Stayed at the Hotel for a Works Xmas party at the Racecourse. Rooms clean and comfortable. Would class it as a Business Standard Plus. Popular bar area and friendly staff. Breakfast included in the price, buffet with plenty of choice. Would I stay again if I need to overnight in Chester? Yes.

Lovely stay in a great location. Both comfy and clean, breakfast included and at parking is free. Walking distance from the town centre. It is right on the race course so really good if you were having a day at the races then wanted to go into town afterwards.
