This hotel is very conveniently located. Easy to get to from motorway and free parking is ideal. It was about 5 minutes from the centre and lots of shops, restaurants and bars are within walking distance. The rooms were spacious especially as we were staying for 3 nights. The breakfast wasn't great but we aren't overly fussed about that as...

This hotel is very convenient and parking is free on the day of check-in. Your may park your car in the hotel carpark ahead of the check-in time and tour around the beautiful river and town centre. The hotel is modern and comfortable and with nice environment being next to the green racecourse.

Stayed there overnight on couple occasions for business. The hotel is very clean, staff are very helpful and the breakfast was really tasty! They have the best sausages ever! Although I was a bit disappointed by selection of fresh fruit in the morning, it didn't matter as I was full from the full English. Room was spacious, very clean and...

A little noise from the road, but in the city so you have to expect that. Free breakfast buffet was extremely good, hot choices: two types of sausages (no...

On a recent business trip to Chester I stayed overnight at the Holiday Inn Chester Racecourse. My room was no. 101 on the first floor. The room was clean and comfortable but was directly opposite the stairwell so quite noisy. This led to a restless night. Breakfast was basic but warm. There was a limited selection of hot food but...
