Hotel accommodation near university campus

Hi,

We're looking around Chester University with son and thought about maybe making a weekend of it. Any suggestions for decent priced hotel/guest houses with parking and within walking distance of university but close (ish) to city centre please?

(Always used to like Premier Inn but coming in expensive now for 2 double rooms, as over 15 yr olds classed as adults and 3 adults not allowed in family rooms.)

If you are looking at the main campus then the Delamere Street Travelodge, is very close. In fact it is soon to be taken over by the university for student accommodation as it is so convenient. However, Chester city centre is very compact so nowhere would be too far from the university so just try to find somewhere that suits your needs and budget.

Be aware though that accommodation on summer weekends is not cheap. Look on the race course website for race weekends and avoid them. Also check the dates for he Chester Mystery plays which are performed only every five years and are being performed 26 June to 13 July this year.

Extion Park is part of the main Canpus- only a few hundred yards from Travelodge so it would suit you very well. Enjoy Chester!

No car parking at Travelodge as far as I know. The other Travelodge in the centre of the city (only a hop step and a jump away) has some sort of arrangement with local NCP parking. you might like to look at Brookside Hotel, very close to Uni and I think has parking, otherwise hotels on Hoole Road. Have fun!

Thanks,

Really want a hotel with parking, so looks like Travelodge is out then. Central Travelodge not got good reviews.

Will have a look at the Hoole Road hotels. Have stayed on Hoole Road before at Chester Stone Villa ,but they haven't got vacancies for date we want.

( Is The Dene Hotel still open?Stayed there years ago,although it is one of the furthest away up the road . Malwarebytes not letting me into their website for some reason ! )

Yes Dene still open though not getting good reviews recently. Lots of other places to choose from on Hoole Road.

Just tried e-mailing The Limes Hotel on Hoole Road, from their website, and that's come back as failed as well. Think computer trying to tell me something lol

Will ring around a few Hoole Road places this next week :)

Have a look on booking.com or laterooms.com. For some reason most places seem to be fully booked though there is nothing special on in Chester itself that weekend, apart from a music festival which runs for several weeks and would attract more local people than anyone else

HodderHobbitt - thanks, just tried that . Cheshire Cat only got the 1 room left for 2 on our dates and there's 3 of us .

All the other university open day attendees must have had the same idea as us and decided to stopover on the Saturday. I'm hoping to book the Friday as well (if hubbys boss clears his hol tomorrow!)

(Think) I've now managed to send emails to 'The Limes' Hoole road and 'Brookside Hotel' to see what rooms etc they still have available. Booking Websites reckon they have more or less every room left..............

Any thoughts on these two ?
