This hotel is handily located just 5 minutes from the city centre (less to the Chester city walls walk). My sister and I had a refurbished room overlooking the racecourse, which was very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was the standard HI Express offering, with fruits, yogurts, cereals, pastries and toast as well as a hot buffet of eggs beans...

The hotel is in a great location close to city centre, room clean, friendly staff. But unfortunately we felt it was expensive at £100 per night for a basic express hotel. Breakfast options were poor, NO Bacon, NO tomatoes, NO mushrooms, NO fried eggs, NO ash brownies. Don't book this hotel if you want a full English breakfast. Again it...

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.
