A last minute stop in the area and found the hotel to be everything you expect from a Holiday Inn, just be careful when making use of park

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jonnyd123 Tired and in need of overhaul
Staff were friendly but the hotel is uninviting from the outside and needs a complete overhaul both in and out.
Breakfast was nice but there were not enough staff and the food was not replenished often enough. Great location for Chester city centre but not to the standard of other Holiday Inn Hotels I have stayed at

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BJTD Excellent food
Quite an old hotel situated in a scenic area. The staff were very warm and welcoming. Services were good enough with the only complaint that our intercom didn’t work and this made it particularly difficult for us to communicate since our family was accommodated in two different rooms with no connection. I have to commend the excellent three course dinner that we were treated to in the restaurant. It was a definite stand out, so was the breakfast served in the morning. The menu also had good options with something for everyone. Our biggest concern was that the rooms were not sound proof and also that the floor made very loud creaks which could be heard in adjacent rooms. We only stayed for one day so we managed. All in all, we had an okay experience.

The charges for the use of WiFi in the hotel is far too high. It should be free in this day and age.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LLTB Super zoo break with the children, shame about the drunken guests arguing at 4:30am
This is the third time we have stayed on the DBB with zoo tickets. We usually book the overnight stay for a Sunday night but this year we opted for Friday night as this was the best price on offer at the time of booking. Check in was straight forward. Room was OK, not the best family room we have stayed in at this hotel but it was decent enough. We had to remake the childrens' beds as the bottom sheet appeared to be just folder over and didn't actually cover the mattress but this wasn't a big problem. The food choice was very good from the inclusive menu. Drinks were not included but we already knew this. Facilities in the room were as expected. The big downside to our stay and it may be down to us booking on a Friday night was the inconsiderate guests whom I think were staying in the rooms on the opposite corridor to the family rooms who decided to have a what can only be described as a drunk argument at 4:30am Saturday disturbing mainly myself even though our room was at the very end of the corridor. This argument was then followed by half an hour of someone banging on doors before it became quite again. This is not what I expect from the section of the hotel that is dedicated to family rooms. Spoilt what was a decent stay.

Room clean (If a bit "tired" around the edges.) Beds okay and sheets etc clean and fresh. Room amenities a bit sparce, but ample. STAFF WARM and freindly, GOOD SERVICE. Food expensive, Bar prices expensive! Breakfast good but over priced. Sleep ruined by unruly children in coridoors playing "knock out ginger" at our door/s! CLOSE TO CHESTER for meals/shopping/sight seeing etc. 10mins drive from zoo and easy to find Zoo etc. WOULD STAY AGAIN.
