Stayed last night, 1 of the comfiest beds I've had in any hotel I've been. Nothing fancy but just what you need, clean, got a bottle of complimentary wine, good shower. Parking good. Breakfast nice but basic could have done with more variety. Would definitely stay again if staying in Chester..

Had a couple of pints at the bar, around £4 for a pint of lager. Room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was good. Stayed here a few times and will always use when...

Good, clean, and reasonably priced hotel, with a great value breakfast thrown in! would thoroughly recommend. Very comfortable rooms, although the interconnecting doors with the next door room meant not as quiet as would be nice!

Stayed here overnight last week. Check in was efficient, and the receptionist very friendly. Were lucky to have a room overlooking the racecourse. Room was clean and spacious. Excellent location, minutes walk from the centre of Chester. Plenty of car parking. Breakfast was good, usual both hot and cold items. Enjoyable stay.

We thought we would try a Holiday Inn for a change, looks like we chose a good one, newly refurbished rooms, great location and reasonably priced. All of the staff were extremely helpful, the breakfast was plentiful, fresh and such a wide choice. The WiFi is free throughout I recommend the White Horse restaurant just a couple of minutes walk...

Stayed for one night on our way to Snowdonia. What a super find! The hotel is literally 5 minutes walk from all the sights of Chester which is a beautiful city. The hotel is also alongside the race course. The staff were friendly, welcoming and most obliging. The room was comfortable, warm and spacious. We enjoyed an excellent breakfast in...

Like the Newcastle Metro Holiday Inn Express we raved about last year, this one, with its view over the immaculate and beautiful Chester Racecourse, was just quite the most welcome place on the road map. Our room was on the third floor and... they could not be any more apologetic... as the lift was temporarily out of action the night...

We spent two nights at the Holiday Inn Express which is situated next to the race course and a short walk from the city centre.
