Expert review of Holiday Inn Express at Chester Racecourse

A worthy budget chain hotel option, within the racecourse grounds.

There’s nothing out of the ordinary at this six-year-old chain hotel, except the views of Chester Racecourse that is. And while the racecourse view can only ever be requested, you’ve got a 50/50 chance of getting one (the other half of the hotel overlooks a main road and playing fields). I think that the low rates and worthwhile extras make this a good value alternative.

Location: 

Good and bad. As the name suggests, you’re on the doorstep of the racecourse. There’s also a main road alongside the hotel, and train tracks behind it. The city centre is a 10-minute walk up a fairly easy ascent.

Bedrooms: 

You don’t get character or charm, but you’ll find a decent standard of décor, plus the usual standards like tea and coffee making facilities, TV, desk, twin or double beds (plus the option of a sofa bed for kids/a third adult) and big brand toiletries like Dove.

Who stays there: 

Race-goers on a budget, corporate mid-week guests and a livelier clientele at weekends. The hotel does take stag and hen group bookings, but tries to book out rooms in one section of the hotel so as to not disturb other guests.

Price advice: 

You get free parking, free Continental Breakfast and free WiFi in all rooms and public areas. Hotel guests get 10 per cent off at the racecourse’s 1539 restaurant.

Pros: 
Racecourse location
Good value and free extras
Cons: 
Sometimes noisy at weekends
Very little character
