Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Darlodave Excellent location
An excellent location for a trip to Chester, staff are very friendly.
Didn't use the hotel bar or restaurant as there are so many local bars and restaurants within a short walk, although the breakfast is very good value for money.
Found the car parking facilities were poor, not enough spaces for customers we had to use a public car park which was very close and had to return each day with a new voucher which isn't ideal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rogere Very Good but Expensive Day at the Races
You'd expect hotels to bump up rates on race day and Crowne is no exception. Nearly £200 for a basic room is pricey. However, the hotel is very good, rooms excellent and food surprisingly excellent. Service was first class everywhere. Centrally located just 5 mins from race course or city centre. Overall very good and I guess the price reflects the popularity of race day!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Muzzerb Weekend stay
Overall the hotel was great....but the water pressure for the shower was so weak I had to run around to get wet!! The hotel reception staff were very friendly and smiley when booking in and when checking out. Centrally located so good for the city centre. Had a great nights sleep as It was very comfortable and quiet. I thought it a little expensive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cheryl24 excellent service
we stayed for a spa package and were not disappointed. The girls at the spa were wonderful, ambience was amazing and we both felt so relaxed. we had an afternoon in the sauna and Jacuzzi-one thing I would suggest is maybe upgrading the Jacuzzi/pool area as it is a little dated. This did not affect our trip, and we were treated very well with a late check out that was much appreciated and needed! we will definitely go back. Thankyou!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clive49 Great Weekend to go to the races
Found the Hotel & facilities to be excellent, all staff were very friendly and helpfull. Location could not have been better for the races and going out in the evening. The only down side was that the room we were in we could here the mobile conversation of the person in the next room through the door that would be used if it had been booked as a family room. However slept like a log on both nights so was only a minor issue. Will definitely go back again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Albro Nice Hotel let down by a couple of staff and poor Sunday breakfast
We stayed Friday and Saturday nights - the hotel location was very good and the room was comfortable and clean but the television channels (except the main five channels) were very different from the ones listed in the room guide.
The bar had two wall mounted televisions and both constantly showed (the same) football matches. Would have better switched off.
Staff were friendly and helpful with two exceptions. The waitress in the main dining room on the Saturday evening was very wooden and looked fed up.The man who greeted us at the entrance to the breakfast room on Sunday morning seemed arrogant and also failed to order our hot drinks. The Sunday morning breakfast (at around 8am) was very poor as the hot food had clearly been under the heaters for a long while and was hard and shrivelled.
Overall, for the five-star price for the rooms, we were disappointed and cannot recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RebeccaJayne Comfortable but dissappointing
The room was reasonably comfortable. On the negative one of the cups had not been washed properly and had dribble runs down the side of the cup which was really off putting.
At 3 in the morning we were woken by a disturbance in the corridor of banging and knocking until eventually I went out and asked them to stop.
On the positive the breakfast was very nice and the hotel is in a good location for town.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by willo1234 One night stay
Booked this hotel as a birthday treat for me and my best friend to enjoy a massage and chilled night in a posh hotel. Massage spa was brilliant- staff really friendly and would recommend the shell massage to anyone! for the price of £89 a night the room was good but not worth the price especially as breakfast not included and i was told WIFI had a charge!! room was clean and comfy just not as luxurious as I would expect for £89 a night! Staff very nice and helpful

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by redruby33 Fabulous hotel and staff
Stayed for 3 nights in twin room (26-29 August). The room was immaculate and cleaned everyday. The cleaners do an excellent job. Clean towels and bed linen was provided everday. Very comfortable bed.
Very pleasant staff at reception desk and in the restaurant. Breakfast was excellent with lots to choose from.
Only disappointment was that the chiller cabinet in the room wasn't working. Reported it twice but it didn't get resolved, but that's a minor issue.
Would definitely book this hotel again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dragon79 A calamity of errors
Quite frankly the worst experience ever encountered at the IH group hotel, for a premium hotel this was quite disappointing.
Parking was full and the alternative was excessively far away. Check In, not the room I booked twin not double. Bar service was cold, the most grumpy barmaid of the year without a doubt. Breakfast now it was 15GBP extra and was worse than a greasy cafe, bones!!! in the sausages and not much meat.
All in all a poor show, I doubt I will return!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BW1959 Excellent Hotel But For The Parking
We stayed here for a night whilst visiting Chester arriving at 3:30pm, thirty minutes after the recommended booking in time. Sadly it was not a good start. Arriving at the hotel car park to be met with an electronic message on a small screen stating the car park was full. Not a problem except you then have to reverse back down a slope, across a path avoiding pedestrians and other traffic. Reporting to reception we were then given a voucher and directions to another car park. Luckily the rest of the stay was very good but please sort out the car parking and buy some spaces and access to the car park next to you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dandy1 Great position and quiet!
Hotel is perfectly positioned to take advantage of Chester's beautiful city amenities, whether for business or pleasure. The hotel itself is extremely comfortable and offers excellent room comfort. Bedding is quiet luxurious with beautifully soft pillows. A plus to have a choice of pillows.
Would always stay here on visits to Chester!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chinaman10 Excellent as usual
This is my third stay here and, as usual, it was excellent. Staff are extremely helpful and courteous. They also remember their guests: my co-worker left a package for me at front desk more than 2 weeks ago, yet the concierge remembered and brought it up to my room.
The only recommendation I have is to improve the internet service. The wireless strength is good but internet connectivity drops intermittently. Not sure if this is a mechanism to prevent excessive use of bandwidth e.g. streaming.
All, in all, this hotel is great: good rooms, courteous staff and great location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mandy12 Excellent service and great location.
Stayed for a weekend to go to the races and meet up with friends. All the staff were friendly and gave excellent service with helpful tips for our stay. The breakfasts were excellent; variety of choice and fresh and appetising. The room was of a good size with a fabulous king size bed. Great location for the races as it was a 5 minute walk and also handy for the city centre.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Eoghanruaidh Large family room, good pool and restuarant
My wife and I, along with our two children aged 8 and 1 stayed here for two nights. Family room in exec floor was spacious, clean and comfortable although a little dark. Location was excellent for strolling around Chester city centre- less than 2 min walk to town hall. Pool area clean, well maintained and great fun for the children- shallow pool very nice indeed. Restaurant was good for breakfast. We had one dinner here which was good but made better as the children ate free! Exec lounge was well stocked, open 5-8 pm but children not allowed. However, we were given the same perks in Silk's bar- which was a nice option. Minor downsides- car parking, although widely advertised is expensive at 7.50 per day and the wifi at 10 per smart phone per day even more so. Overall, I would definitely recommend staying and would do so again.

Lovely to get such a good size king size bed!! Food all good, don't know why the room rates vary so much each time you looked on line never knew when you did get the best price!
All hotels now put a card in the bathroom about doing their thing to save the environment with the washing of towels etc and although we did hang ours up to re-use and didn't leave them on the floor we got clean towels. Also a new bar of soap each day for both shower and sink, that did seem a huge waste, other than that couldn't fault it and it was lovely to be back in Chester.
Would use again.

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza, Chester, for our 40th anniversary, including a performance of Othello in the open air at Grosvenor Park..
The hotel provided everything one might expect of a CP & the help we received from reception staff was exemplary in every way. Daniel in particular was a star.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ginge what more do you need?
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Crowne Plaza, Chester. From the moment we entered the hotel until the moment that we left the staff made us feel most welcome. The room has all that we needed to ensure that our short visit was as comfortable and relaxed that we could wish for, with the king size bed making for a great nights sleep.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone and look forward to returning in the near future.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by England33 Dirty room, dirty executive lounge and no reply from email to manager.
I am writing today to complain of the poor standard of cleanliness which I received from company. I visited for one night and stayed in room 408 on the executive floor.
On entrance to the room the room had looked like it was of a good standard of cleanliness as the bed was made and the room had been cleaned. However, on closer inspection there was a couple of things which hadn’t been cleaned properly for example, there was a little bit of faeces still in the toilet. However i just flushed it and it went away, this did not bother me. I was then picking up an item of clothing of the floor in which I seen that there was still some stuff underneath the arm chair in the corner of the room. I then left it and went to the executive lounge which on first impression was a really clean and nice environment to be in. However, we experienced some things here as well. For example, there was a fly (in which i do understand it is hard to stop this) which kept landing on the food which was supplied. After about 30 minutes off us being in there a member of staff entered to clean and replenish the refreshments however there was a really awful smell which I believe may have been coming from the dish washer which made the environment hard to stay around. We then left to go out into Chester instead.
