This hotel is comparable with a Holiday Inn Express or Premier Travel Inn except that it has a restaurant. It's design and facilities are not really up to the standards of a Holiday Inn. That said, there is nothing seriously wrong and it is a more than adequate place to stay. The rooms are modern but compact. As a platinum Priority Club member we were not upgraded and I suspect there is nothing to upgrade to...however, we were presented with a very acceptable half bottle of Chilean merlot and that was well meant and accepted!
Check-in was efficient, quick and friendly.
The room was initially very cold and we struggled with the air con system. After a call to reception, we mastered the drop down controls--why not post the instructions clearly in the handbook or on the wall mounted unit? Once the room warmed up and this took a while----this was a winter Monday and the room had not been occupied at the weekend----we were cosy and the Air con unit was quiet and efficient.
The restaurant is well staffed and the main courses were excellent--the rice pudding desert which I had, less so. Breakfast was not as varied as some of the best Holiday Inns but it was pleasant nevertheless.
Chester is about ten miles away and there is a good park and ride service about 8 miles away. Reception staff will provide you with helpful written instructions. The hotel is situated on the westbound side of the A55 dual carriageway so you have to drive 2 miles west and then head back east towards Chester, but the instructions are clear and easy to follow.
The staff are very helpful and friendly but this is not a top-of the-range Holiday Inn. It is a reasonable overnight stop.
