Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Zombie2 Some points for you to think about
Staff very good Manager excellent
But room allocated was opposite a noisy lift with a trip over, point at floor level (the lift floor not flush with the corridor floor) the room directly above our room creaked very loudly and the guest in it walked about all night so we had creaking throughout the night
It was windy during our stay and there is a oak tree directly outside the window so branches keep banging on the window (I had to get up twice to open the window and break off some branches) Tip, get this tree down before it grows anymore The digital clock next to the bed kept picking up some sort of interference and kept buzzing and crackling so we had to put a cushion over it. Finally we were unlucky to have a room facing the A55 so constant traffic noise all night and early morning
We stayed for 3 nights and we were both worn out through lack of sleep (we asked to be moved but the hotel were not able to offer another room)
Food wine beer and service good

Would recommend! The beds are really comfortable with choices of pillows. Breakfast was great with good choice and service. We stayed for a wedding so was so practical due to us having a small baby. Would book again. Thanks

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Caroline64 Great location and service
Spent a long weekend here with friends, ate in the restaurant on two of the evenings which was very nice. A nice atmosphere in the Bar too! Breakfast was lovely with a great choice and plentiful.
Room was adequate and reasonably quiet considering it is by the A55, I requested a quiet room when booked which was honoured.
Only downside was had to share one packet of biscuits left on tea tray.

We stayed for two nights bed and breakfast, midweek. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was spotlessly clean. All the staff were polite and friendly. Breakfast was plentiful and the service attentive and fast.
We enjoyed our stay.

The room we had was a smoking room and being non smokers, the experience wasn't very pleasant.
The feel of the hotel with it's cream coloured lift and the decor of the room made the hotel feel very dated

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bodgit Comfortable and quiet room
This Holiday Inn is very close to the A55 but we couldn't hear any traffic noise. Far better than a stay in the centre of Chester. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very convenient for N. Wales and Chester areas. Will definately stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Emmamac29 Excellent food, value for money!
Arriving at the hotel, we were a little disappointed and felt that the pictures on the website made the hotel look a little nicer than it was, but walking into the hotel we were politely greeted and the reception staff were very helpful. We ate in the restaurant on the Friday evening as we'd had a long journey and were really tired, the food was excellent! And so was the service, we could not fault either! Breakfast on both mornings was also excellent! Our room was clean but very basic and the bathroom could do with a bit of a spruce up but overall it was definitely value for money and I would recommend this hotel! Thank you for a pleasant stay :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cherry63 nice clean hotel
Would stay again, hotel room was a good size and clean and quiet. Staff were very helpful. We made the mistake of eating before we arrived but there are plenty of eating options as this is a busy area.
Shame you have to go two miles down dual carriageway to turn round.......

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by StuartH Recommended but with minor faults
My wife and I stay her for 2 nights and I would have no hesitation n recommending it.
Strong points were the friendly and helpful staff.
Location suited our needs well.
Food was good and reasonably priced.
The minor faults were with the room. We stayed in the Castle suite which I understand to be the best room in the hotel. The relaxing area was very large with comfortable chairs and sofas and I couldn't fault this. To me the minor faults were:
The controls on the very nice roll top bath were loose.
One of the bathrobes didn't have a cord.
There was 2 of us but only 1 pack of complementary biscuits (very minor I know but this is the best room in the hotel)
The biggest issue we had was the very poor air conditioning. It was very warm when we stayed and the bed is on a mezzanine level which became very warm. The air conditioner was so poor the whole room was too hot but especialy the bed area.
Overall happy to stay here again and would have no problem paying the extra for the castle suite again but please improve the air conditioning and watch the minor details that complete the experience.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jono4798 Shabby!
I've used a number of the Holiday Inn hotels and this one was very shabby! Dirty room, no heating and in desperate need of refurbishment. I will definitely not be stopping at this particular hotel ever again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 6allan good service
75 yards from the a55 which you cant really hear from the rooms so that's a good start. hotel clean and tidy with pleasant staff although not recognized as rewards member. basic room. the one i got had a side of the bed app 12 inches from the wall so if you were on that side of the bed you could not even stand upright and walk properly you had to either hold the wall or place your hand on the bed and squeeze down the side. small bar area which has no tv so quite quiet if that's what you are looking for. if you want to eat out you have to drive and its a good 5 mins to anywhere unless you want the maccy ds or independent diner adjacent to the hotel.was surprised with the variety at breakfast as there were cheese sticks and cold meat available on top of the usual cereals, fruit juice, yogurts etc. hot food also available.would recommend hotel if you are looking for basic, no frills and spills as value of stay was good.

Only a one night stay but reception staff very welcoming, food good variety and well cooked. Rooms clean and comfortable but getting a bit dated. One nice thing that all staff encountered stopped to say hello and smile!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CJB99 Room clean although had damp smell
Service was good, room clean, although did have a distinct smell of damp which was disappointing. This affected our overall experience at the hotel and left us feeling disappointed as it is not what is expected from Holiday Inn.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheFizz4 Lovely staff and great service
This is the second year we have stayed here. The staff are always very helpful and friendly. The restaurant serves good food, the rooms are always clean. The location is great if you want to go to North Wales or Chesire. Very happy with both our stays here. If I had to say anything negative, it would be the beds are too soft - this is of course a very subjective comment; I suffer from fibromyalgia and need a more firm matress. Overall great value for money.

We stay regularly at this hotel when we visit family in the area. The staff right from check-in, restaurant to housekeeping are all excellent. There is always a smiling face and nothing is too much trouble. On a recent stay we left three Iphone/pad chargers in the room. The house keeping staff found them and posted them to us. Perfect!
The rooms are always spotlessly clean and well equipped.
The hotel does what it says on the tin and the staff add that extra dimension of pleasure to any stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nickynoodles We will be back!!
I stayed with my family here for 6 nights (my husband, myself and two young boys, 2yrs & 6 yrs) and we all enjoyed it. The rooms are spacious (well, more spacious than others we have experienced!), the beds are comfortable (we reserved a room with a sofa bed for the kids, expecting it to be tiny, but it was fairly large without taking up the whole room & they loved it!) & the service is great (supplies topped up, cleaning to a high standard, etc...). All staff were very friendly & helpful. Infact we did not eat here, but only because we were so busy out & about every day, but the smells from the restaurant were appealing, (though a little pricey when we checked the menu!). There is plenty around to make the stay more enjoyable too, a McDonalds, a Costa Coffee store, a Subway store and a petrol station. However the inconvenience of being on a busy road meant that we had to go all the way to the next town to turn around & go back if we wanted to head in the opposite direction. Not a problem for me as I'm local so know & appreciate the area, but it could get annoying for others. A car is really a must if you stay here! We have already said that we would gladly stay here again, only wish there were more chances for discounts or special offers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TravellingPhil i would recommend this Hotel
I stayed in this hotel on Saturday 17 August..My room(132) was comfortable,clean & well appointed.I especially liked the Sky Sports on the tv in my room,a refreshing bonus.The panelling either side of the bed was a little strange & i would have prefered a bed side table but for one night this was of little concern.
We ate in the restaurant in the evening & the menu was varied,good value & the meals were well presented & good quality.On a personal note I felt that tablecloths & subdued lighting would have added to the ambience of the restaurant for evening meals.The breakfast the next morning was excellent & on par with more expensive hotels.
Check out at reception was efficient & friendly.
I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again & to recommend it.I have already reviewed it on TripAdvisor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Normski fulfilled the needs
After a gruelling journey to get here, given a room that already had guest in it - a mistake that was quickly rectified by a very helpful and pesonable male receptionist. Our stay was pleasant if not noisy (traffic from the busy A55 outside and the guests upstairs who seemed to discover a creak in the floor and operated it most of the night).
Bathroom had bath as well as shower which was a bonus.
Bed comfortable and extra pillows in the room.
Did not take breakfast so cannot comment on food.
Female morning reception staff likewise very helpful and pleasant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonny Very Pleasant Stay
We booked our latest one night stay at short notice and still got our preferred room - excellent!
As usual, reception was friendly and efficient, and the room was very clean and comfortable. We'd had a very long and tiring day, and passed a peaceful and comfortable night, waking up refreshed and ready for another tiring day ahead.
There was the usual very good and varied buffet breakfast, and it was nice to see that there was now a variety of cold meats on offer in addition to cereals, fruit and breads etc.
The choice of hot food was the same as usual, but it was really good to see that the bacon, sausages, kidneys, liver, black pudding, mushrooms, fried bread, and fried eggs were not in any way as greasy as they had been on previous occasions.
A great improvement, but still a little way to go to achieve perfection - Keep it up!
