First impression is "what is this", the lower ground floor entrance is in a road tunnel to a public car park, the hotel car park is separate and costs £7.50 per night, quite expensive I think. The entrance from the car park is on the 1st floor, you have to go down to the ground floor to check in, not the lower ground floor where the main entrance is. (keep up).
The rooms are good, spacious and clean with an extra large bed which is comfortable, the bathroom was ok too.
Breakfast, if it is not included is £10 with a voucher from reception. I found the breakfast experience a little unpredictable. Plates, coffee etc cleared when only going to the buffet for some more. Somebody else given your seat while away at the buffet. The tables not set, missing cutlery etc.
This let the hotel down in my opinion, it seemed very un-professional.
Generally this hotel is all that you would expect from the Crown Plaza brand.
The main reason for going to Chester was not the hotel but the city, it was well worth the visit.
