Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CiscoTraveller Dont be put off by the 1980's exterior this is a great place to stay
Nice clean rooms, faultless service from friendly helpful staff and a great breakfast. From the outside the look is decidedly from the 70's - 80's, but inside all is well. It is a clean and well presented hotel inside and the staff couldn't do enough to help. Breakfast is a joy and the staff there were clearly proud of the offering and their hotel - it showed ! Rooms are clean and theres a nice large flat screen TV with Freeview HD - if you need it. Beds are great and the bed linen too.
Can't fault this hotel and we will be back. Parking is free.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Josi10 Spacious rooms with all amenities and great food.
We stayed three nights at Holiday Inn Chester South at May Bank Holiday. We were going to a British Super Bike Meeting at Oulton Park and chose somewhere nearby to stay. We were so lucky to have chosen the Holiday Inn as we could not fault it in any way. Well done to everyone there. J. Barker

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SaintC Great staff and good food
I stayed at Holiday Inn Chester South for 2 nights on business recently. The outside of the hotel was not very inspiring but once inside, I couldn't fault my stay. Some parts need a bit of a facelift but this did not spoil things for me.
The staff throughout the hotel, from check-in to bar and restaurant, were very polite and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made me feel like a valued guest.
My room was very nice and quiet. It was larger than usual with a sofa, which was a pleasant surprise. Bed was comfortable. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and I was pleased to have a bath and shower. The only issue was a large crack in the sink.
The food was much better quality than I expected (perfectly cooked rare steak) and really good value. There was a large selection of drinks which were a little expensive but that isn't unusual for hotels. The bar also had buffets - indian and mexican - and although I didn't sample these, they seemed popular.
Would definitely return here when next in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Meg70 Perfect place to spend the weekend on a Special Occasion
We celebrated my 70th Birthday at the Holiday Inn at Chester South.
The hotel is just out of the city walls on the Wrexham Road. If you have a car it is best to leave it at the hotel and take the Park & Ride bus into the city. It only takes 5 minutes to walk to the P & R park. Chester is one of the most beautiful cities in England and we spent all day on the Saturday site seeing. The weather was perfect sunny & warm, we even found time to take a boat trip on the river. We returned to the hotel and had a delightful Dinner. Our party consisted of 10 people and the staff had prepared a table specially for our party. The Food was excellent and the service superb. Will visit this hotel again soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lozy92 Great family room and lovely staff
We only stayed for one night bed and breakfast. The staff were very helpfull, nothing was too much trouble. Room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable
We used the resturant for ease and were very surprised by the quality of the food and the service
The breakfast menu was also very varied to suit all needs.
The Resturant staff need an extra mention (front and back of house) as nothing was too much trouble. They were cheerie, chatty and obviously happy to be there.
We would recommend this Holiday Inn to anyonevisiting Chester

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by deliciousyorkshire2013 great room shame about the hen/stag parties
We stayed as a family for one night and were really pleased with the room we were in, we had asked for a room in a quiet part of the hotel and it was on the whole. The room was great, the bed was comfortable and everything was clean and well laid out. The downside though was as soon as we arrived we were confronted with a stag do with young guys running around the bar area and later when we returned from an evening out looking forward to a quiet drink in the bar, there was a hen party going on in the bar. It was a Saturday night to be fair, but we would have liked to enjoy using the bar too, without large groups of noisy young people. Surely these events could have been accommodated in a separate function room? We had our daughter aged 10 years with us and really didn't want to have to listen to some of the language, as well as not being able to hear yourself speak. Before I forget I must mention that breakfast was very good and my daughter enjoyed the pancakes. The food and beverage scoring was done on our experience of the bar, not of breakfast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by David57 Overnight Stay
We had a very comfortable overnight stay with an excellent breakfast. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. My only complaint would be with the difficulty in the initial booking which was no fault of the staff at the Holiday Inn at Chester.
My initial attemt to book my stay by telephone was directed through a centralised booking service which was hopeless. Eventually I found a direct line to the Holiday Inn Chester (not easy) and they dealt with my booking directly and very well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ozzy12345 One night stay
From check in to check out the hotels staff were A1. Room was clean and spacious for an over night stay. Bar prices are a little steep but you expect this in a hotel.
