Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly modern comfortable hotel Have stayed at this hotel many times over the years and since it's recent refurbishment of the public areas has become my first choice hotel in the Chester area. Great location and friendly helpful staff November 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Large bed - Lovely restaurant menu Had doubts on the facade of the hotel but once inside the staff were very welcoming and the interior design was very contemporary. The bed was extra king size as requested and the room was very clean. Dinner menu would cater for all tastes and the house wine was excellent. Breakfast was also enhanced by the option of a fresh omelette with fillings to choose from. All in all an excellent stay. November 10, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ideally situated for town I had a very pleasant tay in Chester at the Crowne Plazza. The rooms were comfortable. The Gym was great for a short work out and there are run routes from the hotel. Breakfast and evening meals were great. And your in Chester where there is a great range of other pubs and restaurants.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent hotel Please do not let the first impression of the main entrance put you off , Stayed at the Plaza for 1 night, a really comfortable room, with a good choice of breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful This was booked for our 25th anniversary. we had an amazing time at the Crown Plaza and Chester it self. What a wonderful experience. November 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Another stay in Chester I have used the Crowne Plaza many times for various stays and have always enjoyed the experience. The recent refit has added to this Hotel experience. Recommended. November 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff We had a trip away with our young baby - the staff were incredibly welcoming and accommodating, did a fantastic job of making it a great stay. The front of house staff in particular were really generous. November 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Short stay in Chester Generally a very nice hotel. Highlights were the staff service, the spa facilities and the location. Worthy of mention is the well above average food (for a chain hotel) in the restaurant and excellent breakfast. The room was looking a little tired but was spacious and quiet and everything worked. I would definitely stay here again. November 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel Perfect location, staff very helpful and hotel extremely clean. Will definitely stay at this hotel again. November 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chester Autumn Break I was fortunate enough to spend a couple of nights in Chester with my son during his autumn break. We have used the hotel often for the better part of 25 years and delighted to note that it improves with each visit. Starting with the booking and stretching all the way to check-out, the staff attitude is excellent. I felt we got a very competitive rate and always check this hotel before the competition when visiting the city. There is a modest charge to use the hotel roof car-park which is reasonable I think. The health spa is compact but superb with a variety of treatments available (unused by myself) as required. Food quality, restaurant comfort November 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cultural Chester Efficiency at Check In. Helpful and friendly staff, Quality of Food & prompt service in Dining Room. November 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Top class Stay Have almost run out of things to say, every time we stay it just gets better. The Service is excellent The Rooms are excellent The Food is excellent. The Staff are excellent. and of course the Hotel is perfectly placed for Chester November 1, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chester Experience Purpose of visit was to spend 2 days in Chester to celebrate my wife's birthday, Hotel staff were in the main friendly and courteous, the ex bed room was a little tierd and not as big as conveyed by the web site photo's.Food quality was good but not exceptional local restaurants offer better choice and ambiance. Public facilities were as expected for this hotel type and the location to Chester centre and local facilities was a primary consideration when booking October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location I'm fairly new to staying at Crowne Plaza hotels, but I really like the Crowne Plaza in Chester. The great central location and quality feel of the decor makes me look for Crowne Plaza in other places when I'm travelling. The hotel has a modern, but executive feel which fits well with work purposes, but also has amenities that would make me likely to stay for personal visits as well. October 28, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not bad but could have been better First room we were given was unmade and had to wait whilst another was sorted. We were told that was an upgrade but I'm not convinced it was. Room was clean but some of the furniture - for example the easy chair - had seen better days. We had an enjoyable night out in Chester but didn't get in until late and were then woken by housekeeping at 815am asking if we wanted the room cleaning! We politely declined. October 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value. A gem in the city. Was delighted - and lucky! - to be able to book a room at very short notice in the Crowne Plaza Chester. Very impressive hotel with a comfy guest room and quality surroundings. The staff could not have been more friendly; chatty, warm and welcoming. The stay in this hotel really helped make a first visit to Chester a really enjoyable experience. Would definitely recommend. October 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Lovely Stay I had a wonderful spa weekend as a treat for my Mum. We won a competition on Facebook and were delighted to receive such an amazing service. We were given an Executive room on the club floor which has a Club lounge with complimentary soft and hot drinks available 24 hours and alcohol and canope's between 5-8pm. We had 2 treatments each at the Crowne Spa, the girls at the spa were very welcoming and professional and my Mum even said it was the best facial she has ever had! The breakfast choice was plentiful and the freshest of ingredients. I could not recommend Crowne Plaza Chester more. October 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Crowne Plaza Chester I stayed here for a week at the beginning of October for quite an intensive course. I can't fault the hotel on it's facilities, the cleanliness, service etc The bedroom was spotlessly clean and essentially comfortable but for me the bedrooms were too hot, the airconditioning unit in my room worked fine and cooled the room beautifully when it was on - and here the problem lies, to turn it on you need to be in the room as you have to slot your pass key into the wall slot to make it work, since I wasn't getting back to my room until gone 8.30pm it only gave me a few hours essentially to cool the room as you cannot sleep with the aircon unit running because the bed is in direct line for the outlet and frigid air washes over you, it certainly wasn't too noisy either. This is only a minor gripe but I can imagine the rooms are baking hot in the summer as my visit was October and I felt too warm. Apart from this the service, staff and hotel in general is excellent. October 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great attentive staff This was a special few days for us to celebrate a birthday. It was one of the best hotels we have stayed in. We could not have been better cared for by ALL the staff. We would unequivocally recommend it to others. A big "well done" to Crowne Plaza Chester! October 13, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by staff are great rooms can be noisy staff are great rooms can be noisy, even on the higher floors October 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Checking issues but otherwise great Nice hotel, great location for seeing the sights of Chester. Check in was a bit of a disaster as room wasn't ready and then they forgot we were waiting, but we got a free upgrade in the end so was satisfied. October 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by All good All good from this hotel. Having a new bed is always a bonus. Food was spot on, staff were even better October 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I always stay here when in Chester Great hotel. The staff make this hotel. Always attentive and will go out their way to help you. Good food for all meals. The spa facilities are good, with pool, steam room, sauna and gym. Only 2 mins to the shops. See you again soon! Thanks October 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Experience My friend and I stayed here as it was on the doorstep of the Racecourse which is were the start of the Chester marathon was. It was literally across the road which made it so easy. We checked out before the marathon but the hotel allowed us to use the leisure facilities for the day so we were able to shower and use the pool after the run which was a massive help to us as we were getting the train home the same day as the run. We have previously had hassle from other hotels when asking to use shower facilities etc. but with the staff here it was no problem. The rooms were without fault and we got a great nights sleep. Little extras like towelling robes, slippers, sleep inducers etc. made the stay even better. Breakfast was excellent. I have recommended this hotel both on the marathon review site and to other members of my running club who may run the marathon. The hotel is situated at the other side of the town from the train station but it is worth a walk - they also have a car park if you are driving. October 9, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Bad - improve Cleanliness Comfortable Room and double beds, not so good the single bed solutions. Disconcerting lack of toilet brush. Sometimes flowed cleanliness of toilette. October 8, 2014
