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

Thought I'd left my gloves in my room but I'd left them in the bar on the previous night. When I called the hotel they'd found them & they arrived by post today 😆. Very impressed with service better than some 5* hotels. Thanks so much to the reception member of staff who helped me. Excellent service through the the... More

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.

Located within a 5 minute walk of the city walls and situated on the famous old racecourse but with only selected rooms overlooking it. We requested and were given a renovated room which was spacious, clean and comfortable with a view of a nearby school playing fields. The room was exactly as expected from this chain and represented very good... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for Christmas shopping. Immaculate room, friendly staff, great location 2 min walk and in Chester town centre. Only downside was the breakfast, eggs, beans and 2 different types of sausages. Why no bacon? Surely not any more difficult to cook if you are cooking 2 different types of sausages. Just do one sausage and... More

Stayed here quite a few times and have to say it's gone backwards or stayed still at best. Newly refurbished room is nice and neat but the shower is very small. Banged my elbows when showering as the shower over bath has now been removed and is now tight unless you are under 6ft. Bed is similarly small. Breakfast is... More
