Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jacchm Convenient for races
One of the only hotels with free parking. Ideal for race goers. Not luxurious but if all you want is somewhere to sleep the it is ideal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bluechick123 Relaxing stay superb front desk service
We stayed one night over a bank holiday weekend and would return anytime.
A few niggly problems such as room card keys not working upon trying to enter room quickly sorted
Front desk staff very helpful in trying to find a room elsewhere for a member of our party who had not booked and found hotel fully booked.
A good selection of items for buffet breakfast the fruit salad was first class
All in all very satisfied with quality of rooms and level of service throughout my stay and very good value for money if booked in advance

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Evo21 Overall stay
Room very clean and tidy and the hotel was an excellent local for our event at the racecourse.
We found the bed to be too soft and therefore had a disruptive nights sleep.
One thing which was disappointing was we were unable to get a drink from the bar both members of staff appeared to be doing nothing and when we asked the bill could be charged to our room it was a no! As residents in the hotel we could not understand. Why as other hotels offer this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Twotoe Friendly staff but laundry service poor
We booked at this hotel for 2 nights, the staff were friendly and helpful, giving us advice about getting about and local restaurants/bars. Our room was very clean, well decorated and also looked out onto the racecourse which was a great view. Unfortunately on the first day my partners jeans were soiled by a friendly seagull flying past us. We asked for the item of clothing to be laundered and were advised that this could be done even though our stay was short. On the morning of our departure the reception staff could not intiially find the said jeans but then found them tucked away unlaundered stating they could not have guaranteed their return as laundry was completed inhouse. This was a sad end to our visit.
You must visit the pub within the racecourse and ask at reception to be picked up, its great fun!!!!!

This is a good hotel clean and in a good position to the city centre.
The only downside was the food poor selection plus some items were missing. Some food trays were empty.

Excellent value in a great location - we weren't expecting a good cooked breakfast for that price - a real bonus!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KarenJohn Great location and clean surroundings
We had 2 very relaxing days in Chester. Before we booked at The Holiday Inn I read some of the reviews, and although one or two reviews had a criticism, this did not affect our wish to book. After our stay, we can honestly say we don't know what the criticisms were about! The breakfast arrangements were very adequate indeed, the staff happy and couteous and the rooms and hotel clean and bright. I think some people just like to pick fault as a pass time! We had to accept two single beds instead of a double, but that was due to the conditions of the booking as was pointed out to us. We would easily book again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brookesmum excellent hotel
Myself, partner and 21 month old daughter stayed here for 3 nights. The staff are excellent and a credit to the hotel. They were friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel was very clean, beds comfortable and maid service was excellent also child friendly. Very happy customers and will definitely stay here again when we next come to Chester. Room 315 has a brill view of the race course. Breakfast was good. All in all an excellent time. Go to the white Horse restaurant on the race course. Brilliant meal. Very relaxed friendly and family atmosphere.

The staff are always excellent. Unfortunately, we had managed to make a reservation for the same weekend as a rugby tour. The location of the hotel is excellent. The cooked breakfast needs a bit of a make-over as it isnt great but normally a decent choice of other options.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JPxx All very good except no decent beer
I arrived late at night and wanted a beer, but there was no draft bitter except Boddington's, which is not to my taste. I thought I'd have a cider, but I had to make do with Stella Cidre which is a sort of alcoholic apple juice.
If I'd been earlier I'd have nipped out to a nearby pub, but I wasn't, so I couldn't.
A lot of words for a minor problem.
Otherwise a very nice place with very pleasant staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FCFan excellent location and very central
Holiday Inn Express is located in the direct neighbourhood of the Chester racecourse with a short distance to the center (5-10 minutes footwalk). The rooms are clean, comfortable and have very good bathroom. The reiception service was friendly and efficient. Breakfast was included in the roome rate and had a good quality

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GROZ Hotel good- Bed Not
Our family does enjoy our stays at various Holiday Inn Express'
The only complaint i have is the Bed. Soft and not very comfortable.
On our second stay the bed was also badly made. I ended up sleeping on the mattress cover.
This will not deter us from staying at other HIE
On our second stay I was NOT recognised as a Priority club Member

Das Hotel lag für meine Zwecke ausgesprochen günstig. Mein Zimmer war für eine einzelne Person prima, für 2 wäre es eng gewesen. Das Frühstück war gut und der Service mit dem Transport zu 2 Restaurants nach Wahl sehr angenehm. Die Lage am "Roodee" ist sehr schön und nahe zu den Rows und allen Geschäften, weiteren Restaurants, Cafés und Pubs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kitty09 Excellent & unique location
This hotel was in an excellent & unique location. It is within 10minutes walk of city centre & our room had unique, extensive views over entire racecourse.
The room was very comfortable & clean. However, we were very dissappointed with the standard of breakfasts, with poor quality fruit juice, limited choice of cereals (no high fibre), only 3 items of cooked hot breakfast- sausage,scrambled eggs & beans( "don't do bacon" !!) & hard bread rolls which appeared to have been reheated in a microwave?!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SeasonedTraveller68 Still not impressed
Sink slow to drain, not fixed despite leaving a 'please unblock me' note by the sink.
Poor choice at breakfast. Orange juice is still undrinkable. What's so hard about providing fresh orange juice?
Toaster doesn't work properly.
Staff not iterested.
I've stayed here last year and the same problems occured.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SoxGe Convenient & satisfactory food
Very convenient for accessing Chester by foot and around area by car. Obviously widely used by business people\groups.
Heating controls not brilliant & bathroom would be enhanced by bath as well as shower.
One morning no fruit salad or similar choice at breakfast & limited choice of Yoghurt.- told delivery had not come in!! Cereal choice would be enhanced by availability of Muesli and dried fruit. On occasions hot food selection appeared sad & overcooked.
Why if emphasising environment were towels changed when not indicated need for change?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moore66 Overnight stay
I used this hotel as I needed to be in Flint the following day.
The hotel is well located, the rooms are what they are, that is spacious,reasonably equipped and well maintained.
The bar area is fine with the food on offer basic but fine.
The Real plus point is the staff, nothing is to much trouble for them, they were welcoming and friendly.
Well done HIE Chester.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 STUNNING location..
A superb view of the racecourse form our room. Literally 200m walk to the town centre shopping areas. 10 mins from Chester Zoo. If you're looking for a great location to visit Chester and the Zoo then this is it. Nice clean facilities, nice hotel, and a really really good minibreak. If you want more than this then you're too picky, and too much of a diva. Can't fault the hotel at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Moss51 OUR EASTER BREAK.
HAVING BEEN HERE BEFORE AND HAD GOOD SERVICE, THIS TIME WE WERE DISAPPOINTED FIRSTLY WITH THE ROOM WHICH WAS A DISABLED AS SHOWER HAD A SEAT AND PULL CORD. IT WAS A COLD WEEKEND AND IT WAS DIFFICULT TO GET THE ROOM TO A COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURE, ALSO THERE IS NO HEATING IN THE BATHROOM AT ALL WHICH AFTER THE COMFORT OF CENTRAL HEATING AT HOME IS HARD TO COPE WITH. ADDITIONALLY THE HOT WATER AT THE WASH BASIN WAS ONLY WARM NOT HOT WHICH MAKES IT DIFFICULT FOR HAVING A SHAVE USING A FOAM AND BLADE.
THE WATER AT THE SHOWER WAS FINE BUT THE DRAIN MUST HAVE BEEN SLIGHTLY BLOCKED AS THE WATER WAS SLOW TO RUN AWAY AND WHEN MY WIFE SHOWERED THE WATER WAS COVERING THE FLOOR OUTSIDE THE SHOWER. THERE WAS ALSO A SMELL.
