Stayed here for a couple of nights. The room was as described and clean. Breakfast was disappointing, wide choice compared to some hotel buffets but all very average. It's a small town so the hotel being out of the town wasn't a huge issue but if returning I would chose a different hotel in the centre of town.

My husband stays here most weeks through his work. This was my first visit. A short stroll from the town centre. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and quiet. Plenty of free parking. Breakfast was very good, especially the scrambled eggs. We ate at night at the nearby White horse on the racecourse. Food... More

Ideal position for Chester which was a short walk away with all it s old buildings. Free ample parking which was a great plus and you could even leave it there after check out. Staff were efficient and friendly and a good continental breakfast was provided. Right next to racecourse........Rooms nice and warm. A great find.

Just returned from Chester. Lovely hotel had room overlooking racecourse. Reception staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. George who served our drinks was very helpful and even took the trouble to give us the history of hotel and racecourse. Would definitely recommend

Easily accessible and located in a convenience spot overseeing the race course. Car park is at the door step. The room was nice, neat and modernized, complete with free Wifi. Breakfast spread was good and tasty. We enjoyed the short stay.
