Chester Zoo, with over 15,000 animals from 500 different species including Asian elephants, jaguars and orangutans, is 10 minutes' drive away.
Chester Racecourse, the oldest racecourse still in use in England, is a 20-minute stroll away.
One of the hotel's restaurants -- The King's Grill -- holds two AA Rosettes and serves locally sourced food. Breakfast is served in the Jubilee Restaurant and snacks are available in the Waiting Room Bar.
