“Very good nights stay!”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Arrived at the hotel around 3pm, check in very easy and infortmative, got in the lift and straight in to the room. Very pleasant, clean room, great flat screen TV, great view over the canal.

Swimming pool & gym is literally opposite the hotel a few steps away, small pool but it doesn't matter, we didn't even go in there. Location is very good, on arrival it looked a little run down but as soon as you get in to the hotel's vicinity it's great. Being right next to the canal is very nice, the restaurant backs right on to the canal and a very pleasant view.

The room was good, plenty of room, bathroom with towels and soaps & body/hair wash. Room had extra pillows, ironing board & iron, hair dryer, and tea/coffee making facilities which were good. We had a great night sleep, very comfy and couldn't hear anybody else which is always a bonus, not nice hearing doors/toilets in the night, none of that in this hotel.

We stayed B&B and the morning breakfast was very good!! It was buffet hot food but my plate was steaming from the food and that was going down at 9:15 ish, which was very good as usually food is cold by this time. Very pleased with this! Also it's nice to see named yoghurts and cereals, they offered Alpen in sachets, usually they are just in open bowels, which again was a nice touch!

Area was very good, took me around 10 mins max (drive) to get to the shopping centre & Cheshire Oaks which we loved. Also loads of restaurants in the area like Nando's, pizza hut, a steak house, Chiqitos, Harvester, so very local & I'm sure a taxi would cost very little to them!

The only thing we seen that may have needed a little updating was the wall paper outside the lift on the 1st floor, but literally that is it.. so nothing really!

Over all very happy with our stay and would definitely stay again. Also reception very helpful, recommended a few places & said she would print directions etc off if we needed it! very friendly.

We were due to visit Chester Zoo (this hotel offers reduced ticket prices) however it rained all day so gave that 1 a miss.
Enjoy :)

Room Tip: Our room was good.

We stayed at holiday inn ellesmere port, whilst visiting Cheshire Oaks outlets. The hotel itself was a little confusing to find, but once you're there it's worth it. The location is great, with the hotel being situated on the 'basin' of the canal, so a nice peaceful view, with a small amount of parking out the front (although i think there was an overflow parking area, a short stroll from hotel doors).

On arriving, check in was a breeze, quick and simple with the receptionist being pleasant, we were on the third floor and overlooking the carpark at the front of the hotel. The room itself was spacious enough, with a large LCD TV, desk, chair aswell as a tub chair, the room was clean and modern, bathroom was also very clean with complimentary shower gel/handwash.

Overnight the hotel was nice and quiet, and we ended up having a good nights sleep, after the long day shopping! We got a great rate including breakfast and when we got down there the following morning we were greeted by friendly staff who were very happy to help. The breakfast itself was great, it had an amazing choice of hot food, and all the usual breakfast buffet suspects!

There are leisure facilities at the hotel, however we didnt use them so cant comment on those.

Overall we had a great overnight stay at this hotel, great staff, great breakfast and great room - a real gem for Holiday Inn. The location is good for exploring the local area, great access to cheshire oaks, Chester, Chester Zoo, Waterways museum to name but a few close by.

quick tip if going into Chester... use the park and ride, so easy, 10 mins into the centre, stress free, £1.70 per person.

We attended a wedding here so booked a room overnight. The room was as you'd expect from Holiday Inn - comfortable size, very clean, well equipped (although no safe or trouser press) and nice bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and well sound proofed so we had an excellent night's sleep and breakfast the following morning was super. It's a modern, purpose built hotel so the bar and restaurant are lacking a bit of character but they are comfortable and service is good. It's an excellent hotel for sizeable events such as the wedding we attended and I have previously used it for conferences as the staff are well trained and helpful. Ellesmere Port itself is not very exciting but the hotel is convenient for Cheshire Oaks, Chester Zoo and of course Ellesmere Port Boat Museum which is a lot more interesting than it sounds. If you fancy a change from the hotel's own restaurant, Jabula is a very good African restaurant just a short walk from the front door.

Room Tip: Wherever your room is, you will have interesting views of the canals and waterside buidlings.

We recently spent a very enjoyable long weekend at the Holiday Inn Ellemere Port - an ideal location for Chester, Cheshire Oaks and the zoo. A great deal from the holiday inn is that kids stay and eat for free - a good saving for a family break. The hotel is a little hard to find initially but once found the return trips are easy. The rooms were cosy - when the sofa bed was out there everything was very close. A clean bathroom and everything you would expect from a holiday inn. We had dinner one night and the food was good - the breakfast was ok. The setting is nice overlooking canals and the pool is in an old boathouse. An enjoyable break and the kids have a ball and cannot wait to visit again.

We have stayed here a few times, and have enjoyed all our visits.
We always stay here when visiting the City of Chester, Chester Zoo and Cheshire Oaks retail park.
Its in a great location on the old canal systems, with a restaurant looking onto the large locks, a great place to feed the ducks with the bread they give you in the restaurant, The kids also love it because the hotel has a leisure complex with pool next door, free for guest to use.
One of the better budget hotels.
