Stayed here recently and I have to say I thought it was ideal for our needs. It's a little out of the way with not much going on close by, but after having reservations seeing the dated exterior we were pleasantly surprised with the interior. The room was excellent, exactly what we needed and was a very good price. Would...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 March 2017 via mobile

We recently spent two night here for the first time. Upon arrival I must admit I thought it looked slightly run down... However upon entering the front reception I was very pleased to see a nice well presented area. The reception staff were extremely welcoming and asked us about our trip to get there and gave us great information about...

We are back in Chester to visit family and unknowingly picked race weekend. When in town last fall we stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Chester city but were u able to secure reservations there on this trip. The agent suggested the Holiday Inn South - a member of the IHG group as an alternative. The reviews were mixed but...

Stayed here as a couple for one night. The hotel looks deceiving from the outside as it appeared to be a bit a run down but was fine inside. The hotel isn't in the best location as it is a motorway hotel. We stayed in a standard room and it was clean and modern with a comfy bed! Flat screen...

We booked several rooms for a group of over 25 people as a stopover en route to Dublin through Holyhead. I did not have overly high expectations as it does not look very attractive on passing. However, this hotel was very clean and comfortable. The rooms are a good size and the shower was excellent in a good sized bathroom....

There seems to be very little sound proofing to the rooms. You can hear what people are saying to each other in all adjoining rooms and as they pass your door in the corridor. We were woken up at 3am by people talking- not loudly, just having a conversation but they sounded like they were in the same room. Clean...

Very efficient check in for our coachload of people. Room keys handed out as you walked in through the door.

Booked a package which including an overnight stay with breakfast and a zoo pass for a family (would have been an even better deal if we had two children). Situated right on the racecourse with parking which was a bonus. The first thing that hits you upon entering the Holiday Inn is how friendly their staff are! This wasn't just...

As I wrote this, I've twice asked for my bill. Seen other people eat their food, pay and leave. It's genuinely been a 40 minute wait so far. Is the restaurant busy? Nope..... Probably 6 family tables. Not even half capacity. Hotel and room, good for the money, but I shall not stay here again because of the poor performance...
