Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by Jill1965 Mostly good but noisy
Mostly good but room was above front entrance where smokers gather and kept us awake and woke us up in early hours. Also a delivery arrived early on Saturday and woke us up. Would be nice to have a bath and not just a shower.

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by JulyTraveller Not a great experience
Great location and extremely convenient for visiting the city and car parking.
The biggest drawback was the size of our room. The family room was tiny. When the sofa bed was extended there was no room for our suitcases or to move around. We ended up sending our teenager to stay with a relative who thankfully lived nearby. The bathroom was well designed for a small space but let down by broken floor tile and the black mildew on the shower fittings and wall tiles.
It was a very hot week and the room was cooled by a thoughtfully provided fan, but this was quite noisy. The corridors were boiling hot. Perhaps the staff were suffering from the heat too because they seemed to be rather wan and lacking in enthusiasm. Sadly I have to rate this as our worst Holiday Inn stay.

We booked this hotel for a family Wedding Reception we had a really good weekend Hotel staff very friendly and helpful beds comfy would definitely stay here again. Although other reviews stated breakfast was basic it was actually very good and not waiting around staff were constantly filling up bread juice pastries etc. Well Done

Had a really enjoyable stay at the Holiday Inn Chester Racecourse. The check in staff could not have been more helpful (Emma) and were way ahead of the normal assistance you receive in a hotel. The rooms were really good value for money and a great location for Chester/ Aquarium and Zoo. A hotel we would definitely stay in again.

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by Mike 23 okay Hotel only for a short stay
Easy to find (ish) and walking distance to Chester Wall.
Try and park close to hotel entrance. Staff were pleasant on arrival and checking out.
Room - hmm. Very clean and thought the en-suite one of the best I have used as even though compact, found everything to hand and very bright. Even the quirky idea of the bathroom door then acting as the toilet door, worked well. What let the room down was the cramped space and poor beds. We booked for 2 adults and 1 child. The hotel had shoe horned what I imagine was some kind of futon next to the double bed, which meant you could not sit at the table and you had to stand on a mattress to close the curtains. We dare not open a window as we were on the busy road side. The beds were terrible. The main double was very bouncy, almost like a waterbed as it swayed that much when you moved. The second bed was rock solid and it had 2 distinct creases in it which lead me to believe it was a futon.
Only go to the bar for a nightcap. There are plenty of restaurants out there including the The White Horse. The hotel advertise 3 in close proximity, however this one is right in the middle of Chester Racecourse and we received a 10% off voucher from Reception and additionally received a complimentary golf buggy ride from the hotel to the restaurant where food and service come well recommended.
