Covid secure, friendly staff, good room service. Both evening meal and breakfast were good and kept hot. Only negative was breakfast was delivered to room 15 mins late, which could have been a problem for some.

This was the first time in a holiday Inn and most probably the last. Stayed here in room 309 for 2 nights. Got in the room and it was Baltic, but couldn't change the heating setting. 19 on air con and no radiator valves. When the radiator came on it was unbearable heat causing a sleepless night. I'm amazed that we aren't trusted with our own temperature settings. The TV had 5 channels and no children's TV. The bath plug wouldn't come out, the sink plug would hold water, the extractor fan didn't wotk, one bedside lamp was loose, the bed was uncomfortable and everytime my partner turned over it felt like I was on a boat. The Z bed for the kids was like lying on rocks. We went for food but decided not to pay £12 for a frozen Chicago town pizza so went elsewhere. We did purchase a fruit cider and small white wine for more than it would have cost in central London which was silly. £25 for the cheapest bottle of wine is a joke. On a good note the staff where lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was ok but again not as nice as the premier inn. Would I recommend to anyone..... Nope. The stars are for the staff and nothing to do with the hotel itself.

Booked an executive room for 2 nights but it definitely didn’t have an executive feel about any of it. Just a standard room with a sofa. Bathroom ceiling had brown marks all over it which I assume is mould. Carpet was covered in significant stains which I can only assume was sick from a previous guest. Surely get a decent carpet cleaner in or replace the carpets. Not sure what this hotel was doing during lockdown but a thorough clean/refurbishment may have been a good idea. Location quite good if looking to travel to local attractions and Chester town centre. Drinks overpriced. Pretty poor standard for the prices charged per room per night.

Hi haunq, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for posting a candid review. I was very concerned to read your comments about the bathroom ceiling, the stains on the carpet, and the price you paid. I understand your dismay, and I am sorry. This is not the joy of travel that we wanted for all our guests. I will make sure to share your comments with our team for the necessary improvements needed on our end. Thanks again for your feedback. I hope you would give us another chance in the future. Sincerely, Connie D Case Manager IHGService

Such a disappointment. As we arrived we have noticed black mould marks on the ceiling in the bathroom. I travel a lot and never seen similar even in other hotels. I could not stop thinking why on earth they give us this room, terrible for 115 pound. We arrived late and all the windows were opened on our room, it was really cold, and there was no heating to warm up the room. I tried to go to the pool, but if you are an overnight guest, they dont give you much of chance for available time slot. We went to the bar for drinks, it was a problem that we havent booked in advance, but for drinks... It is a bit overpriced, 2 gin lemonade cost 13 pound. 1 budweiser and 1 cider cost 11 pound. The bed was unconfortable, both of us were rolling ro the middle. Breakfast was ok, but you need to go for a timeslot then you need to wait until the serve you the hot breakfast as you are not allowed to touch. It is weird.. maybe have a breakfast somewhere else. This was the first time and also the last that I booked holiday inn, lesson learnt. PS. this was room 116.
