Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Norman and Jane Chester Mid Week Break
We stayed one night mid week, it was our third visit and our third stay at this hotel which we use as a base for visits to the Cheshire Oaks shopping centre and Chester centre. As always the room was clean and tidy, food excellent and staff friendly and efficient. Unfortunately it was difficult to sleep due to the rather noisy air conditioning unit outside our room, number 207, in an attempt to get some peace we closed the window and turned on the air conditioning unit in our room, unfortunately this was almost as noisy as the unit outside though with the advantage that we could keep the room cool, essential as it was a hot July evening. We would stay again but not in a room adjacent to the hotels main air conditioning unit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jg57 Overpriced
Although the setting for this hotel is beautiful I found the room basic. I asked for pillows from the selection and was given extra pillows which were the same as the ones already supplied. There was no fridge in the room in which to keep drinks cool. The room was small and claustrophobic.

Only observation is suggestion to look at lighting in bathrooms, not so good for shaving.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SDbus Pity about the bed!
Nice hotel, in an interesting location. Very friendly staff, but stay let down by the fold down bed with a thin mattress in the room. Not really acceptable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jules&Fi Convenient hotel near to Chester Zoo
I booked this room for myself & my 21 year old daughter as we planned a visit to Chester Zoo & also Cheshire Oaks Shopping outlet. It was very convenient for both & we loved the extra facilities of a swimming pool & sauna. I booked a twin room, but the room we were given was a double bed & a double sofa bed. The sofa bed had a very thin mattress & when my daughter lay on it, her feet were higher than her head & it was not at all comfortable. As it was only for one night, we shared the double bed, which was ok ,but had we not been related we would not have been happy. Also, when the sofa bed was extended, we could not use the dressing table because the chair was trapped by the bed, so we folded it back. Beds not as comfy as a Premier Inn which we usually use. On a plus side, the setting of the hotel is quiet & pretty & we watched the swans swimming past the restaurant window as we had our meals. Meals were good but not outstanding.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by M0027 Exactly what one would wish for
Friendly and helpful staff, a welcoming bar offering light meals, and a lovely setting on the canal and next to the waterways museum and an excellent South African restaurant a minute's walk away. Ellesmere Port town has little to offer but the railway station is only 10 minutes walk from the hotel.
I enjoyed my short stay and would not hesitate to return when next in the area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dungeith disabled parking
there were very few disabled parking spaces and 2 were occupied all night by non badge holders who could not be located
we have stayed at this hotel many times over the years and it is in need of renovation
the matress sagged in the middle and the lighting in the bathroom was poor.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mikediscovery Uncomfortable bed
Was surprised to find that the bed was a pull down bed rather than divan. This meant that the pillows disappeared in the gap between headboard and mattress and the bed as a metal frame moved and squeaked. The bedside lights were ineffective due to the framework of the bed surround and fairly inaccessible. Unfortunately this stay was not the standard we have come to expect from Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by winbin1 Very friendly staff and excellent service
We spent 3 nights at Ellesmere Port and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the service was excellent. On arrival we were upgraded at no extra cost which was a nice surprise. We found the room a bit too hot through the night and would have prefered to have had the option of A/C. Food was excellent and leisure facilities were good. I will definately use this hotel again when we are back in that area and would definately recommend it.

I imagine it would be very hard to find a hotel to equal the quiet location and picturesque setting of the Holiday Inn at Ellesmere Port, add to this the friendly and excellent service from all of the staff, and you've got a little Gem. Would be happy to go back any time! :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grandamac A friendly, comfortable hotel in a convenient location
My wife and I were struck by the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff starting from check-in. The guest room was clean and comfortable. The leisure centre, which we enjoyed, was an uncommon facility at a Holiday Inn. The location was very convenient to Birkenhead ferry terminal where we disembarked.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by superann Was everything we needed
We wanted a hotel close to a venue we were due to attend. We have been there before so we knew what to expect, and it lived up to expectations.
We will stay there next time we are in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jos25878 A warm welcome
I had originally booked a 2 night stay for our mini moon but ended up booking another night as we had been made to feel so welcome, our rooms were spot on as was the food. All the staff made us feel so welcome and couldn't do enough to help us and make us feel comfortable, I will be recommending the hotel and will be staying here again very soon. Many thanks to all the staff.

ALL staff were very friendly and accommodating. Clean hotel. The only minor gripe is the guest room windows could be renewed due to internal condensation of dg units but that is the only problem encountered during our stay.
