    About

    A contemporary Chester hotel near the city centre with free Wi-Fi and parking The Holiday Inn Express® Chester Racecourse hotel is about an hour's train ride from Manchester Airport (MAN) and a 20-minute walk from Chester train station. The hotel has free on-site parking and is a five-minute walk from the city centre. Up to 25 business guests can gather in the hotel's naturally lit meeting room. WiFi is free and AV equipment is available on request. You can take advantage of catering options for a productive working lunch. Just 10 minutes from the hotel, you can Walk the Walls in Chester and follow paths of long-gone Roman soldiers on patrol. Up for some sailing? Try a cruise on the River Dee through Grosvenor Estate . You can practice your swing and putt at Chester Golf Club or indulge in some retail therapy at the over 60 stores in Grosvenor Shopping Centre . Both are just a 10-minute walk from the hotel. Start your day strong with an Express Start Breakfast buffet included in your room rate. Dine inside at the comfortable, high-back booths and cosy tables or on the outdoor patio with views of the racecourse. Discounts at two racecourse restaurants let you tuck into tasty dishes with a bit of change to spare for a bet or two. And after all that feasting, head over to the fitness centre next door for a rejuvenating workout at a low daily rate.
