This place is really handy for Chester City centre (5 mins walk) and even easier for the racecourse (watch out of the window!). One of the big plusses (for those who know Chester) is free parking which is worth its weight in gold hereabouts. Ideally situated for trips to Chester Zoo and other local attractions too. Usual HIX facilities -...

Arrived back to the hotel late following a night out with clients. The night service manager George was an absolute star. Service was A1 and he even ordered take away for us. He served us all night and he was very polite and chatty joining in the group conversation and helping us with his greatvservice levels.

We are regular visitors to Chester and this is the second time we've stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and it won't be the last. It's located near to the centre centre, has ample free parking and it overlooks the picturesque Chester Racecourse.

we booked this as we knew it was close to the race course, but we did't realize it was attached to the race course, great views of the course from 1 side of the hotel. Breakfast was better than expected, all you can eat Sausage egg and beans, toast, pastries, cereals, fruit, yogurts tea, various coffees and fruit juice. Parking...

No frills hotel but nothing to complain about. Small room but small price too. Friendly staff. Basic breakfast but didn't expect caviar for beans on toast money. I'm sure it's an excellent place to stay if you're into racing.

This hotel is usually full around Chester races meets, as was this time 25th - 27th September. Our party (10 guests) booked 6 months in advance. Prices ranged from £240-£289 for 2, double room ensuite with breakfast for 2 nights. Ideally situated adjacent to the Racecourse with ample pre-bookable parking and within throwing distance of the city's bars and restaurants....

On the downside, the facilities are fairly basic with the rooms not being very well soundproofed and the beds not very comfortable. On the upside, a great location, very friendly and helpful staff, decent breakfast and a clean efficient hotel. Would use again if visiting Chester.
