Historical Traveller Reviews of Crowne Plaza Chester Hotel
not up to expectationsfrom verso
good locationfrom mulranny
We were slightly concerned about some reviews that stated the hotel had air con problems and this in fact turned out to be quite true. The Double room was a decent size, comfy bed, decent size bathroom with shower, TV etc., but in spite of the bed being quite comfy, the heat in the room made sleeping almost impossible. We tried to no avail to control the temperature and had the control checked by the housekeeping staff, but the problem persisted. The window would only open a fraction and when opened the road noise was a problem.
The hotel is right in the centre, ideal for shopping and bars and restaurants and has a very small car park on site. Book your space in advance.
Stayed 2 nights - Saturday & Sunday. The hotel was full of weekend guests (Friday & Sat nights) - on Sunday morning we had to wait for 40 (yes forty) minutes to be seated for breakfast. Absolutely unacceptable. The hotel should have provided more staff - they knew they were fully booked.
When we eventually made our way to the dining room, the buffet area with fruit, cereal etc was empty. The hot buffet was appaling - anything left was dry and cremated looking. If I had known I would have gone elsewhere for breakfast.
Overall we enjoyed our stay in Chester but we will not be returning to ANY destination in the UK until after the smoking ban is introduced.
Good business class hotel in Chesterfrom DD9
Hotel ideally situated for the town centre which is just a few minutes walk away.
Would definately stay again.
Good Valuefrom markpool
The hotel is right in the centre, ideal for shopping and bars and restaurants and has a free car park on site.
The breakfast was included and it was buffet style with fresh fruit, cereal and English available.
Overall excellent value and would return.
Overall okay, but not Crowne Plaza standardfrom Dellb0y
The hotel staff is very friendly and helpfull.
Rooms have a standard layout. I've stayed in several rooms during this period, but in all rooms there were some minor things wrong (cracked washhandbasin, broken lamps, airco problems). The airco problem is quite serious. The rooms are extremely warm even when you turn off the heating. The airco is not working on every floor.
This makes the room during the night quite unbearable.
The hotel restaurant is very cosy during the evening. Staff again very friendly. The have a good winelist with even 10 wines by the glass. The menu didn't change during my 10 week stay, which is a bit annoying. The food however was well prepared.
I missed however an espresso machine for a good cup of coffee.
Overall I had a good time here.
Pretty excellent on the whole.from jak63
Too dear, not up to Crowne Plaza standardfrom DamienKeegan
Handy for Chester town centre, which, incidentally, does not open before 9.30 am. Try buying some cufflinks for a meeting you're already late for...
What really made me not want to stay here again was the air-con system. So noisy. So, SO noisy.
At £100 a night without breakfast, I'll be staying elsewhere, loyalty card or not!
Good overallfrom wifey01
Convenient and Comfortablefrom Michelle8882
The staff were well trained and friendly and upgraded us as they knew this was part of our honeymoon.
Very nice smart hotelfrom JulieDew
It is a good base for shopping in Chester, the races or North Wales.
The hotel had recently been refurbished so everywhere was clean , new and fresh. The staff were all friendly and helpful and any minor problems we had were sorted out immediately.
The rooms were quiet, you could not hear people in neighbouring rooms or in the corridors.
The restaurant food and service was very good. At breakfast there was a good selection of hot and cold food but the hot was a bit dried up even at 8am.
One word of warning if you go when the racing is on you will not get in the hotel car part but there is a public one next to the hotel.
Top Local Tips for Chester
book 1 near the centre We've stayed in Chester twice and on the first occasion we stayed a fair walk from the centre of town, which if the weather isn't good then this can be a bind. The Crowne Plaza was within a short easy walking distance from everything
places to eat 'The living room' in the town is a superb lively place to eat, the food is excellent. Mezze bar is also great for a coffee in the day or a meal and drink at night.
Piccolino There is an excellent Italian restaurant called Piccolino, located on Pepper Street (walking distance from the Crowne Plaza).
