Staff were pleasant and this gave a good impression, sadly the breakfasts on a couple of occasions were not very good,I assume left under thee lights much too long. The room was clean and comfortable,

We use this hotel 2-3 times a year. It's a great hotel. Good clean rooms & a decent size. Comfortable beds & plenty of fluffy towels. Breakfast is excellent, buffet style with lots of options. The staff are friendly. Good value & recommended.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RichC2014 Nice stay in comfortable bed and great service
A clean and tidy hotel with customer focused staff. I had some problems with taxi's turning up and the young lady at the reception could not have been more helpful, ringing round to sort things out. Ensured I wasn't late to my meeting!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave 2 Spacious room and friendly staff
The hotel provided a comfortable stay for a two night visit to Chester, but it was further from the city than we'd have liked.
All the staff we met were very friendly and very helpful.
Our guest room was spacious and well-equipped for our needs, although there was litter under the sofa bed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Peter46253743 Good if you are a smoker
Standard hotel for holiday inn, so no issue there. However because I arrived late, only smoking rooms were available. I was shocked that smoking rooms still exist! I had a horrible night and I stank for the whole of the next day, I felt disgusting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Traveller 101 Whats that on the bathroom floor
The layout of the room and the comfort was great but on the morning after my first nights stay, I took a shower. When I got out of the shower a laid a towel on the floor and stood on it whilst I dried off. When I picked the floor towel up you could see a brown residue in the pattern of the tile grout. I reported this to reception and they apologised and said they would make sure the bathroom floor was cleaned properly for my second nights stay. Instead I got a note saying that floor was due to be replaced that week but floor mats had been left - which had the same pattern on it after I had finished.
I daren't ask what the brown staining was but I would ask if the room wasn't entirely fit for letting why was it let and why was I not given the option of a different room..?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mrs Chris W ok but faded decor
This property is ok but the public areas are faded and could do with an uplift.
When I arrived after 2 pm I was told the room was ready but when I got to the room I was confronted by a workman (a plumber) working on the room who had to be virtually thrown out as I wished to take up occupation of the room. Not good

It was a very pleasant overnight stay. We were fairly late arriving and were quite tired but we got a good nights sleep. We were just in time for dinner. There was a good selection on the menu. Although a little slow in receiving our meals the food was very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gasman Great hotel, very well managed!
Stayed here many,many times,very reliable, comfortable, good food, friendly happy staff, always willing to make your stay more comfortable and a good experience. The manager always asking if you are having a pleasant stay and genuinely cares. This is a popular place so i would recommend booking early, very competitive rates too.
My favourite hotel near Chester.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bilco Comfortable base for North Wales
Picked this hotel with a view to visiting Chester and north Wales, and found it and excellent location although it was an extra drive to the Flint exit to get to Chester and on return from north Wales coast had to drive to exit east of hotel to get onto westbound route. The hotel receptionist was welcoming and allowed us to check in at 12.30pm and drop off our bags. The food in the restaurant was enjoyable and tasty. Breakfast selection was excellent. Our room was very comfortable and spacious and the bed allowed a good nights sleep.
Would recommend very highly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cavey Poor breakfast
We stayed 2 nights a Saturday and the Sunday. The breakfast on the Sunday was the usual buffet and had a good choice and all well cooked. On the Monday the Buffet breakfast was not available as there "were not a lot of guests ,so the breakfasts would be cooked to order" . The bacon ,black pudding and sausages were hard and I would guess were left over from the previous day. Not what I expect for cooked to order and from the HI.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dragonboat Spring clean is needed urgently
Smells bad in the lounge and everywhere else in the public area.
Breakfast was charged due to no clear discription when booking, otherwise I would prefer the central of Chester.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lippylola More like an Express Hotel than a Holiday Inn
Not very clean there were hairs in the bath, rust around the shower head and the toilet seat was wet! The bed was extremely low to the ground and the valance was all crumpled up on the floor around the bed. The kettle had a lot of limescale in and the room could of done with a good dust! The corridors didn't smell nice either. To me this was more like a Holiday Inn express and I've stayed in better expresses elsewhere. I only stayed there on business so fortunately i won't be going back again!

Great place to stay very comfortable would stay again. If you want to eat out you will need to drive but i would recommend eating at the Hotel as the food was good.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by historian1936 There are better Holoiday Inns
I booked the Castle suite - great room but people clattering up & down the stairs on the other side of the wall kept me awake until the early hours and it started again at 5am. Serious problem of sound insulation. The room heater could not cope - hence the extra electric heater in the cupboard and it took ages to work out how to operate the complicated multiple showers/Jacuzzi.
I moved to an Exec room but that wasn't much better. Sounded like a herd of elephants above my head - you really need to do something about noise transmission on the floor - proper underlay and a thick carpet - it was an Exec room after all!
Lamb shank for dinner and I should have sent it back. Grossly overcooked and the outside had a hard inedible crust!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gill1000 Lovely staff
The staff at this Holiday Inn are excellent and really friendly. If there is the slightest problem, they are always happy and quick to sort it out.
I only rated the food as good because I wanted porridge for breakfast and they didn't have any!
I have had some really nice evening meals at the hotel, though. It's well worth eating there. There's a variety and you can eat healthily.
Not sure how thrilled people would be if they wanted to stay in Chester, though. Chester West is a bit misleading. The hotel is certainly west of Chester, bit it's off a dual carriageway in Wales.
Rooms at the front can be a bit noisy due to the dual carriageway.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, though.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bizman33 Good food
The hotel room was a little tired ready for a facelift
Due to location on services on A55 and poor double glazing the road noise in the room is high.
Staff and food I can rate
Room furnishings little marked and a bulb out
Tea making facilities were not replenished after first night

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Happy dirty in general
I know this establishment is crying out for refurbishment, but not an excuse for being dirty. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble but they are fighting a losing battle. The heating/air conditioning rattled all the time, even when switched off - not conducive to a good nights sleep, hence we left after one night.
The location, given as Cheshire West, is actually about 10 miles outside the town and in Wales!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tiny74 Staff are fab
Stayed in this hotel for a night for a weekend in Chester, it shouldn't be advertised as a Chester hotel as it's almost 20 miles away, taxi fare was 20 pounds each way !!!!!
Overall staff were very helpful, couldn't fault the room apart from temperature control , which resulted in us cooking through the night,our main problem was the breakfast, good choice overall but everything was cold, which resulted in us not bothering,20 quid for a yogurt and an orange juice, not good.....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Betterbuyone Family Break to Chester and Wales
We wanted to book an overnight stay that included a 90 year old disabled parent. Arran suggested that if we booked the disabled room, we could have the room next door with our own interconnecting private door. This worked out excellent.
The staff advised us that they had Xmas parties booked and it could get noisy, so we decided to eat out. As it happened, the elderly lady preferred to eat in the hotel and we enjoyed excellent food and drinks. The Xmas parties were well behaved people in bow ties and evening dress. They didn't cause any trouble. Great breakfasts all round.
There were three soap dispensers in the bathroom, but the one over the bath was empty. I found how it fitted and swopped it with the one from the shower. The room was lovely, but we sleep with the window open and the traffic noise woke my wife early. As in many hotels, the hair drier was pathetic. My wife had to hold the ON button all the time to make it work.
My Platinum status wasn't recognised as it should have been, I had to ask for facilities, but they were then granted. The reservation paperwork was not ready, but we did arrive 30 minutes early and were let into our rooms.
Not moaning, we really enjoyed our stay. Just a bit of constructive criticism.
