Bear in mind that some hotels in Chester are historic properties, and may be more busy and/or expensive than some of Chester’s more modern hotels.  

Star ratings 

Star ratings are a useful hotel classification system in the UK. Hotels are rated between one and five stars, with one being the lowest and five the highest.  

Ratings are based on things like cleanliness, hotel amenities and room quality. For the top-rated joints, which attract a lot of international customers, the linguistic diversity of the staff is also a consideration.  

The majority of hotels in Chester are rated three stars and up.  

Did you know...?

Chester FC’s football stadium was plonked right on the Welsh-English boarder. The club offices and car park are in England, but the pitch is in Wales!

Board types 

Do you want breakfast, lunch and dinner included in your accommodation costs? That’s what your board type is referring to.  

Here are the most popular board types in Chester hotels... But other board options, like all-inclusive and half-board (which tend to include breakfast and one main meal), might be available too if you fancy an upgrade: 

Room only – with this option, your hotel costs only include the price of your room, so you’ll have to pay separately for your meals and drinks.  

Bed and breakfast (B&B) – along with your room, breakfast is also included in the price.  

Variety is the spice of Chester life 

There’s a range of hotels in Chester, from the budget-friendly chain hotels, like the Holiday Inn or the Travelodge, to luxury lodgings in the Chester Grosvenor or Crabwall Manor Hotel & Spa.  

If you want to be close to the city centre, you could try the Premier Inn for a purse-friendly option, or Macdonald New Blossoms Hotel for a bit of a splurge.  

Prefer something on the outskirts? You could try the Mollington Banastre Hotel and Spa, which is about 10 minutes’ drive outside the city, or the Travelodge on Warrington Road if you wanted to be close to Chester Zoo.  

Get a super deal on your Chester hotel booking 

Instead of whizzing around the web, manually comparing hotels in Chester, you could save yourself time and money by letting a comparison site do the work for you.  

Being flexible with your travel dates, booking early (or late, if you’re a risk-taker) and checking whether your preferred hotel charges a cancellation fee could save you a bit more coinage too.
