Where to Stay on a Chester Race Day?

If you have a passion for horse racing, nothing beats a race day at the Roodee, better known as Chester Racecourse.

While only one mile and a furlong in length, the historic location is internationally famous for holding the Guinness World Record for being the oldest active racecourse in the word. If you’re visiting the racecourse for one of its renowned races, whether it’s the Chester Cup, the Cheshire Oaks, or the Chester Vase, finding the perfect accommodation is important.

While Chester is home to an abundance of first-class hotels from the Leonardo to the Chester Grosvenor, where location is concerned, one option is clearly a front runner. Based right on the racecourse itself, the Holiday Inn Express Chester can’t be beat when it comes to watching races.

With 97 rooms available to guests, the hotel also has its own bar and breakfast service. As a result, those staying there can enjoy drinks while keeping track of results on the bar’s widescreen television or start the race day in the perfect way with a classic English breakfast of scrambled eggs, beans and sausages, or select a continental option to suit their taste. Situated on the racecourse, there’s no chance you’ll miss the starters orders looking for a place to park.

At the end of the races, when hopefully you’re ready to celebrate, guests of the Chester hotel enjoy discounted dining at the Roodee’s restaurants.

The Holiday Inn Express Chester is located at Chester Racecourse on New Crane Street.
