were amazingly comfortable. Breakfast was really nice and plenty of it , tea and coffee is available all day and night free of charge. Would certainly recommend .

Room Tip: Would not recommend the ground floor there can be a lot of noise from people outside

Stayed on a business stop over and was very impressed with the very modern hotel . Rooms were far better than I've had on other visits .
Rooms were quite pricey though for just a small standard room .
Breakfast was very good , tv's all round to watch the news while you eat .

Stayed here for two nights. Well located hotel only five to ten minutes walk into the shopping centre. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. The room was clean with plenty of space. Nice soft bed and a choice of pillow comfort. Complimentary breakfast had of plenty of choice - hot food was sausages, scrambled egg and baked beans. A good selection of various pastries, cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts and a toast machine all replenished frequently, also fruit juices, coffee and various teas. Would stay here again if we re- visit Chester.

My husband and myself stayed here for one night during the week, the welcome we recived was very good the receptionist was very pleasent and helpful. Our room was on the 1st floor and was clean and spacious nice bathroom with plenty of hot water. we asked about restaurants nearby and were told of two on site which we were given a discount card for, we ate at The White Horse wich is just across the car park the food was good and the staff very friendly. There is free parking at the hotel which is a bonus and it's within walking distance of the centre about 5 mins walk. We had drinks in the bar in the evening and these were resonably priced and again great staff. With a free good breakfast and free WFI this is an excellent choice of hotel when visiting Chester.

Stayed in this hotel with a group of girls and didn't pay alot so wasn't expecting much so was pleasantly suprised. The staff were all friendly, the room was nice. The hotel is only a short walk from the town centre so great location. Loved the fact you could help yourself to free hot drinks during your stay. Was lovely after a night out to come back to the hotel and have hot chocolates.
