I used hotel as a stopover and didnt expect it to be so good. Lovely friendly staff good value food and great breakfast. Certainly use again.Far better than other " motorway" stopovers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DWB61 excellent Holiday Service
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rob22 Great service
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!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ETSC Not one of the better Holiday Inns
Whilst the room was the expected standard, we were very disappointed with the restaurant. At dinner the lighting was so bad we needed out phone torch to read the menu. Breakfast was dreadful! Whilst the food was good, the service was awful. The table, which was set up for us while we waited had items of cutlery missing. The staff all appeared to be in a state of panic throughout. When I requested glasses for the orange juice, we had to wait whilst they were washed and then semi cooled under the cold tap. The staff seemed totally unprepared for the breakfast rush. And the restaurant carpet was disgustingly dirty!!!

Staying one night.
Negatives:-If you don't know the area the Hotel is not signed well and not easy to travel from in the direction of Chester.
The room was very dusty.
Staff and quests smoke directly outside under the covered entrance forcing you to walk through the smoke. This is a problem that the manager needs to address.
Positives:- Bed and pillows very comfortable.
Staff were friendly, efficient and helpful.
Breakfast quality and variety very good with excellent service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brian2537 Hard bed and air conditioning unit failed
This was our third stay.
The room was an executive room and very pleasant, but we found that the bed was very hard and, worst of all, the air conditioning unit did not work. With the high temperatures that we had, this was most uncomfortable.
The manager was very helpful but could only provide an electric fan, which was far from silent!
Opening windows was no great help because of the traffic noise!
Please remember our previous stay, when we found that someone had managed to enter our room and use the toilet without flushing it afterwards. Not a pleasant discovery when we arrived late in the evening! (See our previous report).
We shall continue to support you but things like this should be avoidable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MLW28 Free wifi & very helpful staff
Efficient, helpful & friendly check-in by the reception supervisor, who provided lots of information & also printed directions to nearest Park&Ride for Chester.
Room on 2nd floor was very comfortable, but shower in bathroom was dreadful - more a dribble than a shower!
Unlimited free wi-fi greatly appreciated, something that other IHG hotels should offer!
Breakfast in the hotel was standard fare, but nonetheless tasty & well cooked.
We had dinner in the restaurant one night - a lot later than intended as the hotel was hosting a function and service was very slow, however the staff kept us informed of progress and it wasn't a problem. The food was OK - nicely presented, but not outstanding and the Cajun chicken salad required additional dressing to counter the dryness of the meat.
The staff seemed to work well together as a team and their friendly, helpful demeanour more than made up for the shortcomings experienced.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by squeak short break
two nights was long enough, however the bed was very comfortable- tv came out of the ark-- and breakfast i think had been cooked when noah made the ark. The food was cold and I asked the waiter when the temp.probe had been last used, he didnt know, the one breakfast was taken off the bill so we did not have any more food in the hotel. When we checked outthe bill was incorrect we were charged for four breakfasts when we only ordered two and we were credited for one also they charged us the price for Saturdays mail instead of Mondays..
Not a hotel I would wish to use again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Disappointed stay
I like to stay at the IHG group of hotels because they usually maintained to a consistent standard and if you visit a new hotel you have a good idea of what it will be like beforehand.
However in this case I was very disappointed with this hotel.
I thought it was a bit run down and could do with some TLC. The lounge is only small and the only table available to us was right in front of the Air Conditioning unit which was blowing out cold air.
We did take a bar meal and that was only average but could not stay in the lounge much longer because of the AC.
Bedroom was only average as the beds were too soft for our liking.
Do not think I will be back in a hurry.
