Crowne Plaza Chester

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Contemporary hotel within historic city walls, with heated indoor swimming pool
  • Overlooks Chester Racecourse & was opened by famous racehorse Red Rum 
  • All rooms have complimentary breakfast, mineral water, aromatherapy spray & free Wi-Fi
  • Some rooms have views across the Welsh hills


Crowne Plaza Chester is within the city's famous Roman walls, so you'll never be far away from the action. As it's also a short stroll from England's oldest racecourse still in use, the Chester Racecourse, it has strong ties to the racing community -- bizarrely, the hotel was opened by famous steeplechaser racehorse Red Rum in the 1970s.

Chester Cathedral, the Roman ampitheatre, the Eastgate Clock, the Mediaeval covered walkways, cobbled streets and timbered buildings of The Rows are all within a 6-minute walk from the hotel. Despite its proximity to so many historical buildings, the Crowne Plaza has a contemporary feel, and includes a fitness centre with an indoor heated swimming pool, a hot tub, a sauna, a steam room and a fully equipped gym. There is also a spa offering health and beauty treatments.

The hotel's lobby has a grand, yet light and airy entrance, with a huge glass chandelier and large artworks on display. References to racing are featured throughout the hotel, with horse-related photographs and art dotted around public areas and within its restaurant and lounge. The Stables Bar and Grill Restaurant serves a selection of food and drink including cocktails, Mediterranean mezzes, steaks and fish dishes, while the Stables Bar & Grill Restaurant Lounge serves light meals, desserts, and hot and cold drinks.

Standard rooms are decorated in pastel greens and whites with wooden furnishings; higher-grade rooms are decorated in reds and warm tones. All rooms are air-conditioned and have free Wi-Fi, and also come with complimentary bathrobes, slippers, newspapers, mineral water, aromatherapy sprays and breakfast. Some rooms look out over the Welsh hills and Chester Racecourse. Executive Rooms include access to the club lounge, which offers free drinks and canapés between 5-8pm.
